A Hike with a Side of Dovishness

20 December 2018

Despite some late-stage clamoring in the media about the Fed pressing the “pause” button yesterday, the FOMC moved ahead with its decision to hike rates for the fourth time this year to 2.25% - 2.50%.

National 2018 Q3 Office Market Report

National 2018 Q3 Office Market Report

31 October 2018

Inflation has been contained throughout much of this recovery cycle. Low borrowing costs, cheap oil and gas and subpar wage growth have kept inflation in check. Controlled costs may be a distant memory by 2019. Interest rates are now rising.
