Both buyers and sellers have been able to reap the rewards of the current economic cycle. Sellers have benefitted from compressing cap rates causing values to rise, and buyers have benefitted from the reduction in interest rates. “What is unusual about this market is that even as cap rates compress, purchas- ers are earning higher yields Nat Gambuzza WESTORANGE, NJ — The Hampshire Companies , to- gether with joint venture part- ner, Paragon Realty Group , have announced the sale of a 13,946 s/f state-of-the-art medi- cal office condo located within Mount Pleasant Medical.
