    Article Synopsis

    There is a lot of news out there. We are trying to pick a few of the ariticles that are more relevant to the industries we serve. Today we have articles about the economy (since things are moving very quickly, this can’t help but be a bit dated but still interesting to see progression), the Port of Houston, and a discussion with the Texas Railroad Commissioner about the Texas and World Oil & Gas markets.

    Port Houston to receive millions for Bayport terminal expansion, Houston Business Journal, 11Mar2020

    HBJ released an article discussing a Grant presented on 10Mar2020 to Port Houston for $21.8M and Port of Corpus Christi for $17.6M. Port Houston will use the funds to expand the Bayport Container Terminal and Port of Corpus Christi will use the funds to partially refurbish docks. The article goes on to discuss various activities at both ports.

    Warning Bells Sound for U.S. Economy As Virus Squeezes Ports, Yahoo Finance, 10Mar2020

    As of 10Mar2020, the shipping industry - “accustomed to running at full speed this time of year” - is watching a shipping slowdown “tied to the coronavirus.” China shuttering factories is a big factor in slowing shipments into the country. Low demand for longshore labor is causing alarm, per “Jock O’Connell, a foreign trade consultant in CA.” No one knows for sure, but we think we could still be early in this downturn. Buckle up!

    Texas oil regulator: ‘What our eyes are on is not the pain of today. It’s the pain of the future, Dallas Business Journal, 21Mar2020

    This is an interview with Ryan Sitton, Texas Railroad Commissioner. The article is centered around what if any extraordinary action Texas should take in light of the bottom dropping out from under oil prices. He discusses possible national collaboration with OPEC, dictated slowing of production, and his opinion that oil demand will be here for the long haul.

    Posted by Steve Watts, on 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.


    Article Outline 


    • Why Change Your Situation?
    • Why Maintain Your Situation?
    • Why Change - Location 
    • Why Change - Capacity 
    • Why Change - Suitability 
    • Why Change - Costs

    • Avoid Moving - Property Improvements 
    • Avoid Moving - Productivity Improvements 
    • Summary 


    Why Change Your Situation?


    There are many reasons why a business might feel the need to make a change. Some reason categories here include:

    • Location 
    • Capacity 
    • Suitability 
    • Costs 

    I’ll use these broad categories later to cover in a bit more detail information supporting a move.


    Why Maintain Your Situation? 


    Some factors argue against making a change. Some reason categories here include:

    • Cost to Move 
    • Business Disruption 
    • Workforce Impact 
    • Customer Impact 

    I’ll use these broad categories later to cover in a bit more detail information supporting staying in your current location.


    Why Change - Location 


    Location affects many factors of your business. You could be attempting to position your business to improve your proximity to your existing or potential:

    • Workforce 
    • Supplier base 
    • Distribution channels 
    • Customers 
    • Etc. 

    These are all specific to your company and are difficult to generalize, but can all be good reasons to make a change.


    Why Change - Capacity 


    In this case, you have likely determined that your current space no longer matches your needs from a capacity perspective - either your business has grown beyond, or shrank below what your existing area will sustain. Either way, this can be a strong motivator to make a change.


    Why Change - Suitability 


    Suitability can be the need for equipment that does not fit, is too heavy for, or required utilities not provided by your current building. You might need more loading docks, larger trucks, more maneuvering space, etc. 


    Why Change - Costs 


    A common reason here is that your landlord has made one-too-many lease rate or capital improvement expense increases, and you believe you can do significantly better elsewhere.


    Why Maintain - Cost to Move 


    Moving an existing business from one location to another is a significant expense - over and above your regular cost of doing business. A move will result in lease expenses from two buildings for a finite period. You can likely assume that you do not have resources not being utilized, so you must hire or contract temporary support to help you move. You will also be likely to need to spend to avoid business disruption (see below).


    Why Maintain - Business Disruption 


    If you manufacture products, you will likely want to build an inventory buffer of these products before you move to avoid disrupting your customers. This type of disruption “insurance” can be difficult to implement depending upon the state of your manufacturing capacity, relationships to your customer, and your reasons for moving. Similar reasoning can apply regardless of the activities performed in your building.


    Why Maintain - Workforce Impact 


    As with any change, the relocation of your business will have an impact on your workforce. The implementation of disruption “insurance,” changes in their commute, or the requirement for employees to relocate are some examples.


    Why Maintain - Customer Impact 


    Any change - e.g., moving from one building to another - creates risk for your customers. They have to be sure that the products you supply to them from location B are going to be equivalent to those you provided from location A. What if something goes wrong with your move and the disruption “insurance” you put in place is insufficient? What if your customer’s requirement for your product suddenly changes in the middle of your move, and you cannot meet that requirement?


    Avoid Moving - Property Improvements 


    If you have transitioned in your business from needing all grade-level to some dock-level loading, but your building has only grade-level access, then you should consider working with your landlord to add a dock-well on the property. Assuming you both believe you are a good tenant, there is a chance they will work with you if the property is suited. Adding a dock-well is one example of a property addition that can be a win-win between landlord and tenant.


    Avoid Moving - Productivity Improvements 


    One of the more common reasons for deciding to move involves some form of “output/square foot” calculation. This calculation probably indicates that you don’t have enough space to accommodate people, equipment, inventory, etc.. Hopefully, you made productivity and other assessments a large part of your decision process. There are many ways - apart from moving to a larger building - to address this issue. Some of these are:

    • Using Lean Tools or other approaches to redesign your business processes for productivity improvement 
    • Product line strategy assessment to see if there are products you can/should cut back on. The evaluation could also show you that you need expansion more urgently 
    • Determine whether or not there are businesses that can help you offload one or more functions you perform in your current building to make space (outsource) 

    There are other approaches to create more (or less) space. There are probably 10’s or 100’s of ways to describe these things based upon the terminology of the day. 


    Summary 


    We hope this has helped you think through your potential move. We’re not trying to say moving is a bad thing, but it can be expensive and disruptive. If you have been inspired and wish to explore this further, feel free to drop us a line with questions. Some consultants specialize in productivity improvement activities. Contacting a local university business management or operations engineering program can also sometimes bear fruit if you are willing the work with them. In any case, we wish you all the best of luck in your move - or not.

    Synopsis Posted by Steve Watts, on August 3, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    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. TREC has come a long way in simplifying what it thinks the consumer needs to know.

    They require a lot of things, but some of the most important center around setting up a relationship with a Real Estate professional. They want you to know that until you have an agreed upon relationship with your Broker, you can not assume that they work for you because by statute, they do not. This doesn’t mean that they are allowed to lie to you - just that their duty is to provide their client with the best possible information, and that until you are their client, you need to assume their client is someone else.

    They do a much better job of explaining it than I do with their Consumer Protection Notice, which talks about where to file a complaint, what recovery options are available to you as a consumer, and how to get more information. Add to that their Information About Brokerage Services document, which explains in detail the professionals you will be working with, the minimum duties of these professionals to their client, and more detail about the different ways a given Brokerage can represent you in your Real Estate transaction. This information is critical to you and to your understanding about who to trust and what to share. TREC requires all Real Estate professionals in Texas to provide this information to you BEFORE they conduct substantive discussions with  you about your Real Estate needs.

