November 12, 2020 | James Sprow | Blue Vault

Blue Vault received October sales totals for 12 effective nontraded REIT program offerings as of November 11. Sales reported by those 12 NTRs totaled $169.89 million compared to $122.77 million for September, an increase of $47.12 million, or 38.4%. This rate of increase was almost identical to the rate of increase between August and September of 38.5%. Four additional nontraded REITs have previously suspended their offerings or did not report sales for October (Griffin Capital Essential Asset REIT, InPoint Commercial Real Estate Income, Moody National REIT II, and Strategic Storage Trust IV).

Jones Lang LaSalle’s Income Property Trust’s offering led the 12 reporting NTRs with sales of $68.78 million, up from $23.97 million in September, bringing the REIT’s ten-month total sales to $337.7 million, up 23% from the first ten months of 2019 when the REIT raised $274.4 million. Black Creek Group’s Black Creek Industrial REIT IV raised $43.68 million in October, down 9.4% from $48.21 million in September, and second among the 12 reporting NTRs. Hines Global Income Trust had $19.25 million in sales for October, up 11.5% from September’s total of $17.27 million. FS Investments raised $16.83 million for its FS Credit Real Estate Income Trust, up 25.0% from its September total of $13.46 million. Four of the 12 reporting nontraded REITs had decreases in sales in October. All sales reported include distributions reinvested in shares of the REIT (DRIP).
