The Knight Frank report considers that, as happens in most residential rental markets, the luxury real estate sector is not immune to the chronic gap between supply and demand that has been observed for more than three years. However, although demand remains strong, the ability of tenants to continue to keep up with rising rents is conditional on issues of accessibility to financial services. This fact, coupled with a slight improvement in rental supply, limits the pace of rental growth.

In Portugal, according to data from Quintela and Penalva, the rental market continued to rise throughout 2023. In the last 12 months (22 to 23 December), the greatest growth was recorded in Porto (15.9%), followed by Cascais (12.5%). and Lisbon (12.3%). If rental prices in the capital rose mainly in apartments, it is houses in Cascais that have increased in value the most, with an increase of 19%.
For Francisco Quintela, co-founder of Quintela e Penalva, “the recorded increase reflects the global trend of shortage of supply compared to demand, on the one hand, but it also reflects the growing interest of buy-to-rent investors in projects being implemented and launched on the markets.”
