COVID-19 Crisis Presents Commercial Real Estate Buying Opportunities

Posted on July 02, 2020

Many parts of the commercial real estate sector are continuing to suffer amid the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, when taking a longer-term look at CRE investments, those with ample cash reserves have tremendous opportunities to take advantage of declining prices and scoop up distressed properties with strong fundamentals.

According to Real Capital Analytics, during the last financial crisis, commercial real estate prices fell by 35 percent within the first two years, and prices have more than doubled over the past decade. Private equity firms that successfully raised cash over this period are well-positioned to jump in now, ride out the storm as businesses reopen and benefit from the eventual rebound.
