Real Estate fundamentals in South Africa remain challenging, but strong capital markets and lower yields for longer will be supportive of listed real estate performance. In the short term, listed real estate returns are likely to take their direction from capital markets rather than real estate fundamentals. Over the long term, real estate fundamentals will drive performance. .
