Commercial Real Estate: There Goes the (Entire) Bubble

Bloomberg reports:

Commercial real estate values in the U.S. fell 27 percent in the year through June and rents for offices, shops and warehouse space may continue to drop through 2010 as the recession saps jobs and consumer spending.

The Moody’s/REAL Commercial Property Price Indices fell 1 percent in June and are down 36 percent from their October 2007 peak, Moody’s Investors Service said in a report today. A rebound isn’t likely until the second half of next year, the National Association of Realtors forecast in a separate report.

Calculated Risk notes:

Beware of the "Real" in the title – this index is not inflation adjusted – that is the name of the company (an unfortunate choice for a price index). Moody’s CRE price index is a repeat sales index like Case-Shiller.

Which of course gave me the idea to show the index in both nominal and real (backing out inflation using CPI) terms.

Moody's real commercial property index

Talk about full circle… BUT, it is likely far from over. Back to Bloomberg.
 

Unemployment of 9.4 percent, falling industrial production and a drop in consumer spending curbed property demand, NAR said. Falling rental income and scarce credit are hurting both landlords and investors in securities backed by commercial property loans. Defaults and late payments on commercial mortgage-backed securities may surpass 7 percent by year-end, according to research firm Reis Inc.

“It’s too soon to call the bottom,” said Connie Petruzziello, a Moody’s analyst and co-author of the commercial property price report.
