    Commercial Real Estate Firms Beginning to Implement Lessons from COVID-19 Crisis

    Commercial Real Estate Firms Beginning to Implement Lessons from COVID-19 Crisis

    Commercial real estate firms are beginning to implement lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and create targeted measures to emerge stronger in the medium-term, according to Jim Berry, U.S. real estate leader at Deloitte & Touche LLP.

    Speaking on the Nareit REIT Report podcast, Berry noted that the industry has moved from an initial ‘respond’ phase into a ‘recover’ phase, with many commercial real estate executives now focused on issues such as preparing for re-entry to physical spaces and promoting employee and tenant wellbeing. Executives are also looking at what worked well in the early stages of the crisis and what needs to be improved upon, he said.

    Data Show April Online Retail Sales Gains Unable to Offset Broader Declines

    Data Show April Online Retail Sales Gains Unable to Offset Broader Declines

    The latest retail sales data point to a continued role for brick and mortar retail once the coronavirus crisis passes, according to Nareit Senior Economist Calvin Schnure.

    Speaking May 18 on the Nareit REIT Report podcast, Schnure noted that the more than 8% rise in non-store retail sales in April, which includes e-commerce, was unable to offset the overall decline of 16.4%.

    “Online commerce is still no substitute for a lot of the shopping that people do. So, even after this crisis passes, this tells us there’s still a strong role for brick and mortar retail sales,” Schnure said.

    REIT Industry’s Focus on Tenant Needs Seen as Key Issue Post-Crisis

    REIT Industry’s Focus on Tenant Needs Seen as Key Issue Post-Crisis

    The REIT industry’s focus on the needs and concerns of its tenants will become increasingly important as a result of the coronavirus crisis, according to Gil Menna, co-chair of the REITs and Real Estate M&A practice at Goodwin.

    Speaking on the Nareit REIT Report podcast, Menna said one of the ways that REITs can be opportunistic in the current environment is by focusing on unique ways to deal with tenancy concerns that evolve from the pandemic.

    “Trying to attract tenants back to [real estate] space, using the space in a way that’s novel and useful to tenants to addresses their needs and concerns—and helping them psychologically become productive again—will be an important part of the opportunity set available to REITs,” Menna said.

    April Jobs Report Shows Bulk of Losses in Front-Line Sectors

    April Jobs Report Shows Bulk of Losses in Front-Line Sectors

    Nareit Senior Economist Calvin Schnure said that while the April jobs report was “clearly a shock to the economy,” the bulk of job losses were confined to a few sectors facing complete shutdowns.

    In the May 11 edition of the REIT Report, Schnure noted that the April report showed a record decline in employment while the unemployment rate jumped to 14.7%, the highest level since the Great Depression. However, the data are “less alarming than we might have expected,“ Schnure said. He noted that 60% of the job losses were in sectors such as restaurants, doctors’ offices, and retail—which may be in a position to rehire at a later date.

    Speaking May 4 on the Nareit REIT Report, Schnure pointed to the various new safety measures that Simon Property Group, Inc. (NYSE: SPG) has implemented in order to reopen some of its malls.

    “The retail sector and the shopping malls are not isolated, they’re just the first part of our economy that’s going to be dealing with a post-COVID world. They are pioneering the way so that people can interact safely together,” Schnure said.

Sound Quality

The materials covered along with guests are great, but the quality of voice is low. I think they can fix that easily with a better recording system.

Docs man ,

I have become EXTREMELY interested in REITs. I like the cash flow and liquidity aspect.

It seems like the show is new...keep it going.

Glad to be your first review:)
