Timing the real estate market for an investment property is one of the hardest things to do and one of the most asked questions, and I do have an answer to that question at the bottom of this article.
The Single Tenant Triple Net (STNL) market has been on fire the last few years, with a slew of new buyers looking to acquire a STNL.
Many of these buyers are first time purchasers of commercial property. A basic law of economics states that if there is an increase in demand and stable inventory available then prices must increase. This is exactly what we’ve seen over the last few years as CAP rates have continued to compress.
CHICAGO—The industrial sector has become one of chief targets of investors, and several groups now say industrial properties related to transportation and outdoor storage can become a separate and valued asset class.

STOCKTON, CA—Newport Beach, CA-based CT purchased the 345-acre industrial site for the 4.4 million-square-foot NorCal Logistics Center in May 2017 and has now completed the first phase development, including three spec buildings. The last to be completed is a 1.12 million-square-foot building, one of the single-largest speculative industrial buildings in Northern California. The second phase of development will begin toward the end of 2018 and include three additional buildings totaling approximately 1.6 million square feet.

Industrial investors selling today are making big returns, benefiting from a market that has rapidly grown over the last three years. Industrial investor CT recently capitalized off of the evolving market, selling a value-add industrial facility in San Diego to an owner-user. While the investor’s original business plan was to lease the asset after renovations, an owner-user offered to purchase the asset shortly after it hit the market. CT was able to secure significant returns from the disposition, profiting off of what it says was ideal market timing for a medium-box asset.
