Here in the Atlanta commercial real estate market we have a plethora to choose from. Go after an area that is not too crowded. Thinking ahead on where the next possible locations for a hot industry product will be. Look at something that is on the outskirts of the general submarket.

What Product is Hot


Now if you’ve been reading the news recently you’ll know that industrial is a quickly moving product. During the pandemic mini first time people started ordering online. With Baby Boomers who were not typically ordering groceries online have now started. Creating a rise in the need for distribution centers. We have seen not only grocery distribution centers, but many e-commerce retailers as well. The large need for industrial type  buildings has risen. The Atlanta commercial real estate market has many different Highway systems coming in and out. Fortunately we have land and many great industrial availabilities. However these are quickly running out as developers are running to build.


Do you follow the Crowd

So the major question always is do you do what everyone else does? Now knowing that Industrials hot and seems to be moving and engraving direction is that what you do? I’m sure you’re asking but yourself the same question. Do I invest in industry? As we said at the beginning it is best to go after an asset that you understand. Maybe starting small and something like an office building. Not meaning a high-rise, but a small duplex type. These are plentiful and Suburban markets. As we see a rise in people working from home. The Office Advisors believes this is a great asset class to purchase. Do not take our word for it let’s do the research together. According to an Article by Morning Brew, REI is closing its corporate campus. They just built this campus. A massive company that has two headquarters is selling off their offices. This is just one of many examples as to why we believe a small office is the way to go.
