What’s Next for the SoCal Commercial Real Estate Market?

“While the multifamily, apartment sector weathered the housing market downturn well, with households moving from owning to renting, other segments were significantly impacted,” says Michael LaCour-Little, director of the Real Estate and Land Use Institute at CSUF’s Mihaylo College. He adds, “There have been recent signs of a turnaround though – for example, Reis Reports shows average asking and effective rents up for retail properties during the 4th quarter of 2011. Moreover, after consistently negative net absorption, the office market is finally showing positive demand, although rents are back to pre-2004 levels.  As one of the top apartment markets in the country, rents continue to rise while vacancy rates fell during the 4th quarter of 2011.  As international trade picks up, demand for industrial warehouse space is expected to follow.”

    In my own view, I think the real estate market in 2012 would just be another year of struggling. Though there are instances that experts do expect increase in mid and last quarters of the year, I doubt that it would be enough to say that the market is beginning to pick back up on it stable form and that interest of investments are still there. Real Estate schools have been likewise continuing to educate and license individuals into entering the housing market for them to further prepare themselves with the housing market.
