Real Estate


The real estate sector is facing significant head winds from weak business fundamentals, such as high vacancy rates, negative absorption, flat rental rates, excess supply, and high leverage in both the commercial loan and CMBS markets.

In retail, e-commerce and the disappearing middle class have tremendously impacted bricks and mortar stores, and the divide between the best and worst malls is widening. With the current preference for urban office and mobile work locations, the suburban office markets continue to struggle to compete. While multifamily has been the recently favored asset class, oversupply and a normalization of housing trends is a growing cause for concern.
