NAFTA 2018- Good or Bad for Real Estate?

BY  ON OCTOBER 21, 2018

In a recent episode of Real Estate News for Investors, Kathy Fettke discusses the recent United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement  (USMCA) on trade to see if this is a good or bad deal for real estate.  This “NAFTA 2018” deal will not go into effect for another year but when it does it could bolster demand for commercial real estate, inparticular.  She reports that while there are plenty of critics, a few big names in U.S. real estate are giving it a “thumbs up.”

CBRE says the USMCA could fire up demand for real estate that supports distributors, automotive suppliers, and retailers. It says that NAFTA has helped generate “significant capital investment” in U.S. industrial real estate, and that complex across-the-border supply chains, developed under NAFTA, will be preserved.
