Handling buying property in Portugal in Covid-Time

So how are people handling the purchase of real estate in Portgual now?

To me it seems really weird and risky to buy a property sight unseen and not being able to shop or even meet your agent or know much about the town. I know people are doing it - they’re doing up here north of NYC, putting in crazy bids on houses that meet the spec just to get something out in the country.

Are you using meta-agents? Online searches? or picking an agent from a major broker house?

How do you deal with finding a right price?

or are you just trusting one of the service firms to find you something right-enough, because you care more about getting out than getting it exactly right?

I have no plans to buy real estate, I’m now sure of my path, but I’m curious about how people are walking the path I left behind.
