U.S. commercial real estate prices have been at historical lows since 2007 resulting from the combined effects of the US housing market collapse, the credit crunch and the Global Financial Crisis.

Prices for commercial property have dropped 42% since their peak in October to December 2007, according to the Moody’s REAL Commercial Property Price Index. The index posted gains in three of the last four months of 2010 as set out in Figure 2 below. As you can see from Figure 2, commercial property prices are at similar levels to 2003 and this represents a buying opportunity, as you can purchase interests in high quality assets at low prices.
As you can see from the chart above, commercial property prices are at similar levels to 2003 and this represents a buying opportunity, as you can purchase interests in high quality assets at low cost. Then as the economic recovery gains momentum, real estate prices will rise, providing patient investors with strong investment returns.
