An estimated 80% of our lives are spent in buildings. But more than providing protection, places of employment, sport and entertainment, buildings also represent the world’s largest single asset class. The combined value of all our homes, offices, retail sites, theatres, stadiums and other forms of buildings have been estimated at a total of $228 trillion by Savills (2016). This exceeds by a third the total value of all stocks, shares and securitised debt combined. It is 12 times the annual GDP of the US and far exceeds the value of all gold ever mined ($7.5 trillion, World Gold Council 2017). Real estate is also deeply personal. Residential housing makes up by far the largest share of property ($168.5 trillion). For most people, a home represents the single largest financial investment they will ever make.
