Maybe CRE Valuations Are Not As Bad As The Fed Says
WASHINGTON, DC–Last month the Federal Reserve Bank noted, again, that CRE valuations were inflated in its Monetary Policy report to Congress. It said:
Valuation pressures continue to be elevated across a range of asset classes, including equities and commercial real estate. Over the second half of 2017, valuation pressures edged up from already elevated levels. In general, valuations are higher than would be expected based solely on the current level of longer-term Treasury yields.
But a case can be made that valuations are not necessarily at peak pricing . That is, at least, Integra Realty Resources Chairman Anthony M. Graziano’s view of the market.
