T3 The Hills - Case Study


An investor approached Host Wise with a limited budget of 300,000€ to invest in real estate, seeking a property with an estimated return on investment (ROI) above 10%. The investor showed preference for downtown Porto, although some flexibility in location was allowed.


  • At least T3 (3-bedroom) property
  • High-end assets allowing higher prices
  • Swimming pool as a rare amenity


  • Limited new construction in downtown Porto
  • Inflated asking prices in areas near downtown Porto
  • Lack of high-end, differentiated offerings

    Location Selection

    Oliveira do Douro was identified as a location with high ROI potential due to:

    • Proximity to the historic center of Gaia (10 minutes) with high tourist demand
    • Lower asking prices and many new constructions due to low demand for residential purposes
    • New constructions focused on high-end assets with differentiating amenities such as pools, gardens, and garages
