Dear Readers,

What’s your 2017 CRE crystal ball telling you?

Last year this time, responses were generally upbeat and positive for Texas commercial real estate in 2016 with the obvious exception of the Houston commercial real estate market.

According to Rand Stephens & Jeannie Tobin with Avison Young, slow and steady growth is expected this year for the Houston office market. They also speculated that Dallas-Ft Worth, Austin & San Antonio can continue to expect to be a landlord’s market and the industrial market will do well across Texas. (See pages 8 & 9) You can also find CBRE & REOC’s 4Q2016 office & industrial recaps on pages 10, 12,14, & 15. Property taxes continue to be a thorny issue for property owners and it appears it became an even thornier issue for Mitch Zarsky when he appeared for his review hearings at the appraisal district. (see Civil Fair Play on pages 24 & 26) If you’ve had the same experience as Mitch, please contact Senator Paul Bettencourt who heads up the Texas Property Tax Reform & Relief Committee. I hope you have a fabulous February and remember that February 14th is Valentine’s Day! Best Regards,

Forecasting 2017: a preview of what is to come for office and industrial markets BY BRANDI SMITH

“It’s certainly better than it was.” That may not sound like a ringing endorsement, but Rand Stephens, Managing Director and Principal of Avison Young’s Houston office, is hedging his bets after a rough 2016. “Just starting out in January 2016, oil went down to $28 a barrel. There were a lot of gloomy faces in Houston,” he says. “Houston is an incredibly optimistic place, but there is definitely an air of pessimism.” Rand Stephens, Managing Director & Principal of Avison Young’s Houston office

Jeannie Tobin, Avison Young’s Regional Research Director Houston office

Outlook for office The low price of oil prompted corporate mergers, layoffs and, in some cases shutdowns, resulting in skyrocketing office vacancy rates. Per Avison Young’s Office Research Report, 38 million square feet of office space was available in the fourth quarter. Roughly 11.6 million square feet of that was in the form of sublease space. Examples include 262,000 square feet at Energy Center II offered by Worley Parson and another 380,000 square feet left behind by BG Group at 811 Main. “Sublease tends to put downward pressure on the rental rates, but the buildings are still leased and they’re still paying rent,” Stephens says. “A lot of that sublease space is from oil and gas companies in the Energy Corridor.”

Stephens and Jeannie Tobin, Avison Young’s Regional Research Director, both predict slow and steady growth in the Houston office market in 2017. “Going into this year, the construction boom is wrapping up, so we’re going to see less of an impact from new deliveries going forward,” Tobin says. “The outlook is one of guarded optimism,” describes Stephens. He says one signal the Houston office market is turning around will be the shrinking amount of sublease space.

“I do think that sublease space is going to remain high throughout 2017,” Tobin says. “You’re really not going to see it disappear until really the energy market turns around and then it will be slow recovery in 2017.” “It can go away in a hurry. Oil and gas companies can just say, ‘You know what? We’re just taking that off the market. Now we’re going to occupy it,’” says Stephens. “I think we’ll start to see some declines in sublease space and that will be the first indicator that the office market is recovering.” “I do think that sublease space is going to remain high throughout 2017,” Tobin says. “You’re really not going to see it disappear until really the energy market turns around and then it will be slow recovery in 2017.” Stephens says, “Though oil prices still aren’t at the level they were a couple years ago, the energy industry has adjusted and reorganized in a way that will allow positive growth in the year to come.” As much as Houston struggled in 2016, other metro areas of Texas boomed. Avison Young expects that growth to continue.

In mid-2016, as total available space reached the highest rate recorded in the past two decades, new deliveries also flooded the already saturated market.

“Dallas, Austin and San Antonio have excellent economies,” Stephens says. “Dallas has one of the best in the country and so does Austin.”

“I would say that we bottomed out,” Stephens says.

The Metroplex, for example, saw its office vacancy rates drop to 14.7 percent and net absorption reach 1.6 million square feet by the end of 2016. Avison Young predicts vacancy rates will hold around 14.3 percent in 2017.

In Q3 alone, Houston saw more than a million square feet added via projects including BHP Headquarters (560,000 square feet), West Memorial Place II (385,532 square feet) and Wildwood Corporate Centre II (201,618 square feet). Stephens, though, says it could have been worse. “After the Great Recession, acquisitions and development have been underwritten and financed much more conservatively,” he says. “That conservative financing really gives owners and investors sustaining power that they need when you hit a downturn.”

