Some shopping centers that cater more towards the lower income demographic still have cause for concern. High unemployment and higher fuel prices could cut the legs out from under the most recent positive consumer trends. This would send the sector likely back towards where it was during the recession. With negative pricing trends in leasing renewals as well as lost market share to online shopping, the lower interest rates could be the only thing helping the valuations of companies like Developers Diversified Realty Trust Corp.

Because of this uncertain climate, many companies are looking to divest their non-core assets. The recent economic uptick has made the pricing environment somewhat more attractive for property sales and many companies in the sector are looking to take advantage. General Growth Properties Inc. is thought to be one company that is eying the market to see if it could get a good price for its assets. Divesting properties could be good for companies if the economic recovery backslides or continues to move slowly. However, increasing exposure could be good if the recovery makes any positive movements.
