Known as the Algarve of the north, the Silver Coast is an alternative to those who still look for sun and sea.

Being a spectacular stretch of coastal ancient towns, what makes the Silver Coast so special are its cultural events, its unique picturesque scenery, and also the excellent healthcare and educational facilities; it also boasts a number of excellent courses and is becoming a major destination for thousands of tourists who come to enjoy the golfing.

So why are expats choosing to live in the Silver Coast?

Affordable Investments

Portugal’s living cost and the exceptional value of property prices are the main motivations why the expat community keeps growing here. 

The Coast became popular amongst foreign buyers in the late ‘90s, when the A8 roadway was built between Lisbon and Óbidos, which enabled easy access to the region.

It's fantastic how Ryan had complete knowledge regarding Lisbon and dealt with us in a great manner.

Akbar Ali - Investor from Pakistan

Ryan is very professional, but also friendly and knowledgeable about the Golden Visa market. He was also flexible as travelled from the Algarve to meet me in Lisbon to stand in for 1 colleague at short notice.

Investor from UK

Portugal Homes did a great job keeping me up to date with progress on my new home construction purchase by providing regular and comprehensive reports. This helped to ease anxieties about doing a home purchase in the midst of a global pandemic.

Investor from the USA

Although through Zoom, we established great confidence in George's integrity. [It was] important for us to have confidence in the staff's ability to feel aligned in views.

Donald Collie from Australia

The process was very quick and clear. I got all the information I needed in the first hour. The experience was perfect.

Tomoko Inoue from Japan

Overwhelming. Luisa has exceeded our expectations on all levels. Trust was established immediately. Enhanced by super friendly professionalism. The networks to banks, accountants, lawyers was seamless. there is not enough space here to write all the positives, enough to say we are making an offer and we only arrived 4 days ago. Its impossible to improve from perfection!
