PROJECT UPDATE – November 2016
A number of hot button issues dominated the 16th annual Trigild Lender Conference last week – historically low interest rates, homeownership shifts, global volatility, the oil market slump and a growing political divide to name a few – but despite the headwinds, one thing remained clear: the U.S. commercial real estate market and overall economy remain relatively healthy, at least in the short term.
