CBRE says Dallas #1 town for CRE investors

Dallas #1 for Commercial Real Estate Investors

Commercial real estate investors ranked Dallas-Fort Worth as the #1 market for investment among the top 10 U.S. metros, according to CBRE’s 2023 US Investors Intentions Survey.

Multifamily and industrial are the most sought-after investment sectors in the U.S., with 38% and 28% of investors surveyed indicating these sectors as their most preferred, respectively. In the multifamily sector, 94% of investors surveyed prefer traditional multifamily and 2% prefer build-for-rent residential communities. 

CBRE’s Danny Baker had more, “The apartment sector has proven to be the asset class that fares the best during times of high inflation due to the inherent protection provided by multifamily lease structures and robust demand-side fundamentals that are present in DFW.”

In the industrial sector, 66% of investors surveyed prefer modern logistics facilities and 20% prefer second-generation logistics facilities in major markets.

Grocery-anchored centers are the most popular subsector for retail investors, while office investors largely prefer Class A assets in prime locations.
