Commercial real estate flounders as housing market booms

The rise of Zoom (ZM), Slack (WORK) and other productivity tools has made it easier for people to set up home offices and still get their jobs done. Meanwhile, Amazon (AMZN) and other digital retailers are flourishing amid the Covid-19 pandemic as the shift from bricks to clicks has accelerated.

“There will likely be less demand for commercial real estate due to the rising popularity of online shopping and working from home,” said Ivy Investments global economist Derek Hamilton in an e-mail.

That’s why giant corporate real estate firm Brookfield Property Partners (BPY) said it will lay off 20% of the 2,000 employees in its retail arm, which owns malls and other shopping centers that include Tysons Galleria in Virginia and the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas.

According to an internal e-mail obtained by CNN Business Tuesday, … Read More

Commercial Real Estate Valuation: The Best Approaches

Whether you’re a seasoned real estate investor or a commercial appraiser, it’s important to understand how to value commercial property. The value of commercial property plays a key role in determining how the asset will perform as part of a portfolio.

This being said, the post below covers approaches to commercial real estate valuation, including the quickest and easiest values to determining a property’s value. Keep reading to learn more.

Commercial Real Estate Valuation

Calculating commercial property value is much different than calculating the value of residential real estate—even for the most adept appraisers.

With residential, most appraisers can look at comps in the neighborhood as a baseline, then add or subtract to a property’s value based on specific criteria like square footage, number of bedrooms, and so forth.

CRE valuation is a whole different ball game, however, and is a much more complicated beast. Yet, it’s still invaluable to

Survey: Commercial Real Estate Recovery to Accelerate

While commercial real estate has been dealt a debilitating blow because of the pandemic, there are glimmers of hope that a significant recovery may soon take hold. The Urban Land Institute’s Real Estate Economic Forecast, which was released Tuesday during ULI’s virtual 2020 fall conference, shows that the industrial and retail sectors are particular bright spots that are expected to rebound strongly over the next couple of years. A panel of experts at the virtual meetings sounded off on where they see commercial real estate heading.

Industrial is the “star” of commercial real estate. Total annual returns for the sector are projected to be 4.5% in 2020, 6.2% in 2021, and 10% in 2022, according to the ULI survey, which includes insights from more than 30 economists and analysts at the nation’s leading real estate organizations. The flourishing segment of e-commerce storage is expected to continue to surge, said Suzanne

Why The U.S. Commercial Real Estate Bubble Is About To Burst

In the summer of 2019, I wrote a Forbes piece in which I warned about the U.S. commercial real estate bubble that was inflating and why I believed that it would end badly. Around the same time, I wrote another Forbes piece warning that there was about a two-thirds probability of a powerful recession within the next year and that U.S. commercial real estate was one of the bubbles that would burst as a result. In the current piece, I will explain why the U.S. commercial real estate bubble is likely to burst in the near future as a result of the coronavirus pandemic-induced recession.

As a result of the Federal Reserve’s stimulative monetary policies, U.S. commercial property prices have more than doubled since their 2009 low:

Ultra-low interest rates encouraged a borrowing boom in which commercial real estate loans at U.S.

Is It Ever Too Late to Become a Real Estate Investor?

As a general rule, the earlier in life you invest, the more opportunity you’ll give yourself to grow wealth. That applies whether you’re buying stocks, bonds, or real estate. But if you’re wondering whether there’s a cutoff age for the latter, the good news is, there isn’t. You can actually invest in real estate at any stage of life. But your approach might differ if you’re older.

Investing in real estate at a later age

When we talk about investing in real estate, there are several avenues to take. You can:

All of these are feasible at any age, so let’s explore each one. And let’s also assume you’re older — old enough to be retired, in fact.

Buying an income property

Becoming a landlord can be a full-time job, but if you no longer have a job, you might have the time to buy an income property and oversee
