We share our views for what we expect to see across property types over the next 18 months, and in some cases beyond, as we peek through the looking glass into the world of real estate.  As fundamentals are expected to tighten across most sectors in a growing number of markets nationally, we aim to identify shifts that should be on the radar and help to provide more clarity for the real estate investor.  For the multifamily sector, strong absorption continues, while an uptick in deliveries is expected to drive vacancy increases across varying markets.  Cashed-up private equity groups will continue to invest heavily in select service hotel portfolios, and office investment sale activity is expected to grow in select core suburban areas.  Within the industrial sector, leasing market laggards are to be considered prime for value-add buyers; and we can expect the concept of clicks-to-bricks to emerge within retail.  Read more in our latest Cross Sector Outlook report, where we also put the spotlight on New York City and other viable markets poised for growth
