“Demand is still high for the industrial market, though increased construction costs, unpredictable delays, etc. are on the radar for lenders. For this reason, supply may dip ever so slightly. Generally, these lenders view construction development loans as a high-yield opportunity. However, skilled labor is still very tight and the trade war is directly affecting material costs, which ultimately will be passed on to consumers. Contractors are still optimistic but keeping a close eye on evaluation and progress or “construction risk management” is top of mind for lenders.”
