Most analysts believe that when the numbers are in and tallied, it will show transaction volume was slightly down in 2017 compared to 2016. That said, the results may be indicative of a boom year in 2016 for foreign investment in our industry by behemoths like Anbang, HNA and some other major Chinese investors - a trend that could not be repeated in 2017 due to Chinese restrictions on hotel investment that took effect midway through 2017.

We expect that 2018 will be a solid year for transaction activity. Lenders and investors alike are flush with capital. REITs resumed healthy investment activity in the later part of 2017 as stock prices increased, access to capital grew and some of the foreign sources of competition for quality assets dried up. Private investors are taking advantage of the availability of capital to grow their companies. There is continued optimism in the investment community that there is still upside to grow into the future, following an unprecedented 9-year rebound from the Great Recession.

Ultimately, the health of the investment market is tied to the hotel industry’s operating performance at a local and regional level. As long as performance trends are positive, interest in hotel investment will remain brisk. This is still the case in most western region markets. Despite being in an extended cycle, many hotels can still be purchased below replacement cost, meaning there are still great opportunities for buyers to create value. At the same time, 2018 may be the year that some owners can reclaim some equity from pre-recession investments they may have considered gone - or the year they can harvest equity from some investments made during earlier parts of the cycle.
