Sustainability is one of the global key issues for today’s real estate markets and urban property developments. Major demographic and lifestyle changes in recent decades have already caused economies to fluctuate, affecting the supply and demand of housing and property. Thus, real estate industry approaches should consider aspects such as finance, construction, demographics, and policy issues on one hand, and aspects such as the use of land, the environment, green policies, public welfare, energy performance, and other aspects related to sustainability on the other. This Special Issue will gather original research in the field of sustainable real estate markets and urban planning developments, and how stakeholders are integrating environmental, social, and ethical criteria into their decisions. Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following: sustainable urban development, land planning, local communities, social and environmental criteria, population ageing, social trading, real estate markets, sustainable investments, sustainable finance, price setting, smart cities, urban green policies, energy efficiency, and green housing, among others.
