Cranes evidence the downtown Orlando recovery as previously shelved hotel, office and apartment projects are resurrected. The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts opens Fall 2014 and an 18,000-seat Major League Soccer stadium will accommodate Orlando’s new MLS franchise. Orlando is still the top tourist destination in the world and will host a record 56+ million visitors and generate $50 billion in economic impact in 2013; with expansions like Disney’s Avatar, Magic Kingdom, Downtown Disney and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal 2014, visitation is expected to exceed 63 million and bring an additional $1.3 billion of new business. Burgeoning Lake Nona Medical City is home to such facilities as the Nemour Children’s Hospital, UCF’s Health Sciences Campus, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute and VA Hospital; by 2017 “Medical City” is expected to create 30,000 jobs and $7.6 billion in economic impact. To accommodate Orlando’s population and tourism growth, Orlando International Airport is preparing for a $1.1 billion expansion to host an estimated 45 million travelers by 2020. SunRail will begin service in Spring 2014; running 61 miles from Volusia to Osceola County linking Central Florida together and eventually connecting with “All Aboard Florida” which will run from Orlando to Miami and South Florida. SunRail is expected to generate over 261,000 jobs and $8.8 billion in economic impact over 30 years. The sun and the economic outlook are shining bright in Orlando.

  6. 6. Quotes from Top 10 Markets Here are a few thoughts from Coldwell Banker Commercial agents on why their market is in the top 10. San Diego, CA San Diego’s economic rebound is surpassing expectations in numerous local markets. Positive trends in unemployment, real estate, tourism and production indicate that the worst of the economic crisis may be over. Downtown is experiencing growth with new high-rise hotels and multifamily developments approved and under construction, along with the $12.8 million expansion project scheduled for Horton Plaza with completion in 2015. Leading the San Diego recovery is the tourism industry, which employs over 160,000 people throughout the County. San Diego is one of the top tourist destinations in Southern California and hosts 32 million visitors each year, generating more than $8 billion annually, which translates to an economic impact of over $18.3 billion dollars generated for the regional economy. Housing prices have increased 10%in the last year and the unemployment rate is holding steady at 7.4%, lower than the State average of 8.9% Brandon Sudweeks, CCIM, Coldwell Banker Commercial Sudweeks Group, San Diego, CA Minneapolis, MN Minneapolis is a city with much opportunity and a city that strives to be a leader in new health solutions, technologies, entertainment, and up-and-coming trends. Because of this, our market is appealing to businesses and families alike. Minneapolis holds 3 professional sports teams, a prominent downtown business college, major corporate offices such as Target Corp. and US Bank, and many present and future construction developments for both residential and commercial. With this brings a steady flow of new jobs, new housing opportunities and new business opportunities. The city’s highly-educated and culturally connected workforce also create much business success. Despite the largeness of Minneapolis as a city, there still tends to be an atmosphere of camaraderie in supporting local businesses and teaming together to make our community better as a whole both economically and socially. Minneapolis’ bordering “twin” city, St. Paul, also brings a wealth of business and opportunities. The Twin Cities together house 19 Fortune 500 Cos., 4 professional sports teams, and many major downtown companies such as those stated above for Minneapolis specific and Ecolab and Securian Financial in St. Paul.