    There is a good deal of useful information on the TREC Web Site. You can investigate the licensing status of anyone you are considering using as your Real Estate professional, including complaints lodged against them. Most of it is aimed at the Real Estate professional, so you might well consider it pretty dry reading (not that a Real Estate professional doesn’t…).

    Every state has rules set out for this situation. I haven’t reviewed the regulations of any other state in detail, but it is my  understanding that all states regulate these transactions to some, and probably to a similar degree.

    Posted by Steve Watts,
    Article Synopsis

    Real Estate Word Cloud Infographic ImageDid 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?

    Regulated Industry

    Both attorneys AND real estate brokers (and their agents) are tightly regulated by the states (maybe al statesl, but I certainly it’s the case in Texas where I live and believe it applies broadly). They are both expected to be fiduciaries. Attorneys can take upon themselves broad fiduciary responsibilities as defined between themselves and their clients. A real estate broker is generally limited to fiduciary responsibilities in the area of real estate with an extended obligation to only engage in types of real estate in which they are knowledgable. An example would be an agent who has only handled residential suddenly representing themselves as experts of retail or office properties.

    In most areas of your life, you can walk around and conduct business for yourself - buy a hot dog, rent a car, etc., etc. There may be rules those you deal with have to follow and prescribed rules around the transactions, but in most cases you have to look out for yourself - buyer beware and all that. In the real estate industry, buyer (and seller) beware applies as well, but the states I know about have decided that you will in most cases have a real estate professional helping to look out for your interests. Yes, you read that right - in most cases, it is strongly encouraged (not quite required) that a primary party to a real estate transaction employs the services of a real estate professional. If you’re wealthy, there are some ways around it that might save you money, but given the way most real estate regulations are structured, you should really be asking yourself why would I try to do it without a broker in my corner? The transaction fees required for their involvement are generally already built into most real estate transactions.

    Possible Upsides to Using a Broker

    This would be a long list if I were to list them all - I’ll list a few from various sources including the Texas Administrative Code, the rules of the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC), and other sources for your consideration. A licensee must:

    • Exercise a standard of duty and care…”
    • Behave with “fidelity” by treating all parties to a transaction fairly (yes, the definitions of fairness are defined about as clearly as one could define them)
    • Behave with “integrity” by using “caution to avoid misrepresentation by acts of commission or omission.”
    • Maintain competence - in other words, you have a right to expect that if you utilize a professional, that this professional knows his/her business and can help you competently.

    This list could go on and on, and is highly specific to cases that have been encountered in any given state. If the above list isn’t enough, let me add a kicker that might push you over the edge. If you can prove the broker you hired isn’t what your real estate commission says he/she must be or doesn’t do the things your real estate commissions says he/she must do, that real estate commission has the teeth to enforce the rules they set out by force of law. In TEXAS, TREC maintains a fund collected from licensees to make certain that they can make settlements should they decide there were violations that warrant settlements.

    In layman’s terms, find a qualified broker with good communication skills and work with them exclusively. They will put in the time and effort using their resources to find, or sell/lease the property you want. Let them do the work while you manage your business and personal life.

    Possible Downsides to Using a Broker

    There are probably no real downsides to using the right “qualified” broker to represent you. However, we can touch upon why you want to be careful in your selection. The following is an attempt at a list - which I expect to improve and enhance over time:

    1. Using a broker who does not have adequate knowledge or the property type and area in which you are interested. They can waste your time, likely miss opportunities, and can possibly expose you to legal action. After all, no one wants to jeopardize a real estate transaction and have to pursue or defend a legal action with or because of an incompetent broker!
    2. Good communication skills are not as common as you would think among real estate professionals. Some of the most intelligent brokers are not that polished at communicating. The better brokers know what questions to ask, and how to actively listen so that they understand the client’s needs.

    Quick Summary

    When I was pursuing my license originally here in Texas, I was amazed to see the detail with which TREC describes their expectations for ethical behavior, and for the behaviors they expect in general. Not to brag (well, maybe), but it was not all that difficult for me since the bulk of it was how I strive to do business in any case. Evidently there must be people out there who need a lot of help, guidance, and at least a little enforcement - because the states decided that this industry, along with a few others, requires fairly tight regulation. Please seriously consider willingly letting a broker take you under his/her wing and help you through what tends to be a fairly complex business transaction - sooner rather than later!

    Synopsis Posted by Steve Watts, on July 27, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    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. I hoped to fill the site with as much useful information as I could manage. Four or five other web sites under my belt later and I’m back to reassess and push forward. 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 this type of information on our site.

    The first thing to know - and if you are reading this you already know 1 way to find this article - it’s the FINDthisSPACE web site Articles and Links structure. Posts on our site are one of two things (so far) - 1) a BLOG Post like this one, and 2) a Link to useful information elsewhere on the web. In both cases, you can view the summary of all Posts, or Articles and Links on our Articles and Links page here. On this page, you’ll find all of them listed in chronological order with “sticky” articles we feel we need to prioritize at the top. If you just want to browse, this is probably where you want to be.

    For those of you who want to find information faster, we’ve provided a few ways to narrow things down. We’ve provided:

    • Good, old fashioned (I think anyway) Tags,
    • Place Tags that help you narrow down to a location,
    • Commercial Real Estate Type Tags to help you further focus your article selection.

    At this point, all the Real Estate Commission Links/Synopses are Tagged with Consumer Advocacy and State Regulations (I may use more tags as we go along on these). If you see one of these Tags under a synopsis on the BLOG page, you can click on that Tag and it will narrow (filter) the BLOG page by Tag - which I’m calling “tagify.” These links are also available on the BLOG Post/Article page (accessed under News and Info - the Articles & Links (A&L) link) after the article. These links work the same. Note that these Place Tags aren’t links yet - I’m working on that.

    As implied above, Place Tags are still under development. They have a good deal of potential. Right now, the best way to get to the state you want without browsing the entire set of posts is to use the “By Metro” under News and Info. Click on your state, and then on any of the Metro areas within that state to get the one you want. Anything Place-tagged with a state will appear with that filter.

    The last is the Commercial Real Estate type flag. This, too, is under continued development, but as of now it works as you might expect. There’s not a lot of content currently that requires this filter, but I expect that to change over time.

    If you end up finding these tags (filters) useful, you may also want to register with our site. Each of these tag types have their own saving mechanism, as do BLOG Posts themselves.

    Thanks for having a look and check back often!

    Article Synopsis

    Eric Hughes with Centermark Commercial Real Estate brokered the land sale of 15 acres on the West side of 59N just North of Rankin Rd.  The Buyer, an oil and gas company based in Mexico, will use the site for a new distribution and manufacturing facility.

    15 Acres of Raw Land Houston

    The Site 

    The site was rectangular in shape with excellent access and frontage via 59 North on the West side.  Almost completely cleared, the tract is level and outside the 100 and 500 year flood plains.  Additionally, water and sewer will be provided via private utilities since City connections are more than 300’ away from the property boundaries.  A curb cut permit from the Texas Department of Transportation was secured by the Seller.

