Pacifica Commercial Realty Reports Strong Commercial Sales, Leasing Activity in 1st Quarter

Market momentum continued from 2013 right into the new year. Sales and leasing activity continued its steady pace — nothing extraordinary, but solid activity in each submarket, and across all product types.

There is no doubt that the South Coast markets are all in healthy condition, with low vacancy rates, and finally signs that lease rates are trending upward. This has been the case for sales valuations for the past couple of years, and seeing upward trends in lease rates bodes well for local investors.

Higher rental rates boost returns for investors who have purchased assets at extremely low capitalization rates, which has characterized the market recovery.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
