Having invested heavily into Real Estate in the past 2 years, I have learned a few lessons which I would like to share with you. Of course that in this article, I will be talking primarily about real estate in Portugal. Note that the lessons I will be sharing apply to the the Portuguese market only. You may think “Algarve Portugal real estate”, because that is very sexy and trendy, but I will actually be talking about real estate in Portugal as a whole. Note that the markets in Algarve and Lisbon are especially regulated, given that the majority of the leases are short-term leases.
