Exclusive SIOR/NREI research shows industry pros remain bullish about investment, financing, leasing and development in all corners of the country.
Like the other core commercial real estate sectors, industrial real estate has enjoyed a resurgence in recent years. Fueled by low interest rates, declining unemployment and broader economic growth, fundamentals within the sector have improved dramatically since the Great Recession.
What’s next for this asset class? To find out, NREI teamed up with the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR) to conduct a research survey measuring industry pros’ sentiments on the sector going forward.
The survey found that industrial real estate professionals continue to feel overwhelmingly bullish about the sector and its prospects. Across the board—whether it comes to cap rates, occupancy rates or rents—our survey respondents expect continued improvement. Very few see red flags or think the up cycle is close to running its course.
