Hi Friends!

This is your Hard Money Lender in Tucson and the Southern Arizona area, Billy A. Beth Jo Zeitzer from ROI Properties provided valuable information we felt was worth sharing with you here:

Arizona’s economy is responding well to population growth, job growth, the housing market and energy prices—and experts say Phoenix is on pace to reclaim its title as a “high-growth market.” You can read all the details in the attached R.O.I. Properties “Real State – Commercial”newsletter, with additional statistics, market trends and information, but here’s a quick look at the highlights:

  • Although the number of office buildings changing hands in the Phoenix metro (210) in 2015 was only up slightly compared to 2014 (208), median prices showed strength: up by 16% to $122/s.f. Overall cap rates were reported at 7.6%, with Class A properties trading at 6.1%.
  • In the industrial sector, 203 buildings changed hands in 2015 compared to 219 in 2014, while the median price increased by 18% to $64/s.f. Warehouses led the pack in property types, with 132 transactions.
  • Sales activity among retail assets ticked up from 242 transactions in 2014 to 252 in 2015. The median sales price was up on a year-to-date basis by 10% to $140/s.f., and cap rates dropped slightly to 7.1% from 2014’s mark of 7.5%.
  • Multifamily investment activity remains high.  Perhaps too high??  Sales volume increased in 2015 by 50% from the previous year, and the average price per unit increased by 26% to $74,669. Cap rates are currently at 6%.

FYI: R.O.I. Properties, pride themselves on continuous analyses and their ability to keep abreast of the market, to ensure that consumers maximize on their real estate Return OInvestment (R.O.I.).  If you are interested in more information you can personally reach Beth Jo or 602-319-1326.

Well, that’s it for this time! Make it another great day!
