    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.

    Go to Article
    Posted by Eric Hughes, on January 17, 2011 and Updated on August 11, 2019
    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.

    Market Knowledge 

    As seasoned commercial real estate brokers, we have a firm grasp on our market. We know which buildings are available, understand restrictions, zoning, are aware of proposed developments and are up to date on comparable sales or rents.

    Experienced Negotiators 


    With 100’s of transactions negotiated, we are experts at closing a deal. Our specialty is “thinking outside the box” to get deals done that may be difficult.

    Contracts/Document Understanding 


    Having vast experience with commercial earnest money and lease contracts helps prevent many legal hurdles that arise when the client’s attorney gets the documentation. Also, we make suggestions and point out red flags to legal counsel to avoid problems for our clients.

    Financing 

    Seller notes, bridge loans, mezz loans, conventional, SBA, Seller seconds…we have seen it all and have relationships with lenders which have money to lend at competitive rates. Most of all they are familiar with the Houston Market.

    Understanding Construction 

    Not all commercial real estate brokers understand different types of commercial construction and the advantages/disadvantages of each as well as related reproduction costs. Since we also do development, we have seen what goes into a new building.

    Loyalty 

    Above all, we are here to look out for your interests. As many of our clients will attest, if we feel the deal is not right for you, we will tell you. Our success comes from repeat business and referrals. Unhappy clients do not make for long term success.

    Let our experience, knowledge and loyalty work for you.

    Article Synopsis

    Houston, Texas (Marketwire) - November 29, 2010 - Real estate transactions are never simple, but WarehouseFinder.Net takes the headache out of finding the right warehouse space by connecting you with qualified commercial industrial brokers in your city.  The search begins by logging onto www.warehousefinder.net. Enter company requirements, including square footage, location and price.  The Warehousefinder.NET experts do the rest.

    The team of experienced commercial real estate brokers have extensive local experience to quickly identify the best resources throughout the United States. The process includes analyzing square footage and facility requirements including warehouse ceiling heights, fire suppression, electrical power, loading, yard storage, port and rail access. Once the best warehouse space has been located, WarehouseFinder.Net will help each client wade through the technicalities of warehouse leasing or purchasing including negotiating contract terms, assisting with due diligence items including evaluating financing options and the coordination of inspection, survey, appraisal and other applicable studies.

    WarehouseFinder.Net was founded by Eric Hughes, commercial real estate broker with over 19 years in the industrial and office brokerage industry. Eric’s extensive experience includes negotiating warehouse lease and purchase contracts. He has assisted the full range of companies in finding warehouse space.

    WarehouseFinder.NET’s commission is paid by the property owner. Our service is FREE to our clients.

    Our goal at Warehousefinder.net is to understand the operations of our clients so we can better identify the needs of each business. We then negotiate the best price possible for their specific warehouse space requirements,” said Hughes. “Our team has substantial “on the ground” experience with the industrial and office market. We have the experience to manage the details of determining client needs, locating viable alternatives, negotiating leases/purchase contracts and seeing the transaction through to closing.  We utilize Costar, Loopnet and other professional fee-based web databases; however without years of personal experience in a market, this information would be useless.”

    WarehouseFinder.Net works with company owners and facility managers in securing local and regional warehouse properties both in lease and purchase scenarios, handling all forms of industrial properties including heavy crane served manufacturing facilities, dock high distribution buildings, rail served and light manufacturing/service type warehouses.

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

    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.
