Commercial real estate is a critical part of an economy, and shifts in its valuations can have outsized impacts on business cycles. The World Economic Forum has created an early warning system to predict declines in the prices of commercial properties in 10 US cities. The model, once rolled out to more markets and assets, could help participants better manage their investments and mitigate losses associated with a downturn. This informative report provides a good overview of the drivers of the US commercial property market. getAbstract recommends this detailed description of an innovative forecasting tool to policy makers and real estate investors.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why changes in commercial real estate markets affect participants and the broader economy,
- How an early warning system could alert investors to an impending downturn in prices, and
- What other factors influence commercial property prices.
