Marcus & Millichap is pleased to present the opportunity to acquire the property located at 3710 Kermit Highway in Odessa, Texas. The subject property consists of approximately 27,830 square feet of warehouse space and is situated on 1.08 acres of land. The single-tenant asset features eight grade-level doors and a clear height of up to 16 feet. Recently installed in 2019, the metal roof reduces near-term maintenance expenses. For sale as vacant, the warehouse can be purchased as an investment or for owner use.
As a lease-up opportunity, investors can achieve above-market returns by taking advantage of Odessa’s historically high leasing rates. At $48.51 per square foot, the asset can be acquired at a 43 percent discount to the average market price, which trades for about $85 per square foot. With frontage along Kermit Highway, the property is strategically located on a major thoroughfare with a high daily traffic count. Situated on the corner of Kermit Highway and Mankins Avenue, the property is ideal for tenants in need of retail space.
The Odessa market contains 12.2 million square feet of industrial space, 6.5 percent of which have been delivered since 2019. Along with falling absorption rates, the new deliveries pushed up the vacancy rate from 2.1 percent in Q2 2019 to a record peak of 12.7 percent by Q3 2022. However, the vacancy rate dropped to 11.5 percent to finish the year. Going into 2023, construction activity posted 4 consecutive quarters of decline. With only about 19,000 square feet under construction, market rents and vacancies will essentially be unaffected by new supply for the foreseeable future. Despite the rise in vacancies, market rent growth remained robust, rising 5.1 percent in 2022 (CoStar). While oil and gas prices experienced a pullback during the summer of 2022, the global inflationary environment will continue to put upward pressure on both commodities, making Odessa a long-term beneficiary.
