The world’s top ten reported property sales were all priced above $100 million for the first time in the year to May 2017, new data from Christie’s International Real Estate has found.
Luxury property, which was once an investment niche, is now a rapidly expanding marketplace. Meeting this demand, and the excitement surrounding this emerging market, is the latest incarnation of The Luxury Property Show – which returns to London Olympia this autumn.
The show – which runs from Friday 27 to Saturday 28 October – is now in its 11th year and plays host to more than 50 exhibitors from around the world. It provides investors with everything from Mediterranean villas to Thai beachside apartments, as well as luxury lofts in New York and alpine retreats in Northern Europe.
Included in the sponsors and exhibitors list this year is St James Place Wealth Management, Remax, Almanzora, Baker Woods, Mansion Global, Yamaha Music, Corcoran Group, Prime Properties and the International Property Awards, plus many, many more.
In addition to the wide range of stands and exhibitors on offer, the show also includes a schedule of in-depth seminars. These talks aim to offer “real world investment advice” for investors, ranging from those exploring the market for the first time to seasoned investment professionals with worldwide portfolios.
They will also tackle key market questions, including how to mitigate political risk and uncertainty (particularly relevant at the moment) and where to head to find the next property hotspot. Key industry figures and property funds will be among those delivering seminars.
“We live in a globalised world and leading investors increasingly recognise this, and build investment strategies appropriately. By taking a big picture approach – and factoring in the political and economic trends that can impact property values – those willing to do their research can make some healthy returns,” one key sponsor said.
Eddie Sikora, who directs the show, added: “Investing in property has always been a good option and, over the long-term, property investments continue to outperform other asset classes.”
“With many domestic markets saturated, however, and housing becoming an increasingly political concern, investors now are looking globally and focusing attention on the more exclusive end of the market – which carries less risk and where returns can be greater.”
The Luxury Property Show runs from 27–28 October at the London Olympia. For further details about the show and opportunities to either exhibit or visit, you can head to http://www.theluxurypropertyshow.com/.
