The 2017 Urban Land Institute (ULI) Fall Meeting was held from October 23rd to 26th at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Over 6,000 stakeholders in the real estate industry came together to network and listen to discussions from thought leaders on an array of diverse topics.
Commercial real estate properties are divided into four major property types, also known as “food groups” or “asset classes”: Multifamily, Office, Retail, and Industrial. In addition to these four major categories there are many sub-groups and minor property groups, including hospitality, senior housing, student housing, medical office, self-storage, and raw land. If you are new to commercial real estate investing, you should become familiar with each major property type.
