Real Capital Markets Releases Investor Sentiment Report
Real Capital Markets, the online marketplace for commercial real estate, has released its third Annual National Investor Sentiment Report. The report looks at market dynamics and investor activity to provide real estate investors with insights and advice for the upcoming year. The reports general focus is on the Retail, Industrial, and Multifamily sectors. Real Capital Markets is a subsidiary of C-III Capital Partners, founded and run by Andrew Farkas.
The 2019 report is generally optimistic, but with a cautionary tone. Sentiments by investors and survey participants in the report show that nearly two thirds of investors think that the market is somewhere in between boom or bust, largely due to the presence of strong market fundamentals. The report also identified multifamily homes as the most attractive asset class due to the central need for housing. 36% of the survey participants named multifamily homes as their top choice for investment, with industrial real estate as a close second.
One important takeaway from the report is that interest rates are a key factor for the market this year, and investors will have to adapt their strategies to fit the ever-changing market conditions. It is critical that real estate investors continue to look ahead for new opportunities for long-term growth.
Real Capital Markets has been a constant leader in innovation in the real estate market since its founding in 1999. It was acquired by C-III Capital Partners, and fits seamlessly into C-III’s portfolio of asset management and commercial real estate services. Andrew Farkas has successfully established C-III as a leader in the industry, leveraging the individual power of the different subsidiaries to deliver higher returns for investors.
