Luxury Defined – New Report-2016

Luxury Defined

From prime to ultra prime and beyond, the narrative surrounding international luxury real estate markets has become more and more complex over recent years. Amid an increasingly divergent backdrop of influences, the world of prime real estate continues to evolve alongside the changing lifestyles, shifting financial objectives, and other diverse preferences of the people who purchase these high-value homes.

In this year’s Luxury Defined report, we look beyond the headlines and offer fresh perspectives on how macroeconomic factors are impacting prices, inventory, and sales in the prime property market. The report examines data from our affiliates in more than 100 prestige real estate markets worldwide and sets global benchmarks by ranking the top 10 cities for luxury property (Luxury Index) as well as the top 10 performing markets (Luxury Thermometer).
