Next year, sellers will need to meet new real estate pricing expectations in the market. We are in the tenth year of a bull run, and pricing has continued to reach record levels. As a result, investment volumes have stabilized, but next year, Steve Jacobs of Ten-X Commercial expects pricing to decrease. When that happens, buyers will be lining up to purchase properties, driving investment volumes up.

“There is always a massive appetite for investors to purchase real estate, no matter where we are in our economy,” Jacobs, CEO of Ten-X, tells GlobeSt.com. “It is the dynamics that architect the behavior. In 2019, pricing has been very strong and interest rates have been very low. This year, I am seeing a big appetite in all sectors, and sellers are holding pretty strong on pricing. Going into 2020, I expect to see that same pattern of behavior, but a lot of economists are predicting a dip in the market. If we have a dip, sellers are going to have to lower their pricing expectations, and the buyers will be there.”
