    Published by Steve Watts, December 14, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    The very first and most important thing you must know about leasing or purchasing warehouse or other industrial space is whether or not you can avoid the process altogether! There are many avoidance strategies available, but you also shouldn’t delay just for the sake of delay since that isn’t always the correct strategy. There can be good reasons to wait, and good reasons to move forward. Let’s take a bit of time to cover some of those reasons in more detail…

    Published by Eric Hughes, December 4, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    Locating and acquiring the perfect tract of land to develop can be quite challenging. An experienced developer and its real estate broker can conduct initial due diligence to help avoid costly issues. However, more in-depth inspections and research are necessary before finalizing a purchase. Whether a buyer is planning on developing the site or holding for investment purposes for future resale, the required due diligence remains the same.  

    Bottom line, you need to determine if you can do what you want to do with the property, what is that process going to cost and how long will it take…

    Go to Article
    Published by Steve Watts, November 8, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    A dock well is commonly used to provide dock-high loading for a grade-level warehouse. This photo illustrates one of the major advantages for dock wells - the ability to have both dock-high loading/unloading and grade level entry to the building. To use 4’ high containers most effectively, you need to somehow bring the building to the height of the loading platform. One way is to raise the building. Another is to excavate for a below grade level dock well for use as the truck driveway. If you asked designers, they’d probably tell you some combination of the two is most common - i.e., raising the building a bit and lowering the truck well a bit - but less than 4’ -  below grade.

    The dock well has a few disadvantages…

    The Texas (and other State’s) Real Estate Commission (TREC) exists to implement the state laws established around the practice of Real Estate. The state decided at some point - I used to know the date - that consumers need to be protected from fraud and ignorance in the most consequential transactions in which some folks will ever be involved.

    Article Synopsis

    Did you know that your relationship with your real estate broker is fairly similar to your relationship with your attorney. To be sure, there are significant differences - but there are also significant similarities. Of course, we all hope not to have (too) much of a relationship with an attorney - at least when it comes around to legal “troubles.” To judge by current trends in the technology industry, many of us feel the same way about real estate brokers. Is it better to be “cagey” about committing to a real estate broker, or is it better to take the plunge and commit to one?…

    A good while ago - if interested, you can likely tell how long by the dates of some of the posts - I began this journey of creating a web site for commercial real estate seekers.

Finally taking the time to finish off the links to nation-wide Real Estate Commissions (however they are named) seems like a great thing to talk about at least briefly - not to mention an excellent way to tell our users about some of the techniques for finding things…

    This is the official web site of the New Jersey Real Estate regulating body - the New Jersey Real Estate Commission. If you are a prospective or actual buyer or lessee, this is where you can go to learn about what you can and should expect out of the players in your real estate transaction. You can learn about the agents and brokers involved - whether or not their licenses are active (they MUST be for them to deal with you) - and whether or not they have or have had disciplinary action against them. If you are I would suggest that you browse the site just a bit to make sure you know what is there that might be useful to you. Bon apetit.

    Go to Article
    Published by Eric Hughes, December 11, 2014
    Article Synopsis

    12/19/14 Update:

    $56.52 per barrel at close of trading today.  3% increase.  Now let us do this for a few weeks in a row.  Doubtful.

    $55.46 per barrel at 8:32 AM today with morning trading up 2% or so. Interesting that the fall of oil pricing has seemed to slow significantly, albeit for 2-3 days. If pricing settles in the mid $50’s per barrel for more than 3-6 months, Houston will be shedding some jobs and businesses. My customers have already indicated they are putting projects on hold until some reasonable forecasting can be developed on pricing.  Oddly enough, more commercial development was announced in the energy corridor last week for new a new class A office property for lease.

    $60.94 per barrel. That is the price of oil at the time of this post. A month ago oil was trading over $77 a barrel. Where will it stabilize? Only time will tell. What is certain is that Houston faces some real challenges in its industrial real estate market. Warehouses have been leasing and selling at all time highs. Development of bulk distribution is also in full swing. Now the scale back of industry absorbing space and rents will start to suffer. Developers of speculative warehouses for lease or sale are now likely to be sitting on empty buildings for some time with other owners facing tenants who may fold up shop and thereby leaving vacant property. The market was probably due for a correction with new freestanding warehouses trading at $75 to $85 PSF for shells on a purchase and $.75 PSF/month+ on rentals. Heavy leveraged owners are the most vulnerable and others with substantial cash reserves may see some opportunities in the market. Businesses looking for space to lease should see some relief in pricing over the next six months.

    After the initial review of the seller deliveries and tile commitment a good boundary survey is necessary to confirm recorded easements and sometimes will catch unrecorded easements and encroachments. The property survey is a cost to either the buyer or seller and becomes a negotiable item of the transaction.

    The survey should indicate all improvements on the property, utility easements, fire hydrants, fences, curb cuts and much more. Your lender will most likely require a survey in order for them to lend money on the property. A buyer wants be sure he is getting the same amount of dirt which is being represented. A survey is critical.

    Based upon the assumptions contained in this analysis, by owning your own building, you would: (1) save $234,177 in payments over the initial five years, (2) pay down $148,594 on the mortgage, (3) lock in your long term occupancy costs, and (4) get $180,426 in value appreciation based on a 3.00% annual appreciation. This represents a total benefit, AFTER deducting your initial 20% down payment, of $336,637 over just the initial five years.

    Having seen more than a few contaminated properties, I can tell you first hand…you don’t want to be involved in owning one. The environmental study will look for any documented releases on your property or in the vicinity of contamination, letters of closure from your state agencies, UST’s (underground storage tanks), etc.

    Historical aerial photos will show previous uses of the property which may be suspicious. Materials used in the property may prove expensive to re mediate, such as asbestos in floor tiles, insulation and walls.

    A buyer should always hire an attorney for the docs and survey review and relative professionals to do specific inspections.

    These are some of the most basic items of due diligence. A fully exhaustive list and relative explanation would take many pages. This is one of many reasons why you need to utilize an experienced commercial real estate broker when purchasing or leasing office or industrial property.

    Article Synopsis

    Here are five quick tips to remember when renewing your office or industrial lease:

    • Get your broker to provide you a market analysis of comparable rates and then
      negotiate your renewal rate…intelligently
    • If you have a Gross Lease, request to move your Base Year/Expense Stop to
      current in order to avoid excessive pass thrus of expense overages
    • Try to get a cap on controllable Landlord expenses of say 5% to 10% per year max
    • Be sure you have a First Right of Refusal on any adjacent space to allow for
      expansion
    • If your space needs any updating to meet code or just cosmetic upgrades, now is the time to negotiate that into the renewal at the Landlord’s expense

    SO YOU WANT TO BUILD YOUR OWN WAREHOUSE OR OFFICE BUILDING?

    Are you thinking …”Existing property prices are too high! I will build my own warehouse and save a bundle.” If I had a dime for every time we heard this from a client. Unfortunately for them, 99.9% of the time they will pay more, usually much more by taking the task on themselves.

    Steel building companies advertise extensively and will throw out low pricing of the steel package for a building of say $10 or $15 PSF. This number sticks in the mind of the business owner and he thinks then that with the build out and the few extras, he can get in a new building for say $30 or $35 PSF. Experienced developers building very large, basic warehouses are hard pressed to get to those numbers. Why does it cost so much?…
