    Article Synopsis

    Having just completed a six month search for “warehouse for sale” property for a client to purchase, I can tell you definitively that the far West Katy and Brookshire industrial market is significantly under served.  We finally settled on a 17,000 SF warehouse building with 2,000 SF of office finish and sitting on 5 acres of land.  Pricing is in the $1,300,000 range…

    Commercial real estate owners, business owners and developers need to pay attention to the projected demographics related to the Hispanic population in Texas.  Today at the A&M sponsored TREC MCE course, Steve Murdock of Rice University illustrated the overwhelming trend of Hispanic population growth in Texas.  Anglo population is set to decrease.  Future developments and planning should plan accordingly.

    Go to Article
    Published by Eric Hughes, April 27, 2015
    Article Synopsis

    Houston’s shift in industrial warehouse demand from the West side of town to the East market is undeniable.  While historically light on fractional vacancy, East Houston and the inner Port of Houston market is now incredibly tight on available a space.  Even more concerning, this submarket has an even stronger outlook with increased break-bulk traffic foreseen for the port and continued rise in manufacturing and refining.  What is available now?  See a map below (from Costar.com) of available space for lease between 10,000 and 50,000 SF .  I culled the list a bit of functionally obsolescent buildings.  Quality space on the East side = almost Zero.

    As a tenant/buyer rep broker, I can tell you first hand that locating viable lease/purchase alternatives for clients, near the Port of Houston, has never been more challenging.

    12/19/14 Update:

    $56.52 per barrel at close of trading today.  3% increase.  Now let us do this for a few weeks in a row.  Doubtful.

    $55.46 per barrel at 8:32 AM today with morning trading up 2% or so. Interesting that the fall of oil pricing has seemed to slow significantly, albeit for 2-3 days. If pricing settles in the mid $50’s per barrel for more than 3-6 months, Houston will be shedding some jobs and businesses. My customers have already indicated they are putting projects on hold until some reasonable forecasting can be developed on pricing.  Oddly enough, more commercial development was announced in the energy corridor last week for new a new class A office property for lease.

    $60.94 per barrel. That is the price of oil at the time of this post. A month ago oil was trading over $77 a barrel. Where will it stabilize? Only time will tell. What is certain is that Houston faces some real challenges in its industrial real estate market. Warehouses have been leasing and selling at all time highs. Development of bulk distribution is also in full swing. Now the scale back of industry absorbing space and rents will start to suffer. Developers of speculative warehouses for lease or sale are now likely to be sitting on empty buildings for some time with other owners facing tenants who may fold up shop and thereby leaving vacant property. The market was probably due for a correction with new freestanding warehouses trading at $75 to $85 PSF for shells on a purchase and $.75 PSF/month+ on rentals. Heavy leveraged owners are the most vulnerable and others with substantial cash reserves may see some opportunities in the market. Businesses looking for space to lease should see some relief in pricing over the next six months.

    Why is there little to no available manufacturing and/or storage warehousing available for purchase or lease near the Port of Houston?  Strong local economy?   Maybe.   Top Port in the Nation in many stats?   Partially.  Booming energy sector?  Possibly, but fading…

    Warehouse brokerage in Houston, Texas…wow, what a year.  2013 may end up being a record year for many Houston commercial brokers, given the tremendous influx of businesses relocating and/or expanding into the area.  However, the high demand results in “slim pickings” for business owners looking to acquire a warehouse for lease or sale.  With an approximate vacancy rate of around 4.9% in 2013, the industrial real estate sector has little inventory for potential owners and lessees…

    The overall tone in the Houston commercial real estate market is an optimistic one. Experts are speculating a continued turn-around for this year and beyond. One would assume this is good news for Houstonians- not necessarily.  It seems property owners are not the only ones paying attention to real estates “sunny forecast”…

  • library_books Freestanding Warehouses for Lease – Houston…a very tight market
    Go to Article
    Published by Eric Hughes, May 15, 2012
    Article Synopsis

    There are fewer and fewer options for businesses needing warehouse space in Houston. Freestanding warehouses for lease or sale are becoming very difficult to locate. If you need a crane served warehouse, your only options are new construction and expensive. With rates averaging $.68 PSF NNN/month, many businesses can’t afford the cost. Will this push some companies to consider alternatives outside Houston? If the economy stays strong in the Houston area and the Panama Canal widening stays on schedule, the East Houston industrial market will be drastically underserved.

    There are only one or two second generation, crane ready or crane served warehouses for lease or sale East of Downtown Houston.  With little to no land available for development near the Port, the only choices will be out near Beltway 8 or further.

    If you need warehouse space for lease or purchase in the Greater Houston area, please contact Eric Hughes, our exclusive commercial broker affiliate for the Houston area.

    Published by Eric Hughes, March 11, 2012
    Article Synopsis

    Say what you want about the oil and gas industry…you can’t deny it has been very good to Houston, Texas.  The trickle down of this prosperity is a booming industrial market experiencing near record absorption and rate increases.  Bottom of the market distribution space which was renting for $.28 psf/gross/month a year ago is now going for $.35 PSF/gross/month.  The near east side of town near the Port of Houston had some empty dock high space for rent which had been on the market for months.  Now that space is all leased and requirements come across my email every day for distribution space.  In addition to small to medium sized dock space, similar sized manufacturing/crane served buildings are in high demand.  Most of this activity is related to the energy sector in some form or fashion.  The only area of industrial not faring so well is the big box distribution arena.  There are still options for spaces over 30,000 SF.

    If you need space in Houston, contact Warehousefinder.net’s exclusive Houston broker affiliate, Eric Hughes.
