Ideal Homes Aftersales provides a service which was initially developed in 2014 as an add-on to the buying process. It was recognised in 2016 as a great way to build a long-standing relationship with clients along with providing a smooth transition to their home ownership abroad.


Previously, this service was only offered to clients who bought property through Ideal Homes, however, it is now available to any owner interested in property and/or rental management services.


The different services offered within Aftersales are as follows:


Key Ready Service - No longer exclusive to Ideal Homes buyers, this service is available to any homeowners in the Algarve regardless of whether they use other services within Ideal Homes. This package makes buying a home simple and easy for clients who are not in the country. The team is able to assist new homeowners from purchase decisions to move-in and beyond such as furniture recommendations and the set-up of utilities (water, electric, internet etc.).


Contracts put in place with homeowners allows the team to be key holders of properties where they are able to oversee any building, renovating, gardening, landscaping, pool maintenance etc. They also do an initial check of the property before owners or guests arrive (if they decide to rent), ensuring all fixtures and fittings work along with creating an inventory on all items.


Property Management Services - Similar to Key Ready except it’s an ongoing service where clients are provided with monthly reports and checks on their property as they’re not here to oversee or take care of any issues themselves. 


The team will even go above and beyond by checking properties more than the required once a month especially under adverse weather conditions, ensuring the client's home is not suffering from any damage or leaks that would not be noticeable under normal weather conditions. 


They are also able to assist with more personal requests such as assisting with payments (IMI tax), post collection, cleaning/laundry, and even grocery shopping upon the homeowner's arrival.


Rental Management Services - For clients interested in renting out their property for an additional income, Rental Management Services will include Property Management and offer Key Ready at the set fee. This service ensures their property is seen by would-be holidaymakers in the competitive rentals market, and also takes the stress out of the bookings process.


This includes full set up and preparation where the team puts the client in touch with a reputable accountant who assists with acquisition of AL license, public liability insurance, home insurance, VAT registration SEF etc. The team completes SEF reporting on behalf of the owners to ensure guidelines are followed. 


The team gets the property ready for rentals by organising the installation of safety equipment as per health and safety guidelines, fire extinguishers, first aid kit etc. 


Upon arrival, guests receive a personalised meet and greet service, they also be provided with a 24 hour telephone number which can be called incase of an emergency. The team can also organise excursions and extra services such as private chefs, extra cleaning etc.


Benefits to the client include: visibility of their home, maximised by the placement of their advert across an established network.
