U.S. commercial real estate prices rose again in September, the latest RCA CPPI summary report shows. The US National All-Property Index gained 1.0% from a month earlier and is up 7.5% from a year ago.
Prices have risen 1% or more over the past four months while overall deal activity has dipped, a disconnect which is explored in the latest edition of US Capital Trends. Deal volume for the year through Q3’17 is down 7% versus the same period in 2016.
Apartment prices grew the most in September, up 1.1% from August. Retail posted the slowest growth, edging up 0.1%. This continues a trend of tepid interest in the retail sector, with deal activity the second weakest among the property types this year.
Real Capital Analytics relaunched and expanded its suite of commercial property price indices using a new methodology in early September 2017. To learn more about the RCA CPPI and to sign up for reports visit rcanalytics.com.
