1:20 PM - 1:40 PMKeynote Presentation
1:40 PM - 2:30 PMDistressed Property Outlook: The First Inning

The metrics keep ticking upward as more properties become distressed, yet this is just the first inning of a nine-inning game. With trillions of dollars of CMBS set to mature in the next few years, property owners are looking for ways to refinance or exit their investments, buyers are looking for the bottom on pricing and lenders are beginning to apply stricter underwriting even to healthy properties. Our panel of experts will provide their take on the market as 2024 segues into 2025.

2:30 PM - 2:45 PMNetworking Break
2:45 PM - 3:15 PMA Conversation with Fannie & Freddie: The GSEs Keep Going Strong

Agency loans through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac remain a steady source of financing for borrowers across the spectrum of residential property types. Hear from Fannie and Freddie on what they are seeing in the market, what deals are penciling, their outcome for the second half of 2024 and beyond, and more.

3:15 PM - 4:00 PMBuying, Selling and Everything in Between

CRE pricing is stabilizing, yet some sellers continue believing that their assets are worth more than recent comps. Meanwhile, some buyers continue to hesitate in the belief that the real bargains haven't hit the market yet. Find out how to get a realistic sense of property values, whether you're selling or buying, and what it takes to close on financing in the current environment. Hear from buyers, sellers, financiers, and mortgage brokers talk about what it takes to get a deal over the finish line today.

4:00 PM - 4:45 PMCrossing the Pond

The U.S. economy is powering the world’s economic growth, a fact that certainly incentivizes foreign investors to participate in this country’s real estate. However, it’s also marked by political uncertainty along with rising CRE distress, notably in office. What’s bringing overseas buyers to these shores: the attraction of a safe haven for their money or the prospect of finding bargains? Our panel of experts will provide candid insights on foreign investment in U.S. properties.
