TAG Industrial Watch: January 8, 2022

While tallying is still underway, early results show that 2021 was, as expected, another banner year for the industrial real estate market. Estimates vary, but rental rates nationwide are up about 9.5 percent year-over-year, averaging about $7.40-per-square-foot. Construction activity set a new record with 568.2 million square feet underway. However, net absorption continued to outpace new supply, causing the vacancy rate to drop below 4 percent for the first time on record (Globe St). The industrial market’s strong fundamentals attracted an unprecedented level of investment. Through November, sales volume hit nearly $130 billion, up 58 percent over the total in 2020. Cap rates remained in historically low territory, around 5.4 percent (Wealthmanagement.com). However, given the recent pickup in interest rates on the 10-Year Treasury Bond, cap rates may soon bottom as inflation continues to loom.
