Since I own commercial real estate and as a Realtor accept commercial real estate listings, I stay in close touch with what the commercial market is doing. As far as our local market values they have steadily risen for years. While the past two years have seen a very moderate adjustment downward in the residential side that will certainly be recovered this year and the next, commercial real estate is in high demand and "business is booming"

We have lots of new commercial development going on in Lawrence with the new Wal-Mart going in and the adjoining land being developed with strip malls, office spaces, etc.

Lawrence Kansas Real Estate Commercial and homes for sale are both doing very well.

Thanks and "Don't keep me a secret--I'm never too busy for your referrals!"

The Commercial world is a completely different animal. The question is a little bit to vague, because there are many different types of commercial structures, retail, malls, multifamily, office, etc... With in these subgroups you can have different performances. Overall, the commercial world here in Kansas have maintain a good foothold in value. In the upcoming months I perceive no changes. I believe this because a commercial investor purchases property based on what it produces, not on emotions, amenities, or potential appreciations. Return on investments a calculated on current and past performance. Therefore, the result of these approaches and practices in the overall commercial industry, maintain more stable values.

Hopefully this helps!