    The Market 

    This was one of the last sites available in the area with frontage on 59 north and not in the flood plain.  Consequently, viable development tracts in the area are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.  With proximity to the airport, affordable housing and general amenities, this land parcel is well located for any new business.  An added benefit, the site has good access to Beltway 8, 59 north, Rankin Rd and Will Clayton Parkway.

    The Trend  

    Northeast Houston and Kingwood have been the last to see the type of growth relative to Kingwood, Sugar Land, Katy and Fairfield areas in or near Houston.  However, with the Grand Parkway finally making its way around the far Northeast side of Houston (Grand Parkway spurs development)  and the development of ExxonMobil’s new campus, there is a significant increase in demand for land along the 59 North corridor.

    Article Synopsis

    Having just completed a six month search for “warehouse for sale” property for a client to purchase, I can tell you definitively that the far West Katy and Brookshire industrial market is significantly under served.  We finally settled on a 17,000 SF warehouse building with 2,000 SF of office finish and sitting on 5 acres of land.  Pricing is in the $1,300,000 range.

    Map of Currently Available Warehouses in Katy, TXWith approximately ten warehouses available to purchase in this growing market West of Houston, the task of locating an industrial building which fits a buyers needs can be quite challenging.  Freestanding options to buy are typically have grade level foundations and may be metal or tilt-wall in construction.  For owners needing dock high loading, dock wells can be installed to accommodate container loading and unloading.

    The few “new” warehouse for sale options are priced in the $90 to $110 PSF range and generally have minimal outside storage.  Several options though are located on five to 10 acres of land and a bit further North and West of Katy.  Those options have improvements of older construction and typically metal buildings.

    Some of the options only lasted a few days or weeks before being contracted to sell.  The exploding residential development with sought after Katy school district and Class retail options have created a huge demand from business owners living West of Houston.

    What about the energy bust from a few years ago and the resulting slump in the energy corridor?  Although there is still office space oversupply in that far west market, the industrial warehouse market has continued mostly unaffected for the past five or six years.  Also, the oil and gas market is strong as of today.  And while the industry is more cautious with spending, small operations still need a facility to service the big companies.

    So build it…right?  Not so fast.  Building a facility, even one smaller in footprint, takes time.  An owner generally needs 12 months to get a new building up and ready to occupy.  Additionally, land prices have gone through the roof with new homes, retail, apartments and medical development.  The result is that a new 20,000 SF warehouse with about 20% office finish on approximately 2-3 acres will cost around $90 - $100 PSF to build.

    Regardless of your industrial needs, if you are looking for a new space or want to sell or lease  an existing location, give us a call.  We have been in the Houston Industrial brokerage business for more than 26 years.

  • library_books Where to find cheap warehouse space - Houston
    Go to Article
    Posted by Eric Hughes, on October 4, 2018 and Updated on August 17, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    One of the first questions from many clients is “Where can we find cheap warehouse space.”  Let’s face it, monthly rental payments constitute a large percentage of a company’s operating expenses.   If you are looking for space to rent in Houston, you can find practically the same space in different locations and for noticeably different rental rates.

    Why do the rental rates vary so much?  Age of the building is the primary factor.  Followed by location, building function and of course demand.  Buildings with specific amenities such as rail access, heavy crane service or large stabilized yard will bring a higher rate than those industrial properties without such options.

    Where is the cheap (inexpensive) warehouse space in Houston?  Industrial property located around the 610 Loop in generally the least expensive.  Dock high distribution space on Market St, Wallisville Rd, South Loop, Fairway Park and old Hempstead Rd will start in the $.50’s PSF per month on a gross basis.  New lease space in ESFR fire sprinklered buildings of the same size will run the $.60’s to $.70’s PSF per month on a gross basis.  Warehouse space for lease near Intercontinental airport will be somewhere in between these rates for comparable space.

    Since Houston has no zoning regulations, warehouses are mixed in with other types of developments and consequently can be difficult to find if you are not familiar with the market.  If “cheap” space is your goal, enlist a qualified broker to assist you in your property search.

    Go to Article
    Posted by Eric Hughes, on June 23, 2018 and Updated on August 17, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    Here is a recent survey we completed for a client requiring 15,000 to 22,000 SF of industrial space to lease in Houston with dock high loading, proximity to the port of Houston and reasonable rental rates.  This is a challenging requirement as small dock high spaces are scarce all over Houston, much less near the ship channel and in East Houston.

    • 1. xxxx Wayside Dr.: (.38 nnn, .166 opex) $10,088.99 monthly, 16,588 total sf.  This building had the additional showroom added which switched the office/warehouse ratio.
    • 2. xxxx Supply Row: (.35 nnn, .10 opex) $9,000 monthly, 20,000 total sf. This was a good site to check out as it provided more insight regarding the logistical side of loading and unloading. Upside seems to have several bays. The downside to me was the clear height and potentially have to cram several containers in closed quarters seems like a logistical nightmare.
    • 3. xxxx S Loop East : (.36 nnn, .15 opex) $10,009.77 monthly, 19,627 total sf. Good office/warehouse ratio, 22’ clear height, 3 dock high doors, 1 ramp door.
    • 4. xxxx Homestead Rd: (.38 nnn, .106 opex) $10,551.06 monthly, 21,710 total sf. It has minimal office over 20,000 sf of shop and 6 dock high doors and 1 ramp.

    Go to Article
    Posted by Eric Hughes, on November 7, 2017 and Updated on August 17, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    There is a lack of distribution warehouse space for lease within a 20 mile radius of the container terminals (namely Bayport and Barbours Cut) in far East Houston/La Porte.  Despite the long awaited Panama Canal widening and continued record exports from the Port of Houston, developers seem to have forgotten the small to midrange industrial dock high user.

    Numerous large scale, big box distribution facilities have been recently been completed in the area.  So why a shortage of smaller dock high buildings and/or lease spaces?  Bulk distribution buildings do not easily allow for demising of lease space under 30,000 to 40,000 SF due to the building depths.  Additionally, it is difficult to justify smaller, shallower spec buildings as construction costs are generally higher without economy of scale.

    Where do these businesses find suitable lease space?  In many cases, not in Houston or the surrounding areas.  They may opt for other Gulf coast ports in Louisiana, Florida and even Brownsville, TX.  If they want to stay in Houston and still locate with relative proximity to the Port, then they have a better chance to find available lease space near Loop 610 and I-10 East.  Wallisville Rd., Turning Basin, Market Street, East Freeway and McCarty Rd all have a dense concentration of small to midrange warehouse spaces offered for lease.  This submarket also has some of the lowest rental rates, for comparable space, in the Houston area.

    Article Synopsis

    When determining the amount of Warehouse Storage space required for your business, it is important to determine not only the amount of floor space required but also cubic capacity.  The maximum allocation of space should be use for the bulk of your business needs.  The next factor to consider in warehouse storage is clear height.  Several business will utilize a pallet racking system which is generally cheap, safe and a very efficient method of storage.  Another option for Warehouse storage is block storage, which is an even simpler and cheaper method than the pallet racking system.  The use of either system will help determine the overall requirement for warehouse floor space and ceiling height.

