Inflation, rising interest rates and mortgages in Portugal

The pace of rising interest rates is increasing due to Eurozone inflation hitting a new record of 5% in December according to the release of the latest data. Rising interest rates mean higher monthly payments for homeowners with a mortgage. As rates are still relatively low it could make sense to refinance your current mortgage. There can be various reasons to refi:

- Lower interest rates mean lower monthly repayments

- Capitalising on the current low rates by choosing a long dated fixed mortgage period which offers financial certainty, stability and peace of mind

- Choosing a different type of mortgage and/or extending/shortening the repayment period

Its been a remarkable time which has seen property prices rise again.

Algarve Property Market Outlook 2021 and review of 2020

Every year in December we reflect on the past year and provide an outlook for the property market in the year ahead, 2021. It has been a year like no other, one that will stay on our minds forever. The by long-term historical standards relatively mild Covid-19 pandemic has led to many lost lives and enormous economic damage causing great uncertainty for people and businesses alike and is still ongoing.

Algarve Property Market Outlook 2020 Revised for COVID-19...

With the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and subsequent economic fallout we are revising our already cautious annual outlook for resale property in the Algarve for 2020.

Algarve Property Market Outlook 2020 and review of 2019

Every year in December we reflect on the past year and provide an outlook for the property market in the year ahead, 2020. The past 12 months continued to see healthy demand for real estate for both permanent living and investment purposes albeit at a slower pace versus the year before. Less supply of existing properties in combination with relatively high prices, sharp downward revisions of economic growth early in the year and uncertainty regarding trade wars and Brexit are the culprits. Despite this property prices continued their upward trajectory by increasing 3% year-on-year, which was in line with the lower end of our expectations. There are reasons to be cautiously optimistic for the upcoming year.
