Industrial Market Recap 2nd Quarter

LA Northwest Market Update.

The Los Angeles county industrial market remains the tightest in the country – Xceligent Research. Despite seeing a continual feeding frenzy for industrial property, the market inventory has increased — by 0.1%. With the only new product coming online in Valencia and Simi Valley, San Fernando Valley industrial property values continues to grow by leaps and bounds.

The newest trend in the warehouse world is “Creative Rehab” which turns the dated heavy industrial brick construction into warehouse/office conversions. These properties are complete with polished concrete floors, modern lighting, full A/C, and a kitchen that would make your home jealous. It also comes with a hefty price tag of nearly $1.40 NNN per square foot for over 10,000 sq.ft. of space. In comparison the competitive market rate is between $1.15-$1.20 NNN per square foot.

Land within the Valley will continue to disappear as Overton Moore Properties’ newest project will remove land from Burbank Airport adjacent parking lots. Effectively displacing many entertainment studio vehicles and other related companies. Sending land hungry companies into Sun Valley, Sylmar, and San Fernando.

Bottom line – my opinion is lease rates will increase and sale price to follow suit.

Industrial Market Recap 1st Quarter

LA Northwest Market Update

Los Angeles Northwest region maintains continued low vacancy rates with only .1% increase in available space for warehouse and distribution totaling 1.1%. Direct Weighted Average Asking Rates (NNN) increased by $.01 to $.75 for warehouse and distribution but remained the same for flex property at $1.09. Unemployment also dropped for California.

In my opinion lease prices will continue at current market however sales prices will increase as users contemplate equity involvement in properties.

Industrial Market Recap 4th Quarter

Los Angeles Northwest region 4th quarter recap.

Los Angeles Northwest region continued fierce competition through the fourth quarter with a .1% drop in vacancy rates totaling 1% now available. Weighted Average Asking Rent (NNN) increased $.01 per square foot from 3Q bringing averages to $.81 (NNN). Current construction by submarket showed LA Northwest in second place behind LA East. LA Northwest reported 1,104,333 sq.ft. while least-under-construction market LA Central showed 626,818 sq.ft. Lastly, LA northwest posted 100,029 square feet of Total Quarterly Net Absorption.

In my opinion lease rates and square foot prices will stay the same or increase as seen in Weighted Average Asking Rent (NNN) increase. No noticeable movement from increased financing rates as of yet. Additionally, with with such little inventory the pricing and values are highly compressed – Sellers market.

An Insight Into SBA Loans

SBA 7(a) vs SBA 504

While working with small businesses for purchasing property, I am often asked what kind of financing is available. I respond, “Conventional of course, and this ‘thing’ called SBA.” For those of us that aren’t experienced in the difference, I’ve taken a clip from Wells Fargo SBA Lending webpage (click here for direct website or on photo) to better define this “thing” or rather, lets better refer to it as a Program. Small Business Administration (SBA) provides an opportunity for a small business to purchase property with lower down payments and long repayment terms. Below is the difference between the SBA 7(a) and SBA 504 programs that are available.

I’ve found that some companies have experienced an opportunity to purchase a property where they previously could not because of their use of this program.

So there you have it. A quick insight into the SBA loan programs.
