Even as new variants present new challenges, the commercial real estate sector in large part continues to adapt and prosper beyond the predictions at the beginning of the pandemic.

We and more specifically, the commercial estate investment sector, are not out of the woods, yet. COVID continues to rear its ugly head and presents hurdles. The economy, regardless, will be impacted. This invariably has a negative impact in certain sectors of the commercial real estate industry. Companies are hesitant to completely send employees back to the office, lenders will tighten on concessions and there will have to be an adjustment on values.

However, for the asset classes that have been impacted the most severely, there is light on the horizon. There have been indicators to prove this as people move more freely around the country and back to the office.
