The economic downturn has taken a heavy toll on the REIT - Office sector as a greatly diminished macro-workforce lowers companies' need for office space. With demand for offices low, high levels of vacancy have placed downward pressure on the rate environment. Companies with higher quality portfolios that focus on properties in high-end markets have typically fared somewhat better.

New York and Washington D.C. have been, and still are, some of the strongest markets for the sector because demand for office space has remained relatively steady there. This has helped companies like Boston Properties Inc. which has seen its funds from operations grow 7% in the most recent quarter due to its strong geographic focus. Investors can register for free to access the research report on Boston Properties Inc. at www.stockcall.com/BXP180511.pdf.

Still the market is in relatively terrible shape. In Los Angeles for example, vacancy in downtown towers increased to 18% in the first quarter. Tenants negotiating new contracts have a great deal of leverage to lock in new leases at lower rates because the low occupancy creates stiff competition. MPG- MPG Office Trust Inc., a prominent player in the Los Angeles market, posted a $39.5 million loss in the first quarter. It is not likely that the sector will see meaningful improvement in rental demand until the macro-economy undergoes sustained growth.
