The Property Perspective report comprises the analysis of the investment and occupier market in 2017 in the office, retail, warehouse and logistics, residential and hotel sectors; and highlights the major trends for 2018. The 2017 analysis shows that this was an excellent year for the real estate sector in Portugal.

  • Commercial real estate investment volume recorded new heights ascending to 2.2 billion euros.

  • Occupational markets, both offices and logistics, observed a significant year on year increase, despite the fact that real estate development projects were almost exclusively built-to-suit construction.

  • Significant increases were registered in the values of commercial property as well as residential, and rental rises in several sectors.

  • The investment market remains very dynamic and a new record-high is expected in 2018. However, take-up is expected to slow down due to limited availability of spaces. Consequently, prime rents are likely to increase, namely in the office and high street retail sectors.
