Real estate

Real estate has become a very distinct asset class in today’s economy. Rapid changes in world economic well-being, refinancing of loans at less than favourable rates and looming regulatory change are forcing companies to continually rethink how they could realise value and secure a competitive advantage through real estate investments.

The real estate sector is certain to emerge from the turmoil of the last three years by being more creative and innovative in the way investors use property. Success in real estate management therefore increasingly requires local market knowledge, international perspective and a high degree of financial expertise.

Careful tax planning is a key component of a successful real estate project. Our tax experts will combine their well-honed technical skills with our vast industry experience to help you maximise the value from your investments.

To understand how Deloitte can deliver an integrated, cross service line approach which lets you focus on your investments, please visit our library of publications and articles. For all pressing issues at the moment, visit our hot topics section and become informed.
