Buxton Publishes 2019 Retail and Restaurant Real Estate Outlook to Highlight Real Estate Trends for the Coming Year

FORT WORTH, TEXAS (January 3, 2019) – As the retail and restaurant industries continue to navigate changing consumer expectations, Buxton has published a whitepaper highlighting major trends and their implications for real estate decision makers. The “2019 Retail and Restaurant Real Estate Outlook” provides summaries of real estate market fundamentals, commentary on trends influencing retail and restaurant real estate decisions, and a proprietary ranking of hot markets.

“In today’s retail and restaurant environment, it is more critical than ever to seek the best possible data and insights to guide your decisions,” said Tom Buxton, president and CEO of Buxton. “Buxton is pleased to offer this complimentary resource to retail and restaurant industry professionals to guide their real estate strategies in the new year.”

Of interest to many industry watchers is the annual ranking of hot markets. The Chicago metro area claimed the top spot in this year’s ranking, moving ahead of last year’s top market Dallas-Fort Worth. New metro areas on the list include Birmingham-Hoover, Ala. and Providence-Warwick, R.I.-Mass., which both moved into the top 25. Buxton’s market rankings are based on site score patterns in the Buxton Analytics Platform, a tool used by many retailers and restaurants to assess potential sites.
