— Portugal is fast becoming one of the most popular destinations in the world in which to invest. Besides the traditional attractiveness of the sun, sea and the country’s welcoming people, Portugal has seen its profile boosted by a series of advantageous developments in recent months.
Shortly after being listed as the world’s third safest country by the influential Global Peace Index, the Algarve was elected the world’s best place to retire for American expats by Live & Invest Overseas.
Lisbon also made the list, and was ranked seventh overall.
But this award was not a one-off, and was followed by the Annual Global Retirement Index saying Portugal was the best place in Europe to retire.
Portugal, which saw economic growth outstrip that of the Eurozone in 2017, has earmarked foreign investment in real estate, such as the non-habitual resident programme which allows for extensive or total tax exemption on pensions, as a major motor behind its extraordinary recovery from the financial crisis.
Such has been the attraction of Portugal, that latest numbers by the Portuguese Association for Real Estate Agents (APEMIP) said a quarter of all properties sold in Portugal in 2017 were to foreign buyers. Last year also saw a rise of more than 25 percent in terms of property sales on 2016.
APEMIP say current projections allow them “to forecast that the real estate market will grow once again in 2018.”
Property prices have meanwhile shown no sign of slowing down. Lisbon saw prices rise by 37 percent in the space of a year, while they were up by 18 percent in the Algarve.
If this is not enough, the World Travel Awards, known as the Oscars of Tourism, elected Portugal as the World’s Best Destination in December.
One the back of these convincing arguments, the Overseas Property Show will provide unique chance to see the luxury properties, not only from Portugal, but also other top overseas destinations gathered under one roof. Showcasing a multitude of options to help investors diversify their portfolio, this is the perfect place to help guide you through the buying process and find your ideal property abroad.
Along with the exclusive first look at these amazing luxury overseas properties, the attendees are invited to listen, for free, as industry experts give their insights on the real estate markets in Portugal, Spain, Cape Verde and Florida and tips for those keen to invest in the overseas properties. The attraction is simple and straightforward, as most overseas properties offer much greater value in terms of luxury and cost per square metre.
A spokesperson of Overseas Property Show said: “The show promises to be the signature property event of the year 2018. We’re confident that there will be something for everyone at this event.” For those seeking financial support to fulfill their overseas property goals, our team of qualified professionals will be at the event to give a presentation detailing the analysis and comparison of the best overseas property mortgage options available.”
Alongside the property agents, there’ll be the all-important professional services with expert advice on legal, financial, tax and currency. Industry experts will be on-hand to talk you through the buying process and answer any questions you have.
