June 2019 Economic Outlook


While the forecast of 2019 likely escaping a recession is not much changed, commercial real estate, having enjoyed a decade long expansion since the financial crisis, is headed for a "crunch" with increasing supply coming from the flow of investment dollars searching for yield encountering a slowing increase in employment growth (from 200,000 down to 100,000 jobs a month). The panel will also discuss the potential impact of the proposed rent control legislation and split roll property tax proposals.

Key Topics
  • Did the first quarter stock market rebound signal an "all clear" for the economy?
  • Will the recent drop in interest rates trigger a surge in housing activity?
  • How will commercial real estate fare in a slower growth economy?
