Sales of office, retail, multifamily and industrial properties asre expected exceed $100 billion in 2010; more than double the $45 billion projected for all of 2009, according to Real Capital Analytics. "We have hit bottom and are starting the new decade on the upswing," the New York research firm said. The projected increase would be the first year-over-year gain since 2007.
Real Capital noted that credit markets have shown signs of thawing, which could help facilitate sales in 2010. It added that capital raising by investors has been stron in 2009, led by REITs, which raised $28.3 billion this year, including $17.2 billion of equity from 59 stock offerings.
