  • 4. Finding the Best Markets for Your Investment Criteria
    Where are you on the risk-return spectrum?
    Want high return?
    You’ll need to look in the “bubble markets”!
    Miami, AZ, Las Vegas, California
    If you are content with a more modest return, and seek to avoid a falling knife, you can consider some non-bubble markets

    Unlike the housing meltdown, this crisis is likely to hit smaller banks the hardest.
    The four largest U.S. banks have an average exposure of 2 per cent to commercial real estate.
    The 30 to 100 largest banks have an average 12-per-cent exposure.

  • 25. FORECAST FOR DEFAULTS AND BANKRUPTCIES
    Debt defaults increase at double-digit rate next 24 months
    160 to 190 defaults in 2009
    B/n 120 and 140 in 2010
    Typically, 2 out of 3 to 3 out of 4 defaults end in bankruptcies within 3 months.
    Thus, we are looking at:
    150 bankruptcies in 2009 and
    100 in 2010. according to a bi-annual study in November 2008 by Bain Corporate Renewal Group.

    The epicenter of the commercial real estate crisis is New York, where nearly $8-billion worth of commercial properties – mainly office towers – are in various stages of financial distress.
    Many office towers with significant vacancies, in Manhattan and elsewhere, are being unloaded at “fire sale” discounts of up to 70%.

    Sales of limited service properties fell 77% from Q1’08 levels while full service properties have endured an 88% decline in sales volume.

  • 37. HOTELS
    Smaller deal size means smaller private players are dominating limited service hotel transaction activity and made up 69% of buyers for the past four quarters.
    Private investors also comprised 80% of sellers of limited service properties for the same period.
    Those investors most vulnerable to the freeze in capital markets, including REITs and other public companies, continue to be net sellers at a staggering 12:1 ratio.

  • 38. HOTELS
    Institutional and foreign players with a particular taste for full service assets have been net buyers by a ratio of over 3:2.
    As more hotel assets become distressed, these trends seem poised to continue; the big buyers of the boom will sell assets to meet obligations while institutions with strong balance sheets or smaller private players can take advantage of bargains.

  • 39. CONCLUSIONS
    No CMBS in 2009 YTD, and practically no debt available.
    What to CAP?  Trailing-12 makes no sense as NOI keeps falling. 
    Whose forecast do you use for your proforma? 
    Cap rates are rising but no one knows where they will stabilize.

  • 40. CONCLUSIONS CONT.-
    Buyers expect many foreclosures and bank REOs, and don’t want to overpay, so for the time being remain on sidelines
    Key markets need new price benchmarks to reset expectations.  Only then will buyers know their way.
    Buyers are assuming that when they do proceed, they need to be prepared to buy with all-equity. 
    Hence further upward pressure on Cap rates

  • 41. FINAL THOUGHTS
    Seller financing will be prevalent in transactions for the foreseeable future
    When debt starts coming available (who knows when?), it will be more costly
    Many groups have identified new equity sources, but not many transactions have closed so you must doubt whether they funded yet.

  • 43. Downward Pressure on New Home Prices
    1) Lack of mortgage financing,
    2) Job losses and lower incomes,
    3) Smaller houses with lower specifications,
    4) Need for many home buyers to sell another house before they buy, and
    5) Massive REO competition as the option- ARM recast wave hits next year.
    Plus, as Treasury rates rise, there will be further downward pressure.
