ECONOMIC TOPICS THIS WEEK......ranged from buildings, to land, to abstracts about land, to land use, to spec buildings, to buildings being built....well you get the idea. Land and buildings were definitely the high score on the discussion list. And rightly so as the economy not only opens up, but to use a colleagues expression, the economy is popping the clutch and hitting the gas. So why so much chatter about land and buildings? Businesses are looking to expand and increase capacity to keep pace with the uptick on demand for products and services. New businesses are opening or looking to open (keep reading for Business Pitch-off update) and most, if not all, want a brick and mortar storefront (building) and the rest want land to build on. Hence, the land part of these conversations.
