A Look at the South: Umemployment Rates, Housing Stats and Job-Growth Numbers

13 Nov 2012

With the presidential election behind us, we here at Lincoln Property Company Southeast anticipate moving into a more definitive climate for corporate decision making, leading to increased activity in all sectors of commercial real estate.

We are watching a number of trends that will ultimately impact  vacancy rates and changes in asking rents. Succeeding in our business demands that we stay on top of the economic data that illustrates the short- and long-term health of the markets in which we operate.

In the graphs below, we present statistics highlighting the steadily improving job climates in Georgia and Florida, and the improving housing market in the South overall. The data provides powerful evidence that the Southeast is on the road to economic recovery and will therefore provide the conditions needed for its commercial real estate markets to grow in the future.

We hope you find these numbers a compelling look at the region in which we at Lincoln Property Southeast work and in which you invest.
