PORTUGAL: THE SAFE HARBOUR FOR INVESTMENTS

The Phoenicians found in the magnificent natural harbour, provided by the estuary of the Tagus river, an ideal spot for a settlement. What is today Lisbon was named Alis Ubbo, or “safe harbour” by the Phoenicians. Now, almost 29 centuries later, Portugal is seen as a “safe harbour” for investors, especially for Real Estate developers.

REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT
Three factors have been driving the demand for real estate in Portugal:
1
Golden Visa Program
Portuguese Golden Visa Programme which attracted many foreigners to buy houses over € 500K to get access to the UE.
2
Non-Habitual Resident Regime (NHR)
Portuguese Non-Habitual Resident Tax Regime which attracted European citizens from countries with high taxes (namely Sweden and France, among others).
3
Holiday Homes
Holiday Homes, long tradition of Portugal as a holiday destination which drives the sales of second homes (with UK citizens at the top of the list).

On the other hand, with the economic reforms, a result of the Economic Adjustment Programme (PAEF) initiated in Portugal in 2011 and the additional European Funds from the 2020 Horizon, many entrepreneurs and established companies find in Portugal the right context to develop their business. Portugal is a ‘hot’ country in respect to the development of start-ups and the traditional companies such as big European banks also chose this country to set up a big part of the back-office services.

In short, we believe that in Portugal you’ll find everything you need.

We all know that 3 things matter in real estate: location, location, location.
