Savvy real estate investors are flocking to premium retail assets. The evolution of retail had driven investors away from the retail asset class, but attractive pricing and yield spreads are driving investment activity back again. Institutional capital in particular has been finding opportunities in the retail market. This year, activity for class-A, well-located retail assets has increased, and experts expect the momentum to carry through the fourth quarter.

“We’ve seen an increase in investor demand for retail over the last quarter driven by an attractive spread in yields relative to other asset classes,” Tom Lagos, EVP at JLL, tells GlobeSt.com. “Savvy investors who are appropriately underwriting risk are getting a premium for pursuing this asset class. We anticipate more activity in the last quarter of the year along these lines.”
