Although industrial construction seems to have grown rapidly throughout the pandemic (referencing public and government data), the local “small”, privately owned construction seemed to be on a historic “low availability” level. Couple this with seasonal “swings” and we face a huge shortage in the construction market at the beginning of 2023 when most companies and private investors dedicate time to plan their year out while waiting to see further market shifts. The uncertainty in the Real Estate market is making industry experts unaligned in predictions and nobody really knows what a short-term sentiment is.

Diving deeper into the local, Memphis, TN market, specifically in the Residential renovations business, we are noticing severe shortages of qualified Special Trades, such as Electricians, Plumbers, HVAC Techs, Concrete providers, and Remediation companies while the availability of other trades such as Tree Removal companies, Roofers, Granite and Landscaping seems to be plentiful. Memphis market, specifically in the private sector seems to be very strong and follows national statistics with 78% of total industry spending being in this sector. Few of the main reasons why we see availability shortages are in the obvious metrics, such as substantial price increases in building material, gas, and specialized equipment, such as HVAC, appliances, etc. Let’s not forget about workforce shortages which are diminishing with the lack of trade skills in younger generations, as the previous generation is slowly but surely aging into retirement.
