Join our 12 Days Of Dream HomesWe’re nearly at the end of the 2018! But before preparing for the final countdown we’re tempting you with a little something to put under your tree.

Portugal’s Golden Visa updatesThe regulatory changes to the Golden Visa program, which came into force in October 2018, are designed to simplify visa applications and permanent residence permits in Portugal.

Looking at the numbers, in accumulated terms since October 2012, the foreign investment programs in Portugal have captured a total investment of 3,921,411,271.37 euros. At the time, it was an interesting strategy to circumvent the crisis in the country by encouraging the flow of foreign capital into Portugal. However, the first 7 months of this year saw a drop of 22.2% in investment raised compared to the same period in 2017.

The Residential Price Index (RPI) reached a record recovery only similar to 1992, of 16.4% in May 1. However, rising prices are not the only factor to confirm the existence of a real estate bubble. One indicator to be considered, as pointed out in the Bank of Portugal‘s Financial Stability Report, is the reopening of real estate credit by the banking institutions.
