Highlights from the Report

  • At the national level, CoStar’s Investment Grade Commercial Repeat-Sale Index is up 6.8% compared with the same period last year, even after four consecutive months of declines, including a very slight 0.3% decline in February.
  • CoStar’s General Grade Index is down 10.9% compared with the same period last year, although this pricing index has trended upward recently, posting two consecutive months of increases, including a strong 0.8% increase from January to February.
  • The Composite Index, which is an equal-weighted analysis repeat sale pricing index incorporating both the Investment Grade and General Grade indices and a reflection of the broad overall market, posted a slight increase in property value for the month of February of 0.6%, reflecting the strong monthly increase in the General Grade repeat sale index. The Composite Index is down 7.5% year over year.
