Industry Pulse: HRE Execs See Another Good Year Ahead, Unless…

Unforeseen domestic or foreign events are among the few concerns of sector experts.

Like most of the other Healthcare Real Estate Insights™ Editorial Advisory Board members, Mindy Berman and Chris Bodnar say they believe that 2015 will be a good year, barring any unforeseen events that could disrupt the domestic economy, or further dampen economies throughout the world.

“(This) year I think we’re all going to come back here in this same happy position, people having done a lot of business and feeling very good on all fronts,” Ms. Berman, managing director in JLL’s Capital Markets group, said at our recent board meeting. “At the same time, however, I think we have to be careful to look out on the horizon at things that are sneaking up behind us.”

One of those things is that international investors and sovereign funds are looking to the United States as a “defensive” place to put their capital because growth is so “anemic” in other world markets, she said.

The “U.S. has a huge target on its back because of anemic growth in other markets, including Europe,” agreed Mr. Bodnar, a senior VP and co-leader of the national Healthcare Capital Markets Group with CBRE Group.
