U.S. commercial property prices rose 6.5% in June from a year earlier, propped up by industrial prices which increased at their fastest rate since the start of 2015, the latest RCA CPPI summary report shows. The US National All-Property index gained 0.9% in June from May.
Industrial was the only property type to log increased annual growth in June – up to 13.3%. Investor demand for the sector has been robust but finding the right assets has proven challenging. Industrial sector sales volume dipped in the first six months of 2019 compared with a year ago, as noted in the new edition of US Capital Trends, also released this week. Deal volume is likely to rebound later in the year, however, with multibillion-dollar entity-level deals already announced.
Apartment prices grew 7.3% from a year ago. While the annual gain is still a sizeable return, it is far from the 12%+ gains the sector saw this time last year. Price growth has steadily ebbed since the start of 2018, even as sales volume hit a record high in the first half of 2019.