    Other factors like fire protection (fire sprinkler systems), type of inventory being stored, product weight and required staging areas will also affect the warehouse space needed to operate a particular business.

    Article Synopsis

    This article describes the method provided to help you sort through articles and links on our site. The site uses a system of categories and filters to help you narrow things down to your interests, and lets you save them and archive them so that they won’t be included in the future.

    This graphic below is an attempt to illustrate some the first-level methods for sorting Articles & Links (A&L). All A&Ls are grouped in the blue stack box. These can be sorted by CRE Type (yellow) and Metro Areas (yellow). CRE Types in this case will be all types available on our site. Metro Areas in this case will be Metro Areas where there is some activity. In each of these cases, you may save one or more CRE Type or Metro Area (gray) to use directly as filters, and if you have then links will show up for these with a count of the number of Areas or Types. The result of this sorting would be filtered lists of A&Ls.

    Additionally, each article - with the exception of “sticky” articles which will already show up - can be saved for later use or eliminated from future consideration by archiving it.

    Go to External Link
    Synopsis Posted by Steve Watts, on December 6, 2016
    Article Synopsis

    This is THE FIRST post on FIND this SPACE. It seems apt that it should be centered on explaining why this site was created. There are trends in the real estate technology sector moving toward helping a real estate “seeker” find a property that suits him/her on their own. Interestingly, the real estate industry is not really structured to support this approach, and for those who know already or can be convinced, we aim to help potential real estate clients find a practitioner who is anxious to help them find the space that best suits their needs.

    Real Estate law is normally structured so that both parties - the seller/lessor and the buyer/lessee - must have representation by a real estate professional except under very narrow circumstances (e.g. if you are an estate attorney). That said, there is a hole that many buyers/lessees fall through that is important to note. If you are seeking property and do not yet have this representation, any seller/lessor representative will call you a customer unless they can make you into a client. The difference is that a client is entitled to the fiduciary duty of his/her representative, whereas a customer should assume that the representative of the buyer/lessor owes their fiduciary duty to the seller/lessor. They must make their position in the relationship clear to you and treat you honestly, BUT you should NOT share information with this representative that you do not wish to share with the seller/lessor as it can seriously damage your negotiating position. Making sure you understand that you are a customer and not a client is the attempt of regulators to notify you of this actual conflict of interest. Note that if you tell them at your first meeting that you do not have, but would like representation, there are provisions requiring them to eliminate this conflict of interest. You should still be very careful what you say until your representation and representative are established.

    What I hope the above did was convince you to engage buyer’s/lessee’s representation. It generally costs you nothing, and brings you real advantages. This is important to protect your interests and to have someone in your corner. In some cases for a given location, we’ve already made a selection of a credible broker who would be willing to represent you. If we haven’t already made a selection in an area that you are interested, we will likely help you make a selection if you like. If you don’t see your area of the country in the “Localize” section, just request a property search or use “Get Answers” to make your request. I’ve developed, and continue to refine a process for this selection which I expect will be helpful to you.

    In any case, what I hope is that we will provide you with lots of information to support you in your real estate transaction.

    Article Synopsis

    Houston freestanding warehouses - Sale prices keep rising despite the tapering oil and gas industry.   As a veteran of the industrial real estate market, if you would have told me 24 months ago that sales prices for freestanding warehouses as user buildings would start exceeding $100 PSF, with regularity, I would have bet money against you.  Well, fast forward 2 years and not only have prices surpassed the $100 PSF mark, in some areas they are approaching $120 PSF!  Having just sold a 17,000 SF freestanding warehouse for $113 PSF near I-10 and Beltway 8 West and another 14,000 SF similar building under contract at $119 PSF, I can tell you it is a fact.  Although user warehouse development has slowed significantly, there are still a few parks under development or recently completed around town, primarily on the East side of Houston near the Port and refineries.

    Example Freestanding Warehouse 1So what is driving the high sales pricing on these user, freestanding warehouses?  Slowed construction of new product, scarcity of available land and a continued, but slower, expansion of the population and new businesses.   Additionally, interest rates are forecasted to increase within the next year.  Those business owners who have been patiently waiting in a lease on the sidelines for rates to bottom and real estate pricing to drop are now making a move.


    Example Freestanding Warehouse 2There are many developers searching for quality land sites at pricing which makes sense.  This demand is driving up land values and further thwarting new development.  Recently, it seemed that most investors could not pay more than about $3 PSF for industrial park speculation development of freestanding warehouses.  With the higher pricing, land prices in the $5 PSF range are manageable in some areas.  The future of Houston’s industrial market will be interesting.  We are hopeful that the city has managed to diversify enough to weather the energy sectors woes.

    Posted by Eric Hughes, on August 15, 2016 and Updated on August 17, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    3.48 acres of land for sale in Pearland, Texas is being offered by Centermark CRE.  The site is ideal for office, retail, daycare or medical development.  Also, as part of a master planned development, the site has full sanitary and water connections with detention provided via off-site detention.  Located one block east of Pearland Parkway, this 3.48 acre land tract is adjacent to new retail, banking, restaurants and Gehan homes subdivision (See link HERE).  While good for many uses, a mid to high end daycare facility would be an excellent fit for the site.  This is especially true given the demographics for the area.

    Moreover, this is the last commercial land tract in the vicinity.  HEB just opened a flagship store across Pearland Parkway with big box retail tenants now occupying adjacent space.

    Article Synopsis

    North Houston Office Warehouse for Lease

    Our property pick of the week in the “warehouse for lease” category is a property offered for lease by Jim Autenreith at Moody Rambin at 8039 FM 1960 Bypass Rd. W. Humble, TX  77338. Moody Rambin represents the property owner.  We came across the property when conducting a search for one of our clients who is actively in the market for functional, inexpensive dock high space.  Unfortunately, this location was a bit too far North for our client.  However, we feel it is worthy of the property pick of the week due to the large truck court, outside storage, fire sprinklers, 20’ clear height and below market rental rate of $.35 PSF NNN per month.

    Simple, functional, dock high space for lease at an affordable rate in Houston is becoming a scarcity.  If you have a broker, have them reach out to Jim.  If you do not, please give us a call so we can provide you with a detailed list of available property for lease which meets your specific criteria.

    Go to Article
    Posted by Eric Hughes, on August 12, 2016 and Updated on August 17, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    Centermark Commercial Real Estate (Centermark CRE) is looking to co-develop a distribution warehouse for lease property in near East Houston.  The property will have the following attributes:

    • Dock high 
    • Front load 
    • ESFR fire sprinklered 
    • Consist of two (2) dock high, tilt wall warehouse buildings 
    • 28’ clear heights 
    • Ample trailer parking/staging area 

    Map of Available Warehouse Development Sites - East Houston

    The 12.4 acre site is zoned Heavy Industrial in the city limits of Jacinto City and has frontage on both I-10 East and Market Street.  This location provides excellent access to I-10 East, Loop 610 East and Hwy 90 East.

