The Fort Worth Business Press obtains some of its Real Deals content through a partnership with Xceligent Inc., a commercial real estate research firm. Report: DFW commercial real estate on upswing Ongoing economic expansion and job growth continue to fuel commercial real estate growth throughout Dallas-Fort Worth, according to CBRE Group Inc. With a steady influx of companies, Texas represents about 30 percent of the nation’s payroll job growth in the past decade, according to Sara Rutledge, CBRE director of research and analysis for Texas, who shared her perspective at the real estate firm’s recent 2015 market forecast in Dallas. According to Rutledge and other CBRE representatives who spoke at the event, the Dallas-Fort Worth region will see a strong supply of new development, positive leasing demand and strong capital markets activity for the foreseeable future. “Dallas-Fort Worth saw the highest number of office-using companies expanding and/or relocating in Texas between 2010 and Q2 2014, totaling 106 companies taking 12.5 million square feet,” Rutledge said. Other predictions from her presentation included: • The combination of strong current occupancy and healthy demand is expected to support rising rental growth across all Dallas-Fort Worth property types. • Demand for office and retail space is expected to accelerate, while tight availability could moderate industrial demand until new construction delivers; and demand for multifamily housing may also moderate as its recovery matures. • Local cap rates should be somewhat insulated from a potential rise in interest rates, thanks to the positive outlook for fundamentals. CBRE Group Inc., a commercial real estate services and investment firm, serves real estate owners, investors and occupiers through about 350 offices worldwide.
