April 24, 2019 | Elaine Misonzhnik | National Real Estate Investor
Cap rates in the single-tenant net lease sector continued to go up slightly in the first three months of the year, according to the most recent report from The Boulder Group, an Oak Brook, Ill.-based net lease brokerage firm.
Cap rates on net lease retail properties rose by 2 basis points in the first quarter, to 6.37 percent, according to the firm’s research. Cap rates on net lease office assets went up by 8 basis points, to 7.1 percent.
Industrial cap rates, however, declined by 7 basis points quarter over quarter, to 7.0 percent. That change occurred as the number of industrial net lease properties on the market declined by 2.52 percent in the fourth quarter, to 352.
The well-attended Blue Vault session at the recent National Planning Holdings National Conference was very well received. The value of their products was evidenced by the volume of questions from the attendees. Stacy Chitty, Managing Partner, did an excellent job of explaining the history, strategy and value of Blue Vault data.
