Investors Return to Real Estate

Commercial real estate, after a very long hiatus, is once again considered to be a solid investment opportunity according to the August edition of Transwestern’s monthly “The Briefing” report. To support this news, the Dow Jones US Real Estate Index, which includes realty, forestry, mortgage and REITs, has climbed 92% since early 2009… and that’s not all. According to the WSJ, the low-interest-rate environment in the REIT sector has resulted in real estate trusts as being one of the highest yielding investments possible. So what does it all mean? With investments and capital finding its way back into real estate, more projects and opportunities are sure to follow, which means only one thing… jobs! SelectLeaders is currently experiencing its strongest summer in recent memory and there is no sign of it slowing down, and with the hiring season right around the corner, it could be a very interesting fall.
