Real estate investors are becoming increasingly cautious due to concerns over political uncertainty, trade wars and slowing economic growth in key markets across the world, according to the 2019 global edition of Emerging Trends in Real Estate®. The report notes that as investors are attempting to buttress against these headwinds, they are simultaneously overhauling traditional business and valuation models in response to changing consumer demands.

Despite nervousness surrounding the global economic outlook, interviewees suggest that there are still positive signs for real estate in 2019. They believe that the decision by the U.S. Federal Reserve to put interest rate rises on hold, along with lower levels of debt financing and lower property supplies in most markets worldwide (compared to the final stages of the last upcycle), will temper the effects of a slowdown.
