A 150- sq. m. villa or house in Lisboa costs around EUR 2,400 per sq. m and in the Algarve costs around EUR 2,060 per sq. m. Apartments are also more expensive in the capital region. In Lisboa, a typical 120 sq. m. apartment in an elite area changes hands at around EUR 1,800 per sq. m. while in Algarve, a 120 sq. m. apartment costs on average EUR 1,600 per sq. m.

Gross rental yields from villas in the Algarve, i.e., the gross return on investment if fully rented, are poor, at around 2.5% only. Algarve apartments return better rental yields, ranging from 3.52% to 3.79%. Rents from apartments in the Algarve range from around EUR 4 to EUR 5.5 per sq. m. per month, so you can expect monthly rental income of about EUR 560 from a 120 sq. m. apartment. Villas in the Algarve rent for around EUR 5 per sq. m. per month, so you can expect monthly rental income of about EUR 1,635 from a 350 sq. m. villa.

Lisboa apartments obtain much better yields, ranging from 4.94% to 6.41%. In Lisboa, rents from apartments range from about EUR 8 to EUR 10 per sq. m. per month, so that a 120 sq. m. apartment can be rented for about EUR 1,000 per month. Villas in Lisboa rent out for around EUR 7.50 to EUR 10 per sq. m. per month, and a 300 sq. m villa can be rented for around EUR 2,100 per month.

Smaller apartments tend to be most profitable. A 60 sq. m. apartment in Lisboa returns around 6.41% rental yields, whereas a 200 sq. m. apartment returns only 4.94% rental yields. Moderate rental yields are also observed from villas in Lisboa, and again the rule is the larger the villa, the lower the yield.
