RREEF Marks Up 2009 Commercial Real Estate Outlook

January 12, 2010

For the past few years, RREEF has revisited its commercial real estate outlook at the end of the year by marking up the document. It’s nice to see this type of self-deprecating research.

Like last year, RREEF was a bit too bullish and underestimated how much values and employment would fall.

The report can be downloaded here.

I have done a few deals with RREEF in Chicago and they are one of the better landlords in the business!

This is going to be a bad year for commercial real estate. The John R. Carlisle Institute has been leasing space but I think we finally buy a building this year since there will be so many deals. The good ones are starting to bubble up finally. At first they held tight but the banks have started taking stuff back here in Seattle now.

A very interesting approach that lends great credibility to RREEF. In my 60 years of real estate practice this is a first where a major player takes a critical look back at what they said. I wonder what would happen if analysts pulled out their DCF models going back 5 years and esxamined them today in the light of the current real estate economy. The current market makes it very difficult to appraise anything with a high degree of confidence in the result.
