Stress Testing in Real Estate

As a new wave of coronavirus hits the United States, it is difficult to predict what will happen to the state of the market and economy in the next months. There are a lot of things that are out of our control, particularly during this pandemic. In these times of crisis, stress testing is vital to prepare for any possible downturns in the economy. Failing to predict potential problems will have a huge impact on your business that could have been easily avoided if planned ahead. Stress testing gives you the ability to assess and prevent future concerns. This gives you the opportunity to avoid or lessen the damage of a certain problem and look for better choices. Don’t take it for granted and skip this process, especially to your asset management.

To keep moving forward and adapting to these situations, developing better strategies, systems, and doing your due diligence is essential. If you also want to make sure that your underwriting and stress testing is done efficiently, ask for help from another person who will look at the possible holes in the evaluation. Communicating with your team about the outcome of your stress testing is a big part of it.