  8. 8. Rebuttals from Bottom Markets With any survey, the results will depend on what variables you look at and how you look at them. That’s why we gave a few markets ranked in the bottom 10 a chance to talk about the positives in their market. New Orleans, LA By almost all accounts, Greater New Orleans is a great place to do business. In economic development, we are at the highest point, in every economic ranking, in our history. Greater New Orleans was recently ranked #2 “Boomtown in America”, due to population and GDP growth. Just last week, the region was ranked #6 for creating middle-income jobs in the USA by Forbes. Encouragingly, talented people are voting with their feet, choosing this region to build a career and start a family. In fact, Louisiana has enjoyed five straight years of net in-migration for the first time in decades, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. New Orleans grew faster than any other major U.S. city in the 15 months after the 2010 decennial headcount. And as more and more people make New Orleans their home, their talents come with them, evidenced by the city's No. 1 ranking on the list of "America's Biggest Brain Magnets" for attracting people under 25 with college degrees, according to Forbes. Mark Inman, CCIM, Coldwell Banker Commercial TEC, New Orleans, LA Birmingham, AL Birmingham has the following positives: UAB Medical Center, University and Medical School continues to grow, growing employment and bringing medical research dollars to the economy. Birmingham is a regional retail center offering retail goods and services for Central Alabama. The Birmingham MSA offers shopping choices only found in Birmingham for most of the State's residence, supporting expansion of retail goods and services. Political structure of the MSA creates competition between Cities in the MSA for new development, encouraging more public / private investments. Birmingham's CBD is going through a renaissance with new development in sports, office, retail and residential development. Birmingham is the interchange center of four major interstates connecting it to major cites in Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi and Florida, coupled with multiple converging rail lines makes the MSA an excellent distribution center. Birmingham is a solid community with a great infrastructure designed for growth. Wesley Cline, CCIM, Coldwell Banker Commercial Moore Company Realty, Birmingham, AL Chicago, IL Chicago is one of most dynamic cities in the world. Chicago has a population of 9.5 million people, 4 million culturally diverse employees and 265,000 businesses. It has over 400 major corporate headquarters including 29 Fortune 500 companies. Chicago is a leader in a number of key industries including: Business & Financial Services, Manufacturing, Information Technology, Health Services and Transportation & Distribution, and is a global leader in options, futures and derivatives trading. The commercial real estate market is also one of the largest and most active in the world. The industrial market consists of 1.15 billion SF of space with only an 8.8% vacancy rate. The office market consists of 460 million SF with a current vacancy of 14.1%. The retail market consists of 262 million SF with a vacancy of only 7.1%.

  11. 11. Top 5 Ranked Office Markets Orange County, CA Reis’s data show the Orange County general purpose, multi-tenant office market in the throes of a substantial recovery. While still elevated relative to pre-recession levels, the vacancy rate is declining amid strong absorption and minimal speculative development. And while current average lease rates remain well below those seen prior to the downturn, growth, albeit in modest proportion, has returned to rents. The market’s Achilles heel in the recent downturn was the large mortgage industry tenant base, which led the sector’s decline during the recession. The wound has healed: strength in the mortgage sector, reflecting the housing rebound, has been a factor in the market’s turnaround. Leasing has been strong and absorption numbers have been high. 1 YTD $1.1 billion in sales 55 Transactions2 San Jose, CA Reflecting the strong local economy and the expanding high technology Business sector, the Silicon Valley general purpose, multitenant office market shows considerable strength. Demand has been strong; a new development cycle is underway. By Reis’s count, net absorption through the first half of the year accompanied by 817,000 SF of new supply was 766,000 SF. While still elevated, vacancy has been declining persuasively. The rate for the second quarter was 18.8%, down 30 basis points for the period, down 110 year-over-year. The positive performance seen in July-August took 20 additional points from the rate. On the other hand, major employers such as Google, Apple and Salesforce have already taken space sufficient to accommodate several years of growth. Rents are high; growth has been strong. At $31.45 psf, second quarter asking averages were up 1.6% each for the period following gains of about 1.0% in the first quarter. Ranked the #2 market in this survey for rate change. A rapid depletion of Class A blocks of space over the last 24 months encourages development. 