Compared to the same period of the previous year, the median value of assessments grew by 13%, reveals the INE.

When applying for a mortgage to buy a house, one of the steps to take is the bank evaluation of the property, which in Portugal continues to break records every month. And what the most recent data from the National Institute of Statistics (INE) tell us is that, in April, the median value of bank evaluation stood at 1,356 euros per square meter (euros/m2), 25 euros more than in the month previous year (1,331 euros/m2).
