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.
