Q4 2013 – NAI Horizon Office Market Report

After a slow first half in the Phoenix office sector, the second half of 2013 showed signs of improvement and brightened the outlook for 2014. The year ended with 1.6 million SF being absorbed, with almost all of those transactions occurring in the second half. Rental rates and vacancy continued to improve throughout the year, with rental rates peaking at $20.42/FS, the highest rate seen since 2011, and vacancy rates constricting to 19.4%, down from 20.6% at the end of 2012. These indicators point to a sector in the beginning stages of recovery, and should see slow but steady improvements in 2014 and more dramatic changes in 2015.
