With the corporate bond market yields still in the 2-percent range, the tendency will be to mitigate upward pressure on the real estate yields. The Federal Reserve may raise interest rates by as much as 2 percent during 2017, which will cause triple-net leased property cap rates to rise only slightly since that expectation is built into the market. While there may be slight adjust- ments, the triple-net lease market will continue a fairly steady course this year. Ryan Lorey, CCIM, is a director at Calkain Companies in Herndon, Va.
