Industrial Real Estate Stays Hot in 2018
According to research by NREI, industrial real estate and industrial properties should stay hot in 2018. A majority of survey respondents indicated that they expect the industrial market to continue expanding for at least a year. Almost 23% of respondents believe that the growth will last 2 years.
Fewer respondents were concerned about oversupply in the industrial real estate market. Over 80% of respondents indicated that the supply was just right or that there was too little supply. (Too little supply seems to be the trend in the San Francisco Bay Area.)
The experts that responded ranked the West as the top region, followed closely by industrial properties in the South.
All signs indicate that industrial leasing and sales will maintain a strong pace in 2018.
