Commercial Real Estate Outlook

In 2019, the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) estimated the combined value of commercial real estate in the United States at the end of 2018 at approximately $16 trillion. That figure reflected a period when the market was entering the late part of its cycle, with occupancy rates near their peak and rent growth decelerating or even flatlining, all while the U.S. was seeing steady economic growth.

Fast forward to today, and the picture has drastically changed-for the worst. The response to the coronavirus pandemic is unleashing havoc on property fundamentals for retail and lodging, creating uncertainty for the future of office, and bolstering the prospects of technological infrastructure and logistics plays such as data centers, cell towers, and industrial properties linked to e-commerce. Meanwhile, long-term interest rates-long viewed as a major factor supporting valuations-have sunk to all-time lows. How do investors navigate through the riskier landscape today, and what are the prospects for commercial real estate going forward?

Join us for an upcoming webinar on June 24, 2020 as CFA Society Boston welcomes Sonny Kalsi, President of BentalGreenOak, a global real estate investment management advisor, to discuss the outlook for commercial real estate. We'll explore the opportunities and risks for various commercial property types and assess the lasting impact of the current pandemic on the future of real estate.
