Atlanta, GA

Apartment
The Atlanta apartment market vacancy rate ended the first quarter of 2019 at 4.9%, same as a quarter earlier after 2018Â’s 40-basis-points increase. At $1,226 and $1,150 per month, asking and effective averages were up just 0.6% each for the period, the smallest single-quarter growth rates seen here since the third of 2011, when the market was still freeing itself of recession effects. Gains for the year as calculated by Reis were 6.6% and 7.5%, respectively, for the asking and effective averages. VIEW APARTMENT LISTINGS >
Industrial
The Atlanta area warehouse/distribution space vacancy rate closed 2018 at 11.2%, up 90 basis points from a year earlier. By the end of the first quarter of 2019 the rate had declined to 11.0%. Strong rent growth has been a recent trend in the warehouse/distribution market. With net absorption trailing new supply deliveries in 2018, however, growth, while still formidable, slowed somewhat. It was slower still in the first quarter. At $4.22 psf and $3.78 psf, the average asking and effective rates for the quarter were up just 0.2% and 0.3% (one cent each) from the quarter before—following gains of 3.2% and 3.3% through 2018.

Office
After peaking at about 21.0% during 2010, the Atlanta general purpose, multi-tenant office market vacancy rate embarked on a lengthy decline, reaching a cyclical low of 18.0% by the end of 2016. A mild rising trend followed over the next two years. By the end of 2018, the rate was sitting at 19.4%, a gain of 110 basis points for the year on the crest of a strong bout of negative net absorption. The revival of demand in the first quarter of 2019 lowered the rate to 19.1%. After a period of larger gains, rates of rent growth, while still substantial, declined slightly in 2017 and 2018. But the first quarter of 2019 followed with a solid performance. At $25.73 psf and $20.41 psf, mean first quarter asking and effective rates were up 0.8% and 0.9% for the period, following increases of 2.7% each in 2018. VIEW OFFICE LISTINGS >

The rate closed the first quarter of 2019 at 11.5%, up 10 basis points for the period following 2018Â’s overall flat performance. Rent growth rates in the community-neighborhood shopping center market were in the range of 3.0% in 2016, fell to about 2.0% in 2017, and stayed in that range in 2018.
