Covid-19 Hits Commercial Real Estate Market

Commercial Real Estate Investment Sales volumes have been significantly impacted by COVID-19 during the second quarter of 2020, and Colliers expects that impact to continue for at least the remainder of 2020. Omaha has also been impacted, but COVID-19 has not hit Omaha as hard as many parts of the US. Omaha never formally went into “lockdown,” so Commercial Real Estate Investment Sales volumes in the first half of 2020 were down, but not to the same degree as the entire US.
