Commercial Real Estate in Tumultuous Times

Learn how the current economic situation is impacting different commercial real estate asset classes.

On March 20th, Ian Formigle, our Chief Investment Officer, Dr. Julia Freybote, Professor of Finance and Real Estate at Portland State University, and Karlin Conklin, Investors Management Group Principal, Executive VP came together for a special live broadcast to discuss both the current economic environment and offer some historical analysis.

“The commercial real estate industry looks at volatility in quarters and years, not days and weeks,” Ian Formigle, Chief Investment Office at CrowdStreet.

Among other things, the panel discussed:

  • How the current economic situation is impacting different commercial real estate asset classes.
  • Why some sponsors may decide to pause distributions and focus on collections.
  • How investor sentiment has historically impacted commercial real estate during a recession.
  • What CrowdStreet is looking at when evaluating deal flow moving forward.

The panel also took questions live from the viewers and discussed concerns about liquidity, how REITs have been affected, what lenders are doing, and more.
