Location, liestyle, and provenance, particularlyat the top end o the luxury residential realestate market, are the hallmarks o value andoten equally as important as price whenHNWIs consider a property purchase. As such,it was decided not only to examine record andaverage luxury home prices, inventory, andhousing market supply, but also to explorebuying trends, client proles, and liestyleamenities that shape the luxury market.Ten important global cities were selected –cities where aliates o Christie’s InternationalReal Estate hold a strong market share – andcompared across these and other characteristics.This culminated in the development o the“Christie’s International Real Estate Index”,which synthesizes and compares key metricsacross these 10 cities.

examined. These factors included: city GDP (2);number of billionaire residents (3); AT KearnyGlobal Cities Index (4); UBS Most ExpensiveCities Ranking (5); S&P Case-Shiller Index (UScities only) (6); Globalization and World CitiesResearch Network rankings (7); number of 
Fortune 500 companies headquartered in a
city (8); and Christie’s International Real Estate
