PRLog - July 25, 2012 - SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The overall Sacramento retail vacancy rate dropped slightly to 9.8% during the 2nd Quarter of 2012, according to Voit Real Estate Services, who was recently quoted by the Sacramento Bee. This represents the second quarter in a row that commercial retail vacancy ended below 10%. According to the same source, commercial real estate vacancies within the Sacramento submarket of Carmichael reflect a much higher level of 11.3%. This phenomenon of higher retail vacancy rates often creates dramatic opportunities for businesses to sign commercial real estate lease transactions that are quite favorable to tenants.

One recent example involves a franchisee of a national company, who benefitted from a commercial real estate market that currently favors tenants throughout the Sacramento area. In late January 2012, Melisa Nelson acquired her first Curves franchise (ladies fitness gym), which had operated at 4141 Manzanita Ave in Carmichael for almost 10 years. The commercial lease would be expiring only seven months later, so Ms. Nelson had to determine whether to renew the lease for another five years or find a better location. The existing facility was part of a small neighborhood strip center with limited visibility and low traffic that had become mostly vacant with only a handful of tenants remaining in place.

In addition, she received three months of free rent plus 45 days early occupancy for signing a 53-month lease.
