After a relatively inexpressive evolution in the 1990s and early 2000s, Portugal’s housing prices have been increasing in the recent past, with several consequences and impacts on society. This study aims to analyze different economic and social relevance issues related to the Portuguese real estate market. In particular, it seeks to characterize the impact that the evolution of the housing market in its different aspects (prices, rents, gentrification, tourism, among others) has had on the Portuguese society.
