Hi Steven,
After developing over a million feet here in Phoenix, the same product that we sold is being dumped back on the market at 50cents on the dollar, well under replacement value. the population will continue to grow, jobs will come back and tenants will return, its a question of time value of money, do you have patient money or are you buying property with money that you need to see an immediate return on? Feel free to call me if you would like me to answer any questions or just be a friendly soundboard.

Yes, its is a good time to invest in commercial properties! Its a Buyers market! Multi-family properties, retail and office properties in major college towns are a very good investment. In West Lafayette, IN we are seeing strong appreciation even as the coasts are looking at negative returns. Contact me to discuss at 765-427-3496 or

Many of the experts think the Massachusetts market will continue to decline over the next few months. I tend to agree for the most part, but I do see a handful of isolated markets maintaining the good consistent numbers they've been reporting lately.

Unless I am mistaken, “emerging markets” are nations or countries such as China, India, Indonesia, Brazil or Russia. Other countries that are also considered as emerging markets include Mexico, Argentina, South Africa, Poland, Turkey, and South Korea. If you’re asking which city in the US appears to be strongest place for a commercial real estate investment, I would say look at the employment rate, and not only the current employment rate but a least for the past two years, and that should be good indicator.
Here is a good website with Geographic Comparisons related to Employment Growth:
