Posted by Chris Comments Off on Healthy Economy Requires Updated Real Estate Strategy

Cushman & Wakefield published the U.S. Macro Forecast this month with promising news. Many key factors in the overall health of our economy are pointing to U.S. GDP growth accelerating. As an intelligent tenant, I always recommend you meet with a broker at least 12-14 months prior to your lease expiration. In today’s climate you can expect to find fewer options available to you, rents that are higher than what you are currently paying and longer term requirements from landlords, 3-5 years at a minimum.

Major advantages to the buying decision are flexibility, agility and possible gain on the value of a building asset. A company with good credit that purchases a building, leases it to themselves and then places it on the market for sale can potentially achieve a substantial profit.

Posted by Chris Comments Off on Q4 2013 Market Update – Positive Abosorption But Less Than Expected

According to Kevin Thorpe, Cassidy Turley’s Chief Economist, office vacancy across the U.S. is “clearly tightening, but at a rate that is much slower than past recoveries. Steady job growth and lack of new development has vacancy falling in 70% of the country, but the office sector is still adjusting to the new era of tenant downsizing and space efficiency.” We anticipate tenant activity levels will pick up in 2014 over 2013 but like our economist notes, we have the trends of downsizing and space efficiency keeping our growth down to a moderate pace. This post covers some of the stats for 2013 for the Bay Area Commercial Real Estate market.

NASA just finished its latest effort, a 50,000 sf office building at the Moffett Field Ames Research Center in Sunnyvale, California. It is being advertised as the “greenest” federal building. For years now, commercial office buildings have been the focus of sustainability groups and the next big push for making our world a more environmentally friendly place to live and work. It is true, there is a lot of energy to be saved and we can still improve upon the standards we all live by in our commercial buildings. NASA may have just set the bar for all of us.

Posted by Chris Comments Off on Why Do Market Reports Matter?

You meet with your commercial real estate broker or talk on the phone and he gives you a market report for your area. Why? Isn’t it his job to know all those rent, vacancy and absorption numbers? Why should you care? The answers are important for your current and future business and may help you make business decisions aside from real estate.
