Mortgage rates increased in New York City this week. Meanwhile, the city is on pace to be home to the world's largest number of superrich by 2025, The Real Deal reports.
According to Knight Frank, a global property consultancy, the Big Apple will replace the current leader, London, as the place the superrich choose to live.

In Russia, 33 percent of the ultra-wealthy are considering leaving their country.
