Industrial’s Winning Streak Has Room to Run
CARLSBAD, CA—Industrial investment’s winning streak should extend into 2018, in the view of investors and brokers polled by Real Capital Markets and SIOR. The newly issued Real Capital Markets/SIOR Investor Sentiment Report finds that 90.3% of brokers and investors believe investment activity will remain comparable to recent levels. Slightly less than half believe that activity will increase, even if only marginally; this view was more widely held by brokers than investors.
“The industrial sector continues to draw a wide range of investors, due to its stability and the potential for long-term growth,” says Steve Shanahan, executive managing director at RCM. “That equilibrium and other market dynamics make industrial investment properties the preferred option among a wide range of investors. We don’t foresee a dramatic shift in the nearer term.”
