A prime residential property is defined as the most desirable and most expensive property in a given location, generally defined as the top 5 per cent of each market by value. The Prime Global Cities Index is a valuation-based index tracking the movement in prime residential prices in local currency across 45 cities worldwide.

The change in prime residential prices for all 45 cities averaged 1.1 per cent in the year to Q3 2019, down from 3.4per cent in 2018 and 4.2 per cent in 2017. Around 76 per cent of cities registered static or rising prices over the 12-month period until September 2019.


Key findings for Q3 2019:

Delhi moves up by one place to 9thrank, registering a 4.4 per cent YoY growth in prices
Mumbai moves up by two places to 28th rank, clocking a 0.8 per cent YoY rise in prices
Bengaluru slips five places to 20th rank, registering a 2.1 per cent YoY rise in prices
Moscow leads the index, with prime home prices rising by 11.1 per cent YoY
Seoul was the weakest-performing global city, with luxury home prices falling by 12.9 per cent YoY
Average growth of prime residential prices globally stands at 1.1 per cent YoY across 45 global cities
76 per cent of cities registered static or rising prices over the 12-month period till September 2019

“While Delhi and Mumbai have moved up in their rankings, luxury home prices have remained stable in both the cities in the past three months. Delhi’s prime residential market, which is characterised by its tight supply, had witnessed a growth of 4.4 per cent in March 2019 quarter, leading to this performance in the Prime Global City Index. Slowing of global economic growth, along with issues like US-China trade relations, Hong Kong’s political tensions, a US presidential election in 2020 and the Brexit conundrum have influenced luxury buyers’ sentiment. Back in India as well, all the policy initiatives have been focused on boosting the development of affordable and mid-income housing, which has left the luxury property development a game for well-funded and organised firms to play,” said Shishir Baijal, Chairman & Managing Director, Knight Frank India.
