For the first time, there is more money in real estate than ever before, introducing new challenges to keep up to demand. More foreign capital is flowing into US real estate, bringing the industry to a peak pricing environment and pushing investors into new markets daily. With pricing reaching an all-time high in a deal-drought environment, coupled with global market volatility, investors and developers are skittish in where to put their dry powder, pushing private equity professionals to new, niche areas of real estate that haven’t previously been explored.
As the industry emerges from a low interest rate environment, and into a rapidly changing landscape with lower taxes, less regulations, higher rates and higher inflation, what does this mean for private equity real estate? What are the best ways to take advantage of the opportunities in the market today? And what are the risks that investors could encounter along the way?
These are some of the thought-provoking questions that will be addressed through a variety of formats at iGlobal Forum’s flagship event 17th Real Estate Private Equity Summit West (February 21-22nd, Los Angeles, CA).
