It’s supposedly a simple, straightforward sector. It’s an asset class that delivers income and some appreciation in property values. And it’s an overall safe investment. Yet beneath the surface, the industry is transforming in many ways. Players rise and fall. New tactics emerge. The use of technology can affect funding and financing. In other words, there are always disruptions taking place. Here we profile 10 disrupters (actually 11, since one profile is of the two principals of one firm).hese disrupters include some familiar names and some new ones. They underscore key trends—urbanization of retail, crowdfunding, microapartments and the reemergence of CMBS, to name a few. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nreionline.com/people/10-disrupters-individuals-who-are-charting-future-commercial-real-estate" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://nreionline.com/people/10-disrupters-individuals-who-are-charting-future-commercial-real-estate#comments Brokerage CMBS Development Finance & Investment Medical Office Multifamily News Office People Retail West Mobile Alert Fri, 18 Jul 2014 14:10:00 +0000 1039071 at http://nreionline.com Sales Surge on European NPLs http://nreionline.com/private-equity/sales-surge-european-npls <div class="node-body article-body"><div></div>Forget Wimbledon and tourist attractions such as the Roman Coliseum, U.S. investors are flocking to Europe to pursue lucrative opportunities in the non-performing loan (NPL) market.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nreionline.com/private-equity/sales-surge-european-npls" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://nreionline.com/private-equity/sales-surge-european-npls#comments Brokerage Distress International News Private Equity Freemium Tue, 15 Jul 2014 18:54:00 +0000 1036221 at http://nreionline.com Appetite for M&A in Global CRE Sector Continues http://nreionline.com/brokerage/appetite-ma-global-cre-sector-continues <div class="node-body article-body"><div></div>Mergers and acquisitions activity has been gaining momentum across the broader commercial real estate industry as firms refocus efforts on expansion in the recovering economy. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nreionline.com/brokerage/appetite-ma-global-cre-sector-continues" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://nreionline.com/brokerage/appetite-ma-global-cre-sector-continues#comments Brokerage Finance & Investment International News Freemium Mon, 16 Jun 2014 19:43:00 +0000 950621 at http://nreionline.com Global Upgrade: Access To Talent Now Trumps Cost For Tech Outsourcing http://nreionline.com/brokerage/global-upgrade-access-talent-now-trumps-cost-tech-outsourcing <div class="field-byline"> Shannon Curley </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><div></div>Access to talent is outweighing cost when it comes to location strategy in the global software development sector, according to JLL analysis of foreign direct investment (FDI). </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://nreionline.com/brokerage/global-upgrade-access-talent-now-trumps-cost-tech-outsourcing" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Brokerage Leasing News Office Viewpoints Freemium Mon, 02 Jun 2014 18:19:00 +0000 835611 at http://nreionline.com Expectations Run High for RECon 2014, Focus Switches to Global Marketplace http://nreionline.com/retail/expectations-run-high-recon-2014-focus-switches-global-marketplace <div class="node-body article-body"><div></div>Leasing and investment sales professionals expect to see record performance and a renewed interest in retail properties from both tenants and investors.
