International Influx

Commercial Investment Real Estate Magazine, a publication of the CCIM Institute, published an article authored by AGG Partners Philip G. Skinner and Abe J.

The key to understanding and profiting from the current trends in the next year or two lies in the answers to questions such as whether the current market climate will likely attract more attention from foreign investors, what types of properties interest foreign investors, what deal structures work best, and what kinds of connections facilitate foreign investment deals. Mr. Skinner and Mr. Schear answer these questions and more. To read the full article, please click here.
