Buy a property, acquire a residency
Portugal offers a wide range of property from traditional city apartments in Porto, to sleek modern riverfront flats in Lisbon, as well as beach villas on the Algarve & Silver Coast.
The property market in Portugal has most recently been linked to the Golden Visa programme, which essentially offers EU visas and eventual passports for all the family in return for a minimum €500,000 property investment.
As an investment destination, Portugal holds it own. The country is politically stable, and the economy is doing well, and even with great infrastructure and wide-scale development, living costs remain relatively low. Investing in Portugal offers excellent tax advantages. As well as the non-habitual tax regime, there is no inheritance and gift tax and no wealth tax in Portugal.
According to statistics, expected gross rental yields in Portugal are among the highest in Europe, achieving yields of 5% to 14% depending on the property and rental term. International investors can benefit from borrowing 65% LTV, at competitive interest rates.
