Spring is well and truly in the air and it appears that at last, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Our prime minister will be announcing Portugal’s roadmap out of the lockdown next Thursday, March 11th and we are all hoping that by early April life will be back to at least the new normal we had learned to live with last year. Our lockdown seems to have worked better than anyone had expected and Portugal’s vaccination roll-out is ahead of most EU countries, so we are all hoping and expecting that Portugal will soon be able to welcome tourists.
Here at Fine & Country Algarve we have been kept very busy during the lockdown. Our offices have of course all been closed and physical viewings are still prohibited, but demand from international buyers is stronger than ever and virtual viewings with video tours have been carried out on a daily basis. Other news is that our Central Algarve office in Almancil is moving to an excellent new location in the centre of town. Refurbishment and decoration work has been ongoing throughout lockdown and we plan to be in the new office ready for our reopening in April.
Finally, we would like to reach out to all of our past, present and future clients, be you a buyer or a vendor, to offer our assistance in any way we can whilst you are unable to be here. This lockdown period has seen us help some of our clients in ways that we would never have imagined and it has been a great pleasure. So please feel free to drop us a line.
