Historical Look at Net Lease Sales Volume 2002 - Present

Updated: Jan 1, 2020

As published by CBRE Research and Real Capital Analytics in the most recent quarter, here is a historical look at the overall net lease investment sector from 2002 to 2018. There are a few key takeaways when analyzing this graph. For starters, it's interesting to see that total transaction volume within this category increased by over 14% year-over-year from 2017 to 2018 suggesting strong buyer demand for these types of assets. Also, industrial properties made up the largest chunk of the total net leased product sold in 2018, followed by office and then retail. This isn't too surprising given the hit that the overall retail industry has experienced in recent years due to the "Amazon effect" and e-commerce as a whole. Additionally, the net lease sector's share of the overall commercial real estate market has hovered at around 11% to 12% since 2012, suggesting sustained strong investor demand within the sector. As a firm, The Kase Group specializes in these types of transactions and we have successfully represented clients in the purchase and sale of these assets in 49 states around the country. Last year alone, our team was responsible for over $675 million in transaction volume within this sector and we have over $400 million in exclusive inventory. You can view our listings here:
