Volume of U.S. commercial real estate transactions completed 2001-2018

Volume of commercial real estate transactions completed in the United States from 2001 to 2018 (in billion U.S. dollars)

Volume of U.S. commercial real estate transactions completed 2001-2018 In 2018, the volume of commercial real estate transactions reached 394 billion U.S. dollars. A real estate transaction refers to the process of passing the rights in a property unit from the seller to the buyer in return for an agreed upon sum. The volume of real estate transactions has been trended downwards since 2015.
Effect of 2007-2008 credit crisis

The U.S. real estate market reached its peak in 2007, just before the 2007-2008 credit crisis when the property market collapsed. The value of commercial property returns dropped between 2007 and 2009. Since 2010, the market has steadily recovered, and the volume of transactions increased until 2015.

Types of commercial real estate

The change in overall transaction volume is most likely impacted by the type of commercial properties which are more attractive to investors in a particular period. For instance, the interest in multifamily housing investment opportunities went down in the same period that interest in hotel investment opportunities went up.
