Written by Gerard Staudt in category 

The four main sectors of the Commercial Real Estate industry are expected to see different levels of growth/decline in 2018. After a long economic expansion, Colliers International predicts the market hit its peak in 2017. According to economists, numerous factors indicate that the market should expect a slow decline in the upcoming year, but they are “not ready to pronounce an end to this economic expansion.”

Sector Predictions

Office: Slow and steady growth as the sector balances new supply levels, occupancy rates, and asking rents.

Multifamily: Decline due to slow wage growth, declining consumer confidence, and a  surplus of apartment complexes.

Industrial: Remain a star performer due to increased demand for warehouse and distribution centers

Retail: Continue to decline due to heavy levels of store closures
