    Since last year (when we visited Portugal - Castelo Branco region) we are really interested in buying a property in that region...reason: simple -> it's still affordable...

    I've now stumbled on the sale of a "small town"...for less then 50k€...and am wondering what the catch is here...

    For the advertisement companies here: I'm really not interested in plots/houses...etc of 500.000€...if I have that money, then I put it on a bankaccount in an offshore bank and "retire"...

    Me too Koen:)

    the reason the village could be so cheap is that a lot of the property over that way is a bit remote and there is sometimes a lack of infrastructure and amenities. we have friends that live around the castelo branco area, and although the city itself has all you would want, once you move out into the mountains there is not so much to keep you entertained.
    property prices in that area are allways a lot cheaper than the more populated, developed areas.
    if this area is what you are looking for then some good property bargains to be had. weve seen some nice little farms for very little money.
