Toronto SIOR – National Conference
In Toronto the last few days for the Fall SIOR International Conference. Chance to catch up with industrial brokers from throughout the world. Lots of conversation. Much of it…”How’s business”? You can probably guess their responses! BUT, it is clear that, while business hasn’t been all that great this year, an ever growing number of brokers are seeing things pick up. So, while it has been a tough 10 months this year, it does appear that most are feeling good about mid 2010.
Locally, we’re starting to see similar signs as well. While vacancy rates are still high, foot traffic in these buildings is starting to pick up. Next step…we’ll see if the prospective companies are buyers or just shopppers! Time will tell!
