The U.S. industrial real estate market may be descending from its peak. After two consecutive quarters of growth, the sector registered a $6.7 billion quarter-on-quarter decline in deal volume in the fourth quarter of 2017. The weak numbers may be due to tax reform. Investors were said to have delayed closings to take advantage of more favorable conditions under the new tax law. Read the report here.
