2012 is our rear-view mirror and the optimism of 2013 lays before commercial real estae investors. This means that the commercial real estae continues to show as an durable investment with assets looking to increase in value when compared to the volatility of the world markets and certainly offers more stability than stocks. Foreign investors are particularly bullish on U.S. commercial real estate as they look for stable investments during uncertain times abroad. Most property sectors continue to post occuplancy gains and rental rate growth and an era of zero to low new supply is starting to give way to new construction starts in most property sectors. In Washington, commercial real estate remains a prime target for investment capital as it continues to perform well relative to alternative investments.
