Foreign investment in commercial real estate deals with an average value of $2 million increased in 2017, while large-cap commercial market transactions with an aggregated value at $10 million and above decreased, according to data from the National Association of Realtors and Real Capital Analytics (RCA).
In 2017, small-cap commercial deals in tertiary Florida and Texas markets attracted the most international buyers, predominantly from China. However, during the second quarter of 2018, this trend began to reverse for the first time in more than a decade, as Chinese investors sold more property than they purchased.
