Commercial property market improves.

According to the Property Talk Live website (www.propertytalklive.co.uk) the UK commercial property market picked up in February, producing an improved total return of 0.8% and capital growth of 0.3% according to CB Richard Ellis' latest UK Monthly Index. 

This represents a marginal increase on January's 0.7% total return, as property yields continued to nudge downwards as a result of continued investor demand.

The report says that property yields continue to nudge downwards as a result of continued investor demand.  Retail Warehouses had a strong month with a total return of 1% and capital growth of 0.5%, although Central London offices remained the strongest performing sub-sector, having outperformed for the duration of the property market recovery, with total returns of 1.5% and capital growth of 1.1% in February.
