As we enter the next quarter (Q3 2017), we are filling the remaining investor availability on these excellent commercial real estate investment opportunities in Florida:
An Overview of Florida’s Commercial Real Estate Market for Q2 2017
Orlando’s commercial real estate market continues trending upward in the second quarter of 2017. This market absorbed 387,949 sp. ft. urged on by sizable investments in the Lake Mary and Maitland submarkets. This performance prompted yields to jump 8 points, continuing year-over-year improvement since 2012.
With 350,000 sq. ft. of new commercial space expected next year, Orlando’s real estate market is adding new opportunities for investment, reflecting the city’s energetic economic development.
Employment has also improved; over 40,000 new jobs were added in the last quarter. The US Department of Labor’s new data showed a drop in unemployment in Orlando to 3.6%, below both state and national averages.
Q2 Orlando Vacancy Rates
- Office vacancy rates are 9.5%; down 320 basis points from Q2 of 2016.
Q2 Orlando Average Asking Rental Rates
- Office rental rates are $21.73 per sq. ft.; up $1.62 from Q2 2016.
Orlando continues to perform well against national averages, as predicted by Marcus and Millichap’s 2016 projections, and reflect Florida-wide positive trends. Given the state’s low unemployment rates, increase in market activity, and rising consumer confidence, the Orlando market is poised to continue its climb into Q3 and Q4 of 2017.
