Buy a House or Sell Your Home In Portugal

While searching for a property for sale or rent in Portugal can be an incredibly exciting experience, there's still plenty of legal considerations to bear in mind. Unlike other countries, Portugal has relatively straightforward fiscal rules and regulations in place that benefit foreign investors in real estate property. If you're looking to move in Portugal, it's relatively easy to obtain full-time residence permits so you can enjoy your new property year-round, while special arrangements for occasional residents looking for second homes offer extremely favourable tax rates and incentives.

Likewise, if you're looking to sell or rent out Portuguese real estate, there's plenty of real estate agencies on hand to help make things run smoothly. You'll find many agencies dedicated to helping domestic and foreign buyers, helping you offload property with ease, with clear guidance and advice on how to achieve the best price of your property, every time.

Living and Working in Portugal

First and foremost, Portugal is an incredibly beautiful country in which to live. Offering some of the most breath-taking and diverse landscapes in Europe, the country is one of the most popular destinations on the continent for tourists and expatriates alike. Visitors will find a culturally rich country, with a high quality of life and a democratic society that invites and celebrates multiculturalism. Portugal is also a proud member of the European Union and active member country of the Euro Zone at large - ideal for citizens of existing EU countries looking to emigrate to pastures new, with relatively little fuss and red tape. 



In Portugal, you'll find stunning natural beauty at every turn. Taking up much of the western-side of the Iberian Peninsula, Portugal boasts almost 1,800 kilometres of coastline, with some of the most beautiful white sand beaches anywhere in Europe. Work your way further inland, and you'll discover rolling plains and green and pleasant valleys, along with enchanting mountainsides and endless hills. Portugal isn't without its heritage either, with ancient towns and settlements scattered across the country, alongside important cosmopolitan hotspots and distinctly modern cities. 



Portugal's celebrated natural landscapes make it the perfect venue for a whole host of sports. The locals make good use of their impressive stretch of coastline, with surfing, sailing and bodyboarding all popular. The Serra da Estrela (Star Mountain Range) offers the highest peaks and trails in the country, making it a favourite destination for orienteering, mountain climbing and high-octane outdoor pursuits. 



Portugal also enjoys convenient transport connections to the continent at large, with three international airports located in Lisbon, Faro and Oporto respectively. You're only ever a few hours away from many of Europe's biggest and most important cities by air, with excellent road and rail links connecting the country to the rest of the continent.



No matter how stunning the scenery, it's the local people and Portuguese way of life that'll convince you to stay. Renowned for their welcoming spirit and hospitality, Portugal is an increasingly international country, with many locals speaking both Portuguese and English. In the larger towns and cities, international visitors from further afield will also be welcome, with a distinctly cosmopolitan vibe and sense of integration to newcomers from all over. 



The level of diversity on show in Portugal carries over into the labour market. Today, the country enjoys a healthy economy, with many thriving industries offering integration for foreign professionals looking to lay down roots and excel in their chosen career. In fact, national law encourages and facilitates the integration of professionals, making the country an even more desirable destination for those looking to relocate.



Portugal truly is a dream destination. A place to live, a place to learn, and a place you'll love.
