Los Angeles has the lowest industrial vacancy rate in Southern California at 2.2%, according to the first quarter report from NAI Capital. We have heard about the record-low vacancy rate—and subsequently record-high rental rates—in Los Angeles for the last several quarters, but what does this low of a vacancy rate really mean? At 2.2%, the industrial market is nearly fully occupied and vacancy rates likely can’t get any lower in the market—because a 0% overall vacancy rate is unlikely. Los Angeles isn’t alone. Orange County is in second place with a 2.3% vacancy rate and Ventura’s vacancy rate fell 50 basis points to 2.6% To find out more about how this supply shortage is impacting leasing activity, we sat down with Chris Jackson, executive managing director at NAI Capital.
