Tampa - St. Petersburg

The Tampa apartment market vacancy rate closed 2017 at just 4.5%, a gain of 40 basis points for the year following 2016’s 30-basis-points increase. The fourth quarter alone, meanwhile, saw 952 units deliver and 1,112 absorbed net as the vacancy rate shed 10 basis points. Although slowing somewhat in 2017, rates of rent growth remained substantial. At $1,065 and $1,014 per month, fourth quarter asking and effective averages were up 4.6% and 3.6% for the year following increases of 5.1% for both in 2016—after similarly strong growth rates in 2015. Gains for the fourth quarter alone were 0.7%. Data for the market as a whole for January 2018 show no new construction completions and negligible net absorption, an essentially flat vacancy curve, and growth rates of 0.5% for both average rents.
TampaÂ’s warehouse/distribution vacancy rate, declining over the past few years, leveled off in 2017 but is quite low by national norms for this property type. At 7.7%, the fourth quarter rate was unchanged for the period and unchanged overall for the year following a decline by 70 basis points in 2016. With no space delivering in January 2018, alongside modest net absorption, the rate remained unaffected. A notable acceleration in rent growth in 2016 was followed by another in 2017. At $5.33 psf and $4.88 psf, fourth quarter average asking and effective rates represented gains of 3.5% and 4.1% for the year following increases of 3.0% and 3.3% in 2016. Gains for the fourth quarter alone were 0.9% and 1.2%, to which January 2018 added a flat performance for the asking average and a 0.2% loss for the effective rate.
Vacancy in the Tampa general purpose, multi-tenant office market ended 2017 at 17.1%, down fully 60 basis points since the third quarter alone and down 170 for the year following a loss of 200 over the preceding two. Rates of rent growth, increasing in 2014 and 2015, slowed slightly the year after but picked up again in 2017. At $23.46 psf and $19.01 psf, fourth quarter average asking and effective rates were up 3.0% and 3.4% for the year. Gains for the fourth quarter alone were 1.5% and 1.7%. January 2018 followed with 68,000 square feet of net absorption alongside no supply deliveries, a decline in the vacancy rate to 16.9%, and gains of a penny each for the mean asking and effective rents.
Vacancy in the Tampa community-neighborhood center shopping market ended the year at 10.6%, up 40 basis points since the third quarter but down 20 for the year following a 30-basis-points increase in 2016. January 2018 followed with a 20-basis-points decline. Rent growth in this sector slowed markedly in 2017. At $15.91 psf and $14.01 psf, fourth quarter asking and effective average rents were up just 1.4% each for the year after gains of fully 4.0% and 4.2% in 2016. Gains for the fourth quarter of 2017 alone were only 0.1% apiece. Losses of 0.1% followed in January 2018.
