Property markets world wide may be somewhat in flux, but one segment is anticipated to grow in the next few years: branded residences. These properties are the result of a partnership between a developer and a brand, creating residences that can be sold to buyers. Hotel groups like the Ritz-Carlton and The Four Seasons are all on board, which gives luxury buyers the option of homes in desirable locations close to these hotel brands, often with linked services. Here’s what else to know about branded residences.
Here’s Why Buyers Love the Branded Residence
For specific buyers looking for a turnkey second home, the branded residence can be incredibly desirable. It essentially comes down to brand recognition. By buying a Four Seasons branded residence, for example, you can expect an entirely curated Four Seasons-level lifestyle. That means a design and quality of a certain standard, along with the aesthetic you’d expect from the brand itself. But it’s about more than just the space. Branded residences are also about the intangibles—the luxury and exclusivity associated with the brand, which appeals to a certain group of buyers. It’s a designer label on a home, essentially.
Buying into a Ritz-Carlton or Four Seasons branded residence offers assurances that you’re getting a property that meets a specific standard, and very likely neighbors who move in similar circles. That can be reassuring for international buyers. The US currently boasts the biggest market for branded residences, but Mexico, United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and China aren’t far behind.
