The median value of bank appraisals on housing reached €1,128 per square meter in September, the same value as in the previous month. This represents a deceleration on a year-on-year basis, with the rate of change moving from 7.0% in August to 5.8% in September. It should be noticed that the number of bank appraisals reported rose to around 24 thousand in September 2020, 3.0% higher than reported in the same month 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.
