Savills Prime Index: World Cities

The latest findings from the Savills Prime Index: World Cities

Whether it’s an apartment overlooking New York’s Central Park, or a pied à terre in the heart of Paris, property in the world’s leading cities remains highly attractive to buyers and investors alike. By tracking the performance of 28 cities from San Francisco to Sydney, the Savills Prime Index: World Cities showcases the leading cities for prime residential property, and can help to inform buying decisions.

We open the report with our prime residential values table and shine a light on markets that are going through various phases of growth.

Throughout the report, we compare both capital value growth and rental value growth, as we see rental values outperform capital values for the first time in a decade. We break this down city-by-city to see the changes in values across the globe.

In 2019, Berlin’s prime property market performed strongest for capital growth, while US cities dominated the rental markets. Moving in to 2020, uncertainty will continue to have an impact globally, but we expect to see a slight rebound with a predicted average global capital value growth of 1.8%. Will our 2019 frontrunners continue to lead the pack in 2020? Find out more in our report.
