Reflections on the turmoil : Recovery Delayed But Not Denied

The recent downshift in global economic activity and turmoil in the equity markets has caused hand-wringing across all asset classes. Commercial real estate will clearly be affected by several factors including :
- Reduced economic growth prospects
- Curtailed occupancy and rent projections
- More challenging strategy execution environment

But, real estate could also benefit, at least relative to other asset classes, as :
- Investors search for income
- Capital is drawn to stability
- Interest rates remain low

The news is not good, but it's also not time to panic. After four years of volatility, it may feel like déjà vu, but it's not 2008 all over again.
