Best Real Estate Investing Advice Ever

Welcome to the Best Ever midweek news brief, a new series where we will highlight the top headlines CRE investors should be paying attention to this week, followed by a deep dive on a larger news topic or trend alongside a CRE expert.

Today’s Headlines:

  • Self-Storage Boom Set to Peak: A recent report from Yardi Matrix predicts a surge in supply for 2024 and 25, followed by a decline in later years, signaling a major shift in what’s become an attractive asset class for investors.

  • ‘Cause for Optimism’ in NNN?: Triple-net-lease average closing cap rates declined in January while inventory dropped for a second consecutive month, to signs that Chris Lomuto of Northmarq says could be “cause for optimism.”

  • Rents Are Cooling … Sort of: New “luxury” Class A supply is putting downward pressure on rents at all price points. It’s a phenomenon called “filtering,” and there are 12 U.S. markets where Class C rents are falling at least 6% year-over-year. All 12 of those markets have supply expansion rates ABOVE the U.S. average.
