Florida residents who are interested in commercial real estate may be interested to learn of a recent report in the Wall Street Journal that as investors have driven up the real estate prices in hot markets, analysts are becoming more concerned that those markets are too hot. In certain U.S. cities such as Los Angeles and New York, the valuations of office buildings sold is reportedly the highest since they have been tracked.

Commercial real estate is seen by many investors to be a better option than bonds or other holdings. Consequently, large U.S. investors have been gobbling up commercial real estate,as well as those from other countries. Low interest rates and the availability of additional money through banks have contributed to the increase as well.

Many analysts are worried that the quick rate of increase could lead to problems down the road. The federal government has also indicated that regulators are watching it closely as well. Some experts are call it a market typical of a late cycle, and have said it's not quite yet time to panic.
