It's time for property investors to adopt new strategies.

So much has changed in the political and economic landscape over the past 12 months — locally and abroad — that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to make accurate investment calls.

However, the upside for property investors is that a myriad new opportunities have come to the fore in recent times. In fact, property punters on the JSE are spoilt for choice and currently have more than 50 individual stocks to choose from.

At least 20 are pure rand hedge plays, offering SA investors access to numerous countries across the globe.

To help investors make better sense of the JSE’s ever-expanding universe of real estate offerings, we have asked SA’s top analysts and fund managers to review the JSE’s 30 largest property stocks.

The Financial Mail’s Property Handbook, now in its 17th edition, also provides expert opinion and analysis on residential buying opportunities, both offshore and in SA.

Architect Bruce Wilson provides an update on SA’s green building movement. Also, don’t miss Growthpoint Properties’ Stephan le Roux’s frank and compelling discussion on how mall owners are surviving the downturn.
