Sales of Flex Industrial Assets Trail Behind Warehouse Sales. What’s Behind the Trend?
A recent report from research firm Real Capital Analytics (RCA) comparing investment trends over the past decade, shows an 83 percent jump in industrial sales last year compared to the 10-year average, with warehouse sales up 95 percent and sales of flexible industrial facilities up by about half that amount, by 43 percent.
Year-over-year, warehouse sales volume rose by 17 percent in 2019, to $90.6 billion. Flex industrial sales volume totaled nearly $21.5 billion—only slightly more than the previous year's $21.1 billion.
