Marcus & Millichap is pleased to present the opportunity to acquire the property located at 2407 North Preston Street in Ennis, Texas, leased to Party Supplies Group, LLC. The subject property consists of approximately 62,500 square feet of warehouse space and is situated on 2.13 acres of land. The asset features six loading docks, allowing for easy distribution for 18-wheeler trucks. Based on current land and construction costs, the property is priced below replacement cost. At $2.40 per square foot, the tenant’s triple-net lease is below the average market rate of about $4.00 per square foot for comparable properties. This creates a value-add opportunity for the future landlord when the lease expires in the fall of 2023. Situated just off Interstate 45 in the Outlying Ellis County submarket, the property has direct access to Dallas and Houston.
The Outlying Ellis County submarket is relatively small, containing 13.0 million square feet of industrial space. Logistics space makes up the majority of the submarket, taking up 56 percent of inventory. Over the last four quarters, the vacancy rate has dropped 190 basis points to 1.6 percent during the third quarter of 2022. This compares to the 5.4 percent rate for the overall market. At nearly 320,000 square feet, annual net absorption through Q3 2022 dwarfs the five-year average of about 59,000 square feet. The sudden jump in demand has helped propel market rent growth to an unprecedented 13.7 percent year-over-year during Q3. While rent growth in Outlying Ellis County compares to the overall market, average rents in the submarket offer tenants a 16 percent discount at about $7.10 per square foot compared to the metro area. With 264,000 square feet currently underway, the inventory is set to expand by a considerable 2 percent. However, nearly all of this new construction is concentrated in the 250,000-square-foot Red Oak data center (CoStar). Therefore, rent growth and vacancies among smaller warehouses will essentially be unaffected by new supply for the foreseeable future.
