Luxury Portfolio 2015: A Year of Growth

Luxury Portfolio

Islandia Real Estate, a member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and Luxury Portfolio International, offers affluent consumers the ability to connect and curate their own experience, without the constraint of borders.  Our personal spheres are expanding from work colleagues to the people we meet by chance on our travels, and everyone in between.  Internet and social media have enabled deep relationships to grow even when physical interaction is infrequent.

In 2015, we have the wind at our backs:  the percentage of affluent and wealthy who are optimistic about their own future has continued to rise, reaching 38%, roughly three times the percentage who say conditions are getting worse.  As wealth accumulates in savings accounts and by asset appreciation, a rosier household spending outlook has emerged.  For affluent consumers around the world, discretionary spending in real estate is on the rise.  The top 10% in select markets around the world are simply thriving. Around the world, purchase interest outpaces selling interest, indicating a positive seller’s market.  In the Mainland U.S. there are 50% more buyers than sellers.  On St. John we continue to be in a buyer’s market, with more sellers than buyers and buyers are seeing the advantage of purchasing on St. John.

Global affluent clients see the value of an agent as a protection from risk.  Agents add value by helping navigate the overall purchase process, providing insights on neighborhoods, properties and the market overall, by being respectful of time, privacy and ones lifestyle, by helping to make the process enjoyable and by being affiliated with a company that has a global network of real estate agents/brokers.

Hitlist is a new app for your phone that allows you to configure your home airport, and view your alerts for favorite destinations.  Unlike some price drip tools or deal finders on the market, Hitlist doesn’t force you to configure a price range you’re willing to pay, but instead just lumps fare drops into three broader categories:  “good”, “great” and “spectacular,”  which are roughly within 25%, 15% and 5% of the lowest price respectively.  My suggestion, put in your favorite travel destination, St. John, and get your alerts for affordable fares!  http://www.hitlistapp.com                               Jane Kelly   jane@islandiarealestate.com
