As we head into summer, cap rates for net lease propertiesremain low. Net lease retail averages dropped from 7.06% in Aprilto 6.84% in May. Dollar Stores highlighted this drop with cap ratesdipping beneath 8% to a 7.47% average. While other sectors such asQSR and C-Stores posted minor cap rate increases, overall the netlease market is experiencing some of the boldest low cap rates inmemory.

Nevertheless,the net lease market looks to shine bright this summer.
