Our outlook for real estate investing
A new cycle emerges in 2021.
As we enter 2021, the U.S. faces a markedly different real estate investment landscape than it did just a few months ago. After navigating a stormy 2020, shaped by the massive uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic and the presidential election, we believe that clearer skies are on the horizon.
The 2021 recovery goal is bound to focus on a return to normalcy—the caveat being that some things may not feel truly “normal” again for many years. This transition back to “business as usual” will play out differently across the various asset classes. With a high diversity of potential outcomes in play and an outlook of a nearly 40% increase in total U.S. transaction volume according to CBRE, 2021 should present ample opportunities for investors across a multitude of geographies and strategies.
