Another key issue affecting clients’ real estate decisions is the constrained labor market. Companies in every sector, including retail, hospitality, manufacturing and profes- sional services, are having difficulty filling open posi- tions. In turn, companies may be delaying decisions such as expanding or moving spaces or signing long-term leases. In spite of these worries, CORFAC brokers are optimis- tic for a strong finish to 2021. The strength of industrial and emergence of subsectors such as cold storage are buoying the industry, and the broader reopening is driving deals and plans for the future. CORFAC International is a global network comprised of privately held entrepre- neurial commercial real estate firms.

According to research from Yardi Market Insight, industrial sector vacancy rates averaged 5.8% in 30 top mar- kets nationwide and aver- age rents for industrial space reached $6.31 per square foot. Rents for industrial space in New Jersey climbed to the third spot by yearly growth, up 6.3% compared to July 2020, trailing only California port markets. Trends driven by the way we live and shop today also showed up in the survey re- sults. Ecommerce (47%) and cold storage/warehouse (25%) were other key subsectors for CORFAC members in the sec- ond quarter. And the growth of remote work contributed to office subleasing/disposition (27%) being another significant business source. Some Worries Linger for Real Estate Professionals Though both sentiment and activity are rising, some areas of anxiety were identified, including concern about tax code changes particularly to Cushman & Wakefield’s Tor s t en Tha l er , John Wilkinson, Chuck Fern, Jason Barton, Thomas Tuc- ci & Stephen Shoemaker represented Questar in the transaction.
