Which cities will best weather the pandemic?

Nashville at night

As volatility climbs across global financial markets, investors are wondering where to find opportunities. Real estate is no exception. Nuveen Real Estate’s research team created a model to forecast U.S. real estate performance across the 50 largest cities in the country, and the results may surprise you. As selective investors, we know that even in the midst of a crisis, research and experience can uncover opportunities for growth and income.

Markets with large exposure to newer non-cyclical industries such as information technology (San Jose), life science (Boston) and defense (Washington, D.C.) are best - positioned for resilience. Markets with large exposure to cyclical industries such as tourism (New Orleans), hospitality (Las Vegas), energy (Oklahoma City) and retail (Miami) may face continued challenges.

What did we measure?

For each city, we considered these factors:

Real estate is just one facet when it comes to which cities might fare best from here

Many factors need to be considered, such as how severe the next wave of the pandemic could be. It is important to recognize that our analysis does not take into account all those that could be considered when evaluating the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Additionally, significant variations in outlook could occur. Finally, the impact on specific property types in a given city can vary significantly from the city’s economy as a whole, as sector performance is also driven by supply, demand and valuation. However, this framework provides real estate investors with insight into the dramatic diversity of opportunity and challenge at play in the market today.

A word on risk

Real estate investments are subject to various risks, including fluctuations in property values, higher expenses or lower income than expected, and potential environmental problems and liability. Please consider all risks carefully prior to investing in any particular strategy. A portfolio’s concentration in the real estate sector makes it subject to greater risk and volatility than other portfolios that are more diversified and its value may be substantially affected by economic events in the real estate industry. International investing involves risks, including risks related to foreign currency, limited liquidity particularly where the underlying asset comprises real estate, less government regulation in some jurisdictions, and the possibility of substantial volatility due to adverse political, economic or other developments.
