Industrial Real Estate’s Place In A Post-Pandemic Economy

AVP Leasing, Simone Development Companies.

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, a swirling vortex of information and theories of the long-term effects on commercial real estate spread far and wide. Many experts are reporting their predictions for the new normal. National commercial brokerage teams are scrambling to adjust by assembling top talent to sponsor Covid-19 advisory services for office tenants and landlords as office utilization and availability rates increased sharply. Suggested actions like this, as well as theories and predictions, are endlessly blanketing the real estate news reports, but a big story often missed is the surge of demand for warehouse properties and industrial sites. They are being acquired at a growing rate by developers and tenants everywhere, with projections showing continued growth. It appears a new king of the hill has emerged, industrial warehousing.

Easy money for the economy pushed house prices higher: Morgan Stanley

  • The stream of stimulus to prop up economic growth this year has unintentionally led to a sharp rise in house prices worldwide, Morgan Stanley’s Ruchir Sharma wrote in a New York Times opinion piece.
  • Surging home prices have been led by increases in value of other assets like stocks and bonds, which has pushed investors to evaluate their options.
  • Mortgage lending rates have fallen to record lows as central banks flooded money into credit markets. That induced investors to cash in on cheaper loans, driving up home demand, the strategist pointed out.
  • “The risk going forward is that the boom will leave more people unable to afford a home and that prices will eventually reach dangerous bubble levels,” he said.

Opinion | The Economy Is Down. Why Are Home Prices Up?

Going back at least to the 1970s, housing had always slumped during recessions, both in the United States and worldwide. People lose jobs and stop dreaming of bigger homes. But in the second quarter this year, amid the worst global recession since the 1940s, housing prices were up a robust 4 percent worldwide, and that was before the boom really took off. Since May, new-home sales in the United States have climbed by 67 percent, and prices by 15 percent. The median price of existing homes in the United States recently passed $300,000 for the first time.

This surreal “boom in the gloom” is a government creation. As central banks flooded money into the credit markets, rates on 30-year mortgages, which had been falling for years, plummeted to record lows — under 3 percent in the United States and under 2 percent in Europe. If you are dreaming of riding

Rollercoaster economy makes Edmonton affordable for first-time buyers

Driving national averages upward are the traditionally high-priced markets in B.C.’s Lower Mainland, Victoria, and Toronto with its surrounding areas. For example, the Fraser Valley saw apartment condo prices rise over the five-year span by 104 per cent to $437,300 on average. And in the Niagara Region, the benchmark single-family home price rose by 95 per cent over the last five years, or a $239,300 jump in value.

That’s the highest among the segment nationally. In Alberta, Calgary has experienced a similar fate to Edmonton, Haw says.

“Unfortunately, it’s been a rollercoaster in the last decade,” she says about both markets, which were among the hottest in the nation when oil prices were around $100 US a barrel up to the third quarter of 2014.

Both markets, she adds, were showing signs of recovery at the start of the year. Then came COVID-19.

“COVID, unfortunately, pushed Alberta

Florida’s economy regained ground over the summer as businesses reopened and rehired. But it has hardly returned to its robust pre-pandemic state.

With days to go before the national election, the economic fallout from business shutdowns aimed at halting the spread of COVID-19 remains a central focus of the national debate.

While the early months of the pandemic were characterized by widespread unemployment, plummeting tourism and spiking delinquencies on power bills and mortgages, late summer and early fall saw a smoothing out of those numbers.

The result is what economists are calling a “partial recovery.”

Retail spending made gains over the past few months, and

The Sunshine Economy: Race, Real Estate And A Recovery

Don Peebles had never seen a real estate deal that required a Black developer before he came to Miami Beach in the mid-1990s. He already was a successful and wealthy developer in Washington D.C. He was familiar with projects that were geared toward women and minority developers, but one that specifically called for a Black developer — that was a first.

“I thought, ‘Wow, what could they have possibly done to make things so bad that they need to do this?'” he said.

Shocking new rates for homeowners insurance threaten Florida’s economy

Florida homeowners, already facing an anxious few months because of the COVID-19 pandemic, face a new threat — the prospect of major cost increases for property insurance.

As the Sun Sentinel reported Sunday, the increases could range from 30% to 40%. They would come just as Gov. Ron DeSantis has ended the moratorium on mortgage foreclosures. It also seems likely that Senate Republicans won’t pass a second COVID-19 stimulus bill that could help laid-off homeowners pay their insurance premiums.

How will the Florida Legislature respond? If history is a guide, the priority will be to please the insurance industry, not policyholders.

That’s because we have been here before — after Hurricane Andrew in 1992 and after the active hurricane seasons of 2004 and 2005, which culminated in Hurricane Wilma. Now we are here after Hurricane Irma in 2017 and Hurricane Michael in 2018, even though neither storm made a direct
