According to the latest RICS property price index report for August 2017, the Portuguese market remains in a very strong position.

The most promising news is that house prices have been predicted to increase by 5% per annum for the following five year period which is extremely encouraging for Golden visa investors.

Compared to the previous report published for June 2017, the figures for August have risen across the board for both house price increases and new sales enquiries. The sales expectations for the coming three months ahead has also risen. This sits in line with La Vida’s personal forecast as year on year the Autumn proves to be one of our busiest quarters for new investors buying in Portugal.

Due to a high demand yet a low of supply of property (particularly in Lisbon) prices continue to rise to meet this demand. The same has also effected the lettings market where rents remain on an upwards path with a steady rise of tenant enquires. It is predicted that rental growth will also continue over the coming three month period. This is great news for prospective landlords who are looking to invest for rental return.

In other areas, unemployment rates in Portugal have recently decreased to just 9.4% which is the lowest it has been since the 2008 recession. This is yet another positive reflection of how well the economy in Portugal is currently performing.

Despite the current shortage of property on the market, La Vida have an excellent choice of real estate to offer, with a vast selection of options in Lisbon, Porto, the Silver Coast and the Algarve.
