Moodys: Commercial Real Estate Prices Drop

I just linked to S&P's latest numbers (through May) from earlier this week. Today, Moody's has reported their latest (through June) and it shows a bit bleaker picture.

Commercial real estate prices continued to decline in June, according to Moody's/REAL Commercial Property Price Indices, Moody's Investors Service said Wednesday.

The index fell 3.3 percent from May, and was down 9.6 percent from the year-ago level.

June was the fourth consecutive month that the index declined, Moody's said. The CPPI now stands 11.8 percent below its peak in October 2007.

The index is based on repeat sales of the same properties across the U.S. at different points in time.

All four property types measured by the index went negative during the second quarter, Moody's said. The national industrial market saw the largest price drop, down 9.3 percent during the quarter. National apartment market prices fell 7.1 percent, while office prices slipped 5.9 percent and retail declined 4.6 percent.
