About Morfitt Properties Tenerife
For those who haven’t visited the island for some time, some surprising changes have been taking place.
Lee Morfitt, owner of Morfitt Properties Tenerife, first came to the island in 1985 at a time when there was relatively little infrastructure. “There were just one or two hotels in the south and not an awful lot to do for the British residents who were buying property in Tenerife.”I decided it wasn’t for me.”
Later, in search of a home overseas, he returned on the advice of a friend. “The island had changed beyond recognition. But it wasn’t just the vast array of things to do that were the draw. There was also the proximity to the UK and the excellent schools – an important consideration for a young family.”
Months later Lee and his family left their house in Derbyshire for a new home in the Tenerife sun, buying an ocean-view property in Costa Adeje. In 2003 he joined what was then the largest independent estate agent in Tenerife. By the following year, buoyed by his own success, he formed the partnership of Crossley, Morfitt and Lennox, a meeting of some of the most formidable minds in the Tenerife property market.
Following many successful years, Lee decided that it was time to take selling property in Tenerife to the next level and to promote his own ideas in Tenerife property sales – thus was born Morfitt Properties Tenerife. Morfitt Properties Tenerife has quickly established itself as one of the key Tenerife estate agents, adapting to the changing landscape of the property industry worldwide during this economic downturn.
This ability to ‘change with the times’ is what identifies Morfitt Properties Tenerife from the many other Tenerife estate agents struggling to adapt their business models according to the changing market.
The industry may be in quieter times, but with Morfitt Properties Tenerife things are looking up for those looking to sell or buy property in Tenerife. I really believe that we have seen the worst now. We have seen a big increase in people wanting to buy a property at the right price. We have seen a much more confidant approach from clients looking at all types of properties once again. Lee is excited at the prospect of the upturn in the property market, he says. “When the lower priced properties start to move, people gain in confidence and then the chain of sales begin. At the end of the day Tenerife will be a property hotspot, the sun shines, the sea sparkles and stress is a million miles away – well, at least two thousand.”
