Do Oil Prices Hold Real Estate Over a Barrel?

The full report

Do Oil Prices Hold Real Estate Over a Barrel? explores recent oil price history to understand the implications for corporate activity, real estate and consumer spending. This publication belongs to REal Insights, a series of strategic commentary founded in research and market perspectives written on topics and trends that impact real estate.

In the 10 months since the price of oil started its dramatic descent from continuous oversupply, we have been exploring questions from our clients’ perspectives.  When will the markets recover?  Is there a correlation between oil prices and rents?  Do oil price and property crashes go hand-in-hand?  What does it mean for oil-sensitive locations such as Houston and Aberdeen?  

Whilst oil prices seem to be returning to sustained growth, these questions remain relevant as corporate activity, real estate and consumer spending adjust. Our latest whitepaper explores these themes with reference to previous cycles and spotlights on selected occupational markets.
