The U.S. Federal Reserve lowered its benchmark rate by 25 basis points to 2% – 2.5%, signaling the first downward adjustment of interest rates since the 2008 financial crisis. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the move is “not the beginning of a long series of rate cuts” but the Fed kept their options open by saying they will “act as appropriate to sustain the expansion.” While it doesn’t directly impact commercial real estate loans that aren’t Prime based, it does signal that this low-interest rate environment may continue.
