"Power Markets" include both well-established and unexpected luxury markets based on indicators such as airport accessibility, ease of doing business, a prestige brand presence and a housing stock that prioritizes privacy, views and exclusivity. Beyond providing a behind-the-scenes look into the nation's leading luxury real estate markets, insights collected from The Report's Power Markets list have uncovered the stories behind certain standout markets, and why a few unexpected markets might become the next up and coming hot spots for luxury real estate.

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.*