    Located in the city of Jacinto City, tenants can avoid the occupancy restrictions which are often problematic in the city of Houston with distribution warehouse for lease.   Rental rates should be in the $.42 PSF/month NNN range with estimated operating expenses around $1.20 PSF/year.  While leasing is the primary goal of this project, a potential sale of one or both buildings is a possibility.  It is too early for exact pricing estimates, however a shell sale price of $90 PSF or so is not unreasonable.

    This near Eastside Houston location is in close proximity to the Port of Houston and its break bulk terminal located at the Clinton Gate.  The pending flow of port traffic from the Panana Canal widening should drive further warehouse leasing demand.  ESFR served warehousing added the ability to shrink tenant’s area requirements by stacking pallets higher.  Additionally, the ESFR amenity combined with Jacinto City’s lenient occupancy standards provide a business friendly environment for companies needing to warehouse, ship and manufacture flammable products.

    Just learned that new Federal limits on ozone, 70 ppb, will cost potential owners millions who propose developing new refineries, or expanding existing facilities.  This is sure to drive potential companies away from certain areas of Texas and to other, less ozone affected, counties.  Companies end up having to purchase ozone credits, which can run into 100’s of millions of dollars.

    Article Synopsis

    Now to the senate.  Hopefully, this repeal of the oil export ban will find its way through the Senate and somehow through the “anti-oil” clutches of the President.  We just provided Iran an undeniable boost towards increased oil production and an imminent gain in market share.  Why should we continue to bind the hands of the US oil producer in the same arena?  If we don’t sell to the rest of the world, someone will.

    It is not just the economy of the Midwest and Southern states (Houston, TX especially) who benefit from doing away with this prehistoric agreement.  There is value in retaining some leverage with OPEC and other producers which is likely to be parlayed into political bargaining power.

    Article Synopsis

    Houston’s shift in industrial warehouse demand from the West side of town to the East market is undeniable.  While historically light on fractional vacancy, East Houston and the inner Port of Houston market is now incredibly tight on available a space.  Even more concerning, this submarket has an even stronger outlook with increased break-bulk traffic foreseen for the port and continued rise in manufacturing and refining.  What is available now?  See a map below (from Costar.com) of available space for lease between 10,000 and 50,000 SF .  I culled the list a bit of functionally obsolescent buildings.  Quality space on the East side = almost Zero.

    As a tenant/buyer rep broker, I can tell you first hand that locating viable lease/purchase alternatives for clients, near the Port of Houston, has never been more challenging.

    $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.

    Go to Article
    Posted by Eric Hughes, on November 20, 2014 and Updated on August 16, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    Why is there little to no available manufacturing and/or storage warehousing available for purchase or lease near the Port of Houston?  Strong local economy?   Maybe.   Top Port in the Nation in many stats?   Partially.  Booming energy sector?  Possibly, but fading.

    The real reason the industrial lease and sale market is so tight in East Houston near the port of Houston is due to an almost complete lack of development over the past 30 years in the Loop 610 East/Hwy 225/I-10 East/Port of Houston corridor out to Beltway 8.  Yes there have been a few distribution projects which were developed on a speculative basis, however those have been full for some time.  As for freestanding crane served warehouses from Loop 610 out to Beltway 8…there are less than 4-5 properties available on any given day.  Is this a pure shortsightedness of developers?  Probably somewhat.  However, land is scarce and what is available is overpriced for industrial use.  The Panama Canal will be opening soon and with an expected 20% increase in traffic in the short term, where will this business go?  Probably to another port with adequate available storage and manufacturing warehousing.

    Article Synopsis

    Warehouse brokerage in Houston, Texas…wow, what a year.  2013 may end up being a record year for many Houston commercial brokers, given the tremendous influx of businesses relocating and/or expanding into the area.  However, the high demand results in “slim pickings” for business owners looking to acquire a warehouse for lease or sale.  With an approximate vacancy rate of around 4.9% in 2013, the industrial real estate sector has little inventory for potential owners and lessees.

    Moving into 2014, warehouse lease and purchase prospects will see continued rental and sales price increases on available warehouse space and premium rates and prices for the record number of freestanding warehouses under construction and proposed for the new year.  The new construction is also driving up land prices and reducing availability of land parcels which lend themselves to industrial development.

    As an Industrial real estate broker with 22 years in the Houston area, I am blessed to be doing business in Houston and really appreciate both the rewards and the challenges this market brings.

    Article Synopsis

    As a seasoned commercial real estate broker and developer at Centermark Commercial Real Estate, I have handled 100’s of commercial lease and sale transactions and then been involved in the buildout processes. Assuming all the sanitary sewer, water and electrical connections are reasonably located, plain office buildout runs about $38 to $45 PSF.  This is turn-key with standard private offices, RACO doors (9’) and 28 oz. carpet.  Medical finish with smaller rooms and multiple sinks runs about $65 PSF on the low end depending on finishes in the lobby/receptions areas (not including medical equipment).   These estimates include full HVAC and minimum millwork in the break areas and restrooms.  These estimates of cost PSF are more accurate on spaces over 3,000 SF.  Smaller spaces tend to be higher PSF as you have a smaller SF by which to divide the cost of the restrooms, electrical, etc.  If you need office space built out in a new building, are adding space to existing offices, or just want to upgrade your commercial property, contact our preferred contractor in Houston and does great work:

    Article Synopsis

    We get many calls from businesses looking for warehouse space in the size ranges where most brokers choose not to work the deal.  The fact is that small deals have small commissions and there is not a reliable inventory of available space available.  Owners of property with small spaces, under 5,000 SF, generally do not subscribe to the better listings internet websites and therefore do not report their availability.  In cities like Houston, which have no zoning, it can be particularly difficult to summarize those spaces on the market.

    A good commercial, industrial broker will know where these “pockets” of properties are located and therefore can be of assistance for those looking to lease warehouse space in the lower SF ranges.

    If you need help with any size warehouse to lease, please contact Eric Hughes, exclusive Houston Broker Affiliate at WarehouseFinder.NET.

    Posted by Eric Hughes, on May 22, 2012 and Updated on August 14, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    The overall tone in the Houston commercial real estate market is an optimistic one. Experts are speculating a continued turn-around for this year and beyond. One would assume this is good news for Houstonians - not necessarily.  It seems property owners are not the only ones paying attention to real estates “sunny forecast.”

    In a preemptive attempt to balance the market values with the appropriate taxes, the Appraisal Districts have begun to increase commercial real estate property taxes.  According to Harris County Chief Appraiser, Jim Robinson, “the values of commercial and industrial real properties and apartment properties are all beginning to show strong signs of economic recovery. These three categories of property are expected to increase between 6-11%.”

    Out of 600 commercial real estate properties included in a recent study, it was found there are significant appraisal value increase, across the board:

    • Retail - The average increase was 18.4%, with the highest increases in A&B-class properties. The largest increase found was as much as 84% year-over-year 
    • Multifamily -  Average increase - 17.8%. The hardest hit were the B & C-class properties, with as much as a 129% and 184% value increases over last year 
    • Office - office properties are experiencing increases of 23.5% on average, with highest value increases occurring in B-class properties and some reaching as much 85% and 98.9% higher than the 2011 tax value 

    In every realm, decision making without a thorough understanding of all factors is never a good thing.  Unfortunately for Houston property owners, that seems to be precisely what the Harris County Appraisal District is doing.

