US Commercial Property Price Growth Accelerates in January

By on February 25th, 2021

The pace of U.S. commercial property price growth accelerated in January, climbing back near the growth rates seen before Covid-19 struck, the latest RCA CPPI: US summary report shows. The US National All-Property Index rose 6.9% from a year ago and 1.2% from December.

The acceleration in price growth comes even as deal volume slumped again in January following December’s record haul, as shown in US Capital Trends, also released this week.

Office prices rebounded into the new year, up 3.3% from January 2020. As recently as August this index was posting no annual growth. Suburban offices drove the increase in January.
