Real Estate Executives Favor Industrial, Infrastructure, Multifamily Sectors in 2017
January 12, 2017 | REIT.com
Commercial real estate executives are upbeat on industrial, infrastructure and multifamily asset classes for 2017, according to the 2017 Real Confidence Executive Index from Altus Group, in partnership with NAREIT and the National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries (NCREIF).
The Real Confidence Executive Index survey polled senior executives on how they would each allocate a theoretical $1 billion in commercial real estate investments to get the best returns for 2017. The Real Confidence Executive Index is based on these allocations and represents a total theoretical investment of $65 billion in a variety of commercial real estate investment opportunities.
“The Real Confidence Executive Index survey offers perspective on the economic and marketplace factors that will shape our industry from the decision-makers who are leading it,” said Steve Wechsler, president and CEO of NAREIT.
I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years. I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs. The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings. This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