1 YTD $2.3 billion in sales 67 Transactions2 Denver, CO According to Reis, 2013 was “a break out year” for the Denver area office market, citing the strong local economy, rising rents, and the return of construction. Leasing has “returned to normal”—“normal” being pre-recession activity levels. In addition, several sources report increasing employment in office-using sectors. Net absorption has been strongly positive since 2011, the vacancy rate has fallen to its lowest point since early 2009, and rates of rent growth, albeit gradually, are increasing. Led by downtown Denver and areas on its periphery, moreover, substantial volumes of new office space were under construction and planned per the date of this report. While most of the current building activity is build-to-suit, speculative development, following a prolonged absence, is beginning to reappear. While a deluge of supply is not expected, spec construction should be a visible trend in the period ahead. Investment, charged by several major recent sales, has been very strong in recent quarters. 1 YTD $1.7 billion in sales 79 Transactions2 Charleston, SC The Charleston area market grows tighter. Absorption has remained positive because there is a diminishing availability of quality space. By Reis’s count, second quarter vacancy was 15.6%, down 100 basis points for the period, down 180 year-over-year. The Class A rate, however, was considerably lower at 13.0%, a decline of fully 260 basis points for the quarter alone, a loss of 350 yearover-year. This was the #1 ranked market in this survey for change in vacancy for office. The volume of vacant Class A space had shrunk to only 551,000 SF by the end of the quarter. Absorption, accordingly, is dominated by this sector. With no space completing construction through the first half of the year, total metro area net absorption was counted by Reis at 96,000 SF. The Class A total was 117,000. Technology continued to be the primary driver of tenant demand Boeing has purchased the 178,000 SF Applied Technology Research Center for expansion, thus displacing The South Carolina Research Authority which will be relocating its headquarters to Mead Westvaco’s 4,500-acre Nexton mixed-use development in Summerville for a 75,000 SF built-to-suit.1 New York, NY The 354-million-SF general purpose, multi-tenant Manhattan office is a moderate success by the standards of the past, but in a boom mode by the standards of the present. Despite the completion of extensive new space the vacancy rate remained in the single digits in the third quarter of 2013, and rents increased at about the same pace as has been common since the recovery began in 2011. What is most encouraging is that the office market is solid even though the city’s leading sector—finance—continues to downsize. Reis predicts that 17.5 million SF of new space will be added within its Manhattan submarkets from 2013 to 2017. While that would constitute the largest building boom since the 1980s, it would only restore the size of the inventory to its level during the mid-1990s, and even then only if there are no more office-to-residential or hotel conversions. 1 YTD $16.4 billion in sales 148 Transactions2 Sources: 1-Reis; 2-Real Capital Analytics

  16. 16. Top 5 Ranked Retail Markets Hartford, CT The 14.5-million SF Hartford MSA community-neighborhood shopping center market continued to benefit from incremental improvement through two-thirds of 2013. No space of this type has completed construction within Reis submarkets since 2010, and none is under construction. With net absorption at 73,000 SF for 2013 through August, the vacancy rate is down 50 basis points year-to date to 9.5%. The average asking rent increased 0.6% in the second quarter to $17.55 psf. This was the #2 ranked market for rate increase. Additional increases through August brought the gain to 1.1% asking year-to-date. Reis reports a vacancy rate of 6.4% for power centers, down 30 basis points from the prior quarter and 140 from a year earlier. The average asking rent for power centers is $22.31 psf, up 0.5% for the quarter and 2.2% year-over-year.1 $248 million in sales 8 Transactions2 Orlando, FL The sharp recession related cutbacks