* Buyer demand for net-leased properties will outpace the number of available listings through the end of the year, reported Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services, Calabasas, California.

"In the short term, many investors doubt the sustainability of the bull equity markets and will continue to seek wealth-preservation plays in the net-leased arena," said Bill Rose, national director of Marcus & Millichap National Retail Group. "In addition, more baby boomers are approaching retirement and looking for stable investments with minimal management oversight."

He added, "When combined with keen interest from major real estate investment trusts [REITs] and institutions, demand from these investors will keep downward pressure on cap rates for buildings occupied by corporate-backed tenants."

Winston Orzechowski, research director with Calkain Companies, Reston, Virginia, said simple supply and demand also helps explain the current shortage of net-leased properties.

It takes a while once construction stops for it to commence again and then to finish. We are in what you could call a strong-demand, low-supply, very-low-interest-rate environment," he said.
