What do you think happens to the economy surrounding an office building when no one comes to work?
When a building becomes a home of business, it becomes a powerful economic engine. Let’s see how a commercial real estate impacts the economy:
#1 Local Business Support
A building needs management, repairs, maintenance, services, and utilities. So besides getting a good economic flow directly from its occupying organizations, they also support local businesses by utilizing their services for the building’s operational and management cost.
As these commercial buildings’ expenditures funnel down into the economy, they also generate better earnings for workers whose cities are benefitting from the increased business.
Jobs that were supported directly by the building’s spending and re-spending of these dollars for consumer use result in new personal earnings. They directly expand the tax bases in local and state jurisdictions.
#2 Stimulus for Economic Recession or Depression
Did you know that office-sector jobs carry a strong market share of the overall job pool? This is related to the impacts of infrastructure on the economy.
Expenditures of the inventory of office spaces continue to grow in dynamic markets. This cultivates the growth and expansion of the economy in general.
Even so, the economy built around buildings isn’t as cyclically sensitive as the other industries like retail trade and manufacturing. So in recessions, commercial spaces’ expenditures aren’t greatly affected at all. Instead, they help generate new personal earnings that provide further stimulus to the economy.
#3 Job Support
A building’s impact on jobs is significant when you look at it on a national level.
Buildings provide a conducive workspace for thousands and millions of office jobs. In fact, these commercial lots directly affect workers’ productivity with the kind of building management and services provided.
Spendings for building management, maintenance, repair, services, and utilities happen year-round and increase gradually as the building and its inventory grows. As mentioned earlier, these expenditures support local businesses providing building services. These could also generate more jobs and improve a range of services.
Workers occupying the building also helps its neighboring economy. They help the economic boom within public transportation and restaurant sectors. This ripples and contributes to the creation of more and better jobs.
