Borrowing and lending for commercial real estate deals is hardly dead in the water, but it is not as active as it was only a year or two ago, as interest rates have crept up and transaction volumes are down.

Essentially, there is a more conservative mood in the capital markets, according to the speakers at our Orange County Capital Markets & Investment Forum. Both borrowers and lenders are feeling it, especially as the outlook for rent growth in multifamily is not as robust as only a few years ago.

The Post-Hurricane Hospitality Silver Linings Playbook

The gale force winds have died down and devastating floods have ceased. Though areas in the Caribbean most impacted by the active hurricane season in 2017 face a long road to recovery, hotel operators are finding hope in the wake of the destructive storms.

“Of course with natural disasters, we want to recognize the most important issue is the welfare of human lives.

Autonomous Vehicle Tech Could Be The Biggest Disrupter In Commercial Real Estate

When autonomous vehicles go mainstream, the commercial real estate implications will be massive — from urban development planning to public transit impact and a shift in parking lot development.

Though driverless cars will benefit cities' live-work-play synergy in many ways, autonomous vehicle technology also has the potential to bring massive disruptions to the industry as developers are forced to repurpose properties in order to accommodate this new normal.
