Net lease properites have definitely been a bright spot in the investment market with no sight of a slow down.

Thanks for your comment! For sure, and there's confidence moving forward about this sector despite the general uncertainty in the CRE industry. Let's see what tomorrow brings--literally.

Has the increase in institutional activity(from Cole and other newer funds) driven some private buyers from entering the market by driving up prices? Judging by the past years net lease deal flow, it looks like these bigger players can get much cheaper capital therefor outbidding the individual private clients out of most of the prime assets. As a net lease broker in a core market, Im seeing that cap rate are lowering and demand is still there, but with institutions buying so much, activity for regular clients has slowed.
