The Commercial Real Estate Trends & Outlook Report discusses trends in the small commercial market (transactions that are typically less than $2.5 million) based on a survey of members of the National Association of Realtors® engaged in commercial real estate about their transactions in the second quarter of 2020.

Across the multifamily, industrial, office, retail, and hotel sectors, REALTORS® reported a decline in sales and leasing transactions, a decline in sales prices, and an increase in vacancy rates, with retail and hotel suffering the heaviest blow from the coronavirus pandemic. Industrial and multifamily remain as the strongest legs of the commercial real estate market, in both transactions for structures and land. The office market is also impacted, but it is in the middle of the pack in terms of the impact.
