Reacting to the post, Kotak Mutual Fund’s Managing Director Nilesh Shah said that the Washington DC building goes for 7,589 per square foot. He said, “I did this calculation twice to confirm the number. The commercial real estate in the US is truly in deflation/fire sale. Who bears all these losses?”

Commercial real estate section in the US

In the US, the commercial real estate sector has been under intense pressure. This comes amid rising interest rates over the past couple of years. In the US, prices have tumbled by 11 per cent since the Federal Reserve started raising interest rates in March 2022. Last week it was reported that an 11-story office tower in San Francisco was sold at a 60 per cent discount.

The building was bought at 60 Spear Street which is a 56-year-old office building. It was bought for $41 million from Clarion Partners that had acquired the property in 2014 for $107 million, it was reported.