    So what can you do? Fight your taxes! A professional tax consultant can help you help the Appraisal District to see that through their efforts to “balance” the market, they are actually tipping the tax scale.

    Posted by Eric Hughes, on May 15, 2012 and Updated on August 14, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    There are fewer and fewer options for businesses needing warehouse space in Houston. Freestanding warehouses for lease or sale are becoming very difficult to locate. If you need a crane served warehouse, your only options are new construction and expensive. With rates averaging $.68 PSF NNN/month, many businesses can’t afford the cost. Will this push some companies to consider alternatives outside Houston? If the economy stays strong in the Houston area and the Panama Canal widening stays on schedule, the East Houston industrial market will be drastically underserved.

    There are only one or two second generation, crane ready or crane served warehouses for lease or sale East of Downtown Houston.  With little to no land available for development near the Port, the only choices will be out near Beltway 8 or further.

    If you need warehouse space for lease or purchase in the Greater Houston area, please contact Eric Hughes, our exclusive commercial broker affiliate for the Houston area.

    Call for Reduced Pricing Information 

    Centermark Commercial Real Estate has been retained to market the newly developed ATCO Business Park in Northwest Houston.  We have two buildings shell complete, 6,000 SF and 12,000 SF.

    The project will ultimately consist of fifteen (15) freestanding buildings for sale or lease in Northwest Houston.  While geared towards light industrial and service uses, the buildings can accommodate 100% office finishes as well.

    12,000 SF Warehouse, ATCO Business ParkATCO Business Park has been designed to offer a more contemporary feel and look to its product. These are not ordinary metal buildings. The developer’s goal was to provide attractive structures without compromising function. Each office/warehouse provides dedicated storage yard area, ample area for dock wells and 480 volt, 3 phase electrical service. These clear span buildings are fully insulated. Crane capable warehouses will also be offered over 10,000 SF.

    Located in Northwest Houston on FM 529 and outside the city limits, this industrial park is in the high demand NW quadrant.  Because we are outside the city, the tax rates are low at $2.34 per $100 of value.  ATCO BP is a great compliment to the nearby Northwoods Industrial Park which caters to larger crane served tenants. Quality freestanding buildings for sale or lease under 20,000 SF are rare in Houston and ATCO BP is eager to meet the demand.

    Article Synopsis

    Say what you want about the oil and gas industry…you can’t deny it has been very good to Houston, Texas.  The trickle down of this prosperity is a booming industrial market experiencing near record absorption and rate increases.  Bottom of the market distribution space which was renting for $.28 psf/gross/month a year ago is now going for $.35 PSF/gross/month.  The near east side of town near the Port of Houston had some empty dock high space for rent which had been on the market for months.  Now that space is all leased and requirements come across my email every day for distribution space.  In addition to small to medium sized dock space, similar sized manufacturing/crane served buildings are in high demand.  Most of this activity is related to the energy sector in some form or fashion.  The only area of industrial not faring so well is the big box distribution arena.  There are still options for spaces over 30,000 SF.

    Article Synopsis

    Commercial warehouse” as a label is broadly used to describe a number of types of commercial space typically offered for lease or rent.  For purposes of this article, we will use Five (5) main categories.

    General Office/Warehouse

    Typically grade level, this type of building is suited to businesses that provide a product and need to receive materials/items and ship out materials/items which may be at grade level or at dock high. The dock-high loading requirement with smaller freestanding buildings is usually facilitated thru use of in ground dock truck wells where the truck backs down a ramp to adjust for the height of the shipping container.

    Bulk Distribution

    Used for the distribution of palletized products in large volume, these buildings have true 4’ dock high loading with multiple doors, high clear height and fire protection systems.

    Heavy Manufacturing

    With grade level overhead doors and ample outside storage yard, these buildings often have large overhead cranes, heavy power and high clear heights.

    Flex office/warehouse (aka Service Center Space)

    Heavy office ratio and  air-conditioned and heated areas used for tech or assembly are common with Flex space.  High parking ratios and generally higher end business park settings are also popular with this type.

    Truck Terminal w/Cross Dock

    Used to transfer goods quickly from container to container, these buildings are usually very shallow and long to allow for a very high number of offloading spaces and overhead doors.  Additionally, an abundance of trailer storage area and staging yard is normally required.

    These are some of the main categories of buildings in Commercial Warehouses which are found for Lease.

    Article Synopsis
    The 4800 Fidelity re-development has leased more quickly than expected.  Out of 140,000 SF of existing buildings we leased 88,000 SF and are adding two more buildings for another 9,000 SF of office and warehouse leased.
     
    That leaves us with a single 54,000 SF freestanding warehouse building to lease.  This is a clear span building on approx. 2 acres or so with up to 6 additional acres available.  This building can accommodate up to 20 ton cranes and 30- hook heights. 

    Also, we can construct to suit crane served warehouses up to 100,000 SF on the excess land at this site.  Call Eric Hughes at Centermark Commercial Real Estate for more info on the Fidelity property or for a proposal to construct a new warehouse facility.

    Posted by Eric Hughes, on December 27, 2011 and Updated on August 12, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    The Port of Houston is the leading US port for volume in total tonnage, according to the American Association of Port Authorities 2010 report.  With the widening of the Panama Canal coming soon, the anticipated need for crane served manufacturing and material handling space in Houston is anticipated to skyrocket.  At the time of this post, there is already a definite shortage of quality industrial property for lease which can accommodate overhead crane service.  Fewer than 8 or 10 buildings exist East of Houston’s CBD which have existing crane(s) and very few have much storage yard and/or adequate hook height. 

    While there are a few smaller projects in the works from local developers, the future need is likely to force product to other ports which have the existing facilities in place to handle the business.  Some local heavy freight logistic companies estimate the shortage for such properties to be in excess of 1,000,000 SF  by January of 2014.

    McCorvey Real Estate Holdings has two projects in the works in near East Houston with buildings of 20,000 SF up to 100,000 SF with crane spans of up to 70’, hooks up to 35’ and tonnage to 35 tons.

    Go to Article
    Posted by Eric Hughes, on December 13, 2011 and Updated on August 18, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    So we need to lease a warehouse - how much free rent can you get us?”  That is a common question I get from my clients.  It generally does not matter if they are local or global, $100k/year or $100mm/year, everyone wants to feel they got the upper-hand or a good “deal.”  But what does “free rent” really mean?

    Free rent is, in most circumstances, a period of time where the tenant pays no rent or partial rent during the lease.  This period is usually front loaded on the lease term.  This is a great marketing ploy for landlords and is generally a win for the tenant too.  It is pushed as a savings in rent to offset move-in and set-up costs incurred by the tenant.  Free rent is also called “Rental Abatement” - which is, as a description, generally more palatable to Landlords.  Owners hate to give away money.  At the end of the day, owners want to lease their properties up and if they can lease it now, give a few months of free rent and eliminate the risk of additional months of vacancy, then it ends up being a wash for the owner. 


