Is there light at the end of the tunnel? Market Trends & Insights

It’s been about five years since the last peak in the real estate markets. Since then, a majority of cities have suffered from decreasing occupancy, rental rates, and property values. In addition, building owners and lenders have had to undertake work-outs on over a trillion dollars worth of distressed properties in an economy that has been described as the ‘new normal’; that is, an economy that has been buoyed by low interest rates but with more stringent underwriting standards, limited job growth, and public policy uncertainty.

Join our distinguished panelists to discuss the recent state of the real estate market, the near-term outlook on the economy, and underlying trends that will affect real estate development, operations, investment, financing, and sustainability.

  • Robert Edelstein, Co-Chair, Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics, Professor and Maurice Mann Chair in Real Estate, Haas School of Business
