The advantages of a “lock-up and go” property

The advantages of a “lock-up and go” property

 Buying Property in Portugal 

If you’re looking for a second home for the holidays or an attractive investment opportunity, a “lock-up and go” property might be the perfect option for your home in Portugal... 

It's no secret that more and more foreigners have made the choice to live in Portugal full-time. Many choose to make their Portuguese property their main residence, investing in a modern villa with spacious bedrooms, outdoor swimming pools and gardens, and in some cases set on a large plot of land.

However, this dream solution may not be ideal for all types of families and lifestyles. Professional obligations back home or having school-age children are amongst the reasons some expats choose to delay living full-time in Portugal. Others just prefer the convenience offered by a smaller property. In these cases, a lock-up and go solution is the best option for a second home in sunny Portugal. 

The advantages of lock-up and go properties include:

  • Lower costs: The smaller the property, the less money you’ll have to invest in furnishings, as well as regular costs such as maintenance, cleaning, and utility bills; 
  • Simplicity: A townhouse in a private condominium or an apartment will also allow you to enjoy amenities that you might not be able to (or want to) afford on your own, such as an outdoor pool, gardens, common gym or tennis courts;
  • Location: Lock-up and go properties also tend to be located in prime areas, with sea views, close to beaches, golf courses, restaurants, and shops or other touristic attractions which increase the security of the properties in terms of investment.

If you’d like to know more about our large selection of lock-up and go properties in the Silver Coast or in the Algarve of Portugal, contact us.
