Just recently, Urban Land Institute and PricewaterhouseCoopers released their comprehensive 79-page report on the Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2011. To read the full report, click here

Highlights of the report include:

  • Industry showing signs of improvement, but unemployment, declining wages, and apprehensive lenders continue to restrict a steady rebound.

  • An increase in outsourcing and continued technological advances eliminates some need for new office or industrial space, contributing to the halt in new development.

  • Investors flush with cash will continue to have ample opportunities to obtain struggling or foreclosed assets.

  • Multifamily assets are easily the most sought after investments, with most office complexes lagging the further behind.

  • Indianapolis ranks as one of the top midwest Markets to Watch for Commercial/Multifamily Investment in 2011. However, the outlook for the midwest is well behind the coastal regions.
