Where to Find the Best Deals for Industrial Assets

September 1, 2017 | Patricia Kirk | National Real Estate Investor

A new report from Situs RERC, a global research and advisory firm, has provided a ranking of the best markets for industrial real estate from a value vs. price perspective. The rankings are based on second quarter statistics for industrial properties in primary, secondary and tertiary markets.

Industrial real estate currently offers the greatest value compared to price of all commercial property sectors, according to Situs RERC President Ken Riggs. The firm gave the sector a rating of 5.5 on a scale of 1 to 10 in the first quarter of 2017. Industrial properties come with low risk, with little fluctuation in vacancy or return on investment (ROI), he notes. “Everyone is chasing it because rents continue going up, and there is little turnover.”

I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture.  For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments.  Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients.  I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
