There's no question about it: Property is back.

After the financial crisis, there was tons of talk about how people might be off property for good for awhile, and how nobody, for a long time, was going to buy property for an investment.

That mentality didn't last long.

From California to London to East Asia, property prices and new developments are red hot.

Via Reuters, here's what the boom really looks like.
