NABE Webinar with Jamie Woodwell and Richard Barkham
By Jamie Woodwell
April 20, 2020
Richard Barkham, Global Head of Research and Chief Economist at CBRE, and Jamie Woodwell, Vice President of Commercial Real Estate Research at MBA, discuss how the COVID-19 outbreak has had an immediate effect on commercial real estate fundamentals and capital market activity. The reduction in economic activity that followed social distancing, the sharp stock market drop, and mass layoffs has a direct impact on real estate occupancy, lending, valuations and investment. The panel will share their observations and outlooks across property types using a combination of high-frequency data from the commercial mortgage and leasing markets with the early observable impacts on Q1 2020 property performance.
