Commercial Property Price Index
Pan-European Commercial Property Price Index
Covid Price Declines Vary; On Average, 10%
The Green Street Commercial Property Price Index was unchanged in July. Property values were marked down in March and April—depending on property type, from 5% to 25%—but are untouched since.
“The transaction market is quiet these days—and properties that are trading are ones relatively unaffected by the pandemic—so it’s tough to say with certainty how much pricing of some property types has changed,” said Peter Rothemund, Managing Director at Green Street Advisors. “But it’s pretty clear that the range of outcomes is going to be wide. Record-low interest rates mean properties with a stable top-line outlook will hold up well. Those with some risk, say multitenant office, probably see something like a 10% hit on average. And those with a lot of hair, like lodging and some retail, lose even more.”

What makes our commercial property price index unique?
There are significant differences between the Green Street CPPI and other indices that track commercial property prices. Green Street's CPPI is appraisal-based. Appraisal-based indices are only as good as the valuation estimates used to construct them, and Green Street has long devoted sizable resources to deriving accurate estimates of the values of the properties owned by REITs. Most other indices are transaction-based.
Green Street's Pan-European Real Estate Analytics platform covers 25 of the most liquid European real estate markets across the industrial, office, and retail property sectors. The Commercial Property Price Index is a time series of unleveraged property values across these sectors and markets, and captures the prices at which commercial real estate transactions are currently being negotiated and contracted. Features that differentiate this index are its timeliness, its emphasis on average institutional quality properties, and its ability to capture changes in the aggregate value of the commercial property sector.
