Phoenix Year End 2014 Office Market Report


Be sure to check out our latest Office Market Report featuring insight from office agents Troy Giammarco and Nathan Pancrazi.

“With the varying conditions of each submarket, now more than ever owners and tenants alike need the core competencies and “boots on the ground” knowledge of brokers with experience in each given micro-market. This allows owners and tenants to be accurately informed of the users in the market, true vacancies and the “basket of concessions” that should be offered or expected when making their transaction decisions.”

Phoenix Year End 2014 Industrial Market Report


Be sure to check out our latest Industrial Market Report featuring insight from industrial agents Rick Foss and Brock Amundson.

“Year end results for 2014 in the valley’s industrial market give reason for optimism for 2015. The sector experienced over 7 million SF of net absorption in 2014, the strongest growth since 2005. This is a significant feat considering that 6.38 million SF of new construction was delivered in 2014. This marks the highest amount since 2008. Additionally, another 2.76 million SF is currently under construction as of the beginning of 2015. Further proof of the improving market was seen with a 3.5% increase in rental rates, for 2014, the third straight year of raising rents. This continued improvement is due in part to an improving economy, tightening of available product and job growth; the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9% from 6.8% at the mid-year point.”
