Portuguese market beats all records to rake in billions of euros

Last year will go down for the Portuguese real estate market like the one that beat all records in living memory.

It certainly was the best year in terms of transactions since the crisis began in 2008 with sales soaring and, as a consequence, prices skyrocketing too.

In the first nine months of 2018 130,000 houses were sold … up 19% on the same period in 2017.

In the office and shopping centre market, the trend was similar, with increases of around 50%. Specialists say that 2018 was a “record year” that exceeded all expectations. For this year, while they believe the trend will continue, they warn that lack of supply as the product was outstripped by demand, will make it hard for the middle classes to find homes both in terms of physical product and affordable prices.

“This was a record year for real estate in many aspects,” says Eric Van Leuven, director of Cushman & Wakefield (C&W) who justifies his statement on numbers from the commercial sector: €3Bn in transaction turnover which includes 21 offices, 19 shopping centres and 50 new hotels in Portugal, among others.

Compared to 2007 which Van Leuven says was the previous “peak in turnover” this time the value was higher to the €2.1Bn verified then.

“This evolution has to do with the returns demanded by investors in order to invest which are ever higher, not to mention the values,” Van Leuven told the daily online economy news-site ECO.

“Last year was the year in which big-ticket deals were done such as the sale of Almada Forum to Merlin Properties and the sale of the Fidelidade portfolio,” says the CEO.

It was an opinion shared by Francisco Horta e Costa, CEO of CBRE who stated that 2018 was “an exceptional year for the real estate market, the best in memory.”

“Portugal is increasingly in the spotlight of multinational companies, developers and investors who look to our country as a market where there is still much to be done.”

Ryan é muito profissional, mas também amigável e conhecedor do mercado Golden Visa. Também se mostrou flexível, pois, com um curto aviso prévio, viajou do Algarve para me se reunir comigo em Lisboa e substituir 1 colega.

The networks to banks, accountants, lawyers was seamless. there is not enough space here to write all the positives, enough to say we are making an offer and we only arrived 4 days ago. Its impossible to improve from perfection!
