Historic Press cuttings

Below are some quotes in Property- and Golf magazines - many years ago. These predictions regarding the development of the property market in the East Algarve became reality. Almost forgotten historic towns like Tavira and Vila Real de SSto. Antonio are now the gems of the Algarve. Property prices in the East Algarve have multiplied several times since then.

Algarve Property Magazine, Interview Sept./Oct. 2008 

›Most of our clients are looking for a Second Home rather than one to live in permanently‹, says Karsten Steenken. ›They want to be close to the town´s activities and facilities and feel part of the community. The sort of people who buy in Tavira are intelligent and down-to-earth. They know the value of money... ‹

GolfAlgarve Magazine, Interview Spring 2015 

When it comes to first or second homes in the sun, the Algarve has since the early eighties always been mentioned as one of the top destinations. Even USA Forbes Magazine has in 2014 ranked the Algarve as the best location for retirement in the world, with fantastic restaurants, shops, beaches and golf courses, low living costs ($1,500 a month), reasonable property prices and most interesting tax advantages, among others, zero tax for ten years on private pension income.

›Having been in the Algarve property business since 1981, it is my opinion that there have never been better reasons for buying a second or permanent home in the Algarve. Here you can enjoy what is probably the best climate in Europe, with over eight hours of sunshine in average per day and the most wonderful beaches. East Algarve also offers a superb infrastructure, it is very safe to live here and the cost of living is low. Health services are excellent, food is brilliant and the golf courses are second to none, starting with Benamor, Quinta da Ria, Quinta de Cima, Monte Rei, Castro Marim and Quinta do Vale. ‹


Deloitte Portugal also confirm: ›Portugal offers a special regime for new residents (Non Habitual Residents), which establishes a fantastic tax regime for pensioners and entrepreneurs of all nationalities.‹

I look forward to hear from you!
