Commercial Property Prices Down 15% vs. Last Year
Newport Beach, CA, May 4, 2023 — The Green Street Commercial Property Price Index® decreased by 0.1% in April. The index, which tracks the pricing of institutional-quality commercial real estate, has fallen by 15% since property prices peaked a year ago.
“Prospective sellers may refuse to accept it, but that doesn’t change the fact that the bid price for most commercial properties is much lower than it was a year ago,” said Peter Rothemund, Co-Head of Strategic Research at Green Street. “On average, prices of institutional-quality properties are down 15% versus this time last year.”

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, retail, and residential 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.
