Housing and the TIC Market Place
I believe that the housing market and the TIC market are highly correlated. I have not seen any figures to verify this, but I imagine much of the money flowing into TIC transactions is from the sale of residential rental properties, such as small apartment complexes, duplexes and houses. The slowing housing market will affect the sale of the rental residential properties and limit the flow of money into TIC offerings. The dramatic growth of the TIC market was fueled, in part, by the strong housing market. As the housing market goes, so goes the TIC market.
