The SA Listed Property Index (J253) recorded a positive return of 0.04% for the month ended April 2015.

SA's listed property sector will be looking at new asset classes and territories to drive out performance, says Laurence Rapp, CEO of Vukile Property Fund.

South African listed property delivered returns of 26.6% for 2014, outperforming all other asset classes for the year. 

Listed property sector should continue to offer better returns than other income-generating investments such as bonds and cash.

South African listed property once again ranked high among the country's companies earning the most for shareholders.

Speculation about further consolidation in 2014 for the most active sector on the JSE for corporate action, the SA REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) sector, is rife yet again.

Listed property returns likely to beat forecasts

Listed property share prices rally about 5% over the past two weeks, on better than expected results reported by real estate counters this month.

The JSE's listed property sector which has been a sterling performer over the past few years has not managed to maintain its bullish momentum of the past few years of beating the broader all share index.

Though equities outperformed the listed property sector as an asset class, Stanlib's head of property funds, Keillen Ndlovu, gives a compelling reasons to include listed property in investors' portfolios.
