The real estate crisis, stemming from the surge in interest rates driven by escalating inflation, is not confined to Europe alone. Indeed, it also affects the other major continental blocks, such as China or the United States. In this study, we want to offer a global perspective on the evolution of real estate markets, explore the diversity of responses provided by international players, and draw the outlines of what could be a “global real estate allocation” in the next cycle.
