According to the National Statistics Institute (INE), among the regions where rent prices rose the most, the Lisbon Metropolitan Area and the North stand out, which in the last ten years recorded an average annual increase in property rents of 4.13% and 3.7%, respectively.

The autonomous region of the Azores, on the other hand, is the region where rent prices have increased the least, registering an average annual increase of 1.2% between 2011 and 2021, thus being close to the average inflation rate in this period of 0.8 %.

The 2021 Census results also reveal that the Lisbon Metropolitan Area is where the value of rents is highest (average monthly value of €403) and is also the region with the highest percentage of accommodation in which the rents are above €1,000.

At the opposite extreme is Alentejo, where the cost of renting houses is lower, with an average monthly rent of €261.
