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.
According to new data by CBRE, global commercial real estate investment volume increased by 34% year-over-year to $282 billion in Q1 2022. Investment was up by 47% in the Americas, 25% in EMEA and 5% in Asia-Pacific. Note that all investment totals and percentage changes cited in this report are in U.S. dollars.
The sector's share of capital flows will continue to be supported by favorable demographic, economic and capital markets tailwinds which will drive expansion in established markets and accelerate growth in emerging markets in Asia Pacific and Europe.
The pandemic-induced housing boom continues with prices rising by 9.2% on average across 55 countries and territories in the year to June 2021.
