Real estate research and consulting services provider Kingsley Associates reports that as of the end of 2012, commercial tenants are more satisfied now than ever with their properties. And this happiness is not confined to a single area of commercial real estate—the trend across four years shows that those renting space in the office, industrial, retail, and medical office sectors are increasingly content with their properties. In addition, tenants have reported an increase in renewal intention alongside elevated satisfaction with their property management and perceived value in relation to amount paid.
The medical office sector showed the biggest jump in satisfaction from 2011 to 2012, moving from 74.1% to 84.8%. And while the office sector showed the smallest increase (from 85.1% to 87.7%), it maintains the highest overall percentage of satisfaction among the four divisions. The remaining two sectors, though, are not far behind: industrial and retail tenants recorded 81.6% and 70.7% satisfaction rates, respectively.
Major contributors to the happiness and satisfaction of tenants, security and surveillance are of the utmost importance for commercial property owners of all kinds, from apartment complexes to office buildings to shopping centers. When clients and customers of a business feel secure, they are more likely to continue patronizing that business, thus making the commercial tenants themselves happier with their location.
