Property funds may be a way for cautious investors to get back into the real estate market. But some analysts say it may be too soon to get back into the market. "No property investment at the moment is a good idea," said Ben Yearsley, investment manager at Hargreaves Lansdown. "Commercial property is still falling and commercial funds only move around 1 or 2% a month. You can afford to wait for the funds to pick up before making an investment. There's no point in rushing."
