After a period of residential real estate fervor, the report indicates that buyers are adapting to a new era of higher interest rates. High-end home seekers are expanding their horizons to more corners of the globe, with Australia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey identified as regions poised for significant growth.

Survey Methodology:

Compiled by surveying Sotheby’s International Realty agents specializing in the US$10M+ price category, the report draws on insights from professionals on the ground. This primary data is complemented by additional input from leading industry experts, including UBS, The Brookings Institution, McKinsey & Company, and property technology firm Kastle Systems. Furthermore, contributions from art and luxury experts at Sotheby’s auction house round out the comprehensive analysis.

Key Findings:

  • Robust International Market: Global real estate markets continue to exhibit strength, with policy and regulatory changes closely influencing investment decisions.
  • Mobility of High-Net-Worth Individuals: Affluent individuals are more mobile than ever, maintaining multiple residences and adjusting transaction perspectives due to factors such as higher taxes, government incentives, and climate considerations.
  • Synergy of Real and Cyber Worlds: The real estate industry leverages the synergy between the physical and digital realms to market and sell homes effectively.
  • Impact of Telecommuting and Hybrid Work: The dominance of telecommuting and hybrid work models is reshaping the demands of affluent homebuyers.

  • Rise in Mortgage Interest Rates: A historic increase in mortgage interest rates is translating into a higher percentage of all-cash deals globally.
