Simple Question:

In the United States, what are the top 3 cities that are best for Commercial Real Estate?

You may need to be more specific. Asking for top 3 markets in “commercial real estate” is like saying what’s the top three cities for “food”. There’s Retail, Office, Apartments, Industiral, etc. Then there’s subtypes.

I’m not sure there’s any top three cities and it depends on what type of commercial real estate you’re interested in. Highrise offices and multifamily are doing well in major cities here, but so is retail mixed use. Check costar, loopnet,, Urban Land Institute, etc. Depending on what submarket you’re specifically asking about, they’ll outline the top 10-20 cities.

define best… best cashflow? best appreciation? best (i.e. cheapest) cost? best looking?
