14,000th property goes live on Meravista

Algarve property portal Meravista reports strong growth after its first eight months in business and now has more than 14,000 properties listed on the site.

Meravista says its “exclusive focus on the region is winning over agents, property sellers and buyers alike”. Its latest figures report that one-third of local Algarve property agents now have listings on the site.

Its “unique” property map allows potential buyers to compare properties and search by location, providing a single screen view of property images alongside their locations pinpointed on the map.

Site visitors can search for houses, apartments, land or commercial properties to buy or rent.

The blog and information sections provide visitors with tips on buying property abroad and on what to expect from a move to Portugal.

Meravista is also set to launch the Portuguese language version of the website, with four further European languages – French, Dutch, German and Spanish – to follow. This will increase its market share across the European continent, helping the site to appeal to more buyers.

“We are very happy with the results as we approach the end of our third quarter. Visits to the site are increasing day by day,” said Meravista founder, Anita van Huson. “Meravista is committed to providing our users – agents, property owners and potential buyers – not only with the best property listings in the Algarve, but also with a community where they can share information and learn about life here. We recognise that buying a property is as much an emotional decision as a financial one, and our site aims to reflect this.”
