"Although a continuous flow of capital has kept the real estate industry stable overall, growth over the next year is likely to be more moderate compared to the robust levels of recent months, with much depending on what happens with a variety of factors such as consumer spending, energy prices, housing demand, job growth, corporate productivity gains and inflation, according to Emerging Trends in Real Estate® 2006, just released by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PWC)."
The terms used to described the general real estate trends are "moderate" to at worst "lackluster", but "not anything dire" and still a good investment when compared against stock and bonds in the near future
"Now in its 27th year, Emerging Trends examines the outlook for real estate capital markets and contains a comprehensive annual forecast for all categories of the commercial real estate industry, including apartments, regional malls, downtown offices, warehouses, community shopping centers, suburban offices, research and development space, power centers, full-service hotels and limited-service hotels. Since last year, the report also has started tracking trends in the housing industry."
It identifies current development patterns and metropolitan markets to watch. Its investment tips include “hold full-service hotels; sell or hold apartments; hold warehouses; sell commodity office; and sell retail.”
Emerging Trends looks at the major segments of commercial real estate, plus housing, and identifies strengths, weaknesses, "best bet" and provides an outlook.
