Is the window for oversized returns on commercial real estate behind us? Quite likely, according to Goldman Sachs, which recently issued a report implying real estate stocks may now be too risky for investors.

Real estate industry experts have mixed views, however, about whether the ship has already sailed for high returns on commercial real estate investments.

“People have read this report as if to say that this is no longer a time to get into real estate. I disagree in the sense that it assumes that people have just one motivation when investing,” says Jim Costello, senior vice president with New York City-based research firm Real Capital Analytics (RCA). “One can have a number of motivations while investing, and different types of real estate and different real estate vehicles can satisfy these motivations.”

I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture.  For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments.  Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients.  I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
