As we’re just past the half-way point for 2017, we thought a market update was in order. Instead of focusing on vacancy or absorption rates, we decided to highlight the free-standing industrial properties that have sold year-to-date in Leduc / Nisku. While headlines might suggest that market is under duress, the sales data indicates there’s still a healthy amount of activity. In total, there have been 11 sales amounting to over $33 million in transaction value.

There is a wide range in prices, with one building selling at $83 / sq ft and another selling at $320 / sq ft. A number of factors influence this variance, including age / quality of the building, location, site coverage, cranes and power availability. Accordingly, buyers and sellers need to ensure they’re comparing a subject property to actual comparables. For example, a newly constructed concrete building with cranes and heavy power will be valued much differently than an older warehouse with a small land component.
With interest rates having just risen 25 basis points, it will be interesting to see how this affects sales for the second half of the year. Oil prices are still under pressure and have been floating sub $50 / barrel for the better part of the past three months. In the next week or so we’ll provide an update on free-standing industrial buildings that have sold in Edmonton.
