This past January, distressed properties made up 21.1 percent of the total transaction volume
in commercial real estate, according to CoStar Group data. Although that is a year-over-year
decline from 30.1 percent in January 2011, troubled assets continue to be a significant issue
in the industry. In fact, distressed property sales of office, industrial, retail and multifamily
properties accounted for $21 billion in sales this past year, and CoStar anticipates similar levels
for 2012. These past Scotsman Guide articles offer tips on working with these properties.
