We Do the Searching for You
In a marketplace loaded with unique properties, locations and prices, there are enough potential variables to make a wise decision. A well-informed agent will always be on hand to help identify the right options to meet your needs and budget. This may even include seeking out options that others may ignore. Below are some tips to finding the best home for you:
• Consider an improving neighborhood. Sometimes neighborhoods have evolved over the years, many going from shabby to chic, like down Lisbon or Porto. Changes in city planning, transportation and construction can all signal changes to a neighborhood. Early entrants into improving neighborhoods can be rewarded for taking a chance and grabbing a good opportunity.
• Consider a cosmetic fixer. Many buyers are reticent about staying away from unattractive properties. However, an unattractive property can often become a gold nugget with simple and cost-effective enhancements. You may experience lasting value by repainting, removing carpets to reveal hardwoods, or making other sensible changes. We can help with that through our network of local contractors.
• Consider a home with a ‘major’ defect. Disadvantaged properties are less likely to receive multiple offers or bids over the asking price. If repairs and related costs are reasonable, and you are willing to commit to a renovation project, this type of property may be a great option.
