The State of Commercial Real Estate in Sioux Falls

Note: the current COVID-19 crisis has impacted this data. The coronavirus’ long term impact has yet to be determined, but CRE professionals should keep these developments in mind when evaluating the following information.

The Sioux Falls MSA encompasses areas in Lincoln, Minnehaha, McCook, and Turner counties, located in the south-eastern corner of the state bordering Minnesota and Iowa. 

The Sioux Falls MSA is so named for its nearby waterfall landmark, known for its national parks and the active lifestyle of its residents. Nicknamed the “Best Little City in America,” Sioux Falls serves as Minnehaha County’s seat and the largest, most populous city in South Dakota. 

Sioux Falls Regional Breakdown

The population of the city Sioux Falls sits at 183,793 as of 2019, increasing by 19.4% from its 2010 count. In turn, the Sioux Falls MSA housed 229,203 residents in 2019, an increase of 9.9% since 2010. 

Lower rents and attractive costs of living, and plentiful opportunities to purchase homes have attracted both younger multifamily tenants, first-time homeowners, and retiree populations to the city. The MSA currently has a median household income of $59,017, 4200 jobs added from 2017-2019, and an unemployment rate average of 2.2%. As such, Sioux Falls features an attractive job market and plentiful employment opportunities for residents and newcomers alike.

Sioux Falls has particularly attracted major tenants in the healthcare, retail, and banking industries such as Sanford Health, Citi, and Wells Fargo. The Tea suburb and Harrisburg in South Sioux Falls are two fast-growing submarkets within the city. The downtown sector is also thriving with recent office and retail development. Too, the I-29 and I-90 corridors offer easy transport to major Heartland metropolitans and account for the hefty industrial interest in Sioux Falls.

Overall, the Sioux Falls commercial real estate sector has established a healthy cadence of development and filling vacancy across asset classes. As coastal markets face upheavals due to current events, more investors and tenants look to the Sioux Falls MSA as a stable market with consistent growth and ROI. 

Sioux Falls Industrial Market

Industrial leads as one of Sioux Falls’ most robust markets, thanks to the region’s proximity to the I-29 and I-90 passes. The industrial sector saw a 3.55 % vacancy rate headed into 2020, ending the previous year with almost $60 million in sales. We can attribute the low vacancy rate to the unilateral demand growth for the sector in recent years. Too, around 65% of industrial properties are owner-occupied in Sioux Falls. 

In leasing, asking rates hovered between $6.00-7.50 per square foot in Class A buildings at the end of 2019, while Class B and C start at $4.50 per square foot and $3.25 per square foot, respectively. Industrial is likely to stay healthy, thanks to a growing e-commerce sector and limited retail access due to COVID-19.

Sioux Falls Office Market

Sioux Falls’ office sector has seen productive activity in the last few years, particularly in the Downtown submarket. Overall, vacancy rates dropped to 9.87% in the MSA, while the Downtown neighborhood dropped to 5.5% in 2019. Class A buildings are in the highest demand within the asset class, both in development and tenant attraction. 

Office sales accounted for $34 million in transaction value in 2019, up from $20 million in 2018. With leases, 2019’s market closed at rates of approximately $13.10 per square foot in the most desirable markets. However, the impact of COVID-19 may drive interest in suburban office structures as people seek less densely-populated office solutions.

Sioux Falls Retail Market

Compared to coastal markets, Sioux Falls retail assets have seen a minimal impact from the pandemic. Big box spaces have been backfilled while closures have attracted unsolicited investor interest in several listings, per regional brokers. By 2019’s close, the retail vacancy rate rose to 17% up from 15.5% in 2018, while transaction value ranked at approximately $55 million.

Despite setbacks from COVID-19, retail is likely to stay afloat. E-commerce giants still seek to build brick & mortar strongholds, and Gen-Z’s preference for in-person, experiential brand experiences drives traffic towards storefronts. Too, Sioux Falls has remained relatively sheltered from the coronavirus and faced minimal closures.

Sioux Falls Multifamily Market

Multifamily, by far, has the most existing development and demand. Sioux Falls multifamily has seen a sales volume of nearly $100 million over 43 transactions in 2019, up from approximately $75 million in 2018. Cap rates settled around 6.75% in early 2020. This number will likely stay the same as coastal residents look to Sioux Falls as a viable, nature-filled option to escape metropolitan crowds. 

As construction slows from a 2016 high, multifamily vacancy rates are likely to decrease as demand fills the existing inventory.
