To promote their services PortugalPropertySale.co.uk commissioned the creation of an infographic, the infographic revealed some interesting statistics about the current state of the Portuguese property market. The statistics that can be found in the infographic would suggest that the prices of Portuguese property are currently depressed and maybe in a buyers market.

According to the infographic (a full size version of which can be found by visiting this link), house prices dropped by an average 4.7% throughout Portugal last year but the Algarve region saw the largest price decline, house prices in the Algarve region of Portugal dropped by 5.8% in 2013.

The decline in property prices has also seen a decline in construction, the Portuguese construction industry's production index was down by 19.4% in 2013, construction industry wages were down 12.1% and employment in the sector was down 15.9%.

The construction industry's decline in production and the generous mortgage subsidies that are being offered by the Portuguese government could mean a supply shortage. A person considering the purchase of a Portuguese property may wish to act now whilst the prices are depressed, if a supply shortage did occur it could lead to rapidly increasing prices if or when the market for Portuguese property picked up.
