Premiere Portuguese real estate company, Ideal Homes Portugal, is set to host the Golden Visa Investment Seminar, a 2-day event being held at the Grande Centre Point Terminal 21 in Bangkok, Thailand.
The event is set to highlight why Portugal is the hottest topic for overseas property investors at the moment and a prime investment destination for those looking to gain European citizenship.
Portugal’s housing market is now strengthening, thanks to a sharp recovery in demand amidst improving economic conditions. According to available statistics, from 2020 to October 2021, the median price of dwellings in Portugal surged 10.61% (8.63% in real terms) to €1,251 (US$1,414) per square meter (sq. m) – almost twice the y-o-y growth of 5.8% recorded in October 2020, according to figures released by the Instituto Nacional de Estatistica (INE). These figures have maintained an impressive growth well into 2022.
There are no restrictions on foreign property ownership in Portugal and transaction costs are generally low. Additionally, Portugal grants the popular Golden Visa, a 5-year residency permit to non-EU citizens who buy a minimum of €500,000 worth of property, allowing holders to work or study, and travel to Schengen countries. They can apply for permanent residency after five years.
These tantalising perks and more is what Ideal Homes Portugal is able to advise on at the Golden Visa Investment Seminar. The event will provide expert advice from Chris White, owner of Ideal Homes Portugal, regarding the popular Golden Visa. Chris will teach all about the buying process and this “ticket to freedom” the Golden Visa provides as well as how to maximize one’s returns on the property through a rental process.
The living requirements for the golden visa only requires spending a very minimal amount of time living in Portugal when buying a qualifying property. However, the comfortable year-round climate, gorgeous beaches and cliffs and laid-back lifestyle has created the most popular country to move to for many Americans, British and other Europeans.
