Reis reported the office vacancy rate was at 18.1% in Q1 2022, unchanged from 18.1% in Q4, and down from 18.2% in Q1 2021.
Q2 2021 saw the highest vacancy rate for offices since the early ’90s (following the S&L crisis)
NOTE: This says nothing about how many people are in the offices (related to the increase in work-from-home), just whether or not the office space is leased.
