Historically, most real estate recoveries tend to last for approximately seven years. Mon, 22 Jan 2018 00:00:00 -0800 Looking Good for 2018A lot has happened in a year. Our forecast article for retail in 2017 indicated that the fundamentals of a good economic recovery in the U.S. retail sector had taken root and retail was well positioned. However, there was also reason to be cautious, due to the recent U.S. election of President Trump, the uncertainties of his policies and the change of government.Mon, 22 Jan 2018 00:00:00 -0800
