Mansion Global’s outlook for the year, from amenities, developments, what’s in store for top markets and more

The sudden downturn housing markets took after two years of heady, frenzied activity is expected to define much of 2023, as well.

Despite subdued dealmaking worldwide, a number of trends will shape the luxury housing market in the next 12 months. For one, buyers are expected to favor urban and lower-cost markets, as workers settle into office routines once again and even the affluent look to stretch their budgets further. Meanwhile, new development will see comparatively strong sales following a period of booming construction. Many new projects, from Boston to Helsinki, are prioritizing wellness elements, fewer units and an emphasis on eco-friendliness.

Sustainability in the form of upcycling and craftsmanship will remain a strong element of high-end interior design, too. Though the most dramatic shift in terms of design will be a doubling down on maximalism—busy, colorful bursts of personality in people’s homes. By contrast, home tech is getting much quieter, as connected devices require less input than ever to keep everything from the temperature to home security running smoothly.

In 2023, home tech will recede further into the background—even as it takes more control of our daily lives. But humans will still have a voice, literally, in how machines run.

Voice activation will become even more pervasive and much smarter, with devices asking exactly what we mean.
