CASAFARI, the Portuguese proptech that has the most complete and clean database of the real estate market in Portugal, has just released the ‘Market Report’, related to Lisbon, Porto and Faro, and other major Portuguese cities with data for the third quarter of 2020 .

According to Nils Henning, founder of Casafari, “the current data already indicate some signs of recovery, especially in the rental market, where both average prices and supply show a recovery.
