According to the 12th District Real Estate Conditions report, multi-housing remains the strongest real estate sector in the District, with the sector in the latter stage of the expansion cycle. Residential real estate has picked up strong momentum with sales and prices increasing across most of the District. Growth in the office and industrial sectors has been constrained by the slow economic recovery, although office markets with high concentrations of tech jobs are doing very well.
