COVID Vaccine Roll Out Portends Swifter Economic Recovery for CRE by Christopher Sanz, JD, LLM

Posted on February 17, 2021

The sudden uncertainty created by the pandemic in early 2020 negatively impacted all aspects of the economy through the end of the year (and will likely continue through some of 2021). Now, however, with the nationwide distribution of FDA-approved emergency-use COVID-19 vaccines significant there is great promise that the economy, and commercial real estate, in particular, can recover fairly quickly rather than continuing to struggle over a longer period of time.

This is especially true as liquidity continues to free up and interest rates remain at record lows. In the current environment, well-funded investors are finding unique buying opportunities, including sale leasebacks that allow them to capitalize on the current market dynamics to yield short term cash flow and longer-term property appreciation. Yet, despite signs of economic recovery, patience will continue to be the most critical tool investors can wield in 2021.
