This study, with a focus on the Nigerian property market, examines real estate research priorities of developing economies. This is with a view to establishing research directions for education and research institutions in Nigeria and similar markets. One hundred and thirty-five real estate practitioners in the Lagos metropolis participated in the survey. Fifteen general and 35 specific real estate research topics are assessed. Development finance and land policy issues ranked highest among the general real estate research priorities. The top real estate research priorities were impact of capital flows in and out of the property market, land reform, and taxation issues. The underlying general real estate research priorities were property portfolio diversification and risk management, land policy issues, and development finance and factors affecting property investment. The results reflect the need to critically look into the property investment environment and tax regulations in Nigeria.
