2020 Apartment and CRE Risk Forecast
As we close the books on 2019 and focus on what lies ahead, headwinds are beginning to form for the economy and real estate markets. And layering the 2020 election cycle on top of this in today’s era of ‘Blood-sport Politics’ makes risk assessment especially challenging.
This one-of-a-kind workshop will provide you with a road map for assessing risk in the Apartment and Commercial Real Estate sectors of the real estate economy in 2020 & Beyond! Here’s a sampling of what you’ll learn:
- Economic Indicators: Conditions in the economy have a straight- line correlation to real estate markets. While the US economy continues to perform well, Manhattan is cooling and New Jersey begins to waken from its long running slump, early warning signs are taking shape on the horizon. We’ll help you to sort it all out in a comprehensive analysis of today’s economic trends and what they tell us about the future.
- Apartment & CRE Performance Metrics: Although demand for these property sectors continues to expand, not all submarkets are performing equally with some accelerating and others showing signs of fatigue and saturation. We’ll analyze which-is-which in this fast-paced roundup of market performance as the economic trajectory becomes less certain.
- Property Valuations: Understanding where CRE prices are today, and heading in the future, is something market participants absolutely need to know. To this point, a strong economy and investor confidence have pushed cap rates lower, and commercial real estate values higher, despite the turbulence in the money markets. Find out the latest developments for asset values in this timely segment on real estate price trends.
- Construction Spending: Spending on new construction and value-add projects is a major economic engine with vast implications for the larger economy. Join us for this deep dive on which sectors are leading the pack, including hot spots around the state.
- Risk Assessment: Assessing risk requires an understanding of how cyclical trends in the economy and real estate markets intersect with the disruptive forces that can occur more rapidly. This segment will identify the strengths and weaknesses of the various CRE sectors as the pace of change accelerates and the next recession draws closer.
- CRE Forecast: We’ll provide you with a road map for what happens next in this closing segment as we set our sights to what lies ahead to fine tune your business model for 2020 and beyond.
