Buy to Let

 

The rental market in Portugal at present tends to be geared up towards the short term (Air BnB type), and the domestic longer term.

 

At Silver Keys Properties, we have identified a demand that is less satisfyingly addressed by local estate agencies. There is a growing body of foreign nationals coming to live in Portugal on the back of the impressive current economic recovery of the country.

 

With an international team which has previous real-estate experience in Paris, London and New York, Silver Keys Properties is the perfect choice to target and capture this market to rent your luxury Lisbon apartment at a price that adequately reflects its location and standard.

 

Silver Keys Properties aim at carving a niche in this target market which seeks to rent at the higher end of the property spectrum.
