Guide to Buying a Mobile Home in Portugal

The Property Market in Portugal

In recent years, there has been a true construction and real estate boom in some parts of Portugal. Along the coastal locations of Portugal, a great deal of real estate development has taken place.

This development has included everything from luxurious housing developments to vacation communities that have attracted visitors and investors from across Europe and indeed much of the world.

Beyond the very fast paced development that has taken place along the coastal regions of Portugal, there has also been a great deal of new construction in some of the more rural areas of the country.

Rural Portugal is gaining in popularity and is proving very popular with other visiting Europeans keen on buying second homes in the area.

Couple this with a lovely and relaxing retreat tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and you've found the perfect setting for your mobile home.

Buying Mobile Homes in Portugal

Mobile homes and caravans offer an excellent and versatile method of buying property in Portugal. A cheap and easy way of climbing onto the property ladder in Portugal, mobile homes offer the buyer the freedom to move around the country and take their home with them.

There are many residential and holiday parks around Portugal offering short and long term stays. Certain mobile home parks in Portugal can offer similar facilties to other European parks typically including gas, electricity, water and even internet connectivity.

Buying a Mobile Home in Portugal

The actual process of buying a mobile home in Portugal is fairly straightforward and is not restricted as much as buying bricks and mortar.

Most mobile home parks and caravan sites will allow you to rent a pitch from them for an anual fee from the outset. There are very few if any remaining freehold plots left in Portugal that will allow you to actually own the plot of land that your mobile is sited on - you will have to buy your own land and apply for the relative planning for this.

As with all purchases make sure that you have a contract written up with the property details, what's included and what is not. Also ensure that you talk direct with the mobile home park owners - that they are happy with you buying the mobile home or caravan and remaining on the site. Are there any restriction regarding age and condition of the units - these are all questions you need to ask the park owners before agreeing to buy.
