Sponsor of commercial real estate alternative investment programs, United Realty, has teamed up with Zogby Analytics to create the United Realty/Zogby Real Estate Confidence Index. The index is a quarterly survey of institutional and elite commercial real estate investors designed to provide information on trends and outlooks in commercial real estate investing.
“United Realty is pleased to partner with Zogby Analytics to provide this new data to the real estate investment community,” said Jacob Frydman, Chairman and CEO of United Realty. “We believe that the United Realty/Zogby Real Estate Confidence Index provides a unique insight into the minds of elite real estate investors and will help managers and advisors make more informed investment decisions.”
The QI 2014 report indicates an overall strong outlook for the market, with 96% of respondents viewing the current market as somewhat or very attractive. In addition, the findings show that a significant percentage of respondents plan to increase their multifamily and industrial holdings while decreasing their net-lease holdings.
The survey suggests a great deal of optimism within the industry, while at the same time indicating a belief that interest rates and capitalization rates will rise in the next year. It also shows that value-added and opportunistic properties are seen as more attractive than core properties for the next 12 months.
“Despite predictions of rising rates, United Realty sees strong investment opportunities in the coming year,” said Mr. Frydman.
The index hopes to help investors make better informed decisions for current property holdings and future decisions.
