It’s been about four years since the crash in the real estate markets. During that time, many cities have suffered from decreasing occupancy, rental rates, and property values. In addition, building owners and lenders have had to undertake work-outs on over a trillion dollars worth of distressed properties. As a result, we’ve seen an economy that has been buoyed by low interest rates but with more stringent underwriting standards, limited job growth, and public policy uncertainty. Is all that about to change?
