About the lecture

Can a city's district perception affect real estate prices?

Perception of a city's district is a measure of its infrastructural and sociological qualities. These qualities resonate with a certain demographic of buyers who then place such a district high on their list of priorities when buying real estate, in turn inflating the prices. Likewise, a districts negative perception can lower real estate prices, irrespective of quality of building, equipment and transport options.

A recent social trend that has an effect on district perception is gentrification. Gentrification is relocation of a large body of people to, up to that point, neglected and undesirable parts of the city. Driven by ever increasing prices of real estate in big urban centers like New York or Berlin, younger generations choose to find their housing on the city boundaries. Small businesses, creative i service industry follow them in time, and with them, the real estate capital.

Timely detection of city zones in which gentrification or urban transformation is just starting can have great effects on profitability of real estate markets. Even minor details which are often neglected can indicate big shifts in urban migrations, and „reading“ of social online trends is one of the most efficient tools in this process.
