Everything To Know Before Buying A Luxury Home In Goa

Things have changed. When it comes to buying a luxury home, location, luxury and experience have taken precedence over other criteria. Especially when it’s a location like Goa, and luxury and experience like we are offering.

Today, we have noticed that buyers are seeking a greater quality of life. They’re moving away from city chaos to the calm, cool and quaint surrounds, where the allure of natural beauty supersedes concrete jungles. They want to be involved, yet not carry the burden of making every last decision. Most of all, they want the process of ownership to be easy, legitimate and quick. However, when it comes to buying a luxury property in Goa — whether it is a primary home, or a holiday escape, there are some important considerations to mull over.

Where oh where?

When you’re on the hunt for a luxury villa in Goa, what you pay often times depends on where you stay. Sure, Assagaon is popular for its great food and entertainment, and Anjuna and Vagator are known for their beaches and vibrant night life. But lately, the places where homes are the first to get snapped up off the market are the quieter, more idyllic interiors like Moira, Siolim, Nachinola and Aldona. Buyers prefer to be tucked away rather than in the middle of all the bustle. These languid locations may be relatively tourist and crowd-free, but they also have easy access to basic conveniences — hospitals, banks, schools, groceries — and the things you love — eateries, bars, shopping. So when it comes to picking a luxury home in Goa — go off the beaten path — and discover a rare kind of bliss. Though, proximity to the beach, and airport always helps, in our opinion!

What are you investing in?

Today’s buyer wants luxury villas featuring walls of floor to ceiling windows that look onto rolling lawns of greenery. A personal swimming pool attached to an open to sky sundeck and a backyard barbecue patio. Grand balconies with reading nooks that overlook panoramic views. Charming al fresco dining spaces with palm trees offering shade from the sun. Sizeable manicured gardens with pickle ball nets. Open layouts where the indoors and outdoors merge seamlessly. Masterchef-style kitchens. Spaces that resonate with the buyer’s personality, boast of modernity, yet exude an old-world charm. Quality finishes. Smart technology. Sustainable practices. Concierge services. They want it all. Because, why not? The best part: these kinds of coveted homes DO exist — and the options we have may just leave you spoilt for choice.

How to make the process easy?

The process is always a crucial element. Getting a lawyer to scrutinise a property’s paperwork is always crucial. One that is familiar with Portuguese law is a bonus. It’s also important to make sure that the builder has all his chips in order in terms of approvals — from local authorities, airport authorities, health department, electricity and pollution boards, forest and agriculture department, etc. Getting a good understanding about Coastal Regulation Laws is another aspect to consider. Finally, getting the home or plot surveyed will ensure you know everything there is to know before you buy the luxury villa with private pool in Goa. However, when you buy a luxury home in Goa with us, we handle everything for you, offering complete transparency, trust and loyalty.

Who should you pick?

While there are developers by a dime a dozen, and the luxury home options are unlimited, buyers are looking for exclusivity, and a seamless experience. That’s really what’s defining the competition today. So what you should look out for is about the developer, or company’s reputation, who are their investors, how much experience do they have in a market like Goa, and what kind of set up they are running. Word of mouth goes a long way in this industry, so if you’ve got a good recommendation, getting influenced for the right reasons is never a bad idea. Most importantly, select the one who will guide you the entire way, and look after every aspect that goes into making the purchase. The Chapter checks all the boxes.
