Due to the fabulous weather, stunning beaches, great food, laid back lifestyle, golf courses, waterparks and many more reasons, the Algarve remains high on the list for foreign investors in 2021.

2020 saw a rise in many foreigners (non-British) buying a house under the Non-Habitual Residency regime. The trend of working remotely and benefitting from the tax incentive contributed to this. This trend has continued into 2021.

Concerns around Brexit may have added to the British being more cautious, but buyers are still looking for overseas property and the Algarve is high on the list.

Ideal Homes International has seen a sharp increase in clients looking to purchase property in Portugal, especially the Algarve.

Relocating to Portugal and benefiting from rental income are two of the main reasons that 2021 has already seen many properties bought.
