CLOSING THOUGHTS

We have seen an increase in net rental rates on large blocks of space.

Lease rates are now starting at $7.25 net per sf and higher, while smaller blocks are leasing at more than $8.00 per sf net.

Property values have increased significantly over the past three months due to extremely low supply.

As you can see from the examples provided, a good number of lease and/or sale transactions are completed “off the market.

That being said, make sure that you give us a call and let us know what you are looking for. There is a good chance that we can locate such a property for you.
