United States Commercial Property Market Top Choice Among Investors

Please Share!

Global investors have long considered the United States to be the best commercial real estate market for investing their money. That perspective is not expected to change in 2011, as analysts believe the U.S. will remain the top market choice among global investors in 2012.

The United States has long been considered by many global investors to be the most stable commercial property market worldwide, and with rent and occupancy rates expected to grow in the next year, that reputation is expected to continue. Prime cities continue to be the target markets for most international buyers, with New York, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, and Boston being the most preferred choices.

Brazil has quickly established itself as the second most preferred market to global investors, as its rapidly growing economy and strong performance expectations over the next few years playing a significant role in its rise to the top. With both the World Cup and the Olympics set to take place in Brazil in the next five years, the nation has become an international hotbed for investors. In fact, Sao Paolo jumped more than 20 places to be named the fourth best city for commercial real estate growth in 2012.

While the United States remains the top choice among global investors, interest has waned slightly. The number of prospective foreign investors in commercial real estate in the U.S. is expected to drop by roughly twelve percent in 2012.

China rounds out the top three for the best commercial real estate markets for international investors. China was the second best market for 2011, though with strict government restrictions likely to remain in effect, many international investors have decided to look to other nations.
