Do you think commercial real estate prices are plunging globally? Think again.

From reports: “Between lockdowns & travel restrictions, the COVID-19 pandemic contributed to the precipitous fall of global commercial real estate investments in the 1st half of 2020. The final tally was US$321 billion in the first 6 months of the year, a 29% drop. But there were outliers: Deal volume in Japan increased 7% to US$24 billion, & Germany saw only a 1% decrease. Additionally, South Korea outperformed its long-term, first-half average in spite of a 15% decline. How did they do it?
