Houses (much) more expensive since 2010  

The price of houses in Portugal, as well as in eight other EU Member states, more than doubled since 2010 and the forecast is that it will continue to increase, according to the European Commission, as can be read in publication shared by Notícias ao Minuto.

Therefore, despite the cooling down of the European real estate market, houses continue to become increasingly expensive, as concluded in a chapter focusing on the housing crisis in the autumn economic forecasts. This cooling of the markets, since 2022, occurs "alongside a significant slowdown in credit levels", due to the monetary policy of the European Central Bank (ECB).  

House prices have experienced a strong growth throughout the EU over the past decade, especially during the pandemic. House prices began to rise during the economic recovery of the 2010s, although with significant differences between member states, as "prices doubled in Germany and the Netherlands, while Portugal, Ireland, the Czech Republic, Austria, Luxembourg, Latvia and Lithuania experienced even stronger price growth," explains the European Commission, cited by Notícias ao Minuto.

Some markets, however, have already reached the peak in terms of house prices in the second quarter of 2022, while in others "the steady growth of prices continues," as is the case of "Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Portugal, and Slovenia".

Regarding the future, the news explains that the Commission foresees that "restrictions on families' loan contracting capacity suggest that housing prices will remain under pressure in the coming quarters before resuming growth".
