"The market continues to be landlord friendly with vacancy rates at an all time low and rents appreciating rapidly. With construction prices remaining at historic highs the demand for existing product remains strong and giving tenants limited options. We feel this trend will continue into the 2022 calendar year." - Grant Bates, SIOR | First Vice President 

Key Takeaways:

  • Vacancy rates have compressed to a historic low of 3.8% at the end of 2021.
  • CNBC ranked Virginia the number one state for business for the second year in a row- the first state to be awarded the title 5 times.
