FANTASTIC PROPERTY OPPORTUNITIES FOR EXPATS – LISBON & FRENCH ALPS

 

PORTUGAL – LISBON

 
Lisbon is a city that has it all. A great climate with warm sunny dry summers with an average summer temperature of 27 degrees and over 320 days of sunshine a year; fabulous culture, great cuisine, a vibrant atmosphere with great shopping, restaurants and entertainment; and beaches on your doorstep if you fancy a day in the sun. Lisbon provides the ideal environment for people wanting to enjoy the sun and the sea alongside a city life. The summer brings more sunshine than Madrid, Rome or Athens.

Because of all that, and a strong property market which has seen property prices grow by 4% year on year recently – plus the governments residency and Golden Visa program which offers residency and citizenship (and therefore also citizenship of the EU and the benefits that come with that) for anyone who invests more than €500,000 in a property – Lisbon has seen an influx of business, entrepreneurs and overseas property buyers wanting to take advantage of the fabulous benefits that the city offers, and is now becoming one of the most popular cities in Europe for relocation, second home & investor/rental buyers.

Portugal and Lisbon alike have excellent housing markets, which generally tend to be good value for money. Because of that, Portugal has the highest owner-occupation rate, with nearly 70% of the population owning their homes. Unlike many European capitals that have become nearly unaffordable, Lisbon allows individuals to buy a house in central and prime locations. Most homes available for sale in the city make an ideal Lisbon property investment. Overseas buyers who purchase property in Lisbon, also benefit from low taxes and tax exemptions and the low cost of living in the city.

The buildings are bright and colourful and speak to the heritage of the culture. The café culture is very much thriving with young entrepreneurs opening new restaurants and cafés, adding great culinary value and energy to the city. It is uncomplicated and certainly the most interesting European capital to watch out for.

We work closely with property developers who are specialists in renovating existing buildings to a very high standard in the best Lisbon locations. Already 6 such projects have been completed and there are a further 12 in the course of construction. The apartments are all New Build and for the most part the ancient facades are kept intact whilst the core of the building is completely demolished to create brand new apartments, with in some cases high end amenities such as gyms, rooftop pools and Concierge services.

All these residences have management companies that can take care of all the management and rental for you if you wish, and provide hassle free options specially developed for clients living abroad including a full management service. Lisbon is becoming an increasingly popular place to reside (Long Term lets) for both corporate professionals and a younger more affluent population having recently been named the start-up capital of Europe. Short term lets are also highly in demand given the increasing number of tourists and the lack of quality hotels in the Historical centre.

Average summer temperature of 27 degrees and 320 days of sunshine a year

City and beach lifestyle
Rapidly growing property market with prices increasing by 4% annually
