The COVID-19 pandemic brought unexpected shifts in U.S. economic activity, including a sudden downturn and major decline in nominal GDP. While some parts of the economy recovered from the initial pandemic shock of first-quarter 2020, other sectors are struggling to get back on track.
The commercial real estate industry is seeing notable variation across property types and geographic locations, while overall performance is mixed across sectors as vacancy and occupancy rates fluctuate.
The CRE outlook for 2021 is uncertain due to continued pandemic risks, but the rollout of vaccines and the promise of additional fiscal stimulus are bright spots on the horizon. With political uncertainty easing and efforts to boost the U.S. economy underway, the recovery will affect demand across the real estate industry.
