Prudent optimism for Iberian real estate

There is more ‘prudent optimism’ today in the market, António Gil Machado, Director, Iberian Property tells Real Asset Insight.

In terms of the data, ‘the first quarter was very high level with an important volume of deals, so 2020 was really really looking promising’ says Machado.

The second quarter was a different story with deal volumns significantly lower despite some big transactions.

But, Machado says, the winners are residential, both rented and affordable, and logistics.
