    • 2. OPPORTUNITIES PANEL
      Among the questions to be discussed:
      Opportunities currently available;
      Opportunities that will be available;
      How to source, underwrite and execute.
      Where is capital coming from?
      Panelists:Scott L. Podvin, Managing Director, The Crest At Waterford Lakes, LLCGentry Hoit, Atlantic Assets Group
      Cia Buckley, Dune Capital
      Jonathan G. Davis, The Davis Companies
    • 3. Markets With Best Investment Potential
      • What is your investment horizon? (5 years, 8 years?)
      • Are you IRR-driven?
      • These are the characteristics to look for in a target market:
      Strong long-term high-wage job potential
      Deep discounts
      Finished, vacant to decline
      Long-term land/VDL constraints
      In-migration (demand) potential

    • 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

      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%.

      Prices for office towers and shopping centers are already down 35 to 45% from their peak in 2007, and further declines are likely, Mr. Parkus from Deutsche Bank said.
      That compares with a 32% peak-to-trough decline for house prices, according to the Case-Shiller home price index.

      Per-unit pricing declined with the drop-off in volume as full and limited service hotels were down 1% and 4% YOY, respectively.
      Pricing for the top 25% of assets also fell to $169k/key at a 7.5% cap rate further underlining the particular strain on the typically higher-priced full service market.

    • 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.

    • 42. SALES VOLUME FALLS OFF A CLIFF
      Sales volume has fallen with uncanny consistency by 71% over the past twelve months as investor appetites have subsided in equal measure across the property spectrum.

    • 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.
