Since 2012, Lisbon has continued to redefine itself as a European heavyweight through billions of euros of public and private investment and regeneration.
Once forgotten neighbourhoods like Santos have turned into cultural design beacons, empty warehouse districts like Marvila into effervescent start-up and business hubs, and others attracting blue-chip companies to set up new offices, global events and all walks of international property investors.
Prices have grown in the central districts over the last few years, so international buyers need to carefully consider their objectives before investing in Lisbon. Today, the property market in Lisbon is much more like a modern European city, akin to that of Paris or Barcelona. The big differences though are the ease of investing, the incentives like the Golden Visa and NHR programme and the competitive property prices.
Whilst prices in the prime centre in districts like Chiado, Baixa and Liberdade have matured, they are still not on par with their Parisian or London counterparts. Then outside the prime centre, there is incredible value, especially within certain districts like Graca and Avenidas Novas, which due to Lisbon’s relatively small size as a European capital, are still walking distance from the main centres.
Over the past few years both Amazon and Google have opened up offices in Lisbon, creating hundreds of jobs and further increasing the city’s profile as a destination for new businesses, in addition to its low costs and tax-friendliness.
Web Summit, the world’s largest technology conference, is now in its fifth year and each year brings hundreds of millions of euros to Lisbon’s economy. Then in Marvila, Hub Criativo do Beato is to become the world’s largest startup hub, dwarfing the previous largest, Station F in Paris, and forms part of the €3.6 billion in public and private investment which is changing this increasingly popular area for international property investors.
One of the biggest advantages for international investors buying property in Lisbon over the last 10 years has been the incentives. The two most popular types are Portugal’s Golden Visa and NHR programmes, which together have attracted billions of euros of property investment in Lisbon.
Through the Golden Visa programme, with a minimum investment of either €350,000 or €500,000 in Lisbon property, an investor is able to obtain a temporary permit that enables free travel across the Schengen zones and puts them on the path to a Portuguese passport and with it, EU residency within five years. The investor is also able to add their close family onto the investment. The NHR programme is a tax-efficient programme that lasts for 10 years and vastly reduces income tax and taxes on things like dividends.
