There are great opportunities in the Portuguese Real Estate market. Lisbon is saturated when it comes to prices and won't have a significant growth, but Porto and other medium or small sized cities are presenting amazing investment opportunities. By working with us, we will find you the best location that matches your personal investment goals, and make sure your assets grow as the markets do.

Real Estate Transactions
It's the regular transaction fee, but we only provide this service together with the package.
The reason we operate this way is because we provide a lot of support and service to our clients even before the transaction happens, and continue to do so long after it does. It's a way to make sure we defend your best interest and our work is valued regardless of purchase.
We want to avoid the tendency of pushing higher prices to get higher commission payout, so we have a fixed cost chart for real estate transactions. For reference the standard market practice is 5-6 % of the sale value. This applies to private transactions and off market deals.
In case of a property purchase from real estate agencies, we will divide commission as it is the market standard and we have a real estate licence as well.. We are always willing to sacrifice said commission if it benefits the client. However, if we do so, the client has to pay separately (these fixed amounts). If we get a partial commission from the transaction, we don't charge anything else for the property purchase, meaning the cost to our clients will be the service package only, as the partial commission is paid by the seller and included in the price (we usually get 1-3%).
