On March 20th, as part of Heartland Bank’s Power Breakfast Series, Greg Schenk, SIOR CNE President The Schenk Company, Inc. presented an overview of the Commercial Real Estate Market in Columbus covering each product type: Office, Industrial, Retail, and Apartment.
His presentation included the February 2013 Commercial Research Report, the Commercial Forecast: 2013.Q1 on the Vacancy Rate, Net Absorption, Completions, Inventory and Rent Growth in Office, Industrial, Retail and Multi Family in the Columbus Market vs. the rest of the country. He reviewed the 2012.Q4 Columbus Market Trends including market highlights, a snapshot of both market and historical vacancy and absorption, lease rates and the latest changes in occupancy.
He ended his presentation touching on what to take under consideration during lease negotiations, the mistakes that are commonly made during negotiations. This information gives business the opportunity to reassess their lease and renegotiate to renew or restructure at record low rates.
