Undecided on where to land... looking for lessons learned (Silver Coast Real Estate)

Just like many from this forum, we have yet to find a place in Portugal that we don't love. 😎 Unfortunately, it's causing issues, as we can't seem to decide where to land/purchase property. We plan to arrive summer 2021, and originally started looking in the Coimbra area, but that's changed. We now are looking more along the Silver Coast (Marinha Grande, Caldas da Rainha, Torres Vedras and Sintra), as these are all around Int'l school possibilities for our teenager and we really enjoy all of these areas!

We are aware that you can have more than one real estate agent working for you, but were hoping to hear from some of the members as to any recommendations you might have on agents/agencies? Like "we would go with them is we ever opted to do this again", or "no thanks, wish we would have chosen someone else". Would anyone who's had experience in this Silver Coast be willing to share contact information or your experience? Remax, Sapo, Idealista? OLX? ERA? CustoJusto?

This forum has been incredibly helpful to our family, and we greatly appreciate all of you willing to share in your experience(s). We're hoping that someone has been in a similar situation and has some tips. 🙂 Thanks everyone. 

Wishing each of you and yours a wonderful holiday season, and a much better year with 2021!!

Muito obrigada todos,

Dear Char,

If you are still looking for a property in those areas I can help as recently I have been appointed the property search guy for Expatsportugal to ensure you are put in touch with a professional agent for your area.

Please contact me at your leisure


All the best
