TAG Industrial Watch: June 18, 2022

With the Federal Reserve bumping up its key interest rate by the most in nearly three decades, many commercial properties on the market are approaching negative leverage territory. Negative leverage happens when the mortgage rate rises above the cap rate. As a result, the cash-on-cash return drops below the cap rate (Globe St). In the case of industrial real estate, the 6% average cap rate is sitting dangerously near the average industrial mortgage rate, which recently jumped over 5%. Given that the allure of commercial real estate investing is positive leverage, investors will increasingly put pressure on market cap rates to rise. While the overall market may be peaking, new high-yielding opportunities are emerging in industrial real estate.
