As the data on supply and demand indicate, both the San Jose warehouse/distribution and Flex/R&D markets are tightening. Third quarter 2017 vacancy in the former was 7.9%, down 50 basis points for the period and down 100 year-to-date following a loss of fully 320 through 2016. The negative net absorption indicated for the next two months raised vacancy 2 points. Rent growth in the warehouse/distribution market has been increasing yearly since 2013. At $7.79 psf and $7.16 psf, quite high by national norms for this product type, average asking and effective lease rates for the third quarter were up 3.3% and 3.6% year-to-date following increases of 4.7% and 5.0% through 2016. Gains for the third quarter alone were 1.2% and 1.4% to which October-November added increases of 1.0% and 1.1%.
