Investment Decisions: Garden vs. High Rise Apartments

There are distinctions between garden and high-rise apartment buildings when viewed as investments.

Help With Investment Real Estate

When you have searched for new real estate investment opportunities, with values that have been changing, you know that finding and evaluating them is becoming more sophisticated and complex. More investors are turning to real estate consultants as a means of providing a sounding board for their ideas as well as expertise in the planning and construction stages for their projects.

Condominiums Built For Business Owners

Like apartment dwellers who are finding that it is less expensive to buy than to rent, business and professional firms are moving toward buying offices rather than leasing. While buying or constructing an entire building is an option for major corporations or for smaller firms outside metropolitan areas, owning commercial space generally means being part of a condominium structure.

The Assemblage Option

The option is an extremely versatile investment tool that comes in a variety of forms and can be used for a variety of purposes. The best part of an option is that it gives the optionee (the party holding the option) control over property (in the sense of the right to acquire it) for a very small cash outlay.

Using The Master Lease as a Seller Guarantee

Although office space is in supply in some locations, development has continued. Business leaders are optimistic about the long term future. Unemployment shows a marked improvement and earnings reports by large corporations are improving.

Needs in Management of Residential Condos

Whether the condos are converted from apartments or built from the ground up, the builder-developer, the project lender and even the unit purchaser in a condominium project should all be concerned with the proper management of the project. Without good management, a project can quickly lose its value and begin a downturn.

Lease Negotiations with Corporate Tenants

A few years ago, senior corporate managers were able to make major real estate decisions by themselves. Now, a negotiating team will negotiate leases. This team may consist of legal counsel, finance department representatives, outside specialists such as real estate brokers or tenant represe
