Changing CRE investment strategies for 2019

California commercial real estate investors may want to consider modifying their strategies for staying on top of the market in 2019. While many investors may opt to continue to use what has worked for them in the past, others may have to use new methods to set up capital in order to address a volatile equity market, slow growth in the industry and trade disputes.

According to an investor based in Texas who has implemented a value-add investment plan in the office sector for the last 10 years, there is no need for new strategies. He states that even though the Texas market has softened slightly, it is still healthy, and there has been no substantive change in demand that requires doing something different.

However, one investment company employs a contrarian strategy. The company believes that because retail assets can be under-valued, buying in to retail is a wise move. The company is looking for an investment partner with whom it will acquire certain stakes across the country.

According to one research firm, the commercial real estate market has not had an ideal start in 2019, as the volume of investment sales was down in all sectors for the month of January. In that month, the growth of commercial property prices dropped to 5.8 percent year-over year, even as apartments showed notable improvement with an annual pace of growth rate of 8.8 percent.

An attorney who practices commercial real estate law may work to protect the rights and interests of clients during certain investment transactions. The attorney may negotiate favorable contract terms on behalf of clients and may litigate or negotiate to resolve contract disputes. Assistance may be provided for arranging funding from other investors or with securing management for certain types of commercial properties.
