The article analyzes the factors that have lead to real estate-related companies in the U.S. flooding the corporate bond market. According to John Sheehan, a director on Citigroup Inc.'s fixed-income syndicate desk in New York, the market in general has seen a higher level of activity because of the better tone in the market, and a very significant rally in the Treasury market. The companies tapping the bond markets last week included three real estate investment trusts, one real estate fund and one home builder.
