2014 Global Management Survey: Key Trends

Posted on August 6, 2014 in Viewpoints by admin

The U.S. commercial real estate industry continued its slow yet steady recovery in 2013, with improving property fundamentals buoyed by gradual growth in the broader economy. Transaction volumes increased for the fourth year in a row, up 20% from 2012, while asset prices continued to rise across all major property types (especially for top tier assets/markets). The market was unquestionably bolstered by Federal Reserve policy that has continued to keep interest rates at low levels, a factor which, coupled with a lack of supply in the marketplace, has helped lead to strong demand for real estate.
