Posted by RealNex on Jun 1, 2020 8:00:00 AM

There never seems to be a shortage of prognostications about what will happen the moment a crisis hits.  Some of you may remember the dire predictions for real estate at the onset of the Global Financial Crisis (housing oversupply for 25 years).  A few of you may even remember the doom and gloom from the S&L crisis.  Predictably, an immediate conclusion some in the real estate industry reached was that the office market is dead due to Covid-19 – not to return.  No ifs, ands or buts.  We have proven technology that accommodate us working remotely and we have no need to commute to an office anymore!

Commercial Real Estate Markets react swiftly to COVID-19

Posted by Jeff Finn on May 27, 2020 10:44:45 AM

The RealNex Webinar Series continued May 21, with Dr. Jeffrey Fisher providing a Commercial Real Estate Market Update based on Q1 2020 data. The data and results marked a first glimpse of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on CRE markets. Even with just one month of the quarter realizing the full brunt of the change in the world order, industry performance was starkly different than Q4 2019. Private Real Estate values are largely backward looking based on appraised values and comparable sales, while public markets are more forward looking. Thus, the NCREIF Property Index (NPI) of privately-owned real estate eeked out a positive .7% return for the quarter whereas REIT prices dropped a staggering -23.4%. It is expected that in Q2 with the NPI will move into negative territory for the first time since the Global Financial Crisis and that REITS will be buoyed to more closely align with the drop in underlying asset values. With transaction volume plunging in March and even more in April and May, price discovery has yet to be realized.
