Report | Office Investment Outlook - Q2 2016
With heightened macro market volatility and following six consecutive years of volume gains, office investment sale volumes decreased in the first half of 2016 by 6.4 percent, though this was from a high base and the peak of the current cycle. The first two quarters saw $67.2 billion of office activity compared to $71.8 billion at this time last year. After the continued expansion into secondary markets over the last two years, volumes are moving back toward primary markets and lower risk submarkets, evidence of an increased focus on risk mitigation. Looking forward, year-end transaction volumes are expected to decline between 10.0 and 15.0 percent, a function of declining single asset activity. Large portfolio activity remains strong and on par with 2015 levels.
