Surprising Advantages of Leasing in a Tough Economy | CoStar

According to PwC, 41% of private companies believe a recession would be a major risk to their company. They are not wrong. But is it possible that it is still a good time to make moves in your real estate portfolio?

On Sept. 28, Matt Waters, CPA, and Director of Lease Accounting at CoStar Real Estate Manager will be sitting down with David Shebay, Finance Lease Leader with PwC, to hash out why (or why not) a company should lease during an economic downturn.

This thoughtful webinar conversation will be an open forum for discussion, questions, and advice from two industry experts. Whether you have been leasing for years or are considering new leases in the present day, Matt and David will help you determine the when, the how, and the why of leasing in an economic slump.
