Good reads – CRE news from the week of January 6, 2014


The WSJ reports that the office rental market is getting stronger, Mack-Cali has gone “all-in” on residential real estate and backing away from their traditional investments in office buildings, and a flood of debt secured by commercial real estate investment may provide opportunities for aggressive lenders.

The Journal also had an interesting piece on how technology companies are trying to change how corporate real estate brokers conduct business in the future and Gunnar Branson has some interesting ideas about the evolution of how we will use real estate into the future.

Finally, people seem to be leaving New Jersey according to surveys conducted by United Van Lines.
