RE/MAX, the largest real estate company operating in Portugal, recorded a price volume of around 1.33 billion euros in the first three months of the year, for 16,509 transactions, which represents the best first quarter ever.
The company culminates this period with an increase in the total number of transactions (14.5%) and in price volume (11.4%), when compared to the same period in 2020. In a sector that continues to show signs of resilience in face of the pandemic context, RE/MAX expects a rapid recovery of the market. As in previous cycles, the Portuguese continue to be the ones who most purchased or rented the house, 84.8%.
“The results achieved in the first three months of the year show the excellence that RE/MAX demonstrates at the most different levels of assessment. The growth of all economic indicators, along with others such as the number of visits to the Site, referrals, agencies, etc., can only be explained by the quality of the service provided, the maximum professionalism of its employees and agencies and the resilience in the face of the pandemic crisis.The prospects for this next quarter are naturally optimistic, so we expect to continue to grow, with the aim of make 2021 the best year ever in the chain, achieving double-digit growth and thus exceeding, if possible, the results of 2019, the best year of activity for RE/MAX. ”, anticipates Beatriz Rubio, CEO of RE/MAX.
The official adds that “the resilience of the real estate market was tested in 2020, with the sector proving vital importance for the national economic fabric and that it resisted with distinction the adversities that it faced. The main questions that arise today refer, among others, to the impact of the end of the moratoriums, the return of tourism and international investment or the level of opening up of all economic activity. ”
