Without Portfolio Deals, Investment Sales Volume Drops in First Half of 2016
Aug 18, 2016 |
If you noticed some slowdown in investment sales activity this year, you are correct. Well, partly.
Last year marked a banner year for capital investment in commercial real estate. But 2015 was also flush with portfolio and entity-level deals that are not easily replicable year-over-year.
“The actual flow of capital is down but still at quite an elevated level. We haven’t had the major portfolio deals of 2015. In a way, the lower volume for 2016 is not necessarily a story about a weak 2016, but an unusual 2015,” says Jim Costello, senior vice president with Real Capital Analytics (RCA), a New York City-based research firm.Go Back
“Always, but especially in this day of lawsuits and ever increasing regulations, the responsibility for a financial advisor t do their own due diligence on products they sell falls squarely on themselves. No one is going to take greater interest in protecting their practice than they are. We use the Blue Vault Partners Nontraded REIT Review to keep us informed of the performance of every single nontraded REIT. Finally, complete transparency is available for advisors using nontraded REITs. Every advisor using REITs in their practice should make the small annual investment of subscribing to Blue Vault’s reporting services.”
