Elite Investors: Industrial and Multifamily are In, Net Lease is Out

NEW YORK, May 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- United Realty, a leading sponsor of commercial real estate alternative investment programs that includes the $1 billion United Realty Trust, released the results of the first-ever United Realty/Zogby Real Estate Confidence Index, which indicates a strong view of the U.S. commercial real estate market despite expectations for rising rates, as well as a preference toward adding industrial and multifamily and unloading net lease properties.  

United Realty / Zogby Real Estate Confidence Index

The United Realty/Zogby Real Estate Confidence Index is designed to provide an inside look at how major institutional and elite real estate investors view the market. 

Highlights of the Q1 2014 United Realty/Zogby Real Estate Confidence Index include:

  • 96 percent of respondents view the current market as somewhat or very attractive.
  • By a ratio of more than 4:1, respondents view the market as improving or staying the same over the next 12 months.
  • 81 percent of respondents anticipate a 50-200 basis point increase in the 10-Year Treasury rate over the next 12 months.
  • Industrial and multi-family are seen as most attractive sectors today and over the next 12 months.
  • Nearly one in five respondents plans to reduce net lease property holdings over the next 12 months.
  • Value-added and opportunistic properties are seen as more attractive than core properties over the next 12 months.
  • Demand for commercial properties will exceed supply, and availability of financing is expected to improve.

"Despite predictions of rising rates, United Realty sees strong investment opportunities in the coming year," said Jacob Frydman, Chairman and CEO of United Realty. "The survey indicates a preference for multi-family, a smart investment in a rising interest rate environment."

Compiled from interviews with select institutional and elite commercial real estate investors, the United Realty/Zogby Real Estate Confidence Index will be released quarterly to provide real estate professionals with a detailed look at their peers' investment confidence and expectations.

"United Realty is pleased to partner with Zogby Analytics to provide this new data to the real estate investment community," said Frydman.  "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."
