It’s happened. Sequestration. And yet… it wasn’t Armageddon as some in Washington had predicted. Airplanes didn’t stop flying, schools didn’t close and life moves on, albeit as our leaders in Washington continue to bounce from financial crisis to financial crisis, real or imagined.What will the impact of sequestration be on commercial real estate? Lending? In all honesty, no one really knows. It depends on who you’re talking to. However some sectors have continued to improve, particularly in multi-family investments. In the past 12 months, there has been a general increase in activity in several sectors, particularly the industrial sector. Although not as significant, there has been growth in the retail and office sectors as well.
