Many people are hesitant of buying property in a foreign country and especially in a country that they do not know well. Some see Portugal as a bureaucratic country and if you do not know it, you might also think that you could get cheated. Others have questions about the favourable tax rules in Portugal for foreigners moving there.
Many real estate agents/consultants and advisors argue that Portugal is a rather tricky market with many pitfalls to fall into and that you will need extensive advice from both lawyers and tax experts in order to buy a property in Portugal. We say the opposite: the buying process is actually quite easy, from the first property visit, through to payment and moving into the new home. The only thing you really need is a skilled, local real estate agent whom you can really trust – a person who can also guide you to other skilled people, if needed.
From our own experience, we can reassure you; buying property in Portugal is easy and fairly non-bureaucratic!
You need a local real estate agent whom you can trust to help you to find what you are looking for and help to negotiate a price.
