CorePoint to be acquired by Cerberus JV; CoreSite fields takeover offers

S&P Global Market Intelligence offers our top picks of real estate news stories published throughout the week.

Many real estate sectors have a supportive environment for M&A, including shopping center real estate investment trusts and possibly office REITs. This is due to a discount to private market values, cheap debt and improved institutional demand, according to Mizuho's Nareit takeaways. Nareit is the U.S.-based trade association for REITs and publicly traded real estate companies. The report noted that perception has improved around shopping centers and cap rates are trending above other core real estate sectors. For office REITs, the ongoing steep discounts to NAV could be highly enticing to private investors.

Supply chain and labor market issues as well as inflation were also in focus at the recent Nareit Industry conference. Industrial rents and warehouse demand continue to stay strong. Rising labor and utility costs could lead to higher rents in other segments as well, including healthcare.
