If you are looking for a good return on investment, property in Portugal is currently a booming market. Thanks in large part to the Portuguese authorities launching a Golden Visa programme - a fast track to a valid residency permit in Portugal.

Since the launch of the programme in October 2012, over 8,000 permits have been issued, with property investment the key attraction for these new citizens.

With property prices increasing 10% a year and growth projected to continue for at least five years, there is a strong opportunity to buy, refurbish and sell property to generate a healthy return on investment.

Due to the growing demand, there have been supply issues, giving way to an opportunity for construction to meet the need for new property.

If you're looking to invest or move to Portugal speak to us at Winkworth International - the Golden Visa offers a double opportunity, so now seems the right time to take the chance.
