Democratizing Nearshoring: 100 Ladrillos will invest 150 million pesos in industrial warehouses through crowdfunding.
The platform's strategy will focus on properties for last-mile logistics operations in the United States and spaces for manufacturing processes in northern Mexico.
The dynamism in Mexico's industrial real estate market, driven by supply chain reconfiguration and the arrival of companies, has caught the attention of the real estate crowdfunding platform 100 Ladrillos. The company aims to capitalize on the opportunities presented by nearshoring to democratize its benefits. The goal for 2023 is to raise a total of 300 million pesos, of which 150 million will be allocated to the industrial warehouse segment, as Mexico has become an attractive destination for global manufacturers due to supply shortages and trade restrictions between the United States and China.
The high demand for industrial warehouses in key markets such as Mexico City and Monterrey, with an occupancy rate exceeding 98%, has led to significant increases in rental prices, benefiting investors. Over the past three years, rents for these assets have increased three times the inflation rate, rising from 4 to 7 dollars per square meter due to a shortage of supply.
100 Ladrillos' strategy focuses on properties for last-mile logistics operations in the United States and spaces for manufacturing processes in northern Mexico. Currently, 30% of investment opportunities on the platform are industrial properties that must meet criteria such as commercial appeal to tenants, financial attractiveness to investors, a secure structure, suitable design, and freedom from legal conflicts. The platform aims to democratize access to the real estate sector, allowing the general public to participate in nearshoring opportunities through crowdfunding. The vision is for the collective to become the primary property manager in the country, with crowdfunding platforms surpassing Real Estate Investment Trusts (Fibras) in terms of investors and managed assets. Collaboration with authorities is aimed at overcoming regulatory limitations and promoting investor access to the real estate market, seen as the "era of the general investor."
