north carolina commercial real estate news

The North Carolina commercial real estate market has done a fine job of weathering the last few years of upheaval. In fact, demand for commercial real estate in the Triangle remains strong despite the economic fallout from COVID-19, which has hit many businesses and led to many firms embracing work-from-home strategies. 

Some of the reasons for this include companies attempting to locate offices further away from dense urban areas in avoidance of pandemic worries, as well as costs and talent. 

To further examine the region, APG Advisors has compiled some of the commercial real estate news highlights and attention-grabbing headlines around Raleigh-Durham in order to shine a light on the current state of the North Carolina real estate market.
