Get To Know all about this innovative service
House hunting service is an innovative service that I provide that is different and unique from all the agencies in
Portugal. This service is focus on the buyer interests and not on the sellers.
In Portugal the commission is paid to the agent by the seller and can go from 3-6%.
When you look for a house with an agency that has listed properties they will always focus on getting
the best deal to the seller.. even if they lead you to think otherwise.
With the house hunting service, I will be looking for houses in your name and focus on YOUR specific
needs. I try to negotiate the best price and will try to fulfill your wish list..
I’ll be like a dog looking for a bone and will not give up until I find you the best “bone” possible.
What are my expectations as your sole agent?
When you hire this type of service I expect to have EXclusivity! This means you will always contact me
first before checking a house, I’ll be your “middle woman”, your primary contact. You shall not contact
other agencies or owners directly, as a compromise.
Why can’t I contact other agencies?

What happens if I in the end don’t buy a property?
If you don’t buy a property in the end you will pay me a fee for my services that will cover the hours of
work, traveling, video calls, etc, this fee is 0,5% of the maximum budget you had for the purchase.
And what about if you find the perfect property but the owner or agency doesn’t want to pay a
commission fee because they are listing it for a lower price?
In this case, the buyer (you) will pay a commission that is similar to the one that I would receive if I
shared the commission with an agency, this means between 2-5% depending on the price and the value
of the house and the commission that is being paid to the other agency or the discount the owner is
making in comparison to the house market.
Will you give me and invoice for this amount?
Yes, I will provide an invoice for the percentage agreed plus the mandatory VAT in Portugal (23%).
Can I use this invoice for anything on the future?
Yes. This invoice of real estate services can be used towards the capital gains, in order to reduce them.
Imagine that you will pay 10.000€ in capital gains when you sell your property and you have an invoice
of 5.000€ for real estate services then in the end you will only have to pay 5.000€ as capital gain taxes,
to the government.
You can also use any expenses with maintenance works or renovations, to pay even fewer capital
