If you are the owner of a commercial properties, hold on for a rough year. 2010 will likely be the rock-bottom for the commercial real-estate market.
The silver-lining is that new investors will benefit if they are able to step in and buy up the properties. Sellers of these commercial properties have been hesitant to lower prices, however they will need to to get the property sold and avoid foreclosure. Both scenarios work in favor of the buyer, who, if they are able to secure a bank loan, or have the cash on-hand will find remarkable deals towards the year's end and into 2011.
