Immo Portugal is physically established in Belgium (Antwerp) and Portugal (São Martinho do Porto ).

We guide you in all phases of your purchase and construction with our own team (first meeting, guided tour on site, choice of materials via the after-sales service, …).
Immo Portugal does not stop after the purchase. For example, we help our customers further with furniture packages to arrange their homes as they wish, renting their second home, choosing the right partner for property management and many other practical aspects.
With Immo Portugal, you have the insurance to rely on a partner who fulfils all the legal obligations. Immo Portugal has both BIV (Belgium) and AMI (Portugal) recognition. This gives you the guarantee that everything is fine, legally and ethically.

A purchase of a villa through Immo Portugal stands for transparency: from the start there are clear contracts: a contract for the purchase of the land and a contract for the construction, clearly linked to each other. You first become the full owner of the land and then the construction starts. It is very important to have both contracts at the moment that you put the first signature, so you will not be faced with any surprises regarding terms and budgets. We strongly advise against buying a land ‘and then seeing how you build’, this opens the door for unpleasant legal and technical building experiences.
Immo Portugal employs employees who are born and raised locally in Portugal, which also allows us to really understand the local culture and so we can look for investment opportunities for our customers through our integration and our extensive network on site. A real win-win situation for both our customers, ourselves and the local population.
Immo Portugal only chooses projects at AAA locations. We do not offer B locations. This means that you can enjoy a holiday in a prime location no further than 15 minutes from the coast or a major city, or that you make an investment that generates a good return, given the easy lettability. We consider this to be extremely important, also in order to be able to acquire good added value in the event of a later resale.
Via the Immo Portugal membership card, the customer also benefits from local partners, such as a free appetizer in certain restaurants and discounts at selected partners. This way our customers are integrated into the local atmosphere and experience and this is greatly appreciated by the “locals”. Customers who, on top of that, make extra publicity and introduce a customer, are rewarded even more via the golden membership card.
