U.S. Homeowners Staying in Homes 5 Years Longer Than in 2010

Redfin | November 13, 2019

According to a new report from Redfin, the typical American homeowner has spent 13 years in their home, up from eight years in 2010. Homeowners have been in their homes the longest in Salt Lake City, Houston, Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Dallas, with homeowners in those metros staying in their homes for more than 20 years on average. "In Dallas, there are many neighborhoods that were built in the 1950s and 1960s where most of today's residents are still the original homeowners," said Dallas Redfin agent Christopher Dillard. "Because prices have been going up, and folks are gaining more and more equity, it's hard to justify selling when there aren't many if any affordable options."

CIP Real Estate Acquires Industrial Complex in North Atlanta Metro

CIP Real Estate LLC | November 17, 2022

CIP Real Estate has acquired Kennesaw Mountain Business Park, an industrial property in the north Atlanta metro area, for $22.6 million. The 10-acre parcel features two buildings totaling 144,130 square feet. The business park comprises 18 shallow bay industrial units ranging in size from 3,920 to 18,000 square feet, and the majority of the suites are between 6,000 and 12,000 square feet. The project is currently over 96% occupied. Due to strong demand and limited supply of small and mid-bay industrial units in the upscale Marietta area, a suburb of Atlanta, CIP expects significant rental increases in the next five years, which will be supported by upgrades to the facility, including improvements to the parking lot and landscaping, along with painting and HVAC upgrades. “We’re seeing unprecedented industrial demand in the Atlanta metro area, driving low inventory and supporting higher rental rates, Kennesaw Mountain Business Park is a strategic addition to our Atlanta metro portfolio, in a highly desirable location with premier accessibility and demographics.” -Eric Smyth, CEO of CIP The Kennesaw project is the newest acquisition in CIP’s growing Atlanta metro portfolio. Just 17 miles away, in Alpharetta, is Mansell Commons, a 223,000-square-foot industrial and flex project. CIP invested nearly $750,000 in capital improvements on Mansell Commons this year. To the east, additional CIP assets include Gwinnett Commons, Brook Hollow Center, Pleasantdale Industrial Park and Perimeter Place Business Park. CIP’s purchase of Kennesaw Mountain Business Park was funded with $14.69 million in takeback financing from the seller.
