RCG Economics: Industrial Vacancy Falls in 1Q

RCG Economics Industrial Vacancy Falls in 1QLocal industrial vacancy rates fell to 16.3% in the first quarter, or 0.2% less than a year prior, reports RCG Economics. Transportation and warehousing gained 1,300 jobs during the last 12 months during which no new industrial space was completed. Yet, a return to market normalcy is still far off. “The valley’s industrial real estate recession continues to move sideways, as the job market remains less than robust,” said RCG principal John Restrepo. “There was 100,400 square feet under construction in the first quarter, which is essential for the market’s return to a healthy supply-demand balance.”

Marcus & Millichap: Office Rent Growth Still Far Off

Marcus & Millichap Office Rent Growth Still Far OffSignificant local office occupancy gains and rent growth will remain elusive for several more quarters, as companies rely on underutilized space in their existing offices to house new hires, said Marcus & Millichap. Through 2012, lenders will continue to clear balance sheets, recognizing the likelihood for soft conditions to persist over the foreseeable future. Prices illustrate the depth of distress in Las Vegas, with the median roughly 70% below pre-recession levels.

Restrepo Positive Valley Office AbsorptionThe valley’s fragile office market showed a small but significant improvement in the first quarter, reports RCG Economics. There was 39,900 square feet of positive absorption during the first three months of 2012. It marks only the third instance where net absorption has been positive in the last 17 quarters since the end of 2007. In comparison, there was 223,985 square feet of negative net absorption during fourth quarter of 2011. “The market appears to be stabilizing compared to this time last year,” said John Restrepoprincipal of RCG Economics. “It’s a good sign that certain product and market niches appear to be stabilizing, but the macro picture remains troubling.”
