Florida and around the country may want to strongly consider using new strategies for 2019. However, some are inclined to continue using those that have been successful for them in the past.
According to a survey conducted by one commercial real estate services firm, some investors will more be more wary in acquiring new assets in 2019. Even though they will be more cautious, the search for increased yield will pull a higher number of investors into secondary markets. The results of the survey show that while value-add is the most favored asset strategy, investing in secondary markets is not very far behind. In fact, the percentage of investors who are actively employing a secondary market strategy has increased for five consecutive years.
Even with an increase in risk aversion, core assets are not as popular as they once were, most likely due to scarcity and excessive prices. While many investors continue to be optimistic about the market, others are beginning to exercise caution. As a result, some observers believe that the amount of investment sales activity in the United States will fall by 10 percent. There are several areas that are experiencing growth, but when examined across all sectors, that growth is not as consistent as investors would like.
An investment in commercial real estate is never free from risk, whether it is a new development or an existing office building or warehouse. An attorney who is experienced with these types of transactions can often be of assistance in a variety of areas, including regulatory compliance, due diligence, and the negotiation and preparation of the purchase agreement and related documents.
