Based on new data by global property consultant Knight Frank, surging inflation and constant mortgage rate hikes in 2023 have hobbled many mainstream property markets, worldwide. While many property markets have borne the brunt of this pain, property sales volumes, not home prices, have been the greatest casualty to date.
Based on Knight Frank's 2023 Global Waterfront Index, waterfront property generated a 118% premium on average around the world, down only marginally from 121% last year, as Sydney retains the top spot.
According to international property consultant Knight Frank, prime residential rents continue to rise but the rate of growth is slowing. Across ten global cities luxury rents increased 10.2% on average in the 12 months to Q3 2022, down from a high of 11.9% in Q1 2022.
According to international property consultant Knight Frank, global housing markets defied the odds in Q2 of 2022. While many expected a notable slowdown in the second quarter of 2022, both in terms of the index's overall performance, and in relation to the number of countries seeing house price declines in annual terms. Neither materialized.
According to global property consultant CBRE, following a strong global economic recovery in 2021 and early 2022, macroeconomic headwinds are raising fears of a broad-based downturn as central banks address persistent high inflation.
