Landscaping For Profits and Image

Owners and property managers must watch the nickels and dimes as well as the dollars that are spent on the property. Save one dollar in operating costs and (assuming a 10% cap rate) value of the property increases by $10. That is why owners are always looking for new ways to economize. In addition to saving money, we are always looking for a way to invest a little in the property for a good return.

Establishing Value In A Shopping Center

The shopping center of today is a change from the centers built originally. They were a collection of stores for retailing, rather than a newer, more modern mix of businesses and entertainment.

Condo Conversions: A Good Investment

The developer can build a condominium complex from scratch. The time will vary on the location, but it may take years from the start of the first unit. For a quicker time period, the alternative might be a condo conversion.

Your Real Estate Investment

Knowing what you can do in some investment situations can be the difference between an annual profit or loss in your currently owned commercial property or the one you intend to acquire. How you acquire it can be important.

Office Building Comparisons

Newer office buildings may fill up at the expense of older office buildings. Since new buildings cost more to build than the older ones, rents may be higher. The actual dollars-per-square-foot costs must be compared, along with other benefits that the tenant may receive, before a final decision is made by the tenant on staying or moving.

Many Benefits Of A Tax Free Exchange

The main benefit of a tax-free exchange is just that-freedom from a tax. The gain that could be realized by one or both of the principals in the exchange transaction does not need to be recognized at the time of the closing. The gains tax is deferred until the property owner makes a taxable disposition of the new property at some later time.

Management Of Your Investment Portfolio

When you make your investment in real estate, it is implied that you want to make money. The cash can come from direct income from the property or from capital gains from a sale after an increase in value. Either way, the investment must be managed, considered, and watched at all times. If the owner and manager are taking care of business, there may be ways to increase the income, and the value. There is always the possibility to make a sale for the right price and terms. Keeping aware of the market might bring an opportunity to make a tax-deferred exchange into a property with more benefits for the owner.

The Self-Storage Facility: A Good Investment?

The growing demand for self-storage in the U.S. is created by people moving (some 40 million people move each year according to U.S. Census data), and by various lifestyle transitions, such as marriage, divorce, retirement, a death in the family, etc. Recent surveys of self-storage companies indicate a positive trend in market demand and occupancy rate.

First Impression Checklist For Marketing Apartments

A new tenant and an investor share the same impression of an apartment property from the curb. Before marketing apartments, think about the outside appearance. The "look" affects not only an ability to attract prospective buyers, but the rental program as well. First impression by both expected buyers looking and tenants alike are crucial. The following is a checklist of first-impression items that a good property manager must use:
