NEW YORK, Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- United Realty, a leading sponsor of commercial real estate alternative investment programs that includes the $1 billion United Realty Trust REIT, released the results of the Q2 2014 United Realty/Zogby Real Estate Confidence Index, which indicates continued strength in the commercial real estate market and a growing preference for value-added and opportunistic properties as interest rates are expected to rise.
The United Realty/Zogby Real Estate Confidence Index is designed to provide an inside look at how major institutional and elite commercial real estate investors view the market.
Highlights of the Q2 2014 United Realty/Zogby Real Estate Confidence Index include:
- 94 percent of respondents view the current market as somewhat or very attractive.
- 87 percent of respondents view the market as improving or staying the same over the next 12 months.
- 60 percent of respondents anticipate a 50-200 basis point increase in the 10-Year Treasury rate over the next 12 months.
- 37 percent of respondents expect capitalization rates to increase between 50-150 basis points over the next 12 months.
- Multi-family, medical and industrial are seen as most attractive sectors today and over the next 12 months.
- Value-added and opportunistic properties are seen as more attractive than core properties over the next 12 months.
"When interest rates increase, as predicted by our survey respondents, inflation-protected properties should perform well," said Jacob Frydman, Chairman and CEO of United Realty. "The Unity Realty/Zogby Index reflects the expectation that opportunistic and value added assets will outperform core holdings in a rising rate environment."
Compiled from interviews with select institutional and elite commercial real estate investors, the United Realty/Zogby Real Estate Confidence Index is released quarterly to provide real estate and financial services professionals with a detailed look at the expectations and confidence of commercial real estate investing leaders.
