We at Realigro have created a mini guide made to measure for you, to understand what are the advantages but also the disadvantages arising from this choice. You will discover the steps to follow to be able to find a property in Portugal without problems and in complete tranquility! So, be ready, because you are about to do a full immersion called ''Portugal''.

              
Let's start by saying that, this land has a particular history, consisting of exploratory expeditions. The Portuguese territory is varied, with wonderful cities and unique beaches! It is no coincidence that Portugal is one of the most characteristic countries of the European continent. Lately, despite the European monetary crisis, has also hit this land, the flow of tourists has never totally stopped. On the contrary. For about ten years, the country has become the hub for many tourists, eager to move to this paradise, with a very low cost of living and thriving and diverse industries. Young people and pensioners are the first to google this destination. The first to live an unforgettable foreign experience, the second to enjoy the years of retirement with a taxation almost nothing. 
The advantages of living in this land are many. The climate, the richness of the land, the variety of places that dot the nation from north to south with a wealth of history unobtainable in all other nations, food and wine and in general an inimitable folk culture.
Among the disadvantages there is the still high unemployment rate and the bureaucratic process that is still cumbersome and slow. 
But what do you have to do to be able to move to this land? 
The difficulty in taking this step is zero, if you consider that European citizens only need an identity card, which will allow you to stay in this land for up to 3 months.  After 90 days, however, you will have to register with the SEF and AIRE, communicating your presence within the country and a proof of residence. 
But how much does it cost to live in Portugal?
With 1000 euros per month you can live without problems, being able to take some whims. The rentals of a simple studio apartment are around 300 euros per month, including bills. Obviously everything varies from area to area.  While to buy a property prices start from 90,000 euros. The center of Lisbon has high prices but also the suburbs is not a bad choice. The transport network is really efficient so you can take advantage of this advantage, saving on the cost of a property in the center of Lisbon. 
 But what attracts a great many young people, especially to this land, is the very low price of the premises. You can have lunch for less than 10 euros, have a coffee for 70 cents and a play with dinner included with a maximum of 25 euros.  The official language is Portuguese, very similar in sound level to Spanish and Italian but do not despair! English can save you in all circumstances and remember that, the Portuguese, are very welcoming.
