What's happening with cap rates?

Where are cap rates trending? These questions echo consistently in discussions throughout the commercial real estate industry, gaining heightened importance during periods of market uncertainty. It's a query on everyone's mind, as individuals seek insights into the prevailing investment trends. However, answering this question isn't always straightforward, particularly amid a scarcity of recent investment trades. Professional valuations take on increased importance, and so does investor sentiment.

“The market is adjusting faster than anticipated while buyers and sellers are clearly adjusting to the reality of higher interest rates. This is evidenced by the larger than anticipated volume of office transactions across the country in Q1 2024.”
