Choosing The Right Investment Property

No single property can fit all of the investment goals and rules an investor has set. Even if the investor tried to build a property to specifications, he would find some things "not quite right." The investor is, therefore, wise to anticipate problems and have some basic strategies for dealing with them. Here are some suggestions to help the investor devise other approaches to meet special needs:

Upgrade In Office Design

Key executives were the ones who always had the "office with a view." Now, however, on modern buildings built in the past ten years the atrium is now one of the most popular (and expensive) amenities. It is popular because virtually every office can have a window view, either toward the conventional view, the outdoors, or toward the spaciousness and openness provided by the atrium. It is an example of "keeping key employees happy".

Profits From Investing In Land

Land is always a good investment for the long term. With prices down in the recession, land might be better now.

Losing Money in Commercial Real Estate? It Could Be A Good Investment

Real estate activity is picking up throughout the country. Commercial real estate has been less affected than the loan problems in homes. If fact, apartments have benefited. But in investment properties, when cash expenses are more than cash receipts, there is negative cash flow. Most investors avoid properties where this is the situation, unless there are strong underlying economic factors that indicate the cash flow can become positive.

Contact Your Property Manager Before Your Real Estate Investment

If you are about to acquire an income property, consider contacting the management company in advance. The ability to estimate income and expenses and a keen knowledge of the market makes the manager a valuable asset during the preacquisition process. The property manager has the background necessary to provide significant assistance in determining both the location, desirability and economic feasibility of a property.

A Three Party Real Estate Exchange

In a two-way exchange, the owner may use a deferred exchange, which sells the property for cash, which is then held by an intermediary until the owner chooses a replacement property. That property is then purchased for the owner by the intermediary. This may not be satisfactory because of the time limits in this type of exchange.

Commercial Development In Rights Of Way

In many metropolitan areas, commercial land for development is in very short supply. Developers are converting older warehousing to shopping areas, demolishing existing buildings to build new projects in areas in transition. However there may be many hundreds or even thousands of parcels of property that have been overlooked. Many are ready for commercial development close to downtown areas, suburban commercial developments, and densely populated areas. Owners of many of these properties consider the property as "surplus" and have not considered development.

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.

Reasons For A Real Estate Exchange

The real estate exchange takes more patience and hard work to set up a successful exchange than it does to arrange a straight purchase and sale. Some property owners and their agents simply do not understand the benefits of an exchange or are worried about the strict requirements imposed by the Internal Revenue Code.

Investing In The Self-Storage Industry

Self-storage facilities (originally known as mini-warehouses) are relatively new investments compared to apartments, office buildings, retail or industrial. Approximately 50 percent of the current inventory of space has been built in the past 10 years. This has been the result of increased demand, with the number of people using self-storage having increased at a pace faster than population growth.
