IRR: “Significant Opportunities” Emerging from Market Adjustments

In its newly released Viewpoint 2024, Integra Realty Resources (IRR) puts the question for 2024 this way:  How will the commercial real estate market adapt to the ongoing economic changes, including the uncertainty around borrowing costs and risk-adjusted equity yield?  

“Despite the current market downturn, we see significant opportunities emerging from these market adjustments,” said Anthony M. Graziano, CEO of IRR. “2024 will be a year where disciplined and well-informed investment strategies will shine.” 

Added economist Hugh F. Kelly, who worked with IRR’s analysts to produce the 31st edition of Viewpoint, “While the economy shows signs of stability, the real estate market encounters various pressures, including a slowdown in labor and housing markets. Investors should approach 2024 with a balanced perspective, considering both the risks and potential in different real estate sectors.”  

Viewpoint 2024 examines the outlook for commercial real estate investment from macroeconomic and sector-specific perspectives. National highlights include the following: 

The Economy: “Despite multiple headwinds, including geopolitical tensions and inflationary pressures, the U.S. economy shows remarkable endurance. Real GDP growth remains steady, though cautious optimism is warranted given the uncertain global economic climate.” 

Employment: “The employment landscape reflects resilience but also faces hurdles such as strikes and shifting workforce dynamics. The real estate sector feels these impacts, particularly in office space demand and multifamily market shifts.” 

Interest Rates and Inflation: “With the Federal Reserve maintaining higher interest rates to curb inflation, the real estate sector faces a challenging borrowing environment. This scenario necessitates strategic adjustments in investment approaches and will likely slow the new development pipeline into 2024.”
