May 30, 2011 - PRLog -- Inside of Portugal there are many regions, but perhaps none of them as diverse as Central Portugal, the region has beaches, mountains, lakes, rivers and rolling countryside. Central Portugal has something for everyone.

Until recently the area has been held back in financial terms due to poor infrastructure, however this has changed and continues to do so. The new roads bring Portugal's cities closer and with that trade and commerce to the area. This will of course drive up property prices in central Portugal in the medium to long term.

Another factor driving growth in Central Portugal will be the influx of foreign property buyers, overseas property investors have been moving into the area for some years now and the interest from northern Europe especially is unabated.

Without a doubt the economic crisis has slowed the migration of northern Europeans, particularly the British, but as the economy chugs slowly out of recession and the fear factor associated with the break up of the Euro etc. we will see the return of larger investors from overseas and this will also drive up property prices.

The domestic property market in central Portugal is quite distinct from the market involving overseas buyers, the reason for this is that the majority of Portuguese people want to live in town in a brand new house, whereas most overseas investors are looking at stone built property in rustic settings.

This has led to a price fluctuation differential between town properties which have adjusted quite sharply downwards and rustic properties which have seen little movement.

The coastal areas of central Portugal other wise known as the Silver coast have also seen sharper price corrections and are once again generating a lot of interest. Whatever happens over the next couple of years in the wider economy I think one thing is certain central Portugal property will remain firmly on peoples minds and will continue to attract overseas investors and give excellent opportunities to investors and those of us seeking a new style of life.

The central Portugal property market is poised to take off again despite the economic woes.
