Continued job creation bolsters household formations and supports space demand for commercial real estate, according to a recent report by Marcus & Millichap. Moreover, year-to-date employment growth signals economic acceleration as employment additions in the first four months of 2018 outpaced the previous two years over the same time frame, with 799,000 jobs added. The quickened pace of job growth should accelerate commercial real estate demand across all sectors, as companies expand payrolls and operations. The industry as a whole has been robust in recent years and this news bodes well for continued positive activity.—Lisa Brown
