Expectations & Market Realities in Real Estate: 2004

“The blending of these sources of information, and of the brain power of these three groups of experts with different perspectives has produced a forecast superior to those that any one approach could arrive at by itself.”

-Anthony Downs, Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution

Expectations & Market Realities in Real Estate: 2004, the annual forecast report for real estate investment produced by RERC, Torto Wheaton Research, and Principal Real Estate Investors, is available now by hard copy.

Unlike other real estate forecast reports, Expectations & Market Realities in Real Estate: 2004 pulls together the collective expertise offered by these three organizations as it relates to the quantitative, or analytic, research models available today, and the qualitative, or practical, view of real estate investment in our current market. Specifically, the 90-plus-page report “makes the connection” between the many interrelated cyclical and secular forces driving the real estate investment market.
