U.S. Commercial Property Prices Increased

NNN Lease market news

U.S. commercial property prices increased in May for the first time in six months as a rebound in distressed real estate helped boost values, according to Moody’s Investors Service.

The Moody’s/REAL Commercial Property Price Index rose 6.3 percent from April, the largest gain since the measure began in 2000. It’s down 11 percent from a year earlier and 46 percent below the peak of October 2007, the company said today.

“A number of transactions that were recorded in May had their most recent prior sales in 2009 as the market was beginning to bottom and subsequently traded for substantial returns,” Tad Philipp, director of commercial real estate research at Moody’s, said in a separate statement. “We are likely to see a pickup in post-peak repeat sales and expect such transactions to play an important role in helping drive the CPPI higher.”
