TAKEAWAYS – Life. Lessons. Learned.

No matter the industry, interest rates and inflation has been a challenge in the last few months. Both are increasing and the impacts on the southern Nevada commercial real estate market are tremendous. Just recently, the Federal Reserve raised the interest rate by .75 percent, which was the biggest single meeting increase in almost 30 years. That increase followed a rate jump of .25 in March and another of .50 in May.

The panel for the June NAIOP breakfast consisted of experts in office, industrial and retail investment sales, and capital markets. They provided a comprehensive overview of how interest rates and inflation are affecting current deals in this market and they offered insights as to what the next year or so might bring.
