At Exclusive Algarve Villas we are here to assist you all the way with the sale of your property and ensure that you optimize all aspects of selling your real estate asset towards a successful sale.

Observe your property prior to put it on the market it for sale, and now answer, how appealing is your property to buyers? What can you do to improve your villa or apartment for sale in the Algarve?

You guess it right, there´s homework to do!


Is my property’s maintenance all done?

Staging your property for sale is essential to attract buyers in today´s real estate market. Make sure that you keep your villa or apartment clean of clutter and personal items, use neutral colors throughout, open windows and turn on lights during viewings.

It is equally essential to present your property for sale to buyers well maintained. When you’ve been living in the property for many years, small maintenance jobs can be overlooked. Is your home in need of tender love and care?

Take care of any repairs needed before putting the property on the market for sale, to achieve the best selling price on your villa or apartment for sale. If you think that your property needs a new kitchen or bathroom, leave it to the next owner, as the buyers often welcome the idea of small refurbishments.
