RE Investors Look Forward to Busy 2019 With Cautious Optimism

May 03, 2019

Marcus & Millichap’s outlook on real estate investment for the first half of 2019 and the latest NREI/Marcus & Millichap investor sentiment survey shows commercial real estate investors are expecting another active year but are still proceeding with caution. The outlook for improving property fundamentals is slightly more neutral than the investor sentiment recorded in the second half survey of 2018.

Forty percent of respondents expect property values to rise faster in the next 12 months, 38 percent were neutral and 22 percent don’t believe values will rise faster this year. Those sentiments are consistent with the broadly held perception by 70 percent of those surveyed that values are near a cyclical peak and will likely influence how they allocate investments this year.
