“The prestige market hasn’t been impacted by wage pressures and tightened lending from the financial institutions as have the other markets,” says Knight Frank’s head of residential research Australia Michelle Ciesielski on releasing the company’s Global Prime Forecast 2019 report.
“The local economies are reasonably strong and we’re seeing a lot of expats returning to buy with foreign currency, which are both having a favourable effect on the prestige markets.
