There are fewer and fewer houses for sale in Portugal. Spot Price Increase – Real Estate



There are fewer and fewer houses for sale in Portugal.  Spot Price Increase - Real Estate

In Portugal, there is a clear slowdown in the supply of real estate. At the end of April, there were 135,000 objects on sale against 150,000 at the end of last year, which means a drop of 6%.

A drop in real estate supply that “could cause short-term price increases, especially in major cities,” real estate consultant Imovendo warns.

The biggest drop in inventory occurred in apartments, with housing supply remaining relatively stable during the first four months of the year.

“We’re talking about 15,000 new properties put on the market in the first four months in the Lisbon metropolitan area and 44,000 new properties in the Porto metropolitan area, with both metropolitan areas having very similar falls: 15% in Lisbon and 18% in Porto compared to the last quarter of 2021,” highlights Nelio Leão, CEO of Imovendo, in a statement to Negócios.

According to the analysis of digital real estate, most businesses are located in areas of major cities, especially in Greater Lisbon, and that there are fewer and fewer apartments for sale, used or new.

In terms of property sales, Imovendo notes, the pace of business is similar to that of 2021, with more than 38,000 properties sold in the first quarter of 2022 and around 13,000 in April 2022, “meaning demand remains strong despite rising prices. and new restrictions on mortgages.”

“There is still a lot of uncertainty about the interest rate hike, which should take place either in July or September 2022 when the ECB executive committee meets with the eurozone central bank governors, but it is estimated that this increase could reach 25 basis points. if the same thing happens,” says Nelio Leao.

“While the reported inflation rate is already four times higher than estimated in the previous year, an increase in interest rates could send the eurozone into an unwanted recession,” emphasizes CEO Imovendo.

In addition, concludes Leao, “This uncertainty, the war in Ukraine and the resumption of the coronavirus wave are expected to affect consumer confidence and slow down the growth of the real estate market, which has been a very resilient market in recent years. two years.”.

On the other hand, Imovendo guarantees that in the first four months of this year it has sold more than 10 million euros of used properties, representing an increase of 60% compared to the same period last year, and “at the same time, it has allowed its customers to save more than €500,000 in real estate commissions given that the business model differs from current practice in terms of commissions,” the digital real estate company said in a statement.

“Our technology and digital-driven business model allows us to only charge flat fees to owners, making it a robust model and better prepared for a crisis than the traditional real estate model,” defends Nelio Leao, given that in the case Imovendo “owners are at the center of the process, allowing them to reap huge efficiency gains.”

Expectations regarding the purchase and sale of real estate in the domestic market for the first half of the year will stabilize compared to the first half of last year, said Imovendo.

Based on these figures, the real estate company expects €50 million worth of real estate sales in Lisbon and Porto in the first half of the year, “that is, doubling the number of real estate transactions compared to the first half of 2021.” he concludes.
