Where are the risks from US commercial real estate greatest?

While we expect a more-than 20% peak-to-trough price correction for US commercial real estate, offices face a much tougher outlook, with large falls in net operating incomes compounding the broader re-pricing facing the sector and driving a peak-to-trough price fall of over 30%. Regionally, we expect the greatest pain to be felt in San Francisco, where office values could see an average peak-to-trough fall of 50% and apartment values face the biggest fall.
