Some areas of commercial real estate are looking good, though others are less positive, indicating the recovery will still be a slow one, as explained by this Wall Street Journal article. Commercial real estate losses have hit banks to the tune of $80 billion, only half of the Federal Reservebs estimate for their total losses due to the recession.

There are examples of big deals, especially in larger cities. But unfortunately, the increasing commercial property values are due more to the appeal of low interest rates to investors rather than actual upticks in rent or vacancy rates—two areas that must improve to boost the recovery.