    Let me explain the tricks around Free Rent.  Typically,  free rent is never free.  Rental abatement is recouped later in the lease.  While time value of money may be gained, the Landlord will generally pad his proposal to account for any opportunity costs.   As an example, if you as the tenant want to rent 10,000 SF for 60 months and the Landlord gives you 3 months free rent, he will typically add the months to the term of the lease - so 63 months.  Now the Landlord will want rental increases in later years and will start those “bumps” in month 13 of the lease.  Now the added three months will be at the highest rate in the term, thereby increasing the average rate over the lease. 

    Free rent up front is a plus for the tenant, provided the tenant does not have to pay more in rate over the term in order to get the free rent.

    Probably one of the best deals on the East side of Houston is actually a selection of spaces bordering both market Street and I10-East.  Two different owners with multi tenant distribution type facilities have spaces for lease from 8,000 SF to 40,000 SF and rates range between $.32 PSF and $.35 PSF/month gross.  These are tiltwall warehouses with 24’+ clear and they are fire sprinklered.  They even have ample truck courts.  While there are a few similar options on Wallisville Road and at Turning Basin, we feel these spaces have better access.  A few even have rail access!

    Article Synopsis

    What is commercial warehouse  for lease?  What is commercial warehouse for rent?  They are the same and they are different.  “Commercial” is just a description of the property to indicate an exclusion of residential uses.  “For rent” and “for lease” while basically synonymous, “lease” actually refers to a contractual agreement between a tenant and landlord.  “Warehouse” has many meanings in the sense that a “warehouse” can be used for many purposes and in many manners.  Here are few examples of Commercial Warehouse for Lease:

    • Distribution WarehouseTypically dock high warehouse with fire protection sprinkler systems and warehouse clear heights over 24’.  The high clear is to accommodate pallet racking.  Users of distribution space normally require minimal office finish.
    • Flex WarehouseWith a higher percentage of office finish, Flex Space is combination of warehouse and office finish, sometimes 50% of each.   Warehouse Renters of this space can be high tech, assembly and light manufacturers.
    • Manufacturing Industrial Warehouse: For me, the word industrial conveys images of heavy cranes and steel being moved, modified and shipped.  Manufacturing Warehouses often are crane served with overhead bridge cranes or jib-cranes.  The buildings are chiefly made of metal and require heavy power.

    These are just a few examples.

    Article Synopsis

    Build, build, build.  Consume, consume, consume.  Not anymore.  Welcome to the new norm of commercial real estate.  Over the last two decades, before the oil crash, banks were lending money on a signature and good will.  As a result developers, eager to make a fee, put up millions of square feet of bulk distribution space around the country.  Now that market is subject to downsizing, reducing, consolidating and liquidating.  In many healthy markets like Houston, Dallas and Atlanta there is still a glut of distribution space for lease, despite the relative thriving commercial market.  In other large cities, a tenant can almost name its price on bulk space for lease.

    Our current slow to very slow trot to recovery is not enough to push lenders off their pedestals.  Hopefully when things do begin to pick up pace, the shortage of new product as a result of stringent lending practices will force rental rates to new highs.

    Article Synopsis

    When looking at buildings for sale, it is important that the business owner understand the types of commercial property for sale in the market. 

    Warehouse or Industrial:  These are typically for distribution or manufacturing and can be constructed of metal or masonry materials.  Crane served manufacturing warehouses are typically metal buildings.  Warehouse can be grade level, semi-dock (2’ high) or dock level (4’ high).

    Flex Buildings:  Flex space is a hybrid of office and light industrial warehouse/tech space.  This property type caters to laboratories, computer and technical companies and instrument or data-logging industries. 

    Office Property:  Self explanatory except that single story business parks often provide very nice office space for less rent than the typical multi-story office building.

    Retail:  Again, self explanatory.  Retail options come in many shapes and sizes.  The latest trend is lifestyle center with outdoor walkways and park settings versus the old Mall style projects.

    These are a few very basic types of property to consider when looking at buildings for sale.

  • library_books Commercial Buildings for sale - A shrinking market? How is that?
    Go to Article
    Posted by Eric Hughes, on May 13, 2011 and Updated on August 11, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    Construction of commercial buildings has decreased approximately 28% across the board for industrial, retail and office properties (as reported by Costar,Inc.).  This is especially true for speculative warehouse and office buildings for sale by a developer.  For the business owner looking to buy a warehouse building or office for his/her operations, this decrease may drive up pricing on existing buildings and reduce availability.  I have clients tell me quite often that in this economy there must be a glut of buildings for sale.  While that may be accurate in areas of the country with higher than average unemployment and/or a shrinking population, it is quite the opposite in booming cities like Houston, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta, Provo and Phoenix.

    While a shortage of funds from lenders for speculative development is a nationwide issue, availability of buildings for sale fluctuates dramatically from city to city.   Lender rules for loan approval do not take into account the feasibility of project based on an individual city’s needs and inventory.  A bad economy by default forces a migration of people to other, more prosperous areas of the country looking for jobs.  This drives up demand in those areas and changes the commercial real estate picture.  Tie this surge in demand to a national policy of restrictive lending and you have a shortage of quality buildings for sale.

    So, the volume of buildings for sale becomes a relative term and may not correspond to the nationwide economy, especially in a city like Houston, Texas.

    Article Synopsis

    Houston is seeing a surge in leasing and sales of quality industrial freestanding properties with excess yard or land.   We have seen an increased demand for buildings with fenced and surfaced yard area to facilitate heavy equipment and tractor trailer storage.  Slowly those warehouse properties have been leased or sold and most of the existing product is burdened with some incurable physical obsolescence (i.e. low ceilings in the warehouse, limited yard area and/or truck courts).

    Also, numerous requirements for 28’ + clear warehouses have been floating around with no existing buildings around to fill the need.  If you require a freestanding building with extra land AND high clear heights…Good luck, get ready to build new.

    Rate Outlook for Small Business loans to purchase facilities

    The current rates for small business have been holding steady over the last several weeks.  Noting the pressures facing our global and national economies will put a bit more pressure on the upside in the near term.   Banks remain cautiously optimistic toward lending practices with a heavy appetite for A credits and continued reduced demand for weaker credits.  Borrowers can typically fix their interest for 5 years without having to pay a huge premium due to the interest uncertainty over the long haul.    In summary, the current rate environment remains positive for small business loans to purchasing facilities.     By Mike Allen - Allen Capital Funding 832.661.6453

    Not just in Houston either.  Since Warehousefinder.net is a national search service, we receive calls and emails from all over the US and overseas.  The new year has brought a new found vigor in inquiries from decision makers looking to move, expand and/or relocate their warehouse, manufacturing or distribution operations.  Make no mistake, this is not the same market as 2005/6…however after the last 24 months, any sign of improvement is encouraging.  The trend for the last three weeks continues to scale upwards, albeit at a slow rate.  Our guess is that the extension of federal tax incentives pushed many companies over the fence on facility planning decisions.  Look for our report soon on which parts of the U.S. have the most industrial leasing activity.

    Article Synopsis

    Warehousefinder.NET (WF), a global commercial real estate website, is designating affiliate brokers in most cities.  While some major cities/areas are already taken, there are many cities/areas without confirmed, qualified commercial brokers.