“Dallas is a very attractive place for investors right now because it’s established itself as a place that avoids the boom and bust behavior and also shows years of substantial growth,” says Tobin. The company’s North America, UK and Germany Forecast says, “Many large tenants are opting to expand into new space in an effort to attract and retain a talented workforce. The space left behind is quickly being backfilled, causing vacancy to remain relatively stable even as new


construction continues to be delivered to the market.” “Highly landlord-favorable” is how Avison Young describes Austin. The third quarter of 2016 saw the Texas capital rebound into positive absorption with a vacancy rate hovering around 8.5 percent. “Should tightening occupancy carry through 2017, rental rates and new construction are expected to sustain year-over-year growth,” the Forecast reads, predicting office vacancy to increase to 10.8 percent in 2017. San Antonio celebrated similar growth: decreasing vacancy rates (9.1 percent) and increasing absorption (roughly 700,000 square feet). In 2017, Frost Tower, the city’s first new high-rise building in 30 years is expected to break ground and Avison Young reports 250,000 square feet of the tower have already been preleased. “The new tower could mark the beginning of the revitalization of San Antonio’s urban core,” the 2017 Forecast says. Outlook for industrial While Houston’s west side took a hard hit in the office sector, industrial development on the east side took off. “There are a lot of companies that are here because they buy chemicals and they buy refined products that they use in manufacturing. They’re here to buy those raw materials, make something, then ship it out around the world,” Stephens says. “Those kinds of companies have been doing great because cost of their raw materials are down.” Proof is in the numbers: though 13.9 million square feet of industrial space (including Daikin’s 3.9-million square foot manufacturing campus) was delivered in 2016, the market has maintained a 95 percent occupancy rate. In 2016, more than 8.7 million square feet of industrial was absorbed. “The industrial market has done incredibly well over the last couple years,” says Stephens. “We’ve seen great opportunities on the east side of Houston. A lot of our clients who are third-party logistics companies have expanded to accommodate the growth.” Sublease space is also an issue when it comes to industrial. In fact, Avison Young

reports the amount available more than doubled from 2.4 million square feet in Q4 2015 to 5.2 million square feet in Q4 2016, though the most of that space is in North or Northwest Houston.

The industrial market is doing well across the state of Texas as population growth continues at a record pace. “There are some pockets of the industrial market that are struggling and will take a little while to recover. Quite a few crane-served buildings were recently built for the energy industry with the assumption that they would be preleased quickly, but they weren’t,” Tobin says. “The activity on the east side is more than compensating for those little pockets that aren’t doing so well.” The industrial market is doing well across the state of Texas as population growth continues at a record pace. In Dallas, Avison Young credits population boom to a “demand in industrial users.” The company’s 2017 forecast points to e-commerce suppliers as examples of users who have DFW in their crosshairs. In 2016, the region recorded the highest quarterly absorption in 10 years even as construction levels reached historic highs. “The Dallas metro area has world-class transportation access via air, rail and road, making the city an ideal location for warehouse and distribution properties,” the report says, predicting a slight uptick in vacancy rates from 2016’s 5.6 percent to 5.8 percent in 2017. San Antonio, meanwhile, is working to position itself as a distribution hub with considerable success. Absorption rates increased in 2016, a trend Avison Young expects to continue in 2017. The company also anticipates industrial vacancy rates around 5.6 percent, down from 2014’s 6.4 percent. Compared to its neighbors along I-35, Austin’s industrial market is moving along quite slowly, though the city added 1.8 million square feet of industrial space in 2016. “Austin’s industrial market faces a growing challenge from a declining employment rate in the manufacturing sector and the threat of industrial space being redeveloped for mixed-use and creative office space,” Avison Young’s 2017 Forecast explains. The company expects the industrial market there to stay tight, averaging 4.4 percent vacancy in 2017. l Avison Young was a winner of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 and re-qualified in 2015 to maintain its status as a Best Managed Gold company

*“Limited land availability in DFW’s infill sub-markets has driven developers to South Dallas where land was once plentiful and relatively expensive. Despite the increase in vacancy due to large available speculative deliveries, brokers expect these spaces to be snapped up quickly as there are still limited options for tenants – specifically in the 500,000 sq. ft. and higher space segment.” Source: Lauren Paris, Sr. Research Analyst, Miller Hamrick, Research Coordinato, Robert C.

What’s Projected for Office in 2017?

