Industrial Watch: February 1, 2020

“Certain industrial trends are expected to roll in 2020. These include higher lease renewal rates due to historically low vacancies. Tenants strive to stay where they are with the steep competition for space, even if that means higher rents. However, vacancy rates aren’t predicted to decrease further, but remain comparative. Additionally, more industrial/retail-use properties are expected to pop up, in the form of industrial add-ons to retail space or a complete industrial replacement of the retail property. Even with the fire of the industrial market and the strength predicted to continue into 2020, sales volume is expected to dip slightly due with the combined effects of high prices and investor uncertainty.” -Adam Abushagur
