The one thing you will find is that most real estate agencies will not focus on rentals and vice versa. Specialist rental sites are starting to appear, not sure if I can publish names here but I am sure Admin will say if they wish us to put it out there. This is important as many people are moving to Portugal without having detailed knowledge and so need time to see what area is best for them.

There are also businesses now starting to offer buyer services (a little like the MLS system in the US where you have a buy-side and sell-side representative)

Almost of these real estate agencies offer rentals services for portuguese and expats.

The problem with rentals for expats is that due to the difficulty with the language, they require services that help them in this work. But that obviously is charged....

Anyone who is interested in buying or renting a property in Portugal should ideally look for the property by yourself in some of the websites available. In Portugal, there is a huge offer of properties, at various prices and for different market targets.

You should not be limited only by a real estate agency/consultant or a house suggestion from any of the members of this forum.

Most real estate consultants in Portugal speak a good English. Ideally these links suggested here (or others you will find out), allow you to start your search, get an idea of what you want in terms of prices and locations, and only after that, you should contact one or more real estate agencies.

Virtual Tours:
By using technology, you can see if a property fits your needs without leaving your home.

Who uses virtual property tour services in Portugal?
1) Customers who wish to buy remotely
2) Clients who wish to validate a property before a physical visit on-site

Also some real estate agencies can make guided tours by videoconference.

https://www.idealista.pt/en/news/proper … rove-house

Eg.
At Idealista portal, you can select: Menu / 'Listing Type' option / 'With a virtual tour' option

From the resulting search list you can select the house you want to see; and below the property descrition, you can make the 360-virtual tour.

_____

In most real estate agencies websites, you can select option boxes "virtual tour/visita virtual" and/or "video" in your research, to filter properties:

Eg.
https://www.imovirtual.com/comprar/?sea … dview%5D=1https://m.era.pt/imoveis/default.aspx?o … p;ct=00001https://www.tagusproperty.com/buy-house … tual-tour/https://www.engelvoelkers.com/pt-pt/por … tual-tour/http://www.remaxvtp.com/

Who can buy a house in Portugal ?


Anyone can buy a house in Portugal, regardless of their nationality.

The only requirement is to have a valid portuguese fiscal number (NIF). The process is slightly easier for citizens of the European Union, because of the free movement of people and capital.

Applying for the NIF is free of charge in Portugal and can be done by residents and non-residents. To do so, foreign citizens must present a valid passport. In case they are EU citizens, they may also present a civil identification document from the respective EU country.

If you are a non-EU citizen and not resident in Portugal, you may appoint a local tax representative to represent you before the Portuguese tax authorities. The process is similar to that available to foreign citizens who wish to open a company in Portugal.


______

Who can be your tax representative in Portugal?


Any person who has legal and fiscal residence in the country can be a tax representative in Portugal. It could be a relative or friend of yours who is resident in Portugal, it could be a solicitor, a lawyer, or any other person (portuguese or non portuguese) who is resident in Portugal.

I'd take any real estate data from Idealista with a grain of salt - their data is limited to properties that list on their site.
Yes, it is as you say, but the values indicated are very close to reality...
