Luxury homes are those that are valued most in Lisbon’s housing market. According to recent data released by the Confidential Property database, the price of houses in the highest segment increased by 23% between 2013 and 2015. Between 2010 and 2013 the variation was already positive, with an increase of 14%.

Although the largest increases are in the most expensive price bracket, the mid-range market is also recovering, albeit at a more moderate pace, having appreciated 9.5% in the last two years (2014 and 2015 ), after a cumulative decline, also of 14%, between 2010 and 2013.
