Property Investment in Portugal

Hi,

The purpose of this post is to connect with anyone interested/actively investing in the Portuguese Real Estate market. 

I am moving to Portugal in March 2019 and wanted to connect with fellow Property investors. There seems to be an interesting investment case for Portugal currently and by building a supportive network of investors we will be able to discuss opportunities and build our experience faster than if we go it alone

When I arrive in March I will be focusing on learning the market and seeing which strategies will work for me. 

Thanks

Thomas

Hi Joshua, I replied your DM.

Btw, I checked out the recent 2021 census data in Portugal and here are the Top-20 Municipios by resident (relative) population growth.

Interesting to see the dynamism led by Municipios around Lisbon e.g. Alcochete, Arruda dos Vinhos, Cascais, Mafra, Montijo, Palmela, Seixal, Sesimbra, Sobral de Monte Agraço, Torres Vedras. Maybe some hidden gems there? ;-)
But also quite interesting/surprising (for me) the Algarve. Because mind you, this numbers is resident population and not tourists.



Municipio Growth Resident population (No.)
Albufeira 8,2% 44.168
Alcochete 9,0% 19.145
Arruda dos Vinhos 4,5% 13.992
Braga 6,5% 193.349
Cascais 3,7% 214.158
Faro 4,0% 67.650
Lagoa 3,3% 23.734
Lagos 7,9% 33.500
Mafra 12,8% 86.521
Montijo 8,7% 55.689
Odemira 13,5% 29.576
Palmela 9,6% 68.856
Portimão 7,6% 59.867
São Brás de Alportel 5,5% 11.248
Seixal 5,2% 166.525
Sesimbra 5,8% 52.394
Sobral de Monte Agraço 3,8% 10.541
Tavira 5,2% 27.530
Torres Vedras 4,5% 83.075
Vila do Bispo 8,7% 5.717

 This is fascinating - I live in one of the cities mentioned here and invest in the other 🙂. Out of interest, @Benjamin Werner can you share the source of that data? Would love to have an easy-to-reference link in future.

Hi everyone,

I'm Alistair from Milan, Italy. Big fan of Portugal, and interested in investing there. 

Anyone with experience in the real estate market in Lagos? In particular, I'd love to invest in a property and making it a vacation rental.

Also, I work in the STR industry so happy to connect and exchange ideas on the topic!

Cheers

 Hey @Alistair Toffoli - I live in Lagos and while I don't have any investment properties here, I've got a few friends that do. Happy to answer any questions you might have 🙂
