Market disruptions due to COVID-19 and geopolitical concerns throughout the world mean a high degree of uncertainty in the economic outlook. Still, current data implies continued expansion for the Denver region. The commercial real estate markets remain steady with low vacancy rates. As for home prices, they’ve held steady year-over-year.
For most of Q1 2020 there was continued dynamic growth and activity, yet the quarter ended with uncertainty from COVID-19. The first quarter numbers indicate that office vacancy rates saw an increase year over year from 8.67 percent in 2019 to 9.30 percent currently. The increase is primarily due to the new 202,454 square feet delivered to the market so far this year.
Dallas’ office market has been one of the strongest in the US. The strong market continued at the beginning of Q1 as vacancy slightly decreased from 20.1 to 19.7 percent. This was mainly due to the solid absorption of nearly 1.2 million square feet in Q1. According to JLL, construction remains strong. There are currently no large corporate campuses under development, although JPMorgan Chase (540,000 square feet) and Uber (469,000 square feet) have build-to-suits underway.
