TAG Industrial Watch: June 4, 2022

While the single-family market is struggling under the weight of 5% mortgage rates, commercial real estate, led by the industrial market, has continued to march on. Prices per square foot sold are already up 20% compared to 2021 (Commercial Observer). In addition, construction activity and market rent growth are at record highs, while cap rates and vacancy rates remain at record lows. Much of industrial’s ongoing success is due to the strength of e-commerce sales, which have maintained a 19% share of total retail sales despite the pandemic coming to an end (DigitalCommerce360.com). Although the threat of inflation continues to grow as real wages fall and inflation-adjusted retail sales begin to stagnate, the industrial market remains resilient.
