    Why Is There Softness In Storage?

    Why Is There Softness In Storage?

    Storage is an industry segment that has been growing rapidly for the last few decades. But this has been impacted by the recent decline in the residential real estate market in the past 24 months.

    Across the United States there has been a decline in storage occupancy and operators have been offering increased incentives for their retail storage offerings.

    So the question is why the sudden drop in prices? Is the industry over supplied? Are the traditional metrics for storage space as a function of population density no longer valid?

    Hedonics Gone Wild

    Hedonics Gone Wild

    On yesterday’s show we looked at a couple of the hedonic adjustments that the BLS makes when computing GDP and the consumer price index. On today’s show we are going to take a look at the real estate component of the CPI. Part of the contribution to elevated inflation over the past couple of years has been the nearly white hot acceleration of real estate prices. That’s partly a function of purchase price. But the BLS doesn’t factor that into the cost of housing. Instead, the treat the entire real estate marketplace as if it consisted of landlords and tenants, despite the fact that home ownership represents about 66% of households across the nation. 

    What I will reveal on today's show would be funny if it wasn't so tragic.

    AMA - Surprise Appraisal

    AMA - Surprise Appraisal

    Today’s question comes from Marc in Montreal.



    I recently got an as-built appraisal report that I wish to use for financing for a new apartment complex in a semi-rural location with lots of industry and extremely low vacancy.  The appraiser is quoting a higher CAP Rate than I was expecting, citing the following.  First, he is using comparables a couple of hundred miles away, in the same province.  Second, he is stating that the Bank of Canada has not lowered interest rates, when multifamily lends on a more floating bond rate.  Third, his only comparable in the same market appears to be an inferior product with less amenities.  Fourth, he is saying that the site is not serviced, but I can tell you that the municipal government has stated that servicing will come in time for the construction.  What kind of arguments can I make to gently push the appraiser to a more favourable CAP Rate?"
