Portugal tops list of best places overseas to buy real estate in 2017
   
The Portuguese Real Estate Market has been boosted mainly by the
Golden Visa and Non-Habitual Resident Programs, with great focus in
Lisbon and Algarve. Since its start in 2012, the program has been a success
in terms of the number of investors to apply for residency permits in Portugal, and the capital invested in the country as well. The most popular investors include buyers from China (80.1%), Brazil (5.3%), Russia (3.5%), South Africa (3.2%), Lebanon (1.7%), other (6.2%) from a total of 3,888  investors (Oct. 2016) buying property for the Golden Visa, mostly in the Lisbon region. For the NHR status, the primary clients are retirees from France and U.K., but also Swedish, Dutch, and Irish, mainly in the Algarve region.

This is really a unique opportunity for non-EU residents to invest and

apply for residency in a country that offers so many advantages. In the current year, the press and international experts are confirming this statement.

Portugal is one of the best countries in Europe to invest in Real Estate
as stated by  “2015 Global Residence and Citizenship Programs (GRCP)”

Of all the Citizenship by Investment (CBI) programs being offered by

EU countries in Western Europe, few can match Portugal’s “Golden Visa” when it

Portugal’s golden visa program scores a total of 54 points and ranks
the highest for

global mobility and quality of life among Europe’s residency programs, such as those
in the UK, Hungary, and Bulgaria. The main benefits of the program are a low property investment level, fast processing and a minimal requirement for residency.

with a score of 80 out of 100. It is followed by Belgium (78) and Austria (77) in 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Portugal offers a high quality of life and education, rich culture, mild climate and a high level of security. It has an excellent real estate offering, whether for lifestyle or investment, with a large geographic, environment and price-point diversity, and individuals may combine the mandatory qualifying stay with longer
visits to Portugal, as either a second or holiday home or as a permanent, safe place to reside or retire.
The tax burden on residents of Portugal is one of the lowest in the GRPI, both on corporate and personal levels. A Portuguese residence permit offers visa-free access to the Schengen area. Portugal also has extremely strict procedures and all individuals are carefully screened before their applications are approved.

Investors, primarily international, made 2015 a record year for investment in real estate in the Portuguese market.  

The properties in Portugal generated the best performance on the average return on investment registered in the country since 2000.
 
The average level recorded in 2015 aligned with the 2006 and 2007 returns and was only surpassed by the years 2001 and 2002, according to

the latest data from the Index Investment Annual IPD Property Portugal / MSCI cited by the public. 
 
The return in commercial, residential and other real estate properties was 4% - 6%. 
At the end of 2015, this index aggregated in Portugal 514 properties with a value of 6.2 billion euros. 
 
Portugal has one of the best international performances.


"The Portuguese index is clearly one of the least volatile among all world markets we analyze," says Luis Francisco, Senior Associate of M.S.C.I.E., quoted by the publication. 

Without disclosing aggregate results of the overall index, which 
compares the performance of real estate investment in various world markets, also said that "in 2015, the Portuguese index was one of those who returned better performance."
 
And again, 
2016 "will be a good year for Portugal, continuing the growth trend started in 2015," anticipates Daniel Galvez, head of RE Asset Management Iberia Deutsche Asset Management, also cited by the publication.
 
The real interest of investors is not slowing down , according to the latest data from JLL. "The residential market is currently facing one of its best performance ever recorded, leading to a complete regeneration of Lisbon and Porto city centres. Portugal is trendy and the underlying reasons for this will remain. General perspectives for 2016 point out to a continuous consolidation and increasing activity on the real estate market."
