With financial difficulties ending, commercial property shines

Even though our South Florida readers have seen time and time again ample evidence that the residential real estate sector has been performing admirably over the last year or so, it seems that the commercial real estate market is playing catch-up. The numbers concerning commercial property, such as retail sites, industrial property, warehouses and especially office buildings, pale in comparison to the red-hot residential sales and development figures. However, the gap may be closing.

Does the sale of a Margate retail center signal a rebound?

Most of our readers probably know by now that the South Florida real estate market has been hot for months. Residential real estate values continue to climb, and there really isn't an end sight.

But what about commercial real estate?

Will the South Florida commercial real estate market heat up too?

Many of our South Florida readers who are familiar with previous posts here have seen plenty of good news regarding the residential real estate market in the area. Despite the continuing malaise of the housing market throughout much of the country, with a recovery only coming at a snail's pace, the market in South Florida has been hot for months and is only getting hotter. Well, on the heels of all of that good news regarding the residential real estate market, a report has been issued recently which predicted that the commercial real estate market will continue to improve as well.

The beginnings of a commercial real estate rebound in Florida?

The glut of vacant commercial real estate during the nation's recent economic downturn was arguably just as troubling as residential foreclosures.

Residential and commercial real estate still lagging in Southeast

Most of those who work in commercial real estate in Florida already know the state has seen a dramatic shift downward over the last several years. That fact was recently made clearer, as Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta President Dennis Lockhart suggested that the economy in the Southeastern United States is lagging behind the overall U.S. recovery because of the region's more severe real estate slump.
