Welcome to the second-quarter 2013 edition of CCIM Institute’s Quarterly Market Trends. The report provides timely insight into major commercial real estate indicators for core income-producing properties. It is produced by the National Association of Realtors® in association with and for members of the CCIM Institute, the commercial real estate industry’s global standard for professional achievement. The second-quarter 2013 report features commentary from Lawrence Yun, Ph.D., NAR chief economist, and George Ratiu, manager of NAR’s quantitative and commercial research. It also includes market and transaction data collected from CCIM members that illustrate transaction trends across the U.S. I’d like to thank the CCIM members who participated in the survey and shared insights on their local markets. While the economy poses good news and bad news scenarios for sustained recovery, consumer confidence continues to improve, businesses continue to expand, and the housing market continues its upward trajectory. Those factors make commercial real estate appealing to investors. I hope that the information provided in CCIM’s Quarterly Market Trends report provides both economic and commercial real estate market information that will assist you in your business strategies in 2013 and beyond.
