In 2015 YouGov partnered with Informa Middle East to gain a deeper understanding of the current and future real estate market sentiment and investment considerations within the Middle East and Egypt.

To help industry professionals expand the Middle East property market with its future investors in mind, YouGov has presented the results of the research annually at Informa Middle East's flagship Cityscape conferences across the region as offical research partner for Cityscape Global, Cityscape Abu Dhabi, RESTATEX Cityscape Riyadh, RESTATEX Cityscape Jeddah, Cityscape Egypt and Cityscape Qatar.

In 2016 the custom study evolved into an annual tracker called the Real Estate Barometer which interviews home buyers and commerical investors from the GCC and Egypt from YouGov's pure research panel and Cityscsape's professional database to shed light on respondents':

  • Financial aspirations
  • Past and future sentiment towards real estate
  • Macro considerations for real estate investment 
  • Micro appeal for real estate investment 
  • Perceived real estate market gaps 
  • Geographical considerations