*“Decline in sublease availability is expected to continue as energy companies re-evaluate their space needs as the energy industry begins to show signs of improvement… Rising rig counts and oil prices could mean the worst is behind us… That along with higher – and steadier – commodity prices during the second half of year, and an office construction cycle finally winding down, next year will be one more characterized by a low but positive rebound for landlords… We estimate it could require another three to five year in CBD and possibly longer for West Houston for vacancy to subside to more historic averages.” 12

Appraisal Disapproval:

how a Texas legislator is fighting for property tax reform Mitch Zarsky

BY BRANDI SMITH

Mitch Zarsky says he could hardly believe it when he heard his own words parroted back to him during a recent Harris County Appraisal District hearing. “I can remember when the gentleman called me about this space,” Zarsky says, referring to a ministorage facility he owns. “He acted like he was an individual interested in leasing a space for personal storage.” Zarsky says the potential tenant appeared to be a third party used by HCAD to gain information about properties, which was now being used against him out of context. “What he was trying to say was that the property's obviously worth more because it only has one vacancy in the entire property, which is not true,” says Zarsky. “The bottom line is I had several vacancies, but only had one at that time that I was looking to rent.”

“That's very underhanded and it's not a fair way to do business,” Zarsky says. “ Zarsky, president of Zarsky Industries, owns roughly 15 properties across the state, ranging from what he

describes as the “little mini-storage” that was the topic of his HCAD hearing up to one property valued at more than $9 million.

“Government shouldn't be in that business tricking taxpayers,” Bettencourt says. Though Zarsky and HCAD eventually settled on a property value, which Zarsky calls “reasonable, but a little on the high side,” Zarsky is unnerved a government agency would use a third party to execute such a deceptive tactic. “That's very underhanded and it's not a fair way to do business,” Zarsky says. “These third parties are not part of the county government; they can basically say whatever they want. They're providing the information they find out to the county, but they are not directly connected to the county, so there's no checks and balances there.” REDNews reached out to Sen. Paul Bettencourt (R-Dist. 7) to find out whether he’s heard any stories similar to Zarsky’s. Bettencourt, who’s been a champion of property tax reform, was startled by Zarsky’s experience.

Paul Bettencourt

“Government shouldn't be in that business tricking taxpayers,” Bettencourt says. “We actually asked

the appraisal district and they claim that they don't have people doing that. They do have people who will call from the office, but they don't act like third parties. However, the fact that the information was repeated in a hearing means that somebody got it to the appraisal district.” Just as Zarsky does, Bettencourt believes there needs to be a set of checks and balances for Texas appraisal districts. If Senate Bill 2, the “Texas Property Tax Reform and Relief Act of 2017,” passes this session, checks and balances will be put into place.

In Dallas-Fort Worth, Bettencourt says the average home’s value shot up 22 to 24 percent in just two years. “We want to create a property tax administration advisory board at the Comptroller's office that will oversee all the appraisal districts because different districts can have completely different attitudes. There's no place to complain about appraisal review board members or about operations in the districts,” says Bettencourt. “You can complain to the licensing board about somebody's license, but you can't complain how you were treated or how you were treated differently from one county to the next.” Bettencourt, a former Harris County tax assessor, completed a statewide property tax hearing tour last year to learn about issues concerning property owners. “The primary thing was that property taxes are rising two-and-a-half or three times faster than Texans' personal income,” he says. “That means that every year, home and business owners get further behind, because taxes grow faster than their income.”

Continued from Page 24

In Dallas-Fort Worth, Bettencourt says the average home’s value shot up 22 to 24 percent in just two years. The number is 20 percent in San Antonio. Austin, he says, has seen three years of 12 percent increases. But the largest increase can be seen in Texas’ largest city. “The average home in Harris County has actually seen a taxable value increase of 36 percent and that's after exemptions. That's off the charts,” he says. “When I was a tax assessor, I never thought I'd ever even be talking about numbers this high.” That is on the residential end. Bettencourt says the cost to commercial owners has also been extreme. “Commercial businesses are looking at double-digit increases, on average, every year unless they protest,” he says. Protest is something with which Zarsky is all too familiar. He says he spends weeks each year fighting appraisal districts’ valuation of his properties. “I had a property that just kept going up 15 to 20 percent every single year, even though the property was in the same exact condition it was several years back. I brought that to the appraisal district’s attention, and the chief appraiser said, ‘Well, that's the way it works,’” Zarsky says. He suspects most property owners suffer the increases for a few years, believing they will slow down eventually. “It's just too much trouble to fight it,” Zarsky says. “As a result, three or four years down the road, their taxes have increased 50 to 60 percent. It's too late for them to do anything about it because it's already increased beyond the point that they can bring them back down to where they actually should be.” Bettencourt says it is imperative the state act now to ensure its taxpayers are not faced with this kind of burden year after year. “There's a device called a rollback rate, which is a technical term that basically allows some latitude by the jurisdictions to raise taxes. We want to cut that in half so that it slows this rate of growth by half,” says Bettencourt. “After that point, there should be an automatic election. If taxing jurisdictions want to get more money, they need to go to the public and get a vote.” Bettencourt says SB 2 has the support of many of his fellow legislators, most importantly Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick. 26

