2024 Luxury Outlook Report Reveals Affluent Home Seekers Expanding Reaches And Sustainability Is Top Of Mind

Sotheby’s International Realty Releases 2024 Luxury Outlook Report Uncovering New Hot Spots for Global Investment, International Destinations With Enticing Tax Incentives, and How Cities and Suburbs Continue to Fare Post-Pandemic

Today, Sotheby’s International Realty published its 2024 Luxury Outlook report, a comprehensive exploration into high-end real estate markets across the globe. Following several years of residential real estate frenzy, the report reveals that buyers have begun to acclimate to a new normal of higher interest rates, with high-end home seekers expanding their reaches to more parts of the world with Australia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey poised for growth. The report explores the trends shaping real estate investment decisions in the year ahead, from the intergenerational transfer of wealth, to pinpointing parts of the world where tax incentives are increasingly enticing.

“Our goal for the fourth edition of the Luxury Outlook report was to couple the expert insight of our agents with the perspectives of leading global institutions on the trends affluent buyers can expect in the months ahead to help them make opportunistic transactions in 2024,” said Bradley Nelson, chief marketing officer, Sotheby’s International Realty. “Despite higher interest rates, demand remains strong in many corners of the market, as people move both because they’re going through major life events—such as new children or new jobs—or simply because they want to upgrade their home and, with it, their lifestyle.”

The Sotheby’s International Realty 2024 Luxury Outlook report was compiled by surveying Sotheby’s International Realty agents around the world who transact in the US$10M+ price category. This information was complemented by gathering supporting data from other leading industry experts, including UBS; The Brookings Institution; McKinsey & Company; and property technology and security firm, Kastle Systems; in addition to art and luxury experts at Sotheby’s, the famed auction house, to round out luxury trends in the year to come.

Key findings featured in the report include:

The international market remains robust; policy and regulatory changes are closely linked with real estate markets and are driving investment decisions

High-net-worth individuals being more mobile than ever – maintaining multiple residences – and looking at transactions with a modified perspective in light of higher taxes, new government incentives, or in the face of a changing climate

The real estate industry using the synergy of the real world and the cyber world to market and sell homes

The dominance of telecommuting and hybrid work shifting the demands of affluent homebuyers

Sustainability moving from a niche interest to now being top of mind for many buyers

A historic rise in mortgage interest rates translating into a higher percentage of all-cash deals around the world

Owners needing to be strategic to minimize the tax impact of their wealth transfer given a strong appreciation of real estate values in recent years and the looming drop in the estate tax exemption

More than 80% of leading Sotheby’s International Realty agents said AI is likely to have the biggest impact on the real estate industry in the next five years vs. virtual reality or blockchain

“As we continue to navigate shifts in the real estate market, Sotheby’s International Realty agents from 83 countries and territories around the world continue to lead the way,” said Philip White, president and chief executive officer, Sotheby’s International Realty. “Luxury Outlook offers our clients unparalleled and trusted expertise as they seek to make informed real estate decisions in the year ahead, whether buying, selling, or investing, wherever they may be.”

4 Living Rooms Perfect For Hosting An Award-Winning Viewing Party

Honey Deylami – Dubai Sotheby’s International Realty

The start of a new year is usually associated with the beginning of new adventures. But in the media and entertainment business, a new year marks an opportunity to reflect on recent triumphs. The entertainment of the past 12 months has been parsed and praised, and the only thing left to do is definitively decide which are worthy of the industry’s biggest awards.

The awards season is a milestone on many social calendars, where friends and family come together in living rooms to root for their favorite contenders—and the quality of the event has everything to do with the spaces in which they take place.

So what constitutes an award-winning living room in which to host an award-winning viewing party? These four properties know how to roll out a red carpet.

A Marina-Side Matinee in California

Sean Stanfield and Ryan Tarr – Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty

With a unique parcel size spanning 3.5 lots in the otherwise compact community of Lido Isle, an award-season party in this impressive property is unforgettable. With west-facing floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the yachts of Newport Harbor, its living room makes the most of the afternoon sunlight and the remarkable sunsets. Immediate access to the covered terrace allows guests to gaze at the stars, whether they’re in front of the television or out by the water.

In fact, the entire residence has been fashioned to unify a series of visually compelling yet individual spaces. This includes a dedicated media viewing space on the second floor, complete with a cozy fireplace for more intimate ambiance.

