CRE Trends in 2021-22
fter the ups and downs of the past few years, the real estate indus- try’s future will focus on recov- ery. The resiliency of commer- cial real estate will drive that comeback, but specific trends within that field could direct the change to come. These are the commercial real estate trends for 2022 that industry experts should expect to mini- mize risk and improve client investments. 1. People Want More Work Space Many workers worked re- motely when everything shut down during quarantine. They may not want to go back to a traditional office setting, but they also can’t work from their couch forever. The need for single-person rentable office space continues to boom in the commercial real estate market. Coworking rental businesses have seen a 23% annual increase since 2010 and will remain popular. It’s one of the most dependable A

commercial real estate industry trends that investors can count on for the coming year. 2. Workers Need to Store Belongings As experts read about what to look out for in commercial real estate in 2022, they should note the concern for self-storage facilities. Remote workers may need to convert a room into a home office, which leaves them with belongings that suddenly have nowhere to go. Warehouses and storage fa- cilities are some of the leading real estate trends in the com- mercial market. They meet an individual need with unused space. Remote work will con- tinue to be a popular career
choice for individuals, people with children and anyone who doesn’t live close to a large city with jobs. They’ll need long- term storage to have a home of- fice that supports their career. 3. Consumer Demand Requires More Storage Warehouses are in high de- mand and will stay that way into 2022. Storage market va- cancy stands at 2.74% within industrial sectors, resulting in a promising future of in- creased rent for warehouses. Demand for inventory space is rising while consumer demand grows, so interested parties will likely see a significant payoff in industrial-focused investments continued on page 12A

S PRINGFIELD, VA — Newmark announced the sale of Springfield Corpo - rate Center, a 5-story, 138,830 s/f office building located at 6225 Brandon Ave. in Spring- field for $29.3 million. The asset was traded from a joint-venture between Artemis Real Estate Partners and MRP Realty to BGP Enterprises , a com- mercial real estate investment company based in Springfield. Newmark’s executive manag - ing directors James Cassidy and Jud Ryan represented the sellers on the transaction. “Springfield Corporate Cen - ter is a workhorse building that will provide consistent cash flow for the new owner,” said Ryan. “The property is lo- cated near some of the region’s largest federal agencies, is proximate to the most traveled transportation arteries and is close to where many of the em- ployees live.

The federal govern - ment continues to expand its footprint in the area, with the Transportation Security Ad- ministration (TSA) phasing in approximately 3,100 employees to a new 625,000 s/f headquar- ters building adjacent to the Franconia-Springfield Metro station (Blue Line), just two miles from the property. The property’s prime loca- tion at the confluence of I-95, I-495 and I-395 offers coveted signage overlooking I-95 and I-395, visibly accessible to more than 240,000 vehicles per day. The neighborhood has a high concentration of retail ameni- ties, including the full-scale renovation and redesign of the 1.3 million s/f Springfield Town Center, which features
an appealing mix of traditional department stores, coveted brands, a movie theater, a fit - ness center and destination dining options. Nearby shop - ping centers include Concord Centre, Springfield Plaza, and Tower Shopping Center. According to Newmark Re - search, Northern Virginia remains an attractive market for both tenants and asset owners, despite the global pan- demic and continuing economic uncertainty. The area offers many diverse submarkets, a business-friendly environment, and a continued commitment to improving transportation options, infrastructure, and housing. The area’s appeal is further enhanced by the poten- tial to co-locate with Amazon’s second headquarters as well as draw from the new talent produced by programs at Vir- ginia Tech and George Mason University.

