Stability to prosper!
In the year we celebrate the 25th anniversary of APPII – Associação Portuguesa dos Promotores e Investidores Imobiliários (Portuguese Association of Real Estate Developers & Investors) and the 20th anniversary of Vida Imobiliária, we present a new version of the Guide for Property Developers & Investors, with a fresh image and content that is in line with the topics and information needs that mark this new phase in Portuguese real estate.
Exploring the major key issues in our property market, this edition invites all of its players to reflect on how we can ensure that this extremely dynamic moment is not simply an exceptional period, but a sustainable and consolidated reality, that will become “the norm” in the future!
The real estate sector proved once again the capacity it has to reinvent itself, resuming the essential role it plays to attract foreign investment and create wealth. Although this is a time of growth, we cannot ignore signs that emerge in the future. Namely regarding political decisions, the openness towards urban renewal funds, the tax burden on real estate activities and properties that are reaching their saturation point!
Welcome to the Guide for Property Developers & Investors!
