Albufeira is a seaside resort in the south of Portugal

Albufeira is a city located in southern Portugal that is part of the municipality of the same name and the district of Faro. The population of the municipality of Albufeira is 41,000 people.

The closest airport to Albufeira is located in Faro, 30 km off the municipality. Albufeira has a good transportation infrastructure. Newly-built highways connect Albufeira with Lisbon, Porto and other big cities, while numerous buses and trains stop at the stations of Albufeira. The renovation of the roads was among the key factors that helped Algarve get out of the crisis in 2008. Consequently, the tourism sector evolved, and Algarve became one of the most economically developed regions of Portugal. Because of the great infrastructure, investors buy homes in the suburbs of Albufeira and closest villages without the risk of being sealed off from the rest of the world.

Albufeira is famous for its beaches and ancient architecture

Albufeira is a port city where most local citizens used to be involved in fishing. It is not known for sure when Albufeira was established, but the excavations show that it was the trade and agricultural center even in the times of the Roman Empire. Nowadays, most of the locals work in the tourism sector. Foreigners rent houses in Albufeira because they want to see the ancient architecture of the Old Town, try tasty and inexpensive local cuisine and swim in the Atlantic ocean. In Albufeira’s neighbourhoods one can find an ancient Moorish castle, a national park and plenty of beaches, including the wild ones for those who find the city beach overcrowded.

Investors can get a Golden Visa for buying a home in Albufeira

Property prices for houses in Albufeira start from €180,000, although there is the biggest range of choice for investors with more than €300,000. There are often a spacious terrace, a swimming pool and a garden that are included in the cost of houses in Albufeira. Many villas in Albufeira have panoramic ocean views. Besides, non-EU citizens can obtain a special residence permit (or a Golden Visa) for buying property for more than €500,000.

      FAQ about Albufeira
      Can foreign nationals take out mortgage loans in Albufeira?
      Yes, non-residents can be issued a mortgage loan to buy property in Albufeira. Special terms of mortgage lending for non-residents — the loan term up to 75 years of age for the eldest borrower and a down payment of 40–50%. The mortgage rate is a floating one, of 3% for residential properties and 5% for the commercial ones.
      How does the purchasing process take place when buying a house in Albufeira?
      Before the purchase, it is necessary to hire a lawyer who would help you get the paperwork done. Having chosen the property, you need to open a local bank account and receive a tax identification number.
      First, a preliminary sales agreement is signed, a deposit equalling to 10–30% of the property value is placed, and the municipal taxes are paid. The deposit is non-refundable if the buyer decides not to purchase. All agreements ought to be notarised.
      Between signing the preliminary and main sales agreements, the lawyer completes the property Due Diligence and checks the availability of all the documents for the property. When signing the main agreement, the remaining transaction amount is paid, after which the property can be registered with the land registry office and a title deed can be obtained.
      What property taxes are there in Portugal?
      Property buyers pay a stamp duty (Imposto do Selo, IS) — 0,8% and a title deed transfer tax (Imposto Municipal sobre Transmissões, IMT) — 6,0 – 6,5%. After the purchase, an annual real estate tax (Imposto Municipal sobre os Imóveis, IMI) ranging from 0.3 to 0.8% across property types and municipalities, has to be paid. These three taxes — are everything that is paid by property owners.
      When selling real estate, non-resident owners pay the capital gain tax, chargeable from the difference between the purchase price and the sales price at a rate of 28%.
      The inheritance and gift taxes are not levied from spouses, children, parents and grandchildren, the other categories pay them at a rate of 10% (which is considered low).
      How expensive are the utilities in Albufeira?
      The utility costs vary across locations. For example, an average bill for an 50–60 m² house totals about € 100-130 per month.
      Can Portuguese residency be obtained through buying a house?
      Yes, there is a residency by investment or Golden Visa programme in Portugal. Those buying newly or relatively recently built properties for at least € 500,000 and properties built over 30 years ago for at least € 350,000 become eligible for residency.
      How can a house buyer obtain Portuguese citizenship?
      It is possible to apply for permanent residency after five years of residence in the country. After six years of residence it is possible to apply for citizenship. But these procedures are not interrelated. Holding a temporary residence or permanent residence permit does not lead to obtaining citizenship. Only following the rules of stay in the country (over 183 days per year for six years) can give hope for obtaining Portuguese citizenship.
      Can foreign nationals lease houses in Portugal?
      Yes, of course. The owner's right to administer their property is not limited in any way.
      What types of Portuguese property are better to invest in for rental purposes?
      The most suitable for rental purposes are the houses located in the resort areas, such as the Algarve, Faro, Lagos, on the entire southern coast and the capital of the country, Lisbon.
      Why do I need to own a house in Portugal?
      The Portuguese property market is one of the European real estate markets that have been growing most actively over the past few years. Therefore, real estate investments are very profitable in the country.
