We know the true value of your property
Investment in Lisbon
Today Lisbon is a highly popular city for real estate investment - Portugal is one of the top European countries that offers the best tax benefits and one of the current meccas of tourism - whether it is short term rentals and other types of offers for tourists - this capital city offers everything one needs for a high quality of life.
Lisbon is one of the gateways to the European continent, thanks to its seafront position, enjoying the mildest climates in Europe, with around 3200 hours of sunshine a year and benefiting from its proximity to northern Africa and the temperate Atlantic Ocean.
Surrounded by an impressive stretch of beaches, Lisbon is also a seaside resort with a high-quality hotel offer, taking advantage of the proximity to Estoril Line, the Cascais-Sintra Coast and Vila Sintra.
With a highly extensive road network, tourist and cultural attractions, the famous Mediterranean gastronomy and the quality of its wine, Lisbon also has the added advantage of being connected with the rest of Europe and the world, via air and sea. What's more, it is one of the safest cities in Europe.
We must also highlight the quality educational and medical system for residents, the street trade, fairs and markets, all kinds of shopping malls and access to the best designer brands.
Golden Visa in Portugal - Residence Permit for Investment
The law that has been in force since October 8th, 2012, allows the Portuguese passport as well as other incentives (and consequently access to the Schengen area) to be granted to anyone who makes real estate investments worth more than 500,000 euros, making it one of the key factors for the foreign public to make an investment in Lisbon.
Tax Regime for Non-habitual Residents
There are advantageous tax arrangements for non-resident citizens, professionals with successful businesses, as well as those with high wealth or purchasing power.
Prospects for the Future
The latest indicators of the Portuguese economy show signs of recovery, considering the current real estate market's situation, there is also a resumption of dynamism, with a general opinion that the worst times are over.
In the property buying and selling market, the recovery in some areas was accompanied by an exponential growth in others, benefiting from the increase of tourism and tax regimes that to a large extent are beneficial for foreigners and non-residents.
Profile of Property Buyers in Lisbon
The profile of the buyer varies according to the area of the city. If in the historical centres there has been a great demand from European buyers, in the eastern, the new part of the town and the river, the demand is greater from countries like China, Angola and Brazil, and the demand by the local market varies widely according to the more traditional and prestigious zones, between the upper and upper middle class. For the foreign buyer, the aim is to buy a second home for short-term holidays, long-term letting, investment or for the benefit of more favourable tax regimes. It must be noted that in Lisbon there are many high-quality foreign colleges and schools. For the Portuguese, property investment and buying a home as the main residence are still the main reasons for the high demand.
