TAG Industrial Market Watch: January 19, 2019

“Although construction continues, industrial real estate availability sat at 7% at the end of 2018. Limited supply for commercial real estate in 2019 means good news for landlords, putting more pressure on tenants to take advantage of their negotiation window well in advance. With a smaller number of options, they realize by neglecting renewing their lease with up to date market rents and conditions, other tenants who did so will beat them to the punch. Tenants may take heed and lock in a long-term lease— since it is almost certain rents will continue to rise.

Value-add opportunities are on industrial investors’ radars this year, with two more interest rate hikes from the Federal Reserve and slower appreciation predicted.”
