Market Insights: Getting Back to the Office

Views from real estate occupiers and landlords on the return to work, pt. 1

The MRI Software Market Insights team conducted a survey in March 2021 to better understand the perceptions of commercial tenants and landlords as offices manage the return to work.

MRI Software partnered with CoreNet Global, the leading association for corporate real estate professionals, to survey nearly 200 real estate occupiers/tenants worldwide. Additionally, MRI surveyed nearly 50 landlords whose companies represent a variety of sizes and industry verticals.

The survey results revealed some expected and unexpected findings. Tenants anticipate fewer staff in the office and will leverage hot desking at higher rates. Occupiers and landlords have different perceptions on the outlook for the future, as tenants expect changes in space usage post-pandemic, while landlords do not.
