Index coordinator Alison Oliveira said the sharp rise in rents is due to homeowners moving to make up for losses during the pandemic.
“We are seeing an increase in the economy and a lot of prices. People spend more on food, transportation and fuel, and it turns out that property owners are also accustomed to receiving this income and consuming goods in the market. As the rent index varied some time ago lower than the IPCA, we are now seeing a recovery in rents,” explains Allison.
The survey also indicates that coastal cities have recorded some of the highest increases in rents in the past 12 months, as in Florianopolis.
The explanation, according to the research coordinator, may lie in changes in habits caused by the epidemic and remote work.
