Damatt Property is an internet based, family owned property listing portal, run by David and sometimes assisted by son Matthew. We started in 2006 by collaborating with a small number of local agents promoting property for sale in the typically Spanish village of Algorfa on the Costa Blanca, Spain.
After an encouraging start, the crash came in 2008 which damaged many of those promoting overseas property not forgetting the many who lost their dream of owning a property in the sun. Due to demand, we made the move into providing long term rental properties on the Costa Blanca which helped many owners who had been affected by the crash by providing some assistance by renting out their property on long term contracts. As the years have passed, David continues to promote Spanish property for sale and the still popular long term rental. We have now added property for sale in Portugal, Cyprus and Italy.
As for Matthew, he is still involved, but is continuing his professional career, but still likes to have his input. Also, he recently got married. Given these two important things in his life, his time is restricted.
Recently, we have added Sonia to our staff who is based in Italy and has been tasked with building our contacts in Italy and deal with clients to find them the property they are looking for and guide them through the buying process in Italy.
Expansion has been slow, but measured, we have added a few other destinations for those who are looking to buy or rent a property somewhere other than Spain. They have not all worked, like Florida, but we learn and move on. Brexit has also affected the business with the added criteria for those looking to make the move full time and those who like to go to the sun for the winter.
Since the start, our principles have not changed, we want to assist those who are looking to buy or rent an overseas property, for full time living or just as a holiday home;
- get a good deal,
- ensure that their purchase is covered by good legal advice
- get the a good exchange rate when they transfer their hard earned cash to complete their purchase
- know the Agent they buy from is who they say they are.
Over the years, we have worked with many service providers who promise the earth but when it comes down to it, they fall short and only by us testing these people do we find their shortcomings. Many of those we are using today have been with us for many years and many we use for our Company and personal business.
The same goes for the Agents we work with, most we have, over the years, gotten to know well and in the majority of cases we been to their offices so we know they do exist. In fact, the first three Agents we collaborated with, we still collaborate with.
We welcome you to view our offerings and if you do not see just what you want, then do please tell us what you are looking for, location, timescale and budget and we will see what we can do. We have access to the same property databases as the local Agents, so you can save yourself time by providing us with your wish list and let us do the work for you.
We are here to help you find your place in the sun.
