Market data for Raleigh Durham markets:

Economic improvement attracts new residents and boosts apartment demand. Prior to the health crisis, strong job creation was supporting a consistent rate of net in-migration in Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill.  This influx bolstered the local demand for housing and commercial space. From June to September, the metro’s major employment sectors recorded encouraging hiring activity, recapturing 59,000 positions lost during the early months of the pandemic. This job creation has spurred household relocations and formations that are improving leasing velocity at rental properties. During the third quarter, more than 3,000 units were absorbed, placing vacancy below the metro’s prior five-year average. The reduction in unit availability occurred as nearly 1,700 units were delivered, signaling strong demand for higher-priced rentals prior to another wave of completions.

Construction activity remains heightened. A hotbed for development over the past five years, the metro has recorded an influx of supply additions in 2020 despite the health crisis altering some projects’ timelines. This trend persists in the fourth quarter as 1,300 rentals are slated for completion and office and industrial delivery volumes are both expected to total 1.8 million square feet. Recently strong apartment absorption and month-over-month gains in job creation suggest demand for new rentals will persist, while most office and industrial properties slated for finalization are pre-leased. Additionally, two-thirds of the 600,000 square feet of retail space slated for finalization has lease agreements in place, with most available space located at a mixed-use property in Chapel Hill.

Job loss from the Pandemic is showing signs of recovery:

Metro recovering positions across all employment sectors. Entering October, the Triangle’s diverse collection of employers had recaptured more than 40 percent of the 143,000 positions lost from March to May, lowering unemployment to 5.2 percent. Aided by its well-educated population, professional and business services companies added 8,000 positions from June to September. Additionally, the harder-hit leisure and hospitality, and education and health services industries have recouped between 30 percent and 40 percent of the jobs shed during the initial months of the pandemic. The University of North Carolina and North Carolina State University have announced plans to hold in-person classes.  And allow for on-campus living this spring, which would further improve the outlook for these sectors. However, a fall spike in weekly COVID-19 cases may alter these plans if statewide numbers continue to rise.

Out of towners are coming to Portland for acquisitions:

Out-of-state investors pursue sizable assets and portfolios. Institutional and value-add buyers that venture into tertiary markets have expanded their local holdings or established a footprint in the metro during the health crisis. The Triangle’s number of newly built Class A apartments and 1990s-built Class B assets are attracting East Coast-based buyers willing to accept high-3 percent returns for 100-unit-plus rentals. Higher-quality office buildings comprising more than 100,000 square feet are garnering attention from coastal gateway buyers. Retail-focused investors from outside the Triangle are focusing on assets that have excelled during the pandemic, namely supermarkets, drugstores and discount shops.
