Weekend Recap April 13

As you can see below, there is a lot happening in the Retail sector this week and this year. Big box retail is being re-tenanted and a lot of cool projects are coming about from this. The DFW market is still on fire and Collin County sees no signs of stopping. Downtown Dallas is getting a recurrent face-lift and I believe this will continue. We find ourselves in an exciting time in Texas while the market remains strong. With interest rates starting to tick up, I believe there is only so much time CAP rates can remain at this historic low.
