Abstract: “So far, so good!” This statement is a simple, yet accurate summary of what is unfolding in the U.S. economy and commercial property market. Neither recession nor stagflation is probable; instead, evidence that we are in the early stages of a Fed-induced mid-recovery slowdown is gathering. Inflationary pressures are subsiding and, most important, commercial real estate fundamentals remain solid and improving across all property sectors.
