In Portugal rooms for rent are gaining popularity

According to the portal idealista, in the first half of 2016 demand for private rooms in apartments and houses increased by 123%. Rents increased by 9% over the past year and reached €220.

The most significant jump in prices was observed in Lisbon and Porto. In these cities the average price of rent of the rooms is €257 and €209, respectively.


A typical tenant in Portugal is 31 years old, he does not smoke and has no pets, prefer accommodation in the city center. The young tenants live in Coimbra - due to the large number of universities in the city. In 93% of cases in the house or shared apartment live people of both sexes, in 6% - only women. The share of "only men" apartments and houses is only 1%.


The researchers note that the rooms in Portugal are now rented not only by students. There may be young people who just begin their labor activity. Also rent a room is the best option for young people who dream to separate from parents. It is expected that this trend in the coming years will receive further development – the popularity of renting rooms will grow.
