Real Estate, Construction and Economic Development in Emerging Market Economies examines the relationships between real estate and construction sectors and explores how each sector, and the relationships between them, affect economic development in emerging market economies (EMEs).

Throughout the book, the international team of contributors discuss topics as diverse as real estate finance and investment, housing, property development, construction project management, valuation, sustainability and corporate real estate. In doing so the book demonstrates how the relationship between construction and real estate impacts on economic development in countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, China, Ghana, Nigeria, Turkey, Lithuania, Hungary and Slovenia.

Topics include:

  • the role of real estate brokerage in improving the living standards of citizens;
  • the effect of a mineral boom on construction cycles, real estate values and the socio-economic conditions of people in boom towns and cities;
  • corporate real estate management practices and how they affect economic growth; and
  • the synergies between construction and real estate and how they, in turn, affect economic development.

This book will be of interest to those studying and researching real estate, construction, development studies, urban economics and emerging market economies.
