The median value of bank appraisals on housing reached €1,170 per square meter in January 2021, €14 more than in the previous month. On a year-on-year basis, the rate of change increased to 6.1% (6.0% in December 2020). It should be noticed that the number of bank appraisals reported dropped to around 25 thousand in the current period, 3.2% higher than reported in the same period of the previous year.
Despite the circumstances determined by the pandemic COVID-19, Statistics Portugal calls for the best collaboration by companies, families and public entities in responding to Statistics Portugal’s data requests. The quality of official statistics, particularly its ability to identify the impacts of the pandemic COVID-19, crucially depends on this collaboration, which Statistics Portugal thanks in advance.
