TAG Industrial Watch: December 17, 2022

While interest rates have slowed down industrial sales, particularly among big box warehouses, sale-leaseback transactions are still going strong. However, as the economic environment gets tougher, owner-users considering a sale may need to become creative to generate more demand for their properties. For businesses that fully occupy multi-tenant properties with unused space, a simple solution to enhance their property’s value is to consolidate their operations and free up units. To an investor, not only does such an asset offer an immediate stream of income, but a value-add opportunity to lease up the vacant units. It may be hard to accept how quickly the commercial real estate market has switched gears from a seller’s to a buyer’s market, but those who adapt quickly will benefit the most.