February 2017

“The lieutenant governor formed the Senate Select Committee on Property Tax Reform and Relief, then put us on the road to seven cities. We heard testimony from 321 witnesses and visited with many of the estimated 2,150 attendees,” says Bettencourt. “I want to thank Senators Creighton, Hancock, Lucio, Perry, Van Taylor and Uresti, as well as the several other senators who joined the committee periodically, for their participation." Bettencourt hopes backing will help SB 2 pass, despite what he calls “substantial opposition” from Texas Municipal League and the Texas Association of Counties. Bettencourt adds: “Somebody's got to stick up for the taxpayers.”l

“…brokers and sellers are intentionally leaving pricing out of their ads and instead are stating ‘call for pricing’ for fear the ads will become evidence in an HCAD hearing. This causes their ads to lose traffic and impact over those that post pricing. Many brokers and end users searching for properties won't call on ads without listed sales prices as it takes considerable more time when they are scanning for potential investments.

Mitch Zarsky

In addition, when supposed interested parties call on ads, sellers are cautious to not quote pricing and have chosen to quote general sales that have taken place in the area until a LOI is received and the potential buyer can be verified. It makes the whole process of selling a property like being the doorman at a speakeasy. No one becomes comfortable discussing price until the buyer can be trusted/verified.” - Mitch Zarsky

O’Connor Office Forecast

Takeaway: Although office vacancies have not reached the all-time highs attained during the ‘80s Oil Depression in Houston, they have come close. The consensus is that we ‘hit bottom’ in 2016, but that the recovery will be long and slow, providing financial heartburn for landlords and good opportunities for tenants. • • • • • • • •

Oil supply and demand worldwide is expected to return to equilibrium in 2017, which should result in rising prices…which will help Houston Houston office vacancies have increased from 9% to 22% in approximately two years

Atlanta, Dallas, and Denver all have vacancies as well-in the 1623% range

Half of oil and gas bankruptcies have been in Houston’s CBD, with Westchase, the Energy Corridor and North Belt not far behind…not all bankruptcies have rejected their leases…yet Much of the sublease space is very attractive Class A space, with offerings of low rates, long term leases (five years +), and other concessions…very hard for new buildings to compete

Because of the slowly rising but uncertain rate environment, many landlords are hesitant to quote rates 3-4-5 years ahead Memorial City, the Inner Loop, Sugar Land, and The Woodlands have remained in the high occupancy zone, largely because they are mixed-use developments, which are in vogue at the moment

We can expect increasing merger & acquisition activity among the

• • • • • •

oil & gas companies, and the accompanying consolidation may throw more sublease space on the market

There are private equity firms supporting new small company startups, and these are taking advantage of cheaper sublease space Brokers are optimistic as more tenants are starting to make decisions-gray clouds are behind us and blue skies are ahead

Jobs drive absorption and Houston continues to gain jobs, although on average they are lower paying jobs than oil & gas jobs $60-$65 bbl prices are needed for Houston’s O&G community to stabilize, get their balance sheets in order, and to consider growing / hiring again The new 35 story Fertitta building in the Galleria, which will come online during this downturn, is expected to do well since it is a mixed-use development, with retail, hotel, multi-family, and office There has been a massive flight from Greenspoint office buildings and the future for re-leasing them ranges from uncertain to grim, and may hinge on a huge tenant coming in with other companies following it-a significant renovation may be required in the meantime

CCIM Luncheon

Speaker: Patrick Jankowski, Economist-Greater Houston Partnership Takeaway: The worst of the oil price recession / downturn is over, and recovery is underway. It will be slow and will be tied to price of oil. Industry needs to get over $60 per barrel to begin hiring. • 67,500 high paying jobs lost in oil & gas sector were replaced by growth in medical, hotel, restaurant, construction, and other service industries, albeit at lower pay scale, so in last two years we have had a net gain of about 10,000 jobs • Organic growth in Houston is about 65,000 per year (births over deaths) so in ten years we will have 650,000 more people under ten years old! This affects schools, medical, and other sectors. • In-migration depends on job growth, but that is expected to also resume

• If Houston were a country, we would have the 25th economy in the world at $500 billion per year

• Most of the return of drilling activity has been in the Permian Basin in West Texas 42

Patrick Kankowski

• Rig efficiency improvement means that fewer rigs can drill more wells-new rigs can even ‘walk’ from one drill site to another, avoiding the need for trucks to transport them

• Big chemical plant construction is tailing off, as are construction jobs in East Houston • Future job growth will be in sectors that service growing population, such as government, education, retail, healthcare, and restaurants & bars…construction will fall, then level off • Houston has caught the eye of international investors, and the Greater Houston Partnership is getting a record number of inquiries
