California retail capital is heading outside of the state in search of single-tenant opportunities. That isn’t to say this capital doesn’t want to be in California. The strong dynamics in the California markets has driven prices to all-time highs, making it difficult to invest. The chief issue, however, is the limited opportunities for investment: no one wants to sell their product. The trend is driving investors, especially investors completing 1031 exchanges, out of California into markets like Texas, Washington and Florida.

This is the top of the market.”
