Budapest shows the highest 12-month residential property price growth in Europe, while ranking behind only Xiʼan (China) and Ahmedabad (India) among 150 cities on the world stage, according to property services company Knight Frankʼs report entitled "Global Residential Cities Index - Q3 2018."

The report also shows that Europe as a whole posted annual residential property price growth of 4.2%, down from 5% in Q3 2017, while the Asia-Pacific region topped the list with growth of 6.2%, up nearly 3 percentage points from last year.
