If you are in the market for a villa that is more than just a home then high end homes or luxury condos are a prominent choice. Buying a luxury villa may not be the choice of many however there are a variety of listing on the market that can be explored. From having a spacious infinity pool overlooking the beach to golf courses attached to the listing there are a plethora of choices. Luxury homes bring in plenty of comforts for those looking for a home that reflects their lifestyle and way of life.
The search process is different: Many high-end properties go un-listed to protect the sellers privacy. Not usually seen on the internet or a typical property listing website, these proeprties are generally found with realtors from the area.
Look beyond the photos: While shortlisting properties we would recommend to look beyond the photos as more than often the front elevation of large houses aren’t photogenic. What might appear to seeing in person or through perhaps a viewing from Google Earth may not justify what is seen in photos.
Working with a Local Realtor: It is absolutely critical to work with a relator that is familiar with the local area that you are looking to buy in. Not only are they familiar with the area but they also have better access to high-end properties. Scouting for properties that are on the market are a lot easier this way as well.
Assess the surroundings: If the villa has a view to-die-for make sure you are aware if the view can be obstructed with other constructions in the future. This information can be gathered by looking at survey plans from the Town and Country Planning Office in Panjim or Margao.

A cooking space that is outdoors needs to be equipped with appliances such as a gas grill and a partly functioning kitchen counter that can be used for prep-work along with a sink. A fridge for keeping drinks chilled and for storage is always preferable. Swimming pools with a an inbuilt Jacuzzi with changing cabanas form a part of the necessities of a luxury buyer’s list as well. Privacy with swimming pools is a must.
