- CBRE's 4th Quarter 2009 New Jersey MarketView Report signals a market that appears to have reached bottom -
The New Jersey economy appears to be stabilizing ahead of the national average, and the industrial real estate sector is playing its part in that recovery, finds CB Richard Ellis' Fourth Quarter 2009 New Jersey Industrial MarketView report. Among its findings are that both sales and leasing velocity rose, closing out 2009 with a strong finish, totaling 7.1 million square feet, despite the fact that large blocks of space have made their entrance onto the market, leaving the availability rate at a static 11.7 percent. Still, the newfound steadiness signals the onset of market stability.
