The report uses a small scope to evaluate specific individuals in order to compile the most accurate perspective of the entire elite community. With the understanding that luxury residential real estate is one of the most intimate possessions characteristic of their wealth, the report shows that the average UHNW individual owns a total of 2.7 properties. The UHNW Residential Real Estate Index within the report showcases that the overall value of such residences rose by 8% over the past year, and will continue to face steady growth as locations become more desirable and land becomes less available.


The Global Luxury Residential Real Estate Report takes a look at the spending habits of UHNW consumers relevant to their luxury residential property investments, while identifying the most notable markets in which they invest. To see the full report, click here.
