Resilient Market Fundamentals Spike Sales Volume

Sacramento’s industrial market is still on solid ground as tenant demand holds strong throughout the first half of 2022. The vacancy rate rose due to new speculative product hitting the market though rising construction costs and interest rates are starting to give some developers pause on starting new developments. Amazon’s pull back from the market has impacted a couple of future projects but overall tenant demand from expanding local occupiers is keeping pace with new supply. Market average warehouse/distribution asking rents hit another record-high this quarter as vacancy is 90 basis points below where it was two years ago. There are several large blocks of space at newly delivered projects that will be absorbed next quarter, placing downward pressure on vacancy. Robust quarterly sales volume revealed strong buyer demand and pricing continues to rise to record highs. The significant bump in interest rates will likely soften sales activity in the second half of the year, but there is still an enormous amount of capital allocated to industrial due to the sector’s resilient fundamentals and positive outlook. While the market will not match last year’s record pace of new supply and absorption, it will still achieve a stable 2022 with rising rents, low vacancy, and a manageable amount of supply.
