Emerging markets across the globe are likely to continue to lead the real estate sector's recovery.
This is according to the recent HSBC Global Investment Perspective for August 2010 which revealed that property investment
in emerging Asia and Latin America is improving.
HSBC suggests that the real estate markets in a number of destinations are being driven by strong economic growth.
"The outlook for Asia Pacific is improving, although there is regional divergence and concerns that price bubbles could be forming in markets like Hong Kong and China," the report added.
However, HSBC claims that the picture for continental Europe continues to be mixed, with wide variations at a country level.
For example, France and the Nordics look attractive, whilst the situation eastern Europe, Spain and Greece is more troublesome.
Last month, the director of the Association of Investment Companies, Ian Sayers, stated that activity in emerging markets has increased during 2010, with investments worth 1.16 billion GBP by August.
