Market Trends



According to the Counselors of Real Estate, economic uncertainty and home affordability are the issues facing the real estate market. Every Year CRE surveys about 1000 experts in real estate to determine issues that have an impact on the housing sector in the commercial market. As the economy and innovation evolve to impact the market, the past year was challenging and opportunistic. Infrastructure issues and housing shortage issues cause disruption. Therefore next year will be crucial for the real estate market. These disruptions are the developing solution. We’ll look into the issues affecting the real estate market.

Roadblocks In the real estate

Global economy and political unrest

The real estate market faces a sagging office sector inflamed by inflation, the slowest GDP growth, and a high rate of interest which involves Russia, China, and others. The CRE report cautions, “We still have mixed macroeconomic signals in the economy, which contributes to an overarching uncertainty on where things are headed.” As the real estate industry navigates key decisions and evaluates strategies, it is difficult to face the realities. On the local landscape, the report calls for a micro-focused lens, since opportunities vary from market to market.

Shortage on housing

The U. S. faces housing shortages which were pinned on decades of underbuilding. The housing deficit at 5.5 million units was researched by the National Association of Realtors and Rosen Consulting. High interest rates complicate calls for multifamily units. Even the single-family homes face higher costs. The report noted that the imbalance between supply and demand contributed to a huge run-up in home prices.

Shortage on labor

Finding skilled laborers is a challenge for various industries. New employment emerged among young professionals, and the population of baby boomers who left the workforce is the reason for the labor shortage. The market on labor has a downstream implication on real estate. Jobs driving demand for real estate and population shift to jobs located. Youngsters choose for the lifestyle first and jobs second. This forces employers to migrate shifts.

Supply chain and logistic

The pandemic uncovered the supply chain; companies now network routes of the supply chain. The report noted, “The heart of America’s logistics infrastructure lies in the Golden Triangle.” This highlights the interior section of the country. The remake of the supply chain coincides with manufacturing and growth focuses on interior and southern states. The drivers for new supply chain access growing workforce and infrastructure such as roads, rail, and ports.


The reason for migration away is housing affordability in urban areas. U-Haul’s Growth Index shows moves over the year in places like Ocala, Auburn, Madison, and Myrtle Beach, which are the migration patterns. That shift implies the real estate industry in growth opportunities and challenges for property valuation and obsolescence created in areas where the population declines.

Artificial Intelligence

Accessing real-time data, forecasting and improved analytics become difficult for investors. This is because they weigh properties they want to acquire, sell, or hold. Artificial Intelligence helps in delivering data, and recent advancements that include ChatGPT applied to real estate. The big innovations in real estate will not come from ChatGPT but from large prop-tech reimaging data collection. To think about the future they incorporate data and adopt the framework.

Influence of Hybrid Work

To bring the workers back employers recognize that the space in an office needs to become “destination-worthy.” This includes hosting special events with food trucks. This coincides with creating patios and outdoor seating to help with employee retention. If that does not check critical ways- convenience, location, access, or amazing view- owners think about alternative strategies. In some cases, explore the reuse of obsolete office buildings as conversation into senior housing, health care facilities, residential units, or hotels.

Pricing reset

As the cost of capital increases, property values and cap rates decrease. The pricing reset market waiting for slow to materialize. A hurdle is that buyers and sellers are still in a standoff. Sellers hold for values close to achievable before interest rate explosion.
