Initially planning to buy an apartment for rental purposes, Sabrina's plans shifted when she fell in love with Ericeira's coastal charm. Know all about her story.

How do you go from the initial desire to invest in a property to the irresistible urge to buy and live in your dream home? Sabrina Boehm wanted to buy an apartment in Ericeira in March 2023 to rent out. But the allure of Ericeira's coastal landscape changed her plans. With the swift support of Your Property Advisor, her property search evolved into a quest to find her dream home with one clear criterion: proximity to the sea.

Sabrina's pursuit of her dream home proved difficult, as the desired location is in a region with numerous REN (Ecologically Sensitive Areas) and the availability of properties is therefore limited. Sabrina aimed for an already built house (with a license) to avoid bureaucratic delays.

"YPA makes an unbeatable team" according to Sabrina Boehm.

She praised our property advisor Rita Xara-Brasil for her professionalism and dedication, highlighting her unique ability to understand Sabrina's wishes and dreams and to make her feel that Rita was looking after her exclusively (despite Rita's busy schedule). Our property advisor Gonçalo Roxo was also praised for his architectural expertise and market knowledge, as well as for connecting Sabrina with trusted professionals from his extensive network to clear up any lingering doubts.

After numerous viewings and attempts to view houses that weren't even on the market (with the help of YPA), and after evaluating some properties that didn't meet expectations, the long-awaited dream finally came true: a large plot of land, 3,500 m2, with planned construction, but which was halted due to budget constraints. The best thing about it? An unobstructed view that fulfills the most important requirement... the sea!

YPA immediately assessed the feasibility of this project, taking into account the adjustments made over the years to the municipal master plans (PDMs) of each district. Once confirmed, the Promissory Contract of Purchase and Sale (CPCV) was signed, subject to the granting of a building permit by the municipality, which arrived a few months later.

The YPA team were delighted to have helped make a dream come true and the feedback couldn't have been more positive.

In the words of the client, "If you're seeking professionals who genuinely prioritize your needs, deliver exceptional service and ensure an enjoyable experience, look no further. I highly recommend YPA without hesitation!"
