Annual Investor Survey


The 2023 Annual Investor Survey reflected the industry taking an investing pause in the face of uncertain economic times, yet not retreating completely, as real estate continues to play a critical role in investors' portfolios, delivering current income, providing rel­atively attractive total returns and offering unique portfolio diversification benefits. The survey revealed investors decreased their real estate return expec­tations for 2023, reporting a 6.6 percent expected total return, down from an expected return of 8.4 percent last year, with core/core-plus real estate remaining as the cornerstone of both U.S. and non-U.S. investors’ real estate portfolios.

What is the outlook for 2024, and how have the continuing post-pandemic inflation and the lingering possibility of a recession shaped your expectations and plans for the coming year? To complete the 2024 Annual Investor Survey, please click here.
