NAI Affinity President, Jake Hallauer, CCIM, shared his market expertise with the Coloradoan for this article, and in summary: "Hallauer estimated that triple net expenses — which encompass property taxes, building insurance and maintenance — have increased up to threefold for some Fort Collins tenants. While some restaurant owners were able to renegotiate their leases for below-market rent at the beginning of COVID-19, many are now facing higher rent after more recent lease renewals, Hallauer also acknowledged. "Unfortunately, in the coming years, you’re going to see more restaurant failures than you’ve seen in the past few," Hallauer said, noting that the local food scene will likely continue to see a lot of turnover as restaurants close and new ones move in to backfill their space."
