Based on new data by Kate Everett-Allen, head of international residential research at Knight Frank, despite 2 regional wars, rising mortgage rates and inflation, global economies have displayed surprising resilience, with recent inflation figures suggesting a turning point.
Global commercial real estate investment declined by 51% year-over-year in Q3 to $142 billion. Investment fell by 53% in the Americas, 54% in Europe and 31% in Asia-Pacific. Rising interest rates in many countries contributed to the significant drop of investment activity.
Global house price growth ticked up to 3% in Q2 of 2023, up from 2.9% in the previous quarter. About a third of markets saw prices decline during the most recent three months, narrowing from four in ten over the past year.
Based on the 10 cities covered by Knight Frank's Prime Global Rental Index, global rental values rise 7.5% in the year to June. While this rate was down from the 8.2% seen in Q1, and lower still than the 12.2% growth reached in the first quarter of 2022.
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.
