Don’t miss our annual Real Estate Outlook & Emerging Trends in Real Estate update on January 10, 2010. This year’s Emerging Trends presentation will feature Mitch Roschellethe US National Practice Leader for PwC’s Real Estate Advisory Practice, who will focus on trends to watch in 2019, followed by a presentation by HEB President Scott McClelland on the evolution of the grocery business and the trends in that rapidly changing industry from a real estate perspective including the retail, industrial and multi-family sectors.

Emerging Trends — 40 years of reporting on the top cities for real estate

Emerging Trends in Real Estate® celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. The publication is one of the oldest and most highly regarded forecast reports for the real estate and land use industry. Each edition offers extensive insight and analysis on industry trends and developments based on an extensive survey, multiple interviews and individual market focus groups. The publication is highlighted by its closely watched list of top emerging cities nationwide

A new era for real estate demands new thinking

Much has changed in the industry over the 40 year history of this publication, and 2019 could be an exciting year for real estate. Now more than ever, real estate is viewed as a more mature asset class, fueled by the continued allocation of capital to real estate funds. Over the last several decades, we have seen the emergence of a number of different real estate investment vehicles, such as REITs, real estate private equity funds, commercial mortgage backed securities, mortgage debt funds, and crowd sourced investments.

“Real estate as an asset class has matured. Market participants need to realize this and make the appropriate adjustments.”

As real estate continues to mature, we are witnessing the ongoing transformation of an industry dealing with a tight labor force, the implementation of new technology, and the adoption of practices to attract new capital to the asset class.  Industry players are making plans to capitalize on the expected transition to what could be a more stable and sustainable real estate market.

The grocery business is undergoing transformations and disruptions that affect grocery shoppers and real estate owners across the spectrum. H-E-B, one of the nation’s leading independent food retailers and the largest private employer in Texas, has made innovative changes and partnerships to become a digital retail industry leader. Scott McClelland, H-E-B’s President, will talk about Emerging Trends in both the global grocery business and more specifically within our hometown grocer, H-E-B.

Previously McClelland served as President of HEB’s Houston operation. Under McClelland’s leadership, H-E-B’s grew from an 11% to a market leading 27% share by opening larger stores with a heavy emphasis on low prices, locally sourced products and tailored assortment based on the neighborhoods around each store. Known as the “HEB Guy”, Scott is the local face for H-E-B starring in TV commercials along with JJ Watt, Craig Biggio and other local notables.
