Commercial real estate (CRE) executives who responded to a recent annual real estate market sentiment survey are optimistic about investment opportunities in 2022 despite inflation and rising costs (for further information see "Outlook for US real estate sector in 2022").

In this podcast, real estate partners James O'Brien, Christa Dommers and Ron Gart discuss key sentiments, including:

  • a generally optimistic outlook for the CRE industry in 2022, notwithstanding unease over deteriorating fundamentals;
  • concern over the impact of the work-from-home trend on company culture; and
  • scepticism about investing in the suburbs despite predicting a rough time ahead for the downtown office market.
