A Buying Opportunity in Industrial Real Estate

Avistone LLC, a growing real estate investment firm specializing in capturing opportunities in the multi-tenant industrial market, recently launched its latest offering, Avistone Industrial Parks III, LLC.

Avistone’s previous industrial fund –– Avistone Industrial Fund II, LLC –– delivered a commendable 20.24% Internal Rate of Return (IRR) and 9.15% cash distribution yield over a 3.01-year holding period. *Over the past decade, Avistone has completed full-cycle investments on 24 industrial projects encompassing 4 million square feet, surpassing industry performance benchmarks such as the NCREIF Property Index for Industrial Properties. We believe this strong performance can be attributed to five key factors: acquiring the right property at the right price in the right location during the opportune stage of the market cycle, coupled with highly effective property management.

Identifying the right time in the market cycle: Avistone is re-entering the industrial market, deeming the previous 2 to 3 years as a period when prices skyrocketed to unsustainable levels, rendering it an unfavorable phase for purchasing. Presently, as prices exhibit a decline, we believe the timing is right to aggressively return to the market.

Buying the right property at the right price supports Avistone’s investment objective of providing an 8% preferred return.

Avistone targets properties that can be acquired below their replacement cost. The prevailing high interest rates have compelled numerous property owners burdened by floating-rate loans or impending loan maturities to list their properties at reduced prices. Avistone believes that multi-tenant industrial real estate is now priced in a manner that presents lucrative investment opportunities, fostering potential cash flow and capital appreciation for buyers like our new fund, facilitated by access to reasonably priced debt.

Right locations – We buy multi-tenant industrial properties in select metropolitan areas with healthy economies, diverse economic drivers, and strong job growth.

Avistone strategically invests in regions where such businesses thrive and job opportunities flourish. According to the US Small Business Association, small businesses of 500 employees or fewer make up 99.9% of all U.S. businesses and 99.7% of firms with paid employees. Of the new jobs created between 1995 and 2020, small businesses accounted for 62%—12.7 million compared to 7.9 million by large enterprises.

Top-notch property management: Leveraging years of expertise in managing millions of square feet of multi-tenant industrial properties, Avistone excels in property management within this property sector. Effective property management

significantly influences both cash flow and capital appreciation, as even the finest properties may underperform without meticulous oversight.

Safety of a multi-tenant industrial investment

While no investment is entirely risk-free, Avistone has chosen the multi-tenant industrial property type due to its distinctive attributes that offer investors enticing risk-adjusted returns.

8 risk-mitigating characteristics of Avistone’s approach to multi-tenant industrial real estate include:

  • Targeting properties below replacement cost
  • Diminishing supply of multi-tenant industrial real estate due to high land prices in desirable locations
  • Ability to increase rents as an inflation hedge, bolstering capital appreciation and cash flow
  • Diversification of lease risk, with no single tenant occupying over 30% of the space
  • Growing demand from internet retail operators seeking warehouse space
  • Increased demand for last-mile distribution
  • The surge in demand for warehouse space driven by the 3D printing and robotics revolutions
