The CCIM Institute, is pleased to launch a series of podcasts focusing on the commercial real estate market for brokers and other professionals. The CCIM Institute confers the CCIM designation and is an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). The CCIM movement began more than 40 years ago with commercial real estate practitioners who wanted to elevate their business practices through education and networking. Then and now, education and networking remain the cornerstones of the CCIM designation and the reason for its success. In this first podcast, we present an interview with Kenneth P. Riggs Jr., President and CEO of Real Estate Research Corporation (RERC), and publisher of the RERC/CCIM Investment Trends Quarterly. Ken discusses the First Quarter 2007 edition of the ITQ, a joint publication of RERC and CCIM that provides a national perspective on the industry, including insightful narratives with national economic information and statistics; cap rates, pre-tax yield data, major real estate indicators; absorption/vacancy forecasts; national sales data for five major property types; and a commercial forecast from the National Association of Realtors®.
