Investors struggle to make money in overheated real estate market, Cushman & Wakefield economist says - San Francisco Business Times

Investors struggle to make money in overheated real estate market, Cushman & Wakefield economist says - San Francisco Business Times: The hot real estate market is now in “extra innings," experts said, which has investors worried.

Developers and investors have been raking in large profits on deals in the years since the market bottomed out about a decade ago amid the Great Recession.

Now, the big questions are how long can the hot market continue and how can investors keep making money, said Kenneth McCarthy, principal economist with Cushman & Wakefield, who spoke on a panel Thursday during the Eisner Amper West Coast real estate summit in San Francisco.
