Expectations and market realities in Real Estate 2014
The future unfolds
Commercial real estate investments are expected to produce generally solid returns in 2014, according to the authors of "Expectations & Market Realities in Real Estate 2014—The Future Unfolds," an annual forecast report released by Real Estate Research Corporation (RERC), Deloitte, and the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).
Findings indicate that although uncertainties remain, the economy is expected to continue to grow slowly and improve modestly in 2014. Capital is flush, and commercial real estate investment has expanded to the secondary and tertiary markets.
In addition, the report carefully analyzes and offers a research-based assessment of the office, industrial, apartment, retail and hotel property sectors. The report also provides an outlook for the three mostly likely economic and investment scenarios for 2014 and beyond.
