The Real Deal Miami

Bulk of large US investment sales were in states Dems won

The overwhelming dollar volume of large U.S. commercial sale transactions took place in states where the losing presidential candidate — Hillary Clinton, a Democrat — was the victor.

Over the past two years, $107 billion, which comprises more than 90 percent of the $117 billion in sales transactions of $200 million and up, were in states that she won, according to an analysis by The Real Deal of Real Capital Analytics data. Conversely, there were only $10 billion in sales in the state the GOP candidate — and now President-elect — Donald Trump won.

The figures highlight the enormous concentration of real estate value in large metropolitan areas and states that tend to be heavily Democrat.
