Industrial investors selling today are making big returns, benefiting from a market that has rapidly grown over the last three years. Industrial investor CT recently capitalized off of the evolving market, selling a value-add industrial facility in San Diego to an owner-user. While the investor’s original business plan was to lease the asset after renovations, an owner-user offered to purchase the asset shortly after it hit the market. CT was able to secure significant returns from the disposition, profiting off of what it says was ideal market timing for a medium-box asset.

“The San Diego market timing was fortunate for us,” Carter Ewing, managing partner at CT, tells GlobeSt.com about the sale. “We were in the middle of rehabbing this project when this buyer came along. It was strategic for them and it was timely for us. We didn’t have much time on the market pursuing tenants for lease because the market wasn’t really ready to show. As a result, the investment returns were outstanding because we didn’t have any time on the market waiting for an investor to show up. We expected a lot more downtime.”
