Financing is also easier to score this year than last.Cap rates continue to drop, and the Fed’s pledge to keep interest rates low for two more years meansreal estate values won't be as depressed. Investors—from pension funds to sovereign wealth funds—are reporting great returns on their real estate bets, whether core or value add.
