Opportunity Zones, Marijuana-Related Properties and Retail Assets Among Best CRE Bets for HNW Investors in 2019

Wealth management experts and CRE professionals discuss the types of properties HNW investors should pursue in the coming year.

As high-net-worth (HNW) investors zone in on commercial real estate opportunities for 2019, Opportunity Zones, multifamily, marijuana, retail and industrial are emerging as some of the key areas to watch.

Real estate investments made next year by HNW investors should be weighed against rising interest rates and the prolonged economic expansion, according to Doug Brien, co-founder and CEO of Oakland, Calif.-based Mynd Property Management, which specializes in multifamily assets.

“For deals to make sense, investors will need to make sure cap rates remain high enough to balance out rising interest rates,” Brien says. “In my opinion, a long-time horizon should be incorporated into any investor’s strategy if they’re acquiring properties at such a late stage in this rising interest rate environment.”
