LONDON, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The U.S. housing market began a strong recovery last year driven by record low
mortgage rates and pent-up demand. Although the commercial real estate market
also showed signs of improvement last year, the recovery was not as strong as
the one seen in the housing market. However, the outlook for the commercial
real estate market has improved significantly since the start of this year due
to an improvement in the overall economic environment. This is expected to
benefit REITs focusing on office space. On Tuesday, June 18, 2013, shares in
commercial REITs ended on a mixed note even as the broader market posted
gains. The major movers included Digital Realty Trust Inc. (NYSE: DLR),
CommonWealth REIT (NYSE: CWH), Boston Properties Inc. (NYSE: BXP), Highwoods
Properties Inc (NYSE: HIW), and Piedmont Office Realty Trust Inc. (NYSE: PDM). tracked DLR, CWH, BXP, HIW, and PDM. These free reports
