Chicago Federal Reserve Real Estate Outlook

May 22, 2024 | Virtual

Hosted by ABI's Real Estate Committee

Commercial real estate continues to be top of mind for restructuring professionals nationwide, as Federal Reserve interest rate policy to curb inflation is impacting values at the same time as rapid changes in supply and demand within several asset classes have taken hold. ABI's Real Estate Committee is honored to host a commercial real estate economic outlook presentation featuring Martin Lavelle, senior business economist with the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, to provide important market intelligence. Lavelle’s research topics include construction and real estate, consumer spending, rural economic development and more. He is heavily involved in the formulation of the Chicago Fed’s Beige Book submission by moderating roundtables of key business contacts and regional stakeholders.

This program will cover such key questions as which markets appear to be under the greatest pressure, the status of the return-to-office environment and key indicators to watch as this sector evolves, what is going on in other major asset sectors, whether construction prices are subsiding, what the general sense is about the enormous amount of near-term debt maturity in light of market values, and whether there is stress on the community banking system given higher concentrations of real estate lending. The webinar will include time for Q&A.
