A report from research firm Real Capital Analytics delivers a mixed bag for global commercial real estate. Activity in certain regions such as the Pacific Rim and the Americas is heating up, while others, namely Europe, the Middle East and Africa, are starting to decline. Global property sales reached $132.3 billion in the third quarter for a 22% increase in year-over-year transaction volume. At the same time, the pace of growth was actually moderated, as year-over-year gains in transaction activity dropped from 134% in the first quarter to 43% for the second quarter.
