Portuguese Property Market, still going strong

Despite the recent market conditions, property sales in Portugal seem to be bucking the trend. There are many reasons why people continue to buy property in Portugal.
Investors, mainly from Northern Europe, are still looking for a safe place to invest their money, away from the banks and into the traditional commodity, property. Portugal still offers great value, especially in the West coast areas and the central regions including the Alentejo. Prices are still relatively low and there still seems to be enough tenants for the properties.
Other investors are using the “credit crunch” to take advantage of the bargain properties in the Algarve. Developers haven´t over-developed in the same way that the Spanish and Turkish developers have, so the market is still strong enough to give an investor confidence, but the developers do seem to be offering great deals just to shift properties and to reduce their gearing with the banks.
Lifestyle buyers are able to pick up some great deals, especially in the Algarve, as owners in other countries have been forced to sell. The property market in Portugal offers sufficient variation in style, location and price to suit all tastes. The airports are well served from all over the world and flights from Northern Europe are frequent and cheap. The perfect recipe for lifestyle buyers.
