Recent Market Reports

From Recovery to Expansion in 2016

2016 Fourth Quarter | Las Vegas Quarterly | Market Report
Southern Nevada posted a strong 2016 (so far), recovering from the Great Recession and laying the foundations for economic expansion. With a national recession in the near future unlikely, we think Southern Nevada’s economy will continue to grow through 2017 and 2018.

Unemployment in the Las Vegas-Paradise MSA stood at 5.5 percent as of October 2016, down from 6.4 percent in October 2015. The national unemployment figure was 4.9 percent in October 2016, down from 5.0 percent in October 2015. The national labor force participation rate dropped to 62.8 percent in October 2016, but was 0.4 points higher than in October 2015.

2016: Back in the Groove

2016 Fourth Quarter | Las Vegas Industrial | Market Research Report
If 2015 marked a mini-boom year for Southern Nevada’s industrial market, when tenants and developers started making up for lost time, then 2016 was the year the industrial market got back into its groove. 2016 was not as strong a year as 2015, but it did have sustainable growth throughout the entire industrial market. Net absorption in 2016 was 3.5 million square feet, compared to 4.9 million square feet of net absorption in 2015. Arguably, more construction in 2016 would have increased that net absorption figure. Industrial inventory grew by 3.3 million square feet in 2016, with another 4.5 million square feet under construction as of the fourth quarter. Vacancy decreased this year to 5.3 percent from last year’s 5.6 percent. This is the lowest industrial vacancy in Southern Nevada since 2006. The weighted average asking rate increased to $0.67 per square foot (psf) on a triple net (NNN) basis, a $0.04 increase from 2015.

Retail Market Report
Retail Ends 2016 on High Note

2016 Fourth Quarter | Las Vegas Retail | Market Research Report
The retail year ended on a positive note, after a brief slowdown in the middle of the year. Fourth quarter net absorption of 234,591 square feet brought annual net absorption up to 889,587 square feet. This healthy demand brought retail vacancy in 2016 down to 8.3 percent from 2015’s 9.5 percent, a substantial improvement. New completions remained subdued, with retail inventory expanding by only 216,920 square feet in 2016. Should the market remain healthy in 2017, we believe that the pace of retail development will increase. The asking rental rate for retail space in 2015 was $1.36 per square foot (psf) on a triple-net (NNN) basis, $0.05 higher than one year ago.
