Our procedure

From the start, you will deal with one and the same contact person as much as possible and you will pay no commission (unless we only act as buying agent for you)! But because we work with a team, there is always a “back-up”.

A first contact is often by mail or telephone, whereby the part of the offer that is on the site can give a first idea of the possibilities.

Our experience is that even if we were to send you extensive video material, the reality will still look different. You then miss the all-important feeling of the place: could you feel at home there?

For that reason, it is logical that you come to Portugal to look around the area yourself. 

On the spot, we will show you the real estate you are interested in or give you an impression of the properties from our portfolio. Afterwards, we will discuss your wishes once more in order to get to know the concrete possibilities. You will not be the first (or the last) to change your wish list completely as a result of the on-site visit and the information provided!

If a suitable property has been found, we will negotiate with the seller on your behalf, help you with the preliminary and final contract of sale and make all the arrangements with the lawyer and notary. Furthermore, we can arrange the payment of the transfer tax, the registration of the property with the Land Registry and the tax authorities and, if necessary, help you with obtaining a mortgage. The same applies to service in connection with the connection/transfer of utilities, arranging a bank account, insurance, etc. These additional activities are service.

After the purchase of the property you can, if desired, receive guidance in building or renovating. We have contacts and experience with several builders and other craftsmen in this area. Of course, the cost of this service is not included in the purchase price.

The offer of Calvos Casas Trata is located mainly in the Minho province in the north of Portugal.

In the Minho, the Portuguese spend, in percentage terms, the largest number of domestic holidays, without this leading to large crowds or the feeling of mass tourism.

In addition, the area is increasingly popular with foreigners who appreciate the nature, the friendly people and the attractive prices of the Minho and who are looking for a holiday home here or want to settle permanently.

The tranquillity, atmosphere and geniality that come with living here are a relief after all the stress and bustle of life in the Netherlands.
We have arranged our offerings on the site as much as possible in chronological order according to asking price. Please bear in mind that in almost all cases these are only asking prices, but do include mediation costs.

If you are interested in the purchase of very affordable land, buildings that are yet to be converted or houses that can be lived in immediately, you have come to the right place. If desired, the service can also extend to providing guidance in restoration and/or new construction. The prices of restoration or (re)construction will certainly be better than expected. Ask about the possibilities of realising a house exactly according to your wishes. Quite a few people have already gone before you. On the independent site of mondi.nl you can find their references.

It is also possible for you to acquire a lot of space and privacy for a reasonable amount of money, whether by buying an existing house or by (re)building.

Please contact us, without obligation, and we will be happy to inform you about the possibilities.
