Commercial Property Up 5% in July

Increase in prices led by sales of smaller properties outside of major cities, Moody’s reports.

U.S. commercial real estate prices rose for a third straight month in July as deals for smaller properties led a rebound that may stall as the economy slows, according to Moody’s Investors Service.

The Moody’s/REAL Commercial Property Price Index advanced 5 percent from June. It’s up 1.2 percent from a year earlier and almost 13 percent from its post-peak low in April, the New York- based company said in a report today.
