Subscribe

Does anybody know of a study that has been done on the relationship between dry powder in real estate funds and the real estate cycle? Any insights would be helpful!

Bump. Looked up information on this before and couldn’t find anything substantial.

Not over cycles, but green street recently came out with a short piece on how there actually isn’t as much dry powder as everyone thinks

Not to be a nit-picky asshole, but how the fuck does a reputable firm write something like that? Isn't as much dry powder as who thinks? As I do? As you? Are they setting some arbitrary number as what the common consensus on uncommitted capital is, just so they can write something to undermine it? It's just such a stupid piece. Especially when you consider just how little knowledge they have; if you equate "dry powder" with "uncommitted capital" then there is effectively an infinite amount, because for the right deals, people will always find the money.

How the fuck did I get ms over this? I just said green street put out a piece holy shit

I wouldn't worry too much about bananas and monkey shit. I just checked - I have apparently been given ms 591 times.
