Dear investors,

It is in a totally new and disruptive context caused by the Covid-19 pandemic that we present the 5th edition of “The Property Handbook - the Real Estate Investment Guide”. As was the case in 2013, when we first launched this guide, markets are undergoing challenging times, although with a very different genesis from the global financial crisis. More than ever, we are interested in continuing to ensure that investors are well informed regarding the status of the real estate market in Portugal.

The evolution of this publication, from a physical document to an online format, allows us, with greater speed and easier access, to keep investors up-to-date with the market context, as well as with the legislative and tax changes that impact real estate.

Over the last years, Portugal has registered a high volume of investment from international investors. We believe that the fundamentals of the market remain very interesting and robust, both in terms of occupation and investment, and that, at the same time, Portugal presents very attractive conditions for the development of a more diversified range of real estate asset classes, such as student residences, senior living, or rental housing.

At this moment, it is already evident that the real estate market remains very active and confident, despite the turbulent context in which we are living. We are therefore optimistic that, with the support of CBRE and VdA, Portugal will remain on the investor radar.

We look forward to working together!
