Considered the darling asset class of 2020, industrial real estate remained strong throughout the pandemic thanks to a massive spike in online sales. In fact, it’s done so well that industrial is now at a lower cap rate than multifamily, which basically means that the barrier to entry is much higher thanks to skyrocketing prices and a massively under-supplied market. In our June 2021 livestream, Chief Investment Officer Ian Formigle explains how the strong rent growth for industrial means that many sellers aren’t selling and a premium has been placed on the properties that are. While we think entry into this market will be tough, there is a reason industrial projects performed the best during the pandemic and investors should be on the lookout for these investment opportunities.
