His evaluation includes:
- Core market pricing has held steady since 2015 with a softening in secondary markets over the past 18 months.
- Metrics and indicators suggest commercial real estate is in or nearing a late stable stage of the market cycle.
- Markets such as Washington, D.C., and Houston have surpassed peak conditions with no reason to expect a significant downturn.
