The second place in terms of growth was taken by the leader of the previous rating – Dubai, where the cost of luxury residential real estate increased by 16%.

The Bahamas took the third place with a 15% increase, while the fourth and fifth places were shared by the Portuguese Algarve region and South Africa’s Cape Town (+12.3%).

Global luxury housing prices grew by 3.1% last year, while 80 out of 100 monitored markets avoided recession.

Among the world’s regions, the best result was shown by Asia-Pacific, where luxury real estate rose by 3.8%. In North, South and Central America, growth was 3.6%.

The results of 2023 were significantly better than the forecasts of economists at the beginning of the year, said Kate Everett-Allen, head of international residential real estate research at Knight Frank, in the report.
