According to Steve Timmel of Grubb & Ellis West Shell 94% of the Cincinnati area office/industrial deals completed in the last 36 months have been to buyers from outside the Greater Cincinnati area. This statistic is astounding ! What is it about the Greater Cincinnati commercial real estate market which is so attractive to out of state buyers and investors ? Could the stability of the economy and lack of large swings have something to do with it ? After what we have all been through in the last 24 months a commercial/industrial market such as Greater Cincinnati is like a breath of fresh air. The new normal to coin a phrase !
