Swisher Commercial, AA Spark host Ann Arbor’s first Commercial Real Estate Trends Symposium

Join Swisher Commercial and Ann Arbor SPARK for a lively discussion on commercial real estate and economic trends in the Ann Arbor region on Jan. 8, 2020, at the U-M Golf Course Clubhouse. The program features a keynote presentation by Don Grimes, Regional Economic Specialist for the University of Michigan’s Research Seminar in Quantitative Economics.

Swisher Commercial, author of the annual Ann Arbor Vacancy Report since 1992, will also discuss commercial real estate trends in the Ann Arbor region.

About the Ann Arbor Vacancy Report: The Swisher Commercial Ann Arbor Area Vacancy report has been issued since 1992 and 2020 marks the 28th annual survey of vacancy rates for office and flex space in the Ann Arbor area. Swisher brokers personally surveyed over 300 buildings of 5,000 square feet (sf) or larger, totaling over 12,000,000 sf. The report includes a breakdown of vacancy rates by sub-market and charts the vacancy trends over the last 28 years. We hope this report will help you better understand the current market and assist in planning your commercial real estate decisions.
