Local Lodging has the potential to unlock untapped financial resources from home ownership. Three out of four Portuguese nationals own their own homes (74.9%). Portugal ranks well ahead of many wealthy countries in Europe and around the world in home ownership: Sweden (70.6%), the Netherlands (67.8%), Canada (67.9%), USA (64.5%), France (65%), UK (63.5%), Germany (52.5%) and Switzerland (44.5%). Accentuating these statistics is the fact that multiple home ownership is commonplace in Portugal.
