Colorado Market Data

Industrial property sales have been up year-over-year in 2020, unlike the retail and office sectors, steadily outperforming retail and office, which was down around 63%.  In fact, Industrial sales have more than countered the decrease in the other sectors, particularly due to the increase in warehouse spaces created by a surge in online commerce.

Mobile Home Parks have become another rare jewel in commercial, a recession-proof facet that has far outperformed multi-family in 2020.  Institutional park purchases are at an all-time high, with many fund managers realizing that the high returns on Mobile Home Parks is unparalleled in any part of the economy, including all real estate and the stock markets.  Now is an ideal time to get in on the game where you have the lucky combination of decreasing supply (no new parks being built inside city limits), lot rents that are across the board well below the market rate, and a sustained demand with ample essential jobs in this income bracket.  What this means is that mobile home parks have collected 91% of regular rental income during the pandemic, compared to 35%-40% of normal in multifamily apartments, which are sustained by jobs which have been particularily hard-hit.
