Real estate spans land and buildings and about half the world's wealth is locked in real estate - land, oces, shopping centres (like Maponya Mall or Jabulani), hotels, whole neighbourhoods like Soweto, warehouses, golf courses, farms, stadia etc. Your home, your shopping centre, your school, your sports stadium, the nearest government oce and hospital are real estate.
ABOUT BEING A REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL
Real estate professionals advise how to invest in these assets. They value these and advise how much to buy or sell them for. Some of them work in banks (like FNB, NEDBANK and ABSA, for example) where they have to decide who gets to borrow to buy their own home or develop an oce, shopping centre, hotel, etc. The best known real estate professional is the broker who arranges sales and rentals of dierent types of homes.
