NAI Earle Furman Releases 2Q Market Snapshots

By

NAI Earle Furman has released its Second Quarter 2016 Market Reports. Reports include market snapshots in the office, retail and industrial sectors of commercial real estate. The reports summarize the quarterly market statistics – including vacancy, construction, asking rents and absorption – across commercial property types and submarkets in the Upstate.

Among the highlights in the reports:

Office: The 2nd quarter of 2016 continues to show improved trends in the Greenville/Spartanburg office market. Upstate South Carolina progresses to perform like a market that is more confident from the landlord’s perspective. The vacancy rate increased only slightly from the 1st quarter and is currently 8% with net absorption totaling (25,129) square feet. DOWNLOAD HERE

Retail: The second quarter of 2016 experienced many of the same successful and positive trends that previous quarters have. Vacancy rates continued to fall from 5.8% in the first quarter of 2016 to its current state of 5.6%. Asking rental rates saw a slight increase from $9.99 per square foot in the first quarter to $10.02 in the second quarter. As vacancy rates continue to decline, retail construction continues to thrive and be successful. DOWNLOAD HERE

Industrial: Vacancy dips to the lowest rates in over 10 years as lease rates continue to move higher. Class A large products have made a rebound as of late, but the demand for smaller buildings in the 20,000 to 50,000 SF range still seems to be challenging to satisfy. The Greenville/Spartanburg Industrial market ended the 2nd quarter 2016 with a vacancy rate of 6.9%. The vacancy rate continues to remain low with net absorption totaling positive 3,186,525 square feet in the 2nd quarter. Landlords continue to see an increase in lease rates. Our average asking rental rates have seen positive growth, at $3.64 NNN per square foot. DOWNLOAD HERE
