All signs are pointing to the strong possibility of real recovery in the United States commercial real estate market. Real estate brokerage and property management companies from around the globe are starting to expand their services into the United States. That indicates that investors around the globe are eyeing the United States market as being one that is quickly regaining its health.

While the real estate market as a whole is expected to stabilize and see very slow growth this year, it is expected to improve at a much faster rate in the next few years.

Companies like UGL Ltd. and BGC Partners Inc both announced plans to expand in the United States. BGC Partners Inc has already started the process by purchasing and then combining various small real estate brokerage companies.

A number of smaller upstarts are taking the same action as BGC, buying smaller competitors. While all signs are pointing to positive market growth, some economists believe that these companies may be getting too aggressive in their actions. Should the market stumble, they will be facing incredibly tough times from which they may not recover.

Running into stumbling blocks is always a possibility for new startup companies. In general, it is the manner in which business overcome those stumbles that determines whether or not they will be successful in the long term.

Nearly half of the most valued global commercial properties reside in the United States. In fact, the United States accounts for seven and a half trillion dollars in commercial properties. With the market expected to grow in the coming years, it may be worth getting into the market now as opposed to later.
