commercial investment real estate: Only Chuck Norris can save the Commercial Real Estate Market - 11/15/09 12:57 AM
Even as some sectors of the US economy see a return to growth, woes in commercial real estate are deepening, raising fears that the fragile recovery could falter.
Unlike the US home market, which has shown signs of rebounding, recovery is elusive in commercial real estate, a sector which includes apartments, offices and industrial and retail properties.
The Moody's commercial property index fell 3.0 percent in October, and remains 32.8 percent down from a year earlier and 40.3 percent lower than two years ago. "Although prices have declined steadily over the past year, the rate of decline has slowed in recent … (4 comments)

Commercial Real Estate Exposure Catches Banks in Economic Downdraft
Banks Report Deterioration in Nonresidential Loan Portfolios, Tighten Purse Strings

Banks began issuing their fourth quarter reports this week and a potential major trend appears to be the negative effect deteriorating business conditions are beginning to have on the credit quality of their commercial real estate loan portfolios.
In addition, banks are reporting they expect the credit quality of their portfolios will only continue to worsen. Not surprisingly, bankers also noted that the overall demand for loans has declined and so has the credit quality … (4 comments)

commercial investment real estate: How not to make an offer - 01/18/09 12:14 AM
I just received this offer via email this morning...
"all cash deal 2.2m dollars ?"
How many issues exist with this offer... Let me count the ways...

#1.  All Cash Deal - In essence, does this not mean, I will go to the bank and get financing and your Seller will get paid off with a check or is the Buyer trying to indicate, they will show up to closing with a steel briefcase loaded with $2.2 Million dollars...
#2.  Who are you...  Other then some random indistinguishable address like, does the cloak of invisibility help you or hurt … (15 comments)

commercial investment real estate: Chasing Dreams v. Reality Check - 01/13/09 12:17 AM
Is now the time to chase a dream?
Is now the time to buckle down and cement a reputation for yourself in RE?
These questions, of course, can only truly be answered by the person contemplating them...  We recently added a new agent to our office who is family and most likely the long-term future of the company, in our eyes.
Yesterday he sat down separately both with our broker (his uncle, my step-father) and delivered his most difficult pitch to this point, i am sure of that.  He is leaving us in 4-6 months to chase down a dream and … (11 comments)

This year, pain to replace gain...
Nary a bright spot in CoStar Group's first ever state of the Market/Industry Outlook...
The pain felt throughout the U.S. housing market over the past two years is going to catch up with commercial real estate in 2009 when the country will begin to see spikes in office vacancy rates climbing as much as 300 to 400 basis points with many markets expected to experience severe negative net absorption.
That was the assessment of Andrew Florance, founder and CEO of CoStar Group Inc., as presented in the company’s first-ever 2009 State of the Office … (2 comments)

commercial investment real estate: Investors - Single Family or Multi Family Properties? - 11/17/08 10:34 AM
I'm sure you read my post and I like that your blog got me thinking and my juices flowing, so I wanted to play devils advocate on my page. 

Investors always ask what kind of property they should buy. Many start the business thinking that a multi unit building is their best bet.  My recommendation to them is to start with a single family house.
I do not invest in small multi family complexes.  I prefer single family houses for rental units.  I have had many … (4 comments)

commercial investment real estate: Don't Shoot First and ask Questions Later!... Unless you feel lucky punk? Well, do Ya? - 11/17/08 05:46 AM
If there is any good thing that has come out of the recent crisis in the mortgage industry in the U.S., it is that some people who have always had an interest in investing in real estate are now finding that dropping prices are making it possible for them to do that. Today, investing in commercial real estate, whether it's residential properties to rent or office and industrial buildings, is quickly becoming a hot ticket item with some. Before you just jump in with both feet so to speak, consider the following tips and cautions.

First off, remember that unlike … (3 comments)

commercial investment real estate: Renting vs. Leasing. - 11/15/08 08:04 AM
On a daily basis I receive calls from people interested in leasing retail space in some of the shopping centers that I lease and when I tell them the price, most people do not first. The dialogue is usually starts off with someone asking me the price after seeing a sign. They almost always ask, "how much is the space" and my answer is always something like "$25 per square foot(psf)". My response is always followed up with, "oh ok, so its around $2,500 a month. That's not too bad".
Well, my colleagues...this is where retail education is lacking. When … (4 comments)

commercial investment real estate: Midwest Blossoming - 11/15/08 01:31 AM
I imagine you have heard recent headlines of "Job Loss", "Foreclosure" and "Bankruptcy/Failure"!
"A HEADLINE IN A RECENT issue of Forbes screamed "America's Fastest Dying Cities." Guess what? Six of the top 10 were located in the Midwest-four in Ohio (Youngstown, Canton, Dayton, and Cleveland) and two in Michigan (Detroit and Flint).
The story said these cities face "fleeing populations, painful waves of unemployment and barely growing economies." One might naturally conclude that multifamily investors are leaving the Midwest for greener pastures-except they're not. In fact, local and regional multifamily investors are still investing their money in America's heartland-even in Detroit … (0 comments)

Now we all do some form of print advertising, whether it be the local newspaper, harmon homes/grocery store brochures, mailing brochures/postcards, etc. but a twist on "pounding the pavement" that has served me well is scouting the classified ads and creating a file that I use to cut out ads and store them, research them (owner/transfer data/prop data, etc) and most importantly, contact the seller/lessor as we already … (13 comments)
