Recent Ohio Reports

Q2 2016 Cincinnati Office Market Report

Cincinnati’s diverse economy has fully recovered from the effects of the Great Recession and, according to Moody’s Analytics, is close to entering the “Expansion” phase of the business cycle. Strong job growth in Professional and Business Services, Financial Activities, Healthcare and Information Tech sectors continues to generate solid demand for office space. Coupled with minimal speculative construction activity, the market is recording growth in rental rates.

Q2 2016 Columbus Retail Market Report

The industrial market is growing. A surprising thought considering all the headlines that promise to reshape the economic landscape; notably Great Britain opting to leave the EU and the looming presidential election, yet industrial tenants and landlords continue to show confidence in Central Ohio. During the second quarter of 2016, the region saw 440,487 square feet of net absorption, constituting the 13th consecutive quarter of growth. Absorption numbers are up 8.7 percent year-over year reducing the overall vacancy rate to 6.1 percent– a 30 basis point reduction from the second quarter of 2015.

Q2 2016 Cleveland Retail Market Report

Cleveland’s economy continues to diversify and is firmly in the “Recovery” phase according to Moody’s Analytics. Private sector employment has begun to increase more quickly and the share of private industries expanding payrolls is at the highest level since the 1980’s. Most of this growth is occurring in the white collar, officeusing sectors, but the old-line industrial sectors have also improved. Manufacturing job growth has averaged an increase of 1.7 percent per year since 2009. Healthcare will play an important role in future growth as well, due not only to increased demand for healthcare services, but also in the pharmaceuticals, medical device and biotech sectors.

Q2 2016 Dayton Office Market Report

The Dayton area economy’s recovery has accelerated and is starting to catch up to its peer metro areas in Ohio. Payroll employment has surged, rising faster than any other time since the late 1990’s. Unemployment has dropped to 4.4 percent as of the end of May; below both the state and national rates. Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, which employs more than 27,000 people, making it the largest single site employer in Ohio, remains a key driver to the Dayton market.

Ohio Multifamily Report - 1H 2016

Since the end of the last recession, the U.S. apartment market has rebounded the strongest of all commercial real estate asset classes, leading some to speculate that the sector is at or near its cyclical peak. True, there are signs of moderation. After two years of torrid rent growth, the year-over-year increase as of May 2016, decreased slightly to 6.0 percent, with forecasts calling for an annual increase in the four to five percent range by the end of 2016. This is a more sustainable pace, which should also assist n maintaining current levels of demand as household formation continues to increase.
