TAG Industrial Market Watch: October 6, 2018

“Alternative institutional lenders are showing industrial investors the money. Naturally, the debt landscape matches the current competitive climate of the industrial market, as interest rates continue to rise and demand is cut-throat. In just under ten years, real estate debt funds more than doubled money raised and went from five percent of lending market share to 25 percent. Given that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac do not lend to industrial investors, global real estate debt funds are more than happy to fill the void.
Still battling the labor shortages are industrial tenants. However, strategies to counteract this include the Internet of Things (IoT) and quality of life measures for workers. Both help to increase employee satisfaction and prevent facility hazards. The irony is not lost in the fact that new technology and lack of a strong labor force are the opposing issues at hand for industrial real estate.”
