U.S. commercial real estate markets continued to exhibit stability or mild improvement in the fourth quarter, Moody's Investors Service said Wednesday.
The overall composite score rose a point to 65 compared with the prior quarter, based on a range of 1 at the weakest end and 100 at the strongest. That puts it within two points of the highest scoring bloc, which Moody's calls "green."
Across all sectors, measures of market strength either improved slightly or stayed the same, the agency reported. The multifamily composite sector remains the only one with a green score, which held steady at 88. Retail also held steady at 64 during the fourth quarter.
