Supply Outpaces Demand as Rents and Prices Rise to Record Heights

Sacramento’s industrial market is seeing steady activity despite rising interest rates, rampant inflation, supply chain disruption, and increasing recessionary concerns. Developers remain active throughout the region, especially in Metro Air Park and West Sacramento, and are building additional inventory to address tenant demand. Though leasing activity is slowing from last year’s record pace, demand is still durable and will likely be adequate to absorb the new supply coming online. After rising for two straight quarters, vacancy is set to fall next quarter as new supply is occupied. Retailers and logistics companies remain active in the market as industrial tenants look to shore up their supply chain networks and address deteriorating transportation issues. Though the market is not going to match the record growth from last year, there is strong tenant demand and a growing development pipeline, signaling a positive outlook in the year ahead. Sales volume has started to soften as interest rates rise, but sale prices are still rising, and cap rates are compressing. Sale price growth is likely to moderate in the next six months and there will be upward pressure on cap rates due to higher borrowing costs.
