Best SoCal Industrial MLS

The AIR CRE is the premier multiple listing service for industrial real estate such as warehouses and manufacturing buildings in Southern California. Whether you are a buyer or tenant or landlord or seller, this MLS is the service that all the top-tier brokers primarily use. It services industrial, office, retail, and other commercial real estate listings.

There are over 33,000 listings in the system for SoCal. And there are over 1,600 members in SoCal. So if you seek to search or list for sale or lease a warehouse or other commercial property in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside or Ventura counties, contact us as we are members of this MLS.

LoopNet, which is owned by Costar, is a second-tier MLS that we also use but it’s data pales in comparison to the AIR CRE and top firms mainly use it as a secondary marketing tool but don’t always put their listings there. The most active and major Los Angeles commercial real estate brokers use the AIR CRE, which is member owned and created in 1960.

Market Snapshot 2021-Q1

Central Los Angeles industrial submarket overview with absorption and vacancy rate.

Supported by the phenomenal growth of e-commerce, leasing activity was strong in the first quarter after the steep declines experienced earlier in early 2020. In Q1, across the Central Market, 139 leases were signed for a total of 2,836,295 SF; the average asking rate was $0.96 PSF. Q1 leasing volume for Central LA was 25% higher than Q1 2020 levels. Another 133 warehouse properties, totaling 2,000,000 SF, were sold in the period with an average price of $291.43 PSF. The average rate will move up or down slightly quarter-to-quarter depending on how many older, functionally obsolete warehouse and manufacturing buildings are in the pool of available inventory. The limited amount of available first-generation, Class A space leases at a premium to the average rate.

VItal Property Stats – The Past Decade

If you want to get a quick feel for the strength of the Central Los Angeles Industrial submarket, then glance at the below chart. It shows the 3 key metrics over the past decade.

The vital property statistic that I focus on the most is our low vacancy rate at just under 4%. The Southern California industrial real estate market has generally had the lowest vacancy rate in the United States over the past decade. Why? Because demand from tenants and buyers is very strong and we are an infill market given we have run out of vacant land to construct new buildings.

Here are the definitions of the other two metrics in the chart. For a complete list of commercial real estate terms defined please see our Glossary.

Net Absorption: The square feet leased in a specific geographic area over a fixed period-of-time after deducting space vacated in the same area during the same period.

Net Deliveries: The square feet of new construction delivered to the market minus any buildings that were demolished.
