Real Estate in the “New” Old Normal

Over the past year, investors have been inundated with negative reports of elevated mortgage rates and empty office buildings, weighing on their sentiment toward real estate investing.

In fact, while some segments may look more attractive than others, valuations across the asset class have reset as rates have climbed higher, and investors searching for diversification, steady income, and inflation protection have an entirely new menu of opportunities to choose from.
