MADISON, N.J., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC and the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury® program released "The Report," which profiles nearly 50 "Power Markets" where affluent buyers are flocking for lifestyle and culture.

To narrow down the top five Power Markets to Watch for Buyers and Sellers, as well as other key trends for affluent investors, the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury® program collaborated with The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing to analyze the top 5 percent and 10 percent of active and sold listings in 2017.*

Prices leveled off from the record-breaking increases we saw from 2014 to 2016, with inventory of single-family-detached luxury homes rising 30 percent last year. And while luxury real estate in the United States has always been a tale of two coasts, we were pleased to uncover many up-and-coming luxury hubs across the country, including tech towns like Raleigh-Durham and cultural capitals like Nashville, shaking things up in the luxury market."

We found that luxury real estate was strong, stable and consistent in 2017. This market intelligence is critical for agents based in both established and unexpected luxury hubs, especially as they gear up for what is expected to be another strong year in luxury real estate in 2018."
