CBRE and VdA launched the 5th edition of The Property Handbook

This is a guide for real estate investors which offers information about the market and its legal and fiscal settings, in order to support investors’ investment strategies, besides «contributing to expanding the knowledge base, in terms of deciding where to invest», at a time when the «market players are, generally speaking, optimistic about a quick recovery of the pre-crisis indicators», argued Miguel Marques dos Santos, real estate partner at VdA.

This year, “The Property Handbook 2020”  was presented in an exclusively online format, in accordance with the current connectivity and interactivity trends, offering a market analysis in terms of investment and occupancy for the office, retail, logistics, housing and hotel segments. The guide shows statistical data following the sector’s evolution during the last decade, charts and maps, including, data updated during the pandemic. 

The guide was first launched in 2013, when Portugal was under the financial crisis, with a huge need for foreign investment. The guide was now launched under an unprecedented context of uncertainty, due to the pandemic, which was more intensely felt in some assets. But CBRE is optimistic regarding this year’s investment volume and calculates it might reach 2.500 million euro, shared Francisco Horta e Costa, Managing Director at the consultant.

Cristina Arouca, Director of Research at CBRE, remarked that «we are still living under heavy uncertainty, but it has become clear that Covid-19 accelerated some trends which were already being felt in the last few years, especially the growth of remote work and e-commerce. Betting on a document which offers investors, especially foreign investors, needed information and insights, updated regularly, so they can bet on the Portuguese real estate market, confirms these new trends. Even during the pandemic, we still witness a big interest from foreign investors in our market, and this guide provides the answers to many of their questions».
