real estate overview - 2nd quarter 2012

Cd. Juárez, Mexico is the largest industrial real estate market along the U.S. / Mexico border with 60.3 MSF. Since 1969 Cd. Juárez has been home to some of the largest manufacturing firms in the world, with a strong presence of automotive, medical, appliance and electronics companies. The Cd. Juárez manufacturing sector continued to recover in the second quarter with increasing production volumes and employment levels.

Growth has been supported by stability within the U.S. economy, the near shoring trend that is bringing back some manufacturing from Southeast Asia to North America and decreasing violence in the U.S. / Mexico border region. Overall there was 949 KSF of gross absorption and 417 KSF of net absorption in the second quarter. The breadth of demand along with positive employment figures within the maquiladora industry are signals that the local economy may be starting a transition towards recovery.
