The key driver for growth in the Cape Verde real estate market is inward investment in the infrastructure. Real estate prices are still very low with double-digit growth in recent years. Moreover, good rental returns are possible as the tourism market has grown to 500,000. Tourism has been stimulated by Santiago’s new international airport and further expansions underway in Boavista and St.Vincente. In addition, the national Cape Verde airline (TACV) provides direct flights from the UK.
