The report's author Chris Graham (founder of specialist real estate marketing agency Graham Associates), presented the latest findings to invited senior market practitioners at a launch event at Watson Farley and Williams' London office. He was joined by Daniel von Barloewen (Director of Savills International Development Consultancy) and Julian Houchin (Commercial Director, iO Adria) who gave their expert perspectives on the whitepaper and discussed some of the key findings.

With exclusive insights and contributions from industry leaders around the globe, the updated report provides wide-ranging information about the branded residences market and highlights a number of interesting findings, including:

  • A 27 per cent increase over the last two years in the number of hotel operators offering branded residences
  • The average price premium on branded residences over comparable non-branded residences is between 20 and 30 per cent – although some experts believe that this will increasingly become squeezed, especially in developed markets
  • An increased focus on investment, with more owners putting their properties into managed rental programmes
  • A vast pipeline of new hotel branded developments in South East Asia, with the number of branded residences in the region expected to double in only four years.

Chris Graham comments: "It is clear that the branded residences sector remains extremely resilient and popular among buyers, investors, developers and brand operators. The significant price premium can be easily justified, with neither party requiring too much convincing of the many well-proven benefits, which has led to the remarkable success of this formula."
