Findings in Spring 2017 Southeast US Market Report Available Online

Orlando, Fla. (February 13, 2017) – Crossman & Company, one of the Southeast’s largest retail leasing, property management, and investment sales firms, has just released its much-anticipated Spring 2017 Southeast US Market Report on Retail Real Estate.

“This report is the result of a considerable amount of effort from our research department and the many outstanding relationships that we enjoy throughout the country. Our partnerships with universities, trade organizations and many industry leaders lend a unique and dynamic perspective to this in-depth report,” said Crossman & Company President John Crossman, CCIM, CRX.

The insightful report begins with exploring key topics in the retail industry: an interview with Ross Cooper, Chief Investment Officer with Kimmo Realty, followed by editorial articles on capital markets, retail in Florida, and trends shaping 2017.

After the editorial articles, Crossman & Company identified the 37 of the top markets in the Southeast. Of those 37, they took an in-depth look at the five investment grade markets; the result is called the “Top 5 Deep Dive.”

In addition to reporting fundamental market metrics, Crossman & Company highlights major developments, touches on tenant activity, and updates on the infrastructure of the biggest metropolitan areas in the Southeast: Atlanta, Charlotte, Miami-Dade County, Orlando, and Tampa.

The remaining 32 markets are grouped by state, and the states are listed alphabetically. Crossman & Company organized data from a variety of sources and reported them in an easy-to-navigate infographic, with quotes from industry leaders in those markets. The report offers numerous insights into retail real estate trends.

“One of the interesting insights found that as conventional retailers embrace an online presence, E-retailers are recognizing the advantages brick and mortar provides in the customer experience. The convergence has led to increased demand for space in well-positioned malls and lifestyle / entertainment centers, especially within the urban core,” noted Chandan Economics Analyst, Jonathan O’Kane in the capital markets op-ed.

Crossman & Company is a premier real estate firm with offices in Atlanta, Ga., Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Boca Raton, Fla. focused on serving retail landlords exclusively throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
