Concerns about recent bank failures have led investors to watch the commercial real estate market. Small banks hold a relatively large share of commercial loans, and consecutive rate hikes by the Fed make it unlikely that those businesses will refinance given the high rate environment. Meanwhile, flexible work arrangements are also lending to declining occupancy rates among many businesses. In an interview with Yahoo Finance's Rachelle Akuffo, Marcus & Millichap CEO Hessam Nadji said, "The hybrid work environment and the reduced footprint in office buildings is a major concern." Nadji says we're currently seeing the worst of the office decline, noting that, "in the next two to five years, you're going to see much more return to the office. It won't be pre-pandemic levels. I think there is a structural and permanent reduction of office space needs." Watch our full conversation with Hessam Nadji here.

The commercial real estate sector has been under a microscope following the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank. A new report from Moody’s explains why banking turmoil mixed with rising interest rates could lead to vulnerability. Moody’s Analytics Head of CRE Economic Analysis Kevin Fagan told Yahoo Finance Live that despite concerns surrounding office buildings, he’s focused on another space. “It’s malls that really have experienced the most pain. They’re going through a real reinvention, akin to what some offices are going to have to go through,” he says. Despite a difficult post-pandemic stretch, Fagan says that hotels are "one of the only positive stories right now.” “They’ve really ridden the wave of revenge travel,” he adds, but warns that a bumpy ride could still be ahead. “If the economy turns down, don’t be surprised if hotel does as well,” he explains.

Despite 2022 proving to be a difficult home-buying environment, demand still remains high as home prices fell for the seventh straight month in January. Century 21 CEO Michael Miedler told Yahoo Finance Live that there has been a shift in regionality as prospective buyers look for the best deals. "We've seen the south, especially states like Texas and like Florida really being drivers," he says. "Just this last month, it's really been the northeast who's been holding steady and increasing from an overall housing perspective," he continues. Miedler adds that the serious buyers are seeing "a little bit less competition" at current mortgage rates, but the biggest issue he forecasts is inventory. "We're under about three months of inventory when a normal market is about six months," he explains. You can watch Brad Smith and Jared Blikre's full interview with Michael Miedler here.
