The landscape of retail is ever evolving and that has never been more true than today. Currently, consumers can complete all their errands without leaving the comfort of their own home. From groceries, to clothing and food, your purchases can be at your doorstep that very same day and many times within the hour. This new wave of buying is not just for the Internet generation but it has trickled down to the baby boomers of the world as well. Due to this new landscape of buy and receive, distribution centers located in close proximity to major MSA’s have never been hotter.
Companies such as Amazon are clamoring for distribution or warehouse space within major MSA’s that would enable them to offer same day shipping to their clients and be able to deliver on that promise. Due to this demand, commercial real estate investors are fighting over the limited amount of such assets knowing that these big retailers are looking to lease such space. The market for these distribution centers has never been hotter and those investors who are lucky enough to scoop up a piece of this gold will be reaping the benefits for years to come.
