Buying property in Portugal can be an overwhelming process, no matter how long you have dreamed about your own corner of paradise in the Algarve, or that city apartment in Lisbon. To ensure you achieve success, researching everything you need to know before you begin is of paramount importance – especially when you also need to consider the different languages spoken in Portugal and the cost of living in Portugal (sometimes on things that may not have even crossed your mind when you began this journey!) Without considering as much as you can in advance, you could end up falling into one of the many pitfalls of buying property in Portugal, so it is important to gain as much knowledge as possible early on in the process.

The Portugal Property Guide is a free of charge on and offline resource to help you through every step of buying property in or moving to Portugal safely and securely. It covers every part of the journey, from your property search and buying process, Portuguese law, currency, financial matters, learning the language and the actualities of life in Portugal! We are here to help on every step you take, helping you to secure your own slice of life in Portugal.
