Average asking prices dropped 4.81% in March compared to month-over-month data, with cap rates rising by 25 basis points in the same period, according to Crexi, which based these numbers on its users' activities for the month.

The banking crisis facilitated the sharp drop in asking rates as building owners sought to stay competitive "and appeal to current and prospective tenants when most businesses are taking a hard look at their bottom line and operational costs," Crexi said.
