The REAL ESTATE Pivot: Three Trends You Can Capitalize on in Real Estate
Jon Hartley |Economic Club of Miami

Commercial real estate prices have been falling, particularly in the office market. Bank lending has tightened up, while the Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities market has weakened. After falling more than 26% in 2022, the Real Estate Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLRE) has dipped by another couple of percentage points in the last 12 months.

 And that’s GOOD news. Here is why—while many developers, financial institutions, and real estate investors have retrenched in the last 12-18 months, that was necessary given previous exuberance. We’re also seeing signs the worst may soon be over. Private real estate valuations dipped just 1.9% in Q3 2023. That was down from 5% at year-end 2022 and the fourth quarter of slowing declines.

At this panel, find out how you can capitalize on these three trends—including which five REIT stocks and funds you should buy to generate the most profit and income as the outlook improves.
