Change in Buying Habits Leads to Real Estate Warehouse Boom

National Association of Realtors | April 16, 2020

E-commerce operations are requiring more storage space, and companies are ramping up more “safety stock” and rethinking previous lean-inventory strategies. “There’s this move away from just-in-time [inventory], so the tenants are getting fatter,” Kevin McGowan, president of McGowan Corporate Real Estate Advisors, which specializes in industrial real estate, told The Wall Street Journal.
