Strong 2016 Market Trends in Real Estate
Clint Dewey, Associate Director, Colliers International NY LLC

Working hard with clients to meet needs in one of the most important markets in the country, I pay attention to the information that helps me "Inform, Inspire and Engage" clients.  Commercial real estate is a bell-weather of sorts, so you might find the following data interesting.
  • Manhattan commercial office space showed great trends in 2016, not only passing 2015, but surpassing the important full year leasing results eight of the last ten years. 
  • Continued job growth sustained tenant demand.   Between November 2015 and November 2016, more than 61,000 new private sector jobs (a 1.6% increase) were added in New York City, higher than the 1.3% growth for New York State and consistent with the 1.7% gain nationally during the same period.
  • Consistent employment has helped.  Year-over-year, New York City unemployment (through November 2016) remained stable at 5.2%, less than half of the post-recession high of 10.5% in January, 2010.
  • On the flip side, higher demand was not able to keep pace with Manhattan's growing supply.  Pressure showed in the upward trend of availability.
I am optimistic about the real estate market in New York and available to help your organization with the right fit.  Click here to read the full report!
