Year End Recap – 2021 Q4 Review

2021 has come to a close with the pandemic continuing to negatively affect the economy in various ways including jobs, supply chain issues and inflation. In spite of this, I feel the commercial property market in Western Nevada County (i.e. Grass Valley and Nevada City) has fared relatively well as evidenced by the graphs to the right. The year ended with falling vacancies in all product types – industrial, retail and office.
Regarding the office market, vacancy was reduced due primarily to a large portion of a 150k square foot campus office complex being absorbed for cannabis use. That said, we do note a general slowing of cannabis activity and related interest in commercial property for such use as a result of high regulation/taxation imposed on the legal cannabis market and competition from other geographic areas as well as the black market.
The industrial market locally is as tight as I have ever seen it. We get calls regularly for small industrial space between 1000 – 5000 square feet, and when such space does become available, it is very quickly leased. Developing new supply is the answer, but new construction is severely hampered by the lack of properly zoned and buildable land and by exorbitant construction, labor and materials costs.
