Some thoughts• What qualifies as a property investment?• Are investors changing the way they look at property?• Where does real estate fit in long term?• What will drive market in future?• Where do we stand with the regions, off prime and secondary property?• Do we need to re-categorise real estate as an investment class or just work harderat promoting it?

So in conclusion• Markets survived everything thrown at them last year• We still need confidence with central policies here and abroad• Question mark is not over volumes but with who is buying and where• No recovery in prospect in less well followed “local” markets• Evidence that contra cyclical and value focused investors looking wider than prime• Demographics will hold keys to new property plays• Do offices become a new opportunity with reversions fixed against residential developmentvalues?• Is it time we spent our efforts repositioning real estate again?
