Market Reports

The Office vacancy rate increased to 7.1% during the second quarter of 2019. Up from 6.4% since the end of Q1 2019.

Quoted rental rates ended the second quarter at $19.40, a slight increase of 0.4% over the previous quarter, when rents were reported at $19.33/SF.

The majority of the negative absorption is due to speculative construction of office space delivering during Q2 at a pre-leased occupancy of 65%.

Year to date sales are out pacing those in 2018. So far in 2019 sales are averaging $91/ SF and 8.5% Cap rate.

"The office market was relatively flat during Q2, with vacancy rates increasing only due to new construction hitting the market faster than it is being leased." - Andy Dutcher
