Question: What outcome will the a short while ago declared move of Boeing’s headquarters to Arlington have on our genuine estate current market?
Answer: I acquired this query from fairly a couple people about the past 7 days, but it wasn’t right until my Mom requested that I determined it wanted to be this week’s subject!
The information itself, Arlington gets Boeing’s World wide Headquarters, appeared to be a further large shock to our authentic estate sector just a couple decades after Amazon’s HQ2 announcement despatched demand from customers via the roof. The good thing is or however (based on irrespective of whether you are on the buying or advertising aspect), that is not the case and it is not likely to have a substance result on the housing marketplace in the close to or mid-time period.
For now, Boeing is not planning much of a change in their workforce in Arlington or Chicago, the place they are currently headquartered. The CEO and CFO offices will transfer to Arlington, but that would seem to be the extent of the rapid workforce changes planned.
It’s attainable that in some a person-off eventualities, this news will give far more self confidence in our community housing sector to some prospective buyers and investors and end result in a willingness to make a superior offer you or an present they usually could not have. Nonetheless, it is not likely these instances will result in any type of apparent trend in an already flourishing genuine estate market.
I do count on a for a longer period-expression constructive influence (4-5+ several years out) on the Arlington serious estate industry for a several good reasons:
- It is almost certainly a safe guess to think that long run workforce advancement, business growth, and community investment decision will target in Arlington
- As with Amazon, smaller organizations and start-ups in the Boeing orbit will be more probably to carve out house in and all over Arlington
- Hosting effective and various company identify makes like Boeing, Amazon, and Nestle drastically will increase the probability of Arlington (and encompassing markets like Tysons and Reston) landing at the major of the list for other Fortune 500/1000 providers to relocate their headquarters listed here. In my feeling, this is the most important result of Boeing’s International HQ announcement.
As we grapple with some tricky and special market place forces — source/demand from customers disconnect, surging interest charges, soaring inflation, plummeting inventory-marketplace, and indications of a opportunity economic downturn — information like Boeing’s choice to transfer its International HQ to Arlington is an important reminder of the very long-expression strength of our housing market and its resilience in the face of financial headwinds.
