The team at Cerro Novo are proud to be celebrating 40 years in the Algarve, helping people of all nationalities find their place in the sun. Like thousands of happy buyers (and sellers), in the last four decades, Cerro Novo has watched the Algarve mature into a truly world-class destination for property seekers from all over the world.
Back in 1964, the grandfather of current Sales Director, Robert Edwards, begun to develop the west Albufeira neighbourhood of Cerro Grande, accompanied by Robert’s father, Allan Edwards. In the decade which followed, Cerro Grande became one of the region’s most favoured places to live, and attracted home buyers and investment from all over the world.
In 1981 Allan Edwards and his new business partner, Susan Bland formed the property management and lettings company based in Cerro Grande, and subsequently, Cerro Novo’s real estate business was born.
Today, the prospect of owning an overseas property or moving to warmer climates in retirement remains high on the list for people from all over the world, with the Algarve attracting over 55% of Portugal’s entire overseas property searches.
For many, the climate, lifestyle, security, culture and political stability of Portugal makes the country highly investable, either for permanent residence, or for a second home. The Algarve’s air, rail and road connections combined with improving local infrastructure also make the region ideal for international buyers, with Lisbon’s global travel hubs being accessible within two and a half hours.
From a pied-à-terre overlooking the ocean to a bespoke contemporary villa, Cerro Novo’s portfolio of properties is constantly updated online on their website. In addition, their Personal Property Finding service and catalogue of private listings aims to bring Portugal’s finest properties to your search, reducing the effort in finding your perfect home.
With many buyers now looking to permanently relocate to Portugal and often needing larger homes or ‘home and income’ properties, Cerro Novo are now offering personalised virtual property tours for many of their properties. Available on all popular virtual platforms, they provide a live viewing of properties, allowing you to experience the views, open the cupboards and even sit in the garden from the comfort of your living room!
Cerro Novo’s expert team, are fully equipped with the latest Apple technology enabling them to continue their support of every client from almost any location, and with their website constantly updated with the latest listings, they’ll never be too far away from helping you find your dream property.
Whether your Algarve property search is just starting or you’re ready to buy now, why not contact Cerro Novo today? They are located in their offices at Cerro Grande, Albufeira and available online, on social media, and hopefully will be appearing at overseas property exhibitions later this year.
Cerro Novo’s 40th anniversary may be a little different to what was envisaged, but whether you meet with the team in person, or in the virtual world, you’ll be guaranteed a very warm welcome.
