It’s been recently reported that roughly 90% of property buyers who choose to invest in the
Algarve buy second homes, discovered by The Portugal News. Furthermore, according to Engel & Völkers, less than 20% of home investors in the Algarve region are Portuguese. The remaining 80% of buyers are foreign citizens, namely British nationals.
It’s no secret that investing in real estate property in the Algarve, Portugal especially within the realms of Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura, can be a lucrative and appealing opportunity. But it goes to show just how much of a worthwhile investment it had been for many when they have considered buying further property in the region.
So, what are some of the key factors that make Algarve a popular destination for British and other European countries who are considering property investment:
Growth Markets & Low Property Taxes
The Algarve property trend has often seen steady growth prices and is largely positive, hence making it a fairly secure option for British people to reap the rewards of their real estate investment. In addition to this Portugal boasts low property taxes, which makes a potential property investment in Algarve all the more accessible for owners and investors alike.
Rental Opportunities & Better Quality of Life
British and European tourists set sail for the golden triangle in search of the sunshine and warm temperatures, coupled with the allure of renowned beaches, golf courses and plenty to do. These factors pose a good property investment opportunity which generates a
year-round rental income for tourists who look to embark on luxury living for a week or two in Algarve territories. Better still, it’s your very own holiday home in paradise to enjoy at certain points in the year when maybe the weather is slightly depressing back home.
Portugal presents attractive residency and citizenship programs for foreign investors through the country’s Golden Visa program. However, it’s worth knowing the recent July update indicated the country’s Golden Visa Program is on the verge of serious changes. Recent clarifications imply no retroactive effect on the new law. However, the program will soon cease to accept real estate purchases and real estate related funds as qualifying investment options. Certain Portuguese funds will continue to be an eligible investment. Legal experts recommend acting promptly to secure your spot in the program. You can read what we know so far here.
