THANK YOU TO AL THOSE AT THE FRONT
The impact caused by COVID-19 and all governments worldwide on all businesses is enormous and likely to last for a long time – potentially changing the way we do business forever.
Weʼre coming together as a local community to honor the workers and volunteers who are making a difference. To the healthcare providers, first responders, delivery drivers, sanitation workers, mail carriers, supermarket cashiers, schoolteachers, and thousands of others — THANK YOU!
I wonder if the real estate prices will “tumble” slightly in the Algarve, as it could perhaps come exactly the other way around. We have experienced numerous enquiries from homeowners in Marbella who would like to move to the Algarve as soon as possible.
Other foreigners also feel that it would be more pleasant to spend the post quarantine time in the Algarve, especially as it is to be expected to see a second quarantine towards end of 2020. By then everybody would like to have their own little paradise in the Algarve.
We will see. It is quiet here and we have the advantage of being able to stay away from others. Apolónia supermarket is very precise when it comes to dealing with clients. UberEats, online deliveries and several drive-thrus (i.e. Worten, Staples) are very well organised.
Gambela’s hospital is prepared and there is a “drive-thru” testing facility at the Estadio do Algarve. All in all, I think there’s really no better place to get through this difficult time.
But at the moment most deals are in a deep sleep until the re-opening of the borders.
It has never been more important to maintain our online presence.
Coronavirus got you worried?
Many of the challenges we face won’t be cured by blowing water colors through a straw, baking bread, or playing with clay.
Nonetheless, spending time making something you enjoy can be a welcome reprieve from a daily onslaught of challenging news and circumstances, such as looking for your future second home in the Algarve in post-Corona times.
Virtual tours have already been part of our properties on www.a1-algarve.com. The Confidential Collection has its own private virtual tours which are being sent once you show your interest. And we are currently working on more footages which we can show you.
We also offer FaceTime and Skype viewings, so please contact us if you would like to see a property virtually from your sofa at home. #stayathome
