RCA: Annual Price Gains Grow Across Major Property Types

All four major property types posted larger prices gains nationally in July compared to June, Real Capital Analytics said Thursday.  The analytics firm’s CPPI grew 11.8% over the past year and 1.2% over the previous month.  

Retail and office sector pricing posted significant annual price jumps, with retail up 7.5% year-over-year in July and office up 8.8% Y-O-Y, driven by 11.7% growth in suburban office pricing. However, apartments led the way with 13.5% annual growth and 1.66% monthly growth.  

The price index for industrial properties rose 11.8% Y-O-Y in July, according to RCA. Since April, monthly price growth for the sector has stagnated at 1.1%. “Still, this price index has been resilient throughout the pandemic, never dropping below a 9% annual rate of growth,” RCA reported.  

Prices in the non-major metros areas rose 11.5% Y-O-Y, the fastest rate of growth since 2006. In the six major metros, prices climbed 9.6%.
