Video: Real Capital Analytics SVP Jim Costello Discusses Investing in Office 2019

Jim Costello, Senior Vice President at Real Capital Analytics, appears on this commercial property related show to discuss the office property sector, including performance, capitalization rates, and suburban markets. He notes that there are mixed signls in the office market. Activity grew in May as it fell for other sectors, including sectors considered more “hot” in this market. At the same time, there remain concerns about what happens with office space and what type of longevity the assets have. Also, he notes that pricing is a question – but then when is it not – with cap rates at historic lows. Year to date, he states that deal growth is down year over year, but deal growth rebounded in May. Cap rates he describes as essentially flat, of late. The discussion moves on to suburban office properties, noting that the suburban office market is heating up.
