According to a study from Cushman & Wakefield, foreign investment continues to lead the way in the Portuguese market (78%) but Portuguese capital grew 135% – almost double from 2018. However, the consultant continues to point out a lack of quality offered in the market, particularly in the Office segment. Eric Van Leuven, Managing Director of C&W Portugal says that despite demand being limited due to a lack of quality offer, 2019 was an excellent year for Portuguese real estate.
International investors were the ones who most contributed to this investment (78%), in a total of €1.4Bn, with the majority from Germany (32%), the United States (14%) and Spain (14%). Nevertheless, national investment skyrocketed by 135% to a total of €602 million, according to data from the consultants presented on Thursday.
Large-scale portfolios (bundles of two or more assets) form a total of 17 transactions, mainly in the office market which attracted €990 million. The FPM41 Tower bought by the German fund Deka and the Arts Business Centre and Torre Fernão Magalhães purchased by Merlin Properties stand out from among the largest deals.
The shopping centre segment too was more buoyant, with key deals including AlgarveShopping and Albufeira Retail Park by Frey for €178 million as well as the sale of RioSul Shopping, 8th Avenida and LoureShopping to Harbert for €170 million.
But the hotel sector netted 19% of the amount invested in commercial real estate with a total of €520 million. The greatest transaction of the year was the sale of the Tivoli portfolio by Minor to Invesco for €313 million. Investment in student halls of residence has also attracted overseas investors as in the case of Xior which purchased eight residences for €160 million.

Ryan was an excellent real estate agent, he really steered me in the right direction based on what I said was important to me. Living in another country, I wasn't as familiar with the city as he is. Where I thought I wanted to live and what I truly wanted were not the same. He took the time to listen and figure out the best spot for me, and we are very happy with it - far more than we would have been elsewhere.Investidor dos EUA
