Article: Mike Buckingham: Ticket to Ride
It's a well-known fact among corporate real estate (CRE) professionals that many of the people in this line of work fell into it while en route to someplace else. For Mike Buckingham, that "someplace" was jail-almost. "My aspiration in high school was to find a career in law enforcement. After graduation I worked full-time as a small town police officer until I arrested the mayor's brother for driving under the influence around 3:00 in the morning. By 9:00 a.m. I was in front of the chief of police being informed that I needed to look for another position.
Report: In and Out: Middle East
The rapid wave of real estate development and amount of wealth accumulated in the Middle East has long fascinated
the rest of the globe. The abundance of natural resources in the region has resulted in a huge influx of wealth over the
last 50 years. However, despite the massive development of commercial and residential property over that time, the
investment market remains tiny by comparison, leaving unsatisfied demand. It also pushes cash-rich Middle Eastern
investors towards alternative sectors and outside their home region. Are there changes ahead that may bring more
opportunities to the Middle Eastern real estate market?

Periodical: CoREMarket Indicator - April 2014
So far in 2014, the optimism from the end of 2013's upturn in the
economy has continued and the market is delivering on promises
made for this year. The figures from the first quarter indicate that the
Canadian office and industrial sectors are in excellent condition and
will continue to be so for the predictable future. The U.S. corporate
real estate (CRE) market has remained strong and is not expected to
increase much more this year than it did last year but stability is far
from disappointing. In Europe, increased investments in the
manufacturing sector and the improvement of the office market in
London have led the way to a steady recovery these past few
months. The primary markets in Asia Pacific slowed in growth
towards the end of 2013 but the emerging markets in the region,
such as Malaysia and Vietnam, showed significant progress. So far
this year, the CRE industry is performing well and the prediction is
that this fortune will continue throughout 2014.

Report: U.S. Industrial Trends Report 1st Quarter 2014
The industrial sector continued to register healthy demand numbers in the first quarter of 2014, albeit at a slightly slower pace than the lofty numbers reported in 2013. As one of the industries most impacted by severe weather - e.g., big-ticket purchases, manufacturing and construction projects were delayed - a slowdown in the sector was expected. Nevertheless, the U.S. industrial sector absorbed 26.1 million square feet (msf) of space in the first quarter of this year. Although this is 12.6 msf less than absorption posted the previous quarter and 6.6 msf less than that posted the first quarter of 2013, net absorption continued to outpace supply. In fact, the industrial sector has now experienced 16 straight quarters of mostly robust demand. That has brought vacancy down to 8.3%, just a tick above pre-recession levels. Of the 66 metros tracked during the first quarter of 2014, 41 reported that vacancy rates are now below their historical averages.
