Noticeable Demand Returning
After three consecutive quarters of negative absorption, the Central Florida retail market bounced back. The start of the third quarter of 2020 nearly paralleled the activity experienced during the second quarter, with retailers remaining hesitant to reopen, minimal tours or sales occurring and consumers weary of the unknown climate created by the pandemic.

Tenants interested in the market paused or delayed tours and, many properties were pulled off the market in a wait-and-see approach.

The food and beverage segment of retail was the driving force behind much of the activity. Interest rates were at near all-time lows providing cost-effective financing to help bolster and carry on the 10-year record growth experienced throughout Orlando. Unemployment in the region, the lowest in recent history and well below the national average, was championed by many in the local market.
