The median value of bank appraisals on housing reached €1,185 per square meter in March, €11 more than in the previous month. On a year-on-year basis, the rate of change increased to 6.8% (5.7% in February). It should be noticed that the number of bank appraisals reported rose to around 25 thousand in the current period, 2.7% more 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.