An Outdoor VIP Screening in Dubai

Honey Deylami – Dubai Sotheby’s International Realty

There’s no better place to watch the Golden Globes than in one of the world’s ritziest, glitziest destinations—Dubai’s iconic Palm Jumeirah. A viewing party at this panoramic glass villa spans the interior and exterior of the home, where the double-height living and dining room extend effortlessly to a fully furnished patio with a retractable poolside screen.

Of course, for those who prefer to do a deep dive on the nominees rather than mix and mingle, the private cinema room down on the basement level is state of the art.

A Chic Soirée in the Center of Paris

Guillaume Lepine – Paris Ouest Sotheby’s International Realty

The proverbial red carpet takes on a tangible form in this colorful apartment. With its lavish architectural flourishes and fixtures—accentuated by an eclectic combination of both antique and contemporary furniture—an awards party in its deluxe living room delivers the right combination of high culture and high drama.

Every room here has themed palettes that create a distinct environment; from the glamorous gold-toned foyer where guests would enter, to the opulent onyx kitchen where they can sip cocktails and debate which actor should have gotten which Oscar. And being located in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, this all happens against a postcard-perfect backdrop of the Eiffel Tower.

A Night at the Cinema in Barcelona

Barcelona & Costa Brava Sotheby’s International Realty

Bringing friends and family to a viewing party at this majestic mansion in Barcelona feels like welcoming them to an invite-only screening at the world’s most luxurious movie theater. They would walk into the home to find an open concept living and dining room with coffered ceilings towering nearly 23 feet overhead, and a sprawling garden and pool just beyond the doors.

But the real showstopper is the plushly-appointed home cinema with soundproof walls and its very own movie projector. The nearby bar and billiards table only add to the convivial atmosphere of the viewing party.

Living rooms have always served as a focal point for people to gather together, and awards season is the prime time to throw a viewing party that’s as dazzling and festive as the galas on the screen.

Inside Two Penthouses At The Plaza

As any traveling businessperson or seasoned globetrotter knows, Manhattan is strewn with hotels, many of them glamorous and highly esteemed. None, however, can hold a proverbial candle to the Plaza, whose silhouette alone is recognizable to esteemed executives, royalty—both heads of state and the Hollywood variety—and Eloise fans young and old. This historic landmark was designed in the early 20th century by architect Henry Janeway Hardenbergh and, following a three-year renovation begun in 2005, it remains as opulent, elegant, and illustrious as the day it welcomed its first guests. On the building’s “the tippy-top floors,” as Eloise certainly would have dubbed them, are the prized private penthouse residences, among them this veritable manor in the sky that comprises two neighboring homes—one a triplex, the other a duplex—in one awe-inspiring aerie of more than 10,000 square feet.

New York, New York | Nikki Field, Mara Flash Blum, Sara Marrache, Sotheby’s International Realty – Downtown Manhattan Brokerage

The three floors of the triplex are linked by an eye-catching central staircase along with a convenient elevator. Its generous floor plan spans some 6,316 square feet and encompasses a glamorous living room with light-flooding windows and a sophisticated marble-backed cocktail bar; a regal dining room with a wine-display and -storage wall and a striking ceiling treatment and light fixture; a streamlined and skylit chef’s kitchen; a sizeable pantry and wine cellar; a family or media room warmed by a gas fireplace; a quiet, contemplative study; and four bedrooms, including a cinematic owner’s suite with two dressing rooms and two spa-inspired baths.

At roughly 3,974 square feet, the Gatsbyesque duplex serves as an impressively spacious and luxurious guesthouse with its own elevator, dazzling mirrored walls, distinctive flooring, handsome moldings, and other Golden Age design elements. Beyond the grand foyer are the atrium-like great room and a light-filled butler’s kitchen. At the top of a bold sweeping staircase with artful wood inlays and an elaborate railing are three bedrooms and three full baths—one of which is a paragon of luxury featuring an ornate wood-burning fireplace and a majestic marble-clad bath.

The pièce de résistance, however, is the 82-foot-long terrace, which the two residences share. Framed by the oxidized copper of the Plaza’s unmistakeable mansard roof, this is the consummate perch for gazing across the emerald sweep of Central Park and the icon-studded skyline of Manhattan as they unfold northward. This is merely one of the rewards reaped by choosing a life lived at the pinnacle of one of the most preeminent and prestigious buildings in the world.
