    October Employment Numbers Point to More Fed Action. 

October’s U.S. jobs report continued a months-long streak of gains, but also indicated a slowdown, said the @mortgage_bankers_association’s chief economist, Mike Fratantoni. “While the pace of growth slowed in September to 263,000, this is still faster than can be sustained in the U.S. economy over time,” he said. “And other data clearly signaling a slowing economy lead us to forecast a sharp drop in job growth over the coming months.” 

In a research brief Friday, @marcusmillichapinc observed that both the unemployment rate and broader underemployment measure fell back to multi-decade lows in October. “A decline in the number of people without a job or seeking additional hours reflects a general lack of labor supply,” according to Marcus & Millichap. “This imbalance is supporting elevated wage growth and contributing to inflation.”

    Cutting Through WFH/Hybrid Work Misinformation.

Depending on what you read, employees are demanding to work from home and remotely, or employers are adamant about getting people back in the office. Away from the emotionally laden headlines, the truth of the matter is that the trend is somewhere in between.

The “2022 @bomainternational COVID-19 Commercial Real Estate Impact Study” questioned 1,200 U.S. commercial office space decision-makers. Despite what headlines and pundits would have anyone believe, employers and employees both are supportive of hybrid work. In fact, more than six in 10 members of each group want to be back in the office at least three days a week.

    @blackrock Alternatives has released its annual outlook for private markets, and although 2023 is expected to bring some turbulence, the asset management firm believes the outlook is one of “cautious optimism.” 

The report, “2023 Private Markets Outlook: A New Era for Investors.”, noted that private assets are set to play a critical role in investors’ portfolios next year, with private equity, private credit, real estate and infrastructure now “uniquely poised” to capitalize on unfolding global trends.

    It’s been a dismal year for stock markets, and the number of companies filing for initial public offerings (IPOs) has dropped significantly. Following record years for public offerings in 2020 and 2021, many companies have opted to stay private amid widespread geopolitical instability and macroeconomic uncertainty. 

With only 1,333 IPOs raising $179.5bn, IPO activity sank 45% and 61% by number of deals and proceeds, respectively, from a year ago, according to the @ey_global IPO Trends 2022 report published this week.

    The Value of Commercial Real Estate Continuing Education.

Real estate continuing education (CE) courses are necessary, but they don’t have to be boring or painful. CE courses have a “grin and bear it” stigma—you need the credits to fulfill state #CE requirements and remain licensed, so there’s been no onus to make the courses interesting. 

But in a time of digital innovation—and webinar fatigue—the same-old approach is outdated. 

#ConnectClassroom CE courses are created with a poetic, user-centric approach to real estate continuing education. The courses are designed to be as enjoyable as they are educational, enhancing and extending your knowledge base with information you’ll want to start applying from day one. 

Completing your continuing education requirements shouldn’t be dreadful—it should be enjoyable! Courses tailored to your wants and needs can take you from, “I have to watch this” to “I can’t wait to apply what I learned!”