in residential construction and the collapse of the housing market brought a period of difficulty to the local retail real estate market. Vacancy in the community-neighborhood shopping center retail sector, which peaked at 14.0% as recently as the third quarter of 2012, has only recently begun to subside. By the end of the second quarter of 2013 the level had dropped to 13.1%, a loss of 50 basis points for the quarter alone, a decline of 80 since year-end. This made Orlando the #2 market in % drop in Vacancy. The source of the progress in occupancy since last year was the persistence of positive net absorption in the presence of no new supply deliveries. The absorption total for the first half of 2013 was 252,000 SF. The total for the second quarter alone was 170,000 SF. Growth, at last, has returned to average rents. At $17.62 psf asking averages for the second quarter were up 0.6% for the period following gains of 1.0% for each rate the quarter before. Recent construction, meanwhile, has been dominated by small neighborhood center projects. As of mid-year, Reis was reporting 4.9 million SF of retail space in the planned-proposed pipeline across all product categories.1 $687 million in sales 53 Transactions2 Austin, TX Vacancy is leveling off at a moderate level in Austin’s 20.7-million-SF community-neighborhood shopping center market, but rent gains remain modest. The rate was 6.7% during the second quarter, down 20 basis points for the period as net absorption totaled 81,000 SF and two neighborhood center projects added 58,000 SF within Reis submarkets. After a flat first quarter, rents increased 0.7% in the second quarter. The second quarter asking average was $20.44 psf. Community-neighborhood center development is expected to remain limited, as there is no space currently under construction. Rent gains, however, are expected to pick up. Big-box and mixed-use developments are all the rage in Austin retail. The latest new construction data show three power center projects under construction with 1.9 million SF, three mixed-use projects with 883,400 SF of retail, and three freestanding stores totaling 314,700 SF. For power centers, Reis reports a relatively high second quarter vacancy rate of 7.6%, down 120 basis points from the prior quarter and 100 from a year earlier. The average asking rent for power centers is $24.34 psf, up 0.4% for the quarter and 0.6% from a year earlier. 1 $442 million in sales 33 Transactions2 Minneapolis, MN The 33.6-million SF Minneapolis community neighborhood shopping center market is in balance as of mid-2013, but only due to a near absence of new supply. The vacancy rate fell 20 basis points to 11.1% in the second quarter, when year-to-date net absorption reached 164,000 SF. The 10,800-SF Crossroads Plaza neighborhood center completed construction in Hopkins in April, leaving 213,700 SF of community-neighborhood center space under construction in six projects. The average asking rent increased 0.3% during the quarter, to $17.80 psf. The rate is forecast at 10.8% at year-end 2013, down 70 basis points over the year. 1 $612 million in sales 43 Transactions2 Fort Worth, TX The 28.5-million SF Fort Worth community-neighborhood shopping center market enjoyed positive trends in the first half of 2013, despite competition from the big-box sector. The second quarter 2013 vacancy rate was 12.0%, down 60 basis points from the end of 2012 on 179,000 SF of net absorption and no new supply. The second quarter saw community-neighborhood center rents rise up 0.8%, to $14.51 psf asking, an unusually large quarterly increase. Rents had increased just 1.0% asking during all of 2012. Reis, however, expects the vacancy rate to fall to 11.7% by the end of 2013, with rent gains coming in at 1.5% asking for the year. The power center vacancy rate is 6.2% for the second quarter of 2013, down 80 basis points from the prior quarter and 180 from a year earlier, so the big- box segment is starting to get tight.1 Sources: 1-Reis; 2-Real Capital Analytics

