Office investment activity is matching the robust deal volume of 2017. Throughout Southern California, there continues to be capital chasing deals, but the interest is especially strong for Orange County product. In addition to strong investment demand, there is also a healthy investment market with more than $1.3 billion worth of investment opportunities above $25 million on the market in Orange County.

“Demand for quality office projects continues to be very strong up and down the West Coast, and particularly in Orange County,” Paul Jones, VP at Newmark Knight Frank who recently completed the largest office investment acquisition of the year in Orange County, tells GlobeSt.com. “With approximately $1.3 billion of office transactions valued at $25 million or more currently on the market in Orange County—10 of which are north of $70 million and the historical Orange County transaction size average is $40-50 million—2018 has continued the momentum we experienced in 2017. There is no shortage of capital chasing these deals and we expect the second half of 2018 to finish strong.”
