Net Lease Market Still Hot
By Michael Randman, Southpace Broker
During the first quarter of 2013, cap rates for the single tenant net leased market remained near historic lows for the retail, office and industrial sectors.
These rates continue to compress for long-term freestanding credit retailers like Dollar General and Advance Auto Parts. Good financing is driving the acquisition costs up. Long-term, non-recourse financing is available for new triple-net Dollar Generals making them very attractive for both large REITs and private equity buyers.
Smaller private individuals looking for a conservative stable return versus what is currently available from money market accounts and long-term bonds are also very interested in these options.
Southpace Properties is raising equity to take advantage of this aggressive financing and the long-term stability offered on new Dollar General stores. Please feel free to contact us for more information regarding this opportunity.
