REAL ESTATE MEGA TRENDS

MEGA TRENDS


TRENDS

These mega trends expand the universe of economic opportunity – through greater connectivity, population shifts and innovation.

GLOBALIZATION: The globalization of real estate information, services and know-how is increasing market scale and facilitating the flow of capital. Given the fixed nature of commercial real estate, while globalization represents opportunity, it does not substitute the strong local knowledge for becoming a successful commercial real estate investor.

DEMOGRAPHY: Aging populations and changing location preferences among younger workers have an impact on commercial real estate at both global and local levels. Millennials are changing the workplace and consumption patterns by re-urbanizing cities. The world is expected to gain one billion people in the coming decade, and most of them will live in cities. These urban areas have reemerged as centers of entrepreneurship and innovation, serving as the preferred habitat of the “creative class”.

TECHNOLOGY: The major changes outside the four walls of an office that primarily impact commercial real estate are tech talent, e-commerce and autonomous transportation. Companies will increasingly look for specific sets of skills as drivers for entering or expanding markets. E-commerce has created the need of small distribution centers close to the city for the last mile logistics.
