Common Sense written by Jesse Fowler (2016)

The TIC market has shown incredible increase in value over the last four years.
Analyzing the San Francisco Tenancy in Common (TIC) market for this magazine's readership is always a fun task for me as one year comes to a close and a new one begins. As we look back, see the trends and compare notes from previous years, hopefully we are able to accurately forecast what is to come in this specialized mar- ket niche.
Data analyzed in 2015 seems to have one thread in common with the previous three years (2012, 2013 and 2014): a significant increase in the average sales price per door of TIC units. Between 2012 and 2013, the average unit price climbed more than $150,000. From 2013 to 2014, the average price per unit increased again, from $797,223 to a whopping $966,501 21% increase. As of late November 2015 the average per unit sales price had risen to $1,112,856, an approximately 16% increase! These numbers mean there has been a 72% increase in the price per door since 2011, when the average was $645,904. I repeat: that is a 72% increase in value of the average TIC unit in less than four years! Read more...
