RETIRING abroad is a big step to take. Finding the right property to buy in the right location shouldn’t be the difficult part. That’s why Meravista is helping people across Western Europe to find their ideal retirement home in the Algarve without stepping outside their front door.
The company has made it simple for home seekers to browse property for sale online, explore different areas and research living in the region by creating an all-inclusive property website.
Anita Van Huson, founder of Meravista, comments: “The Algarve has so much to offer retirees and we wanted to make it as easy as possible for them to find their perfect home and to enjoy living in this beautiful region of Portugal.
“The site will be available to browse in six European languages. Initially, it will be presented in English and will soon be expanded to target Portuguese, Dutch, German, French and Spanish. This means that people searching in their native tongue will have a far higher chance of getting the results they are looking for and will be able to find and read professionally translated information. Buyers can save their property searches, compare up to five properties side by side and communicate directly with real estate agents via Meravista.”
The website’s virtual shop window displays a vast range of Algarve property for sale. Each listing carries a detailed description of the property, its key features and amenities, plus a gallery of photographs. It also shows buyers where properties are located by pinpointing the area on a regional map.
People unfamiliar with the area can click through to a wealth of information on towns and counties, culture, leisure and shopping. Another click reveals the Meravista blog with helpful tips and the latest information on what’s happening around the Algarve.
A guide to Portugal property and a directory of service providers and suppliers, such as removal and storage companies, electricians, dentists, builders and home insurers are in the making.
Anita smiles: “Our aim is to create an easy alternative to visiting Portugal to view Algarve properties, by providing the widest choice of homes anywhere online, supported by all the facts necessary for retirees to make an informed decision about where they want to live and the property they’d like to buy.”
Conceived, designed and developed over the course of 18 months, Meravista is a property portal focused exclusively on Algarve property in Portugal, targeting buyers across Europe.
Company headquarters are based in Santa Barbara de Nexe, in the Algarve.
