What impact will Covid-19 have on prime residential markets globally?

Vienna, Monaco, Shanghai, and Lisbon are just the 4 main prime residential markets that will see a hike in price in the entire remaining months of 2020 because the coronavirus impact takes a toll on the luxury residential property industry worldwide. A Knight Frank’s analysis of twenty cities worldwide gave a highlight of the travel direction for prime places in 2020 including 2021, according to projections for supply and demand, the announced coronavirus impact in the several markets, and varying government stimulus mentioned.

There’s an unprecedented global economic uncertainty scale, which therefore puts a precise satire on forecasts, and it’s challenging. Because of that, Knight Frank positioned the 20 cities that were analyzed to 4 prove bands that infuse market that’ll see: solid growth in price of 5 percent or more, low growth in price by 0 to 5 percent, low or flat price falls by 0 to -5 percent, and solid price falls by -5 percent or less.

During the beginning of 2020, there was a prediction by Knight Frank that markets worldwide would see a prime price growth that is positive. The 2020 Prime Global Forecast of Knight Frank was led by Paris with growth that’s expected to be 7 percent, followed by Berlin and Miami at 5 percent, then prime growth price of Sydney and Geneva set at 4 percent. From the cities predicted to have a declined prime prices, emerging markets or those cities that saw weak price growth in the last quarter of 2019 are the jobs that will likely get the hardest hit. An exception is Singapore; a prediction by Knight Frank stated that there’ll be a 3 percent rise in prime prices in the ensure your 2020 but the length of that period that it’s affected the Singapore market and coronavirus fallout alters the prediction to about a 5 percent fallout.

From the 3 tracked United States cities, it’s expected that Miami will have the strongest performance in the entire 2021. This market was already solidifying in 2019; in part because of the SALT (State and Local Tax) deduction that increased the appeal of Florida, but the coronavirus crisis has also underlined the lifestyle advantage of Miami and several who live in high-density industries.

Los Angeles lacks a new prime supply, and that’ll cushion the fall in price in 2021, while the prime prices in New York, quite similar to London, have declined recently, but the transactions started picking up almost mid-2020. There’s safe-haven flows evidence from New York markets that are emerging in the last couple of weeks and the equity markets volatility is prompting a couple of HNWIs (high net worth individuals) to rebalance their investment catalogs offering property assets greater weight. Even though we expect some resilience when it comes to prime prices in a couple of markets, the volume of sales in every market has significantly dropped in the second quarter of 2020, even though most of these markets believe the showdown will be short-lived, and a gain in traction from July 2020.
