CRE investing now is all about survival
Rising interest and cap rates, lower transaction volumes, declining new construction starts, and new reluctance from banks for commercial real estate lending are all factors that are making CRE investment challenging right now.
Fundamentals are strong
Despite rising interest rates, the demand/supply and operating fundamentals for multifamily and industrial are strong. The dramatic slowdown in new construction starts will create advantageous fundamentals as demand continues to grow.
Identifying the best investment opportunities
Industrial properties remain attractive due to increased demand from e-commerce growth, onshoring, multi-channel distribution, and domestic manufacturing investments. Multifamily investment requires less capital-intensive efforts compared to other commercial real estate types, providing stable cash flow and appreciation opportunities.
