Investing in property is still possible even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Zmar, the 81-hectare Eco Resort is located in the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park in Portugal and is close to some of the country's most popular beaches, such as Zambujeira do Mar and Vila Nova de Milfontes. The holiday resort is now strengthening its accommodation offer, offering wooden houses for sale with private swimming pools. This is something that is proving particularly popular due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while prices start at 44.000 euros (+VAT). Let's have a closer look at these properties in the Zmar Eco Resort.
"These houses with private pool were already a project but everything was actually accelerated by the current pandemic context, due to the demand for accommodation with these characteristics. As Alentejo is increasingly a destination of choice for holidays and for investing in a second home, this encouraged us even more to complete this product which is known as 'Zmonte'. Buyers can benefit from the facilities of the Eco Resort, as well as making the house profitable by renting it throughout the year", says Zmar, in a statement.
According to the company, as with all "Zmonte" houses, during periods when they are not occupied by the owners, the tourist use of the property is taken care of by Zmar, which integrates the properties into the resort's offer, a feature which will provide profitability in the investment.
"In this way, we are reinforcing the offer to the owners and consequently to the clients of the resort, who can then enjoy this location which is in contact with nature, in the middle of the countryside and with beaches ten minutes away", adds the management of Zmar.
As far as prices are concerned - there are "various typologies ready to live in and make money" - they start at 44.000 euros (+VAT), for a property with two bedrooms. In the case of a house also with two bedrooms but overlooking the lake, where it will be possible to install private pools for 9.000 euros (+VAT), prices start at 56.000 euros (+VAT). Zmar is also developing a new area by the lake with new "villas" with two bedrooms and private pools from 74.000 euros (+VAT), the company says.
"By investing in a house inside Zmar, a land area of approximately 200 square meters (m2) is ceded for a monthly fee that includes the use of water, electricity, WiFi and Cable TV. You will also have free access to a number of Eco Resort services, namely the outdoor and indoor swimming pool, children's area, sports field, gym and pedestrian circuit, among others", concludes Zmar.
