Top Markets for Office Investment Sales in 2022

Which markets saw the highest office investment volumes in the first three quarters of the year?

While the office sector continues to face some challenges from a slower than expected return to the office post-pandemic and an uncertain outlook for the economy, investors have continued to bet money on office assets throughout the country.

Data firm Yardi Matrix estimates that through the first three quarters of 2022, office investment sales totaled $69.3 billion. Research firm MSCI Real Assets estimates that office investment sales volume trended even higher through the first three quarters of the year, reaching $88.5 billion, just one percent off the figure reported for the same period in 2021.

A recent National Office Report from Yardi Matrix takes a look at the markets that saw the highest office transaction volumes year-to-date. Other findings in the third quarter report showed that average full-service equivalent listing rates for leases was $37.67 per sq. ft. in September, down 2.4 percent year-over-year. And that the national vacancy rate reached 16.6 percent, up 180 basis points over September 2021. In addition, nationally, 139.1 million sq. ft. of new office supply is currently under construction.

In the following gallery, we take a look at the top 10 markets for office investment sales year-to-date, according to Yardi’s figures.
