With all the conflicting signals which direction makes sense?
What’s happening with residential and commercial construction in the Atlanta region and what to expect going forward? That’s our task for the day but first, a little bit of history to put things in perspective. Through the nearly 35 years we’ve watched the Atlanta region there has been a tendency for residential to lead commercial construction activity, but not always. At times, new arterial roads and highways become significant growth vectors that lead to commercial activity preceding residential construction. In the classic “build it and they will come” concept that’s all you need, but in practice that does not always work. This was particularly true on the south side of Atlanta where commercial got way ahead of residential construction with dire results for some. Commercial construction pulled way back but did not experience the expected foreclosure cliff forecasted by many pundits. We are still absorbing a lot of properties, even to this day. However, shortages are developing in more than a few geographic areas and a general shortage of land for homebuilding (again in specific areas) is putting some of those old metrics back into play. Commercial is not dead!
Just a quick reminder that DEC International will be closed June 30 through July 6th in order to give our employees time to celecbrate the Holiday with Family and Friends. We will re-open July 7th.
We wish you and yours a happy, healthy and safe Independence Day!
