The process of buying a Portugal property is very well outlined, but is not a simple process. For this reason we have included some tips to help prepare buyers with a plan to make sure that the process is something that is not overwhelming and stressful.
For those who may not be familiar with how the dimensions of the property are measured, many properties for sale in Portugal may include outside areas of the home like the patios. When you are comparing property, check the costto find out if the total square foot/metre of the home does or does not include outside living areas like the patio. This could give you some room for negotiations when it comes to final selling price of the home.
Other things to consider when thinking about buying real estate in Portugal would be the tax codes in the country and how much it will cost you to complete the purchase. You should consider hiring an estate agent or solicitor to make sure all the proper paperwork and tax documents are prepared correctly.
Other things to consider when looking at properties would be the location. In Portugal, there are rural and urban properties for sale. If you are buying a property in a rural location you will be required to acquire additional documentation (CadernetaRustica) which will provide complete details about the property. Paying attention to details like these could give you an advantage in finding the perfect property for your needs in Portugal.