  21. 21. Top 5 Ranked Multi-Family Markets Oakland-East Bay, CA Vacancy is rock bottom and falling in the 146,345-unit Oakland- East Bay apartment. The second quarter vacancy rate was 2.8%, down 10 basis points from the prior quarter. The Class A vacancy rate was tight at 3.3% but up 10 basis points for the second quarter, while the Class B/C segment was tighter at 2.5%, down 20 basis points. More than two-thirds of the inventory is Class B/C, and the Class B/C inventory fell 101 units in the second quarter due to conversion. Net absorption and new supply year-to-date through that month were 609 units and zero. Reis reports 2,066 units under construction. Rent gains are slowing despite slow vacancy. During the second quarter of 2013 the average asking rent rose 0.7% to $1,450 per month. 1 Greenville, SC Vacancy is low and rent gains are accelerating in the 34,530-unit Greenville area apartment market. The third quarter vacancy rate is 4.5%, unchanged from the second quarter but down 40 basis points from the fourth quarter of 2012. Vacancy held steady despite the completion of three projects with 850 units during the third quarter: the 346-unit The Aventine at Greenville, the 260-unit Springs at Greenville, and the 244-unit The Vinings at Icar Apartments, all located in the South Greenfield submarket. Prior to that surge of new supply, the second quarter vacancy rate for Class A space was 4.7%, down from 5.6% a year earlier. Class B/C vacancy was 4.2%, down 120 basis points. New supply is forecast to slow after the banner year of 2013, with an average of just 314 new units per year from 2014 to 2017, but net absorption is forecast to slow as well. New units pushed up the average asking rent, which increased 1.7% during the third quarter to $696 per month. That was a gain of 2.7% for the first three quarters of 2013 combined. 1 San Diego, CA The 181,326-unit market-rate, investment-grade San Diego apartment market continues to experience extremely low vacancy and solid quarterly rental growth. San Diego’s third quarter 2013 vacancy rate was 2.3%, according to Reis, down 20 basis points from the prior quarter and down 70 from 12 months earlier. Vacancy averaged 3.8% from 2008 to 2012, so this market is extremely tight. Vacancy rates at or below 5.0% are generally considered to indicate a full market. San Diego has one of the highest occupancy rates in the country, at 97.7%. San Diego has the fifth highest concentration of people between the ages of 25 to 35 (largest renter age cohort) in the country, over 484,000 total. Today, nearly half of the households in San Diego county are renting. The third quarter saw 283 units of net absorption, Reis reports, a healthy figure which brings the year-to-date total to 1,238. The net absorption total for 2012 was 1,584 units, so 2013 is shaping up as a strong year for demand. Third quarter rent gains were substantial once again, and year over-year gains were also strong, according to Reis. The average asking rent increased 0.7% to $1,430 per month. The year-over-year gains are 2.7%.1 $1.3 billion in sales 86 Transactions2 Houston, TX An avalanche of new supply is descending on the Houston apartment sector as the market, free of impediments due to the recession and riding on the back of robust economic and demographic trends, moves into a defining phase of its new cycle. Indeed, more than 4,300 market-rate apartments completed construction metrowide year-to-date as of mid-August even as some 15,500 others remained under construction, a large portion of which will arrive on line by the end of the year in a rapidly accelerating succession of deliveries. Demand, a driving factor, remains strong. While robust development and leasing activities are indicated for much of the metro area, the Energy Corridor on the west side (and west side submarkets generally), home to much of Houston’s oil and gas business, will see the highest activity levels. The vacancy rate reached its cyclical peak at 12.9% during the first quarter of 2010. At that point, a robust recovery commenced. It led, before long, to the heated expansion cycle now underway. Vacancy tells the tale: by the end of the latest quarter the rate had descended to 6.6%, a decline of 20 basis points for the period, a loss of 110 year-over-year. Moderately positive in 2010, a little slower in 2011, rent growth soared in 2012 with gains of 4.7% indicated for the asking averages. 1 $3.5 billion in sales 170 Transactions2 Cincinnati, OH The Vacancy in the 106,296-unit Cincinnati apartment market posted another drop in the second quarter, falling 30 basis points to 3.5%. That rate is down 120 basis points from 12 months earlier. Class A vacancy finished the quarter at 3.3%, down 40 basis points over the quarter, while Class B/C vacancy was 3.6%, down 30 basis points from the prior quarter. Cincinnati is still a very tight multifamily market, with net absorption running ahead of demand. From 2008 to 2012, about 2,500 units were completed, but net absorption was over 5,000 during that time span. Reis’s latest construction data lists 592 units completing in five projects so far in 2013, with net absorption at 994 units. Vacancy is forecast to finish 2013 at 3.4%. Reis reports second quarter average asking rents of $754 per month, up 0.5% for the quarter, and up 2.2% over 12 months.1 $156 million in sales 13 Transactions2 Sources: 1-Reis; 2-Real Capital Analytics
