Multifamily buyers look for more product to come to market over the next year as struggling property owners unload assets.

Apartment deals aren’t for the fainthearted these days. Escalating costs amplified by unrealistic rent expectations are dragging some buyer’s bottom line down like anvils. So they sell, or foreclose.

Coming down the pike, expect more distressed sellers, some with the willingness, or need, to be creative in their financing. This coupled with low interest rates, gives anyone with money sitting on the sideline a great opportunity to buy.

Of course, I don’t know, but, as my wife frequently points out, that has never stopped me in the past. Here goes, for us to see significant improvement, retailers need to put themselves in a position for recovery, the economy needs to see some broader improvement, and consumer confidence needs to rebound.

Let’s talk about retailers first.

While it is true the economy has seen better days plenty of opportunities for local tenants still exist.  The current climate of the commercial real estate market has created one of the strongest tenant markets in history.  One of the most significant bedmond-plaza-flyery-products of the market slowdown has been the downward pressure on rental rates.

In almost every market, rents have softened creating some of the best opportunities for tenants to lock in generous lease terms.  For example, much activity has taken place at Edmond Plaza located in Edmond at 15th & Broadway.
