Brexit Não Afastou Britânicos De Adquirirem Propriedades No Algarve

Brexit e o Investimento no Algarve

De acordo com o estudo mais recente da Confidencial Imobiliário, os dados mais recentes do SIR – Turismo Residencial mostram que o Reino Unido continuou a apostar na compra de propriedades turísticas em Portugal.

Em 2016, esta foi aliás a nacionalidade mais representativa entre os investidores estrangeiros, com um peso de 31% no número de transações concretizadas por não residentes no país.

Sendo que quase metade das propriedades vendidas no Algarve em 2016, no chamado ‘triângulo dourado’ (Quinta do Lago, Vilamoura e Vale do Lobo), teve como compradores cidadãos do Reino Unido

De acordo com a Confidencial Imobiliário, “tal resultado confirma que o Brexit não afetou negativamente a procura de habitação turística em Portugal por parte dos investidores do Reino Unido, ao contrário do que seria inicialmente expetável como consequência económica e política decorrente do referendo que votou a favor da saída desta Estado da União Europeia”.

Propriedades no Algarve

Segundo a análise divulgada, “os britânicos não só protagonizaram quase metade das transações de origem internacional (46%), como atingiram o ticket médio de investimento mais alto, investindo cerca de 2,1 milhões de euros por operação. Este valor quase duplica os 1,1 milhões de euros investidos, em média, pelos chineses, que são o segundo país mais representativo nas aquisições internacionais neste eixo (quota de 13%)”. O SIR- Turismo Residencial é um sistema estatístico que abrange a atividade de compra e venda de propriedades de turismo residencial e que é desenvolvido pela Confidencial Imobiliário em parceria com a APR- Associação Portuguesa de Resorts, com o apoio do Turismo de Portugal.

Casa Lily – Sao Bras de Alportel villa

Property Highlight featuring the lovely Casa Lily Sao Bras de Alportel. Stunning views, tastefully finished and a great price!

Casa Lily – Sao Bras de Alportel villa

Pool area
Casa Lily Sao Bras de Alportel

This beautifully finished 3 bedroom villa in Sao Bras de Alportel is a little gem.  The highlight of the property is the stunning views across the countryside. Every room in the house looks over garden and pool area. Something of a key feature for modern day buyers are views, so you’ll understand why we’ve highlighted this property.

Although you would technically describe Sao Bras de Alportel as fairly inland, this villa is situated in Soalheira. Just a short drive to both Loule center and Sao Bras. As such you are within 20 minutes of beach side resorts and the airport. All whilst having a countryside feel.

The property is set at the end of a private entry. Although not tarmac it is well established and will not wash away with heavy rains! The drive way has ample parking and entry to the property is on the same level. Making it easy for those with less mobility.

Entering the main hall way you have a small reception area and bathroom. This opens up to an elegant open plan living area. With living and dining area in the middle and a large fully fitted kitchen, which also has direct access to the pool area. There is also a bedroom on the ground floor and a fantastic conservatory. Which, due to the Southerly orientation, is the ideal spot for the winter months.

Upstairs are two good sized bedrooms, both en suite. Separated by a large hallway. These rooms have amazing views across the entire countryside. There are no nearby houses to the front the views are uninterrupted.

There is also a annex beside the pool which is used as a utility area and the plot expands further behind the pool and garden area, so there is potential to expand on the gardens if desired.

Property of this quality and price are fairly rare across the Central Algarve so viewing is highly recommended as it will surely sell soon.

Is Algarve Property good value?

A brief post about the value of Algarve property. Looking at various factors that could determine whether this is the case or not from experienced property brokers IRG Property.

Is Algarve Property good value?

A very subjective question, with many different answers depending on whom you ask.  Generally speaking I would have to say yes Algarve Property is indeed good value for money. There are a number of reasons why we firmly believe this to be the case.

Firstly; property values have retained their value well throughout the financial crisis. A good indicator that there is demand for Algarve property.

Secondly; also somewhat tied to the first point, the strong demand for property in the Algarve makes your investment here somewhat safe. Although there’s no guarantee you’d make money here, it’s unlikely (unless circumstance’s forced you to sell at a market low) that you’d lose any.  In fact we would certainly feel a profit would be made quite easily on any long-term owned property.

There are of course areas where prices are certainly way higher than other, less popular, regions of the Algarve.  It’s here that perhaps the answer to the question “Is Algarve property good value” becomes a little more blurred.


Let’s take Vilamoura for example. A typical 4 bed detached villa with pool and garden of 1,000m2 will more than likely run you around 1,000,000 euros or more.  The trend of late, is modern contemporary design and we’ve seen a number of these coming up around the golf courses, these will come in around 1.5m euros.

Now the debate most have is that the area drives the price and this is of course true. If you want a lovely state of the art villa in one of the most sought after areas in the Algarve you are not going to find a bargain, far from it. But you will get a unique location in a fantastic state of the art home, even if you could buy a similar home a few minutes way for half the price.  Therein lies the answer to the question and in the end it will come down to the individual.  I suppose more conclusively, presently there’s a shortage of properties in Vilamoura (and other high demand locations) so the value is clearly there for most otherwise wed be like Spain and have properties sitting dormant and unfinished for years!
