Are You Ready for Some Good News?

Found via Sibdu.

Last week I wrote about the state of commercial real estate in the US and posted a video featuring Richard Lefrak. This week, another take on the situation in the US with a much more positive spin.

William Rudin, of Rudin Management, has a very upbeat and positive position as it relates to the future of commercial real estate. While he agrees that not all of the pain has been felt yet in terms of pricing corrections, he is seeing signs of renewed strength in the market. His firm is doing a lot of new leasing and is seeing a fair amount of sub-let space being taken off the market as firms move back into space that they had formerly vacated.

Here in Peterborough and central Ontario, we're seeing a fair bit of renewed energy in the market too as investors who had been sitting on the sidelines get back into the game. New money is coming into the market from outside as well; we're getting calls from the GTA and elsewhere inquiring about development opportunities again.

The good times aren't back yet, and likely we won't see a boom again for a while, but it looks like the worst might just be behind us.
