SIG Comes Into 2021 Like a Lion, Closing More Than $125M in a Single Month

South Carolina-based Sands Investment Group (SIG) is building momentum in 2021 after tallying up a remarkable end to an unpredictable 2020, closing 49 deals in December totaling over $125 million with an additional 30-plus closings in January totaling $63,405,556. Closings spanned multiple product types including automotive, convenience, drugstore, industrial, medical, restaurant and retail.

SIG is roaring into 2021 after a year of adept maneuvering. SIG Founder and CEO, Chris Sands, is optimistic about the year ahead, “Despite the challenges we’ve seen this year has been very inspiring and eye opening in terms of demonstrating the stability of commercial real estate through shifting times.”

When COVID-19 paused the commercial real estate market, three tiers of buyers emerged: those who took a complete pause, those who fully forged ahead with high-risk investments and those in the majority who took calculated risks on concepts expected to remain stable during the pandemic and beyond.

The pandemic pivot in investor trends along with anticipated healthy growth in industrial sale leaseback will be the basis for assessment and confident strides that will dominate 2021. Ongoing vaccine rollout has investors coming into the year with new optimism, cementing a belief in the resiliency of non-cyclical net lease.

“The fundamentals of real estate will still ring true: good locations, good tenants and continued review and enhancement of an investor’s full portfolio. By keeping a smart and strategic mindset that aligns with their core principles, investors will have the ability to continually adjust to the changing market and maximize their return in the long term.” said Sands.
