The retail commercial real estate market is showing consistent improvement. We are seeing reduced vacancy, upward pressure on rents, and higher prices per square foot being paid along major commercial
streets in the Spring of 2014. The most recent graphs from Voit Commercial illustrate the gradually improving market conditions throughout San Diego. We are also seeing significant downward pressure on the capitalization rates of triple net leased investments.
Capitalization rates for fast food restaurants are currently under 5% for well located national chains in San Diego County.
