Integra Realty Resources Shares Real Estate Projections for the U.S. Hospitality and Hotel Sectors

Julie Fugitt-Schultz, Co-Leader of Integra Hotels Specialty Practice Group, Presents National Survey Findings in New Webinar

USA, Denver, Colorado. June 01, 2020

The U.S. hospitality sector has a significantly higher risk profile as compared to the majority of other property types, both in terms of depth of impact from COVID-19 and length of recovery period, according to a new survey conducted by Integra Realty Resources (IRR), one of North America's largest independent commercial real estate valuation and consulting firms.

Julie Fugitt-Schultz, CCIM, Co-Practice Leader of Integra's Hotels Specialty Practice Group, presents these findings, along with an in-depth dive into the hospitality sector in a newly released, free webinar that can be accessed by visiting www.irr.com/news/COVID19

In the presentation, Fugitt-Schults provides a broad overview of market sentiment from IRR's National COVID Real Estate Impact Survey regarding the hospitality sectors' risk level relative to other property types, followed by a US Economic Outlook specifically as it relates to Unemployment and GDP projections, and how local economies could be impacted by the timing of and level of lifting travel restrictions. She discuss expectations for short-term revenue loss and the impact on hotel values based on market surveys, which provide a basis for hypothetical best- and worst-case valuation forecasts, keeping in mind the degree of vulnerability is contingent upon factors such as location and property class, and repricing risk. Finally, she discusses the impact of COVID-19 on supply and demand.

IRR's COVID Real Estate Impact Survey, conducted between March 31 and May 1, 2020, is ongoing and consists of IRR professionals in more than 60 markets across the country interviewing market participants including developers, property managers, owners, investors, mortgage brokers, real estate brokers and lenders to assess the current and anticipated real estate impacts of COVID-19.

Revenue Management: Monetizing All Offerings


Of all the departments within hotel operations, Revenue Management may have been the hardest hit, due to the pandemic. The logic goes - no revenue, no need for revenue managers - so many industry professionals were furloughed. If business rebounds in 2021, as expected, then hotel management will have to determine when prevailing occupancy levels justify bringing back their revenue management team. Also, the pandemic seems to have exposed some weaknesses in the traditional RevPAR models. There is a growing understanding that it is no longer sufficient to use a "revenue per available room" model; instead, hotels are adopting a TRevPAR model (total revenue per available room). This model recognizes that revenue streams from other departments are just as important as the revenue gained from rooms. As a result, hotels are looking at ways to monetize any and all hotel offerings - from dining outlets and spas to outdoor function spaces and local partnerships. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
