miami industrial real estate market stats 3rd quarter 2015

Summer seasons are typically slow in Miami, however the Miami industrial real estate market experienced an increase in the average lease rate to $8.77 per sq. ft. and a decrease in vacancy to 4.7%. Over 3M sq. ft. has been absorbed this year with one more quarter to go. At this pace, we might break the 4M sq. ft. mark by year-end which would be extremely impressive especially given the new deliveries. On a side note, it is also amazing that we have had ten consecutive years without a major hurricane making landfall. “October – all over” as we often say.

Here’s an old time saying by Florida fishermen on hurricane season: “June – too soon. July – stand by. August – look out you must. September – remember. October – all over.”