BETHESDA, MD — 1788 Holdings, LLC , a privately- owned commercial real estate and investment firm has re - cently acquired two industrial properties in the Baltimore City submarket as part of a regional strategy that has included the purchase of 14 assets totaling more than one million s/f of space and 38 acres across seven states. The group has acquired $57 million worth of assets in 2021, with a goal of nearly doubling its portfolio size with the acquisition of an additional two million s/f of space throughout the Eastern United States over the next 18 months. 1788 Holdings now owns 17 properties totaling approximately 1.5 million s/f of space, as well as an additional 50 acres of outside storage space in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and South Carolina, with a total market value of $137 million. “A confluence of enduring positive fundamentals, com- bined with our sustained con- fidence in both the national economy and commercial real 1788 Holdings, LLC acquires two industrial properties in Baltimore City estate industry, has fueled our approach over the past year, and we intend to re- main aggressive and active in our approach for the foresee- able future to seize emerging opportunities,” said Larry Goodwin , principal, 1788 Holdings. “These factors in - clude the sustained strength of the industrial, warehouse and outside storage asset cat- egories, declining inventories, the availability of ready capital and the opportunity to acquire under-performing properties in which we can create sig- nificant value for our investors over the long-term.” Since August, 1788 Hold - ings has separately acquired a 75,000 s/f light industrial/ manufacturing building at 6901 Rolling Mill Rd., as well as a 351,000 s/f light industri- al/manufacturing asset at 1601 Wicomico St. for a combined $22.8 million. Situated on 6.4 acres of land, 6901 Rolling Mill Rd. is located just over one mile from the Eastern Av- enue exit of I-95 and features outside storage land and direct access to the Port of Baltimore. It is presently 100% leased to one tenant. 1601 Wicomico St. is positioned directly adjacent to I-95 from the Russell St. North exit and features nearly three acres of outside storage 6901 Rolling Mill Rd. 1601 Wicomico St. land. It is 100% leased with three tenants. “Acquiring Outside Storage Land (OSL) remains a point of emphasis in our acquisi- tion strategy, as we believe the availability of this acre- age represents a significant competitive advantage in the Baltimore City submarket,” Goodwin added. “As a port city, Baltimore is a primary destination for roll-on/roll-off cargo, particularly automo- biles, trucks and heavy equip- ment cargo, and there remains continuing demand for storage sites with immediate proxim- ity. Most of the infill light industrial properties in the immediate trade area do not have excess land for this type of storage, and we are filling this ongoing need.” Prologis, Inc. , a real estate investment trust headquar- tered in San Francisco, recent- ly published a market report which ranked Baltimore as the top performing market inter- nationally, in terms of rental growth, at 11%. The report additionally stated that “in the years ahead, replacement cost growth and barriers to new supply in urban areas would continue to provide signifi- cant lift to the rental growth in Baltimore and other land- constrained markets.” MAREJ

D el M ar V a
By Brian C. Hosey, Marcus & Millichap Why Hire an Exclusive Broker?
ur experience has shown that owners have three basic needs
not wanting to be “tied up” or not understanding what the word “exclusive” means. Some owners feel that hiring an exclusive broker will limit them in some way and simply say, “bring me an offer.” Oth - ers have the false impression that marketing the property on an “open basis” will result in more brokers working on the transactions. Without proper representation, own- ers often waste tremendous amounts of time and money fielding calls, sending pack - ages and arranging showings. Owners that attempt to handle the sales process themselves get renegotiated on price or locked into onerous terms that are not always in their best interest. Exclusive Listings Earn Higher Prices for Sellers It is a fact that owners who hire a broker exclusively net more money during the sales process than those who do not. When hired exclusively, a real estate professional has a fiduciary responsibility to
act in the seller’s best inter- est. The agent must perform in such a way as to get the highest price and best pos- sible terms for the client. This is not the case with open listings. When a broker brings a buyer to an open list- ing, that agent may actually be representing the buyer. In that scenario, the broker has been hired by the buyer to negotiate the best deal for him. Many owners don’t understand this nuance. Hir - ing a broker exclusively to represent the sale is the only way to ensure that the agent is working in the seller’s best interest. It is no surprise that every day I receive calls from savvy investors asking if I have any “off market” or “quiet” deals. These investors know that if the building is not being marketed properly then it can be purchased at a dis- counted price. Proven Process Listing exclusively sends a message to the investment
community that a seller is serious and not just feeling out the market. Real sellers attract the attention of serious investors and 1031 exchange buyers. In order to avoid taxes, buyers in an exchange often pay a higher price and close in a short amount of time. Once Marcus & Millichap is hired exclusively, a seller gains im- mediate access to the largest pool of qualified buyers in the marketplace. We handle all the marketing of a property and serve as a negotiation buf- fer with the brokerage commu- nity. The extensive marketing resources used in this process include: • Direct mail marketing to potential investors • Proactive outreach to buy - ers (calls, investor sympo- siums, e-presentations and property tours) • Marketing to cooperating brokers • Advertising in local/re - gional newspapers, business journals and trade publications • 1,800 investment profes -
