Here is a price index for commercial real estate that I follow.
From CoStar: CRE Price Recovery Continues With Strong Showing in November
The two broadest measures of aggregate pricing for commercial properties within the CCRSI—the value-weighted U.S. Composite Index and the equal-weighted U.S. Composite Index—increased by 1% and 0.7%, respectively, in the month of November 2014, contributing to annual gains of 9.9% and 14.8%, respectively, for the 12 months ending in November 2014.Click on graph for larger image.
VALUE-WEIGHTED U.S. COMPOSITE INDEX SET A NEW HIGH-WATER MARK. Investors’ healthy appetite for core properties propelled growth in the value-weighted U.S. Composite Index, which surpassed its pre-recession peak previously set in 2007 by 5.1% in November 2014.
PRICE GROWTH ACCELERATED IN EQUAL-WEIGHTED INDEX. Price growth in the equal-weighted U.S. Composite Index, influenced more by smaller, non-core deals, accelerated to an annual pace of 14.8% in November 2014, from an average annual pace of 7.5% in 2013.
This graph from CoStar shows the the value-weighted U.S. Composite Index and the equal-weighted U.S. Composite Index indexes.
The value weighted index is at a record high, but the equal weighted is still 14% below the pre-recession peak.
There are indexes by sector and region too.
The second graph shows the percent of distressed "pairs".
The distressed share is down from over 35% at the peak, but still somewhat elevated.
Note: These are repeat sales indexes - like Case-Shiller for residential - but this is based on far fewer pairs.
