New Foreign Investment Trend in National Real Estate

They arrive from the other side of the Atlantic allured by the quality of life, gastronomy, hospitality and notoriety that Portugal has achieved recently. The flow of Americans has been growing, and many are looking for a safer alternative to live and invest, following Trump's government policies. The residence permit through the Golden Visa program continues to create investment opportunities, however, there are some who also buy property to lease.


From closer by, pensioners and retired Swedes, who have come here for the mildest winters, have begun to be interested in the Portuguese real estate. In this case, having a better destination knowledge, they seek Portugal through the attractive Fiscal Regime of Non-Habitual Residents. This program, among other benefits, exempts the investor from any taxation of pension or income obtained abroad (no double tax).


Casas do Barlavento believes that these programs, launched by the government to leverage foreign investment, are fostering the economy and opening doors to informed and wealthy clients who know what they want.
