Posted by Jeff Finn on Aug 24, 2020 3:30:00 PM

With data now available from the first full quarter since the Covid-19 pandemic shut down the economy and forced work from home rules, RealNex hosted its quarterly Market Update with Dr. Jeffrey Fisher. Based on his research using data from the National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries (NCREIF) and others, Dr. Fisher presented his findings and analysis of a dramatically altered landscape. Although the impact was mitigated by government programs that enabled more rent to be paid than otherwise might have, rents, NOI and returns all dropped for the first time since the 2008 Global Financial Crisis (GFC).

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.
