  • Interest rates are at historical lows making today an attractive time to refinance, expand, or acquire new properties.
  • Vacancies are still a concern for lenders, but leasing activity is picking up.
  • While the vacancies hurt financial performance, the money saved from refinancing is more than making up the difference.
  • Acquisition activity is picking up due to the availability of funds (debt and equity), cost of funds, increased leasing activity, and some prices that are below replacement cost.
