The Economist view of property - 2013

Private Property South Africa
Scott Picken

Dear Investors

In 2006 The Economist magazine published an article talking about the impending global crisis in residential property and how many markets around the world were going to fall dramatically. Most people said they were wrong, until 2008!!!

Well in 2012 we think there are 3 great articles you can read while you are relaxing on your Christmas holiday.

1. The Big Long - A new generation of investors is betting on America’s housing market

2. Global house prices - Searching for solid ground

3. The Economist house-price indicators - Our interactive overview of global house prices and rents

Not really sure how much more research people need to see the value and opportunity in USA and have the confidence to get involved in the greatest wealth transfer of our generation!
