4th Asset Class: Real Estate

Real Estate as the fourth asset class is finally becoming a reality. Why is this important? Well, the amount of capital that has and will flow into our industry is astonishing. Billions of dollars, an additional $500 billion to be exact. This money will make our market more liquid, provide for stability in markets and will change the way properties are sold. Below is a great article describing the long climb the industry is making to be at the table with stocks and bonds.
 
I have highlighted some key thoughts but here are some items changing right now:
–Yield compression
–70% of institutions outsource the management of their real estate assets
–Prices are ahead of fundamentals
  
At Lee and Associates, we have been selling a number of big and small assets this year (Over $95 million already in 2015). If you want to talk more about this or the market, give me a call or email me.
