Today’s Favorable Tenant Office Market

John P. Hannigan

March 27, 2023

The commercial real estate market is currently offering excellent opportunities for companies with leases expiring in 2023, 2024, and some in 2025. Negotiated net rental rates are 15-to-30 percent below the asking rent, and landlords are becoming more flexible in signing long-term or short-term leases while providing significant free rent, tenant improvement allowances, and options to expand, renew, cancel or downsize. Subleasing also provides an attractive alternative, thanks to its low rental rate and free furniture, making it the perfect time for companies to lower their costs, upgrade their space and/or location, and make their office lease flexible to meet a changing future.
