This research paper investigates the changes in correlation patterns of volatility between the UK and US property markets and other global markets during periods of inflation. We use the global financial crisis (GFC) and the COVID-19 crisis as proxies for two inflationary periods. Our data set consists of the period between April 11, 2007, to April 4, 2022. We apply a bivariate Dynamic Conditional Correlation (DCC) and a Generalized Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity (GARCH) model to explain the time-varying correlation between UK and US property markets and other global property markets. According to our analysis, there is a sizable time-varying link between the real estate markets in our sample. Additionally, we discover that the GFC and COVID-19 exhibit different relationships with UK and US real estate market indices.
