2021 Q1 | State of the Market (MS&C Commercial, Sarasota)

The tri-county area commercial market began the year trending positive with strong market fundamentals for all property types. Looking back at the quarter, and similarly to 2019 and 2020, the largest commercial sales in the market involved multi-family properties.

Although office tenants are evaluating what their mid- to long-term office footprint will look like in the future, overall office rents increased throughout the quarter. With the growth of consumer online shopping, industrial/flex tenants are continuing to increase their warehouse/distribution space. The retail market will continue to be supported by residential development.

As we move into the second quarter of 2021, the continued expansion of the area driven by the steady population growth will see an influx of commercial real estate activity. Read on for more of the latest in the region’s commercial real estate market.
