Pricing for all four major property types posted double-digit annual gains in May 2022, according to MSCI's Real Capital Analytics

Commercial Real Estate Pricing Posts 18.6% Year-Over-Year Gains 

With industrial and apartments in the lead, all major property types posted double-digit price gains year-over-year in May, MSCI’s Real Capital Analytics reported Thursday.  The RCA CPPI National All-Property Index climbed 18.6% from a year ago, albeit slightly below the record-high annual price growth seen at the start of 2022, and rose 1.1% in May from April. 

Industrial prices climbed 28.6% from a year ago, a record annual rate for this sector, and rose 1.8% from April. Prices on traded properties have remained robust even amid a potential cooling in the market, with deal volume ebbing for a second straight month in May, RCA said. 

Apartment prices also registered an all-time high growth rate. The annual pace of 23.3% in May matched April’s rate, a record for this sector. Retail and office grew Y-O-Y by 18.8% and 12.2%, respectively, with CBD office posting its fastest Y-O-Y gain since 2014..
