"Volatility" seems to be an understatement – what is going on in the debt markets? Bernanke – last Wednesday decided to broadcast Fed's intention to taper the bond buying program.

Mark's questions to Peter include:

1. "Volatility" seems to be an understatement – what is going on in the debt markets? Bernanke – last Wednesday decided to broadcast Fed's intention to taper the bond buying program – which sent the capital markets into a tail-spin.

2. It seemed there was zero lag in the market's reaction – is that accurate?

3. How does this effect pricing across the board?

4. Is this an anomaly, or are rates truly headed up?

5. Specifically – what about multifamily – the so-called "darling" of the investment industry – where are rates today vs. last month?

6. Its times like this that shakes everyone up a bit – do you see buyer terms and behaviors shifting a bit in response to rising rates and volatility? There's been almost 18 mos of low volatility and low interest rates. The questions is whether rates are going higher or if they'll plateau for a bit?

7. Who are the primary players in this space?

8. And how do they compare?

9. Talk about the deals that grabbed some of the lowest historical rates – they should have a competitive advantage not only because of the obvious cash-flow – but what about re-sale?

10. It seemed transaction velocity was well underway in most markets across the country – any thoughts on what we'll see for the second half of the year? Some say it will be a little quieter – but there's an abundance of capital that still wants to deploy – so there will probably see some confusion and quiet this quarter – but those dollars are not going away.
