Colliers Analysis: Ten Predictions for 2012

by CoyDavidson on January 26, 2012

We asked our researchers to make some big predictions for 2012. In short, we’re expecting something of a mixed bag this year. Look for modest U.S. economic growth, modest office and industrial absorption and a big bump in property investment volumes.

  • Quality warehouse properties will be the new investment star of the year
  • U.S. GDP will grow by no more than 2%
  • As U.S. ethanol subsidies expire, corn prices will drop along with overall food prices
  • Residential property values will bottom out
  • Investment transaction volumes will grow
