What the drop in oil prices means for the economy and office markets

December 15, 2014
Oil prices are below $65 per barrel for the first time since 2009, and energy producers across the globe are starting to panic. Lower prices will likely extend into 2015—bad news for energy companies and the downstream industries that support them, but good news for the U.S. economy and consumers. We expect demand for real estate in the energy markets to weaken. Landlords and developers will feel pressure to secure and retain occupancy. But, the benefit of sustained low oil prices will fuel (pun intended) retail, residential, industrial and office demand across the United States overall.
