Commercial real estate company combines experience with innovation
Innovation in commercial real estate is on the rise. Individuals throughout the Midlands and beyond are looking to buy, sell, lease, finance and manage commercial property in modern and innovative ways, creating the need for a trusted and experienced firm to guide them.
Innovation is not a new concept in the world of commercial real estate, but what was once a consideration on a property’s annual expense budget is now a mandate. The Midlands is a safe investment, avoiding the troughs of deep recessions yet missing out on the highs of economic peaks. This is due to a significant amount of government activity, a large educational presence, business-friendly regulations and a low cost of living.
The desire to live a suburban lifestyle will likely increase with young professionals and families gravitating to the Midlands. This means that suburban office space will continue its strong growth since the Great Recession. Innovation might be at its greatest in the retail real estate environment, although it will take time to fully understand the impact of COVID-19 on this sector.
The Midlands industrial real estate market should continue its growth and popularity as county governments push incentives and developers produce more quality product to attract large manufacturers and distributors.
The land sector in the Midlands continues to be bold. There is strong demand for land suitable for industrial, retail, medical/assisted living and residential development. Demand for timberland and recreational properties, along with people buying land to build on or as a country estate continues to increase.
