With 10% growth, Portugal ranks fourth in the ranking of countries with the largest increases in house prices in the European Union. Data referring to the 2nd quarter of 2019 was recently released by Eurostat (Official Institute of Statistics of the European Union / EU).
Even with frequent price of property in Portugal increases, it is already possible to see the first signs of decreasing compared to the previous year’s numbers, which has been welcomed by the market, as it shows a greater balance and maturity of the sector.
If we analyze the evolution of the house prices, it is necessary to take into account the purchasing capacity of potential Portuguese and foreign buyers. Having said that, only in 2018, the average number of buildings sold to foreigners rounds 171 thousand euros, 58% higher than the average of global transactions.
Know who the Foreign investors in Portugal are here.
Portugal is facing a cyclical period, and rising house prices tend to attract investors, leading to the promotion of this sector, where the trend is that new products start to appear more intensely, contributing to pricing relief.
The portuguese real estate market continues to live the best years of the last decade, because even with the continuous rise in property prices, the sector is still fueled by national, but especially foreign investment, since real estate in Portugal still has the lowest prices, compared to the prices practiced in cities such as London and Paris.
The great search for property in Portugal by foreign investors is due to tax incentives and the Golden Visa programme, which acts as a residence permit, intended for citizens from countries outside the European Union or from the Schengen area, aimed for investment, job creation and/ or real estate acquisition worth 500.000 € or higher.

Thanks to Andrea Leite for the comprehensive and timely updates on the construction progress of the new development we purchased!Investor from the USA
Ryan was an excellent real estate agent, he really steered me in the right direction based on what I said was important to me. Living in another country, I wasn't as familiar with the city as he is. Where I thought I wanted to live and what I truly wanted were not the same. He took the time to listen and figure out the best spot for me, and we are very happy with it - far more than we would have been elsewhere.Investor from the USA

My property advisor, Mathew McGurn, was truly excellent! His knowledge, professionalism and attention to details was much appreciated. He worked hard to not only find a property that fit all my requirements, he negotiated successfully with agents making sure my offer won over other buyers bidding for the same property. In addition, his communication skills, prompt response time and general help with my getting settled in Portugal went above and beyond the normal.Investor from the USA
