Commercial Real Estate Market Reawakens
Article by: Amos Maki, The Daily News
After suffering through a prolonged slump, the Memphis commercial real estate market this year began to shake off the rust that gathered during the “Great Recession,” and brighter days could be ahead for the prime markets in the apartment, retail, office and industrial sectors, according to local experts.
However, to make sure the commercial real estate market continues its rebound, civic and business leaders must maintain a laser focus on job creation.
Those themes emerged during the 2013 Commercial Real Estate Review & Forecast hosted by The Daily News on Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art.

We have recently received several new address assignment plats from MLG&W for new single family and multi-family developments indicating that the new housing market is coming back to life. We haven’t seen this much activity since the crash of the housing market in 2007
when new construction came to a screeching halt.
Address assignment plats issued by MLG&W are one of the first indications of new developments starting to take shape. Once developers are able to get address assignments through MLG&W for new lots or units, they can move forward on filing final recorded subdivision plats with the Shelby County Registers Office and start pulling building permits for new construction.
Following are some of the new subdivision plats that have been issued:
- Criss Cross Village Phase 2 (Collierville) – 10 Lots
- Windsor Place Phase 3 (Arlington) – 29 Lots
- Enclave Phase 5 (Germantown) – 41 Lots
- Twinings of Collierville (Collierville) – 9 Lots
- Rolling Meadows Phase 3 (Collierville) – 16 Lots
- The Villages at Porter Farms Phase 8 (Collierville) – 11 Lots
We have received additional plats for 4 apartment complexes including South Junction Apartments and Harbor Island in downtown Memphis.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information about these plats or to register to receive new building permits as they are filed for the development of these subdivisions.

With Shelby County’s new housing market recovery steadily underway at the mid-year mark, we continue to see new home prices rise with this year’s 2nd quarter new home sale prices averaging $257,931 making this the highest 2nd quarter sale price we’ve seen since 2008 when the average new home sale price was $280,372.
This year’s average new home sale price is a 6% jump over 2012’s second quarter average price of $243,677. During this year’s second quarter we also saw new home sales jump by 17% with 260 new home sales compared to 223 sales during 2012’s second quarter.
This is the most new home sales we’ve seen since 2nd quarter 2010. New home starts remained steady with 269 starts during 2013’s second quarter unchanged from 269 starts during 2012’s second quarter. Regency Homes continues to be Shelby County’s top builder with 65 new home starts and 58 new home sales during this year’s second quarter.
With sales outpacing new home starts for the quarter, we saw a slight 2% drop in unsold inventory with 870 houses in inventory as of 6/30/2013, compared to 887 houses as of 6/30/2012. The current unsold inventory accounts for 3.3 quarters, or 11.1 months, supply of new housing. At the end of last year’s second quarter, there were 4 quarters, or 13.1 months, supply of new housing.
As the new housing market continues to push forward there is some growing concern among local builders over the current lot supply within Shelby County which has continued to dwindle over the last 7 years slowly pushing up lot prices and in turn continuing to push up new home prices affecting the affordability of new homes in the county. At the end of this year’s second quarter lot prices averaged $43,079 up 13% from year-end 2012’s average lot price of $38,285. This is something builders will continue to keep a close eye on going forward. With increasing lot prices and the dwindling supply, we will likely see new home prices continue to rise through out the remainder of the year.