    For over two years, WF has referred out qualified leads for both industrial and office leases, sales and development and is expanding this function substantially.  In an effort to formalize its referral process and better serve its clients, WF is identifying qualified commercial brokers in most cities to be exclusive affiliate brokers.  This means that every lead which WF recieves for any given area will be referred only to the corresponding affiliate broker. 

    Our process is simple.  We send the lead, deal gets done, broker pays WF a 20% referral fee on received commissions.  Also, we encourage our brokers to refer deals among fellow affiliates in our directory.  Our brokers include SIOR, CCIM, and other recognized designees, all with a minimum of 10 years experience and strong production histories.  Every affiliate broker is held accountable.

    To find out if your city is available or to send your company information, please email info@warehousefinder.net.

    Our goal is to connect business owners with quailified and honest brokers who actually return their calls and service their client.

    Welcome to our new version of the WarehouseFinder website.  Created in 2008 by a seasoned Commercial Real Estate broker, WarehouseFinder.NET aims to streamline your search for industrial and/or office space and eliminate time spent with inexperienced agents…or worse, an unlicensed phone operator/assistant.

    When looking for warehouse space for rent, lease or for purchase, sifting through all the websites and talking to numerous brokers is extremely time consuming and ineffective.  Use us instead.  Why?…

    Our service is free - commissions are paid by the property owner, not you.

    Your time is valuable - let us search, sift, organize and prepare results while you run your business.

    One broker representing your interests is best - Calling multiple brokers and having them all look will lessen their dedication to you.  Why would they work hard for you if another broker is doing the same work?

    Again welcome to our new, redesigned site and we look forward to helping you in your search for warehouse, office or industrial property.

    WarehouseFinder.NET provides tailored RESULTS to its clients through affiliate brokers in cities across the U.S. The ultimate fine-tuned list of available warehouse or office property is derived from (4) four primary sources.

    1. Our licensed broker/agent affiliate sends a broker email to all the commercial brokers/agents in your city with your specific office/warehouse requirements. This is crucial in catching properties which may be “flying under the radar” and not listed online or in the primary databases.

    2. Searches of proprietary broker databases which are developed over time with each individual broker in your city.

    3. Searches of Costar, LoopNet and many other city specific sites of which our affiliates are premium members. (These monthly fees are substantial and you get the benefit for FREE!)

    4. Broker’s personal knowledge of his or her market. Years of “beating the streets” brings invaluable experience and understanding of a city’s industrial warehouse and/or office market.  This is probably the most important piece of our research.

    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

    The following are a few of about 40 checklist items we typically cover in our due diligence when assisting clients:

    • Zoning/deed restrictions - Be sure any applicable zoning or restrictions allow for your business use 
    • Access - The property needs to be easily accessed from major thoroughfares and delivery trucks should be able to navigate the roadways to your warehouse 
    • Taxes and POA’s - Compare property tax rates as MUD’s and other U.D.’s can increase the tax rate significantly. Also Property Owner Associations may assess annual fees to keep the property mowed and cover some common electric 
    • Elevation - While many properties lie outside 500 and 100 year flood zones, they still may hold water after heavy rains or get run off from adjacent property. Do your homework, interview adjacent property owners and get a good topographic survey 
    • Detention - In many counties, the Flood Management District will require a developer install storm water detention onsite to control water runoff. This can eat up 15% or more of your useable area. Some master planned business parks have the detention in place for the entire development and your land could be used entirely for your improvements with no detention required 
    • Utilities - A buyer needs to confirm that his prospective site has access to sanitary sewer, water and storm water outfall. If a water well and/or septic system are to be used, be sure all required installation distances, spray field, and local government requirements can be met

    Posted by Eric Hughes, on September 23, 2010 and Updated on August 18, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    Distribution, manufacturing, service, fabrication, storage and many other uses occupy millions of warehouses around the world. Goods go in, goods go out, machinery goes in, machinery goes out - and on and on.

    Understanding the types of access to these warehouses is imperative when evaluating business needs and alternative facilities available. In this article we will explore several widely used loading types.

    Dock High 

    Dock high loading is synonymous with distribution and storage. Whether uses in distribution centers or port handling facilities, dock loading facilities are a necessity when unloading and loading contents from and to over the road containers. True dock loading and the most preferred is accomplished when the truck court is at natural ground level and the warehouse floor is at or near 48” in height.

    Semi-Dock or 1/2 Dock 

    Semi-Dock is almost always at 24” in height, hence the name 1/2 dock. or half dock. This type of loading is mainly used to transfer product between the warehouse and standard short box trucks (UPS type) and/or standard pickups/delivery trucks.

    Grade Level 

    Grade level loading is when the overhead door entry is at or very near the level of the natural grade level of the truck court. Grade level loading is necessary for fork lift access to the truck court or yard to access trailers and transfer product. Grade level loading is also required for facilities which have mandatory truck/trailer access to the interior of the building. Quasi grade level loading can be accomplished with a dock high slab by adding a ramp down to grade/natural ground level.

    Exterior Docks 

    If adequate yard area exists, a grade level building can incorporate dock access by adding an exterior built up dock, at 24” or 48”, with a ramp down either in the yard or into the warehouse.

    Dock Well 

    Also in a grade level building, dock access can be achieved by installing a dock well, to 24” or 48” or both. The dock well is a ramp down into the ground usually meeting the slab of the building. This loading type enables the building to utilize its natural grade level attributes while incorporating true dock level transfer with a tractor trailer.

    Article Synopsis

    So you found your perfect office and/or warehouse. It is the right square footage, has adequate ceiling heights and yard area and is in a good location. You just went under contract at the Title Company. Now what?

    Now the real important work begins. There will almost always be several buildings that fit your requirement, however finding the one with few to no issues is a different story. Many brokers feel their work is done once the property is under contract. This is far from the truth. A good commercial broker shines once the contract clock starts ticking.

    Free items first 

    While there are numerous due diligence items which have to be handled, I always put the questions on the top of the checklist which won’t cost my client anything to get answered. That way if my Buyer can’t live with these he won’t waste money on phase one environmental studies, appraisals and further attorney fees.

    Physical inspection of the property is more than just looking at the obvious components of the warehouse and or office as the roof, structure, paving, electrical and mechanical systems. The ones that can be missed are indications of standing water near the building which may be caused from poor drainage. Does the roof drain to one side or does it collect in the middle of the building in a gutter, which may be problematic. If you have an office building, do you have enough parking, adequate and efficient HVAC? Does the building meet ADA codes? If an office warehouse, is the truck court adequate, is there enough power, is the rail siding up to the rail provider’s specs? The structural, MEP and environmental studies should be handled by licensed professionals…however they often miss issues. A second set of eyes is important.

    Documents contained in the Seller deliveries and the title commitment are the first to get tackled. While attorney consultation is a must with contract and commitment review, a quality broker can make valuable suggestions that an attorney may miss and then can evaluate. The title commitment should provide copies of any recorded deed restrictions on the property which may be problematic. At this stage local zoning should also be confirmed for the same reason. Encumbrances evidenced in the commitment may also be revealed such as an easement which may prohibit the Buyers intended use. Again a good real estate attorney is important at this point.
