Has the fall in commercial property gone too far?

John Caudwell, the billionaire founder of Phones4U, has today revealed he is moving into commercial property in a big way. The leading light in the mobile phone industry believes that the fall in commercial property values has gone too far and sees good value on a medium to long-term basis. Many experts in the sector believe this is a possible sign that the market could be bottoming out and we could see the injection of some much-needed confidence over the next few weeks.

The yield on commercial property has risen as property values have plummeted and can in many situations offer a very attractive income stream for the future. Whether the market has actually bottomed out remains to be seen but there are bargains out there with many distressed sellers "giving assets away". It will be interesting to see if there is any follow-through from other investors, something which could form a useful base for a possible recovery.

However, it is also worth pointing out that some areas of the commercial property market have suffered more than others and investors looking at this sector need to be very careful and very aware of the dangers still prevalent in the property market.
