from Daily Real Estate News via National Association of Realtors®
The U.S. retail real estate market is heating up, with shrinking vacancies allowing landlords to raise rents. At strip malls, vacancies fell to 10.3 percent in the second quarter and are nearly a percentage point lower than a post-recession high set in the third quarter of 2011, according to Reis Inc., a commercial data provider. At traditional malls, vacancies held at 7.9 percent in the second quarter, dropping from a high of 9.4 percent in the third quarter of 2011, according to Reis.
