While unemployment has been hovering just under 10% for some time now and consumer confidence is very low, a positive holiday season could allow some of these new retail stores to stay open and remain customers. This could help to fill the unusually empty shopping centers where vacancies rose to 10.9% during Q3. The record high was set in 1990 at 11.1% so the current vacancy rate is approaching historic levels.

One trend throughout the REIT-retail industry lately has been to raise capital through debt and equity offerings. Companies are looking to refinance their debt at the currently low interest rates and to make acquisitions of attractively priced properties. However, rising interest rates and a coming round of property valuations could derail some of this sector's strong momentum.
