VIDEO: Sitt calls commercial real estate market a “utopia”

Joe Sitt Thor Equities head, Don Peebles see continued market strength

Josef sitt


A growing number of observers reckon the real estate market is heading for a correction in 2016, but Joe Sitt and Don Peebles are having none of that.

Peebles, head of the Peebles Corporation, believes demand for apartments is stronger than people think. “There’s a lot of pre-construction sales, and those sales have not gone to record yet, ” he told Bloomberg.

Joe Sitt, of Thor Equities, is similarly optimistic about the U.S. commercial real estate market. “It’s actually, right now, utopia, ” Sitt said. “What do I mean by that? You’re still not peaking in terms of where the rents are as compared to where the prior peaks were.”
