The basics of commercial property valuation

Commercial property can be appealing to anyone in California looking to either find the perfect spot for a business or make a profit renting out a desirable space. One of the most important pieces of information that perspective buyers want to know before investing in a commercial property is how much it's worth. There are several ways to accomplish this goal.

Climate change and property investment

California real estate investors know the importance of doing due diligence before purchasing a property. One issue that may have a significant impact on the long-term value of a property is climate change. Climate and weather issues can trigger incidents that damage property and communities.

Reasons to invest in Southern California commercial real estate

Prices, competition, barriers to entry and a poor infrastructure for transportation are among the elements that may discourage some commercial investors in California. There is also growing concern over availability of water; although, technologies are being developed to help deal with this. Despite these challenges, Southern California remains an attractive commercial real estate market.

Changing CRE investment strategies for 2019

California commercial real estate investors may want to consider modifying their strategies for staying on top of the market in 2019. While many investors may opt to continue to use what has worked for them in the past, others may have to use new methods to set up capital in order to address a volatile equity market, slow growth in the industry and trade disputes.

Commercial real estate and blockchain technology

Making the decision to invest in commercial real estate in California or any other state can result in profits if wise investment decisions are made. However, it is important that investors recognize how the commercial real estate industry is changing. One significant change is the integration of blockchain technology.

Preparing for commercial real estate premises liability

When someone gets injured on a property, the owner of that piece of real estate is generally considered liable. Thousands of such premises liability cases are filed in court every year in California and throughout the rest of the country. In order for property owners to protect themselves, it's important that they prepare for as many potential liabilities as possible. While records show that personal injury cases on commercial properties have started to go down, they still cost owners a lot of money every year.

Understanding the commercial real estate market

California investors may be curious about the potential of entering the commercial real estate market, especially if they've already been active in residential properties. There are a number of unique characteristics that can make the commercial property market particularly appealing to investors. Commercial leases are often long-term, reducing the level of effort needed to keep or find new tenants on a regular basis, even though the negotiation of any particular contract may require additional work. In addition, as commercial properties are often multi-unit, investors can receive several revenue streams from one property.

The rise of proptech

Investors or business owners who are looking for commercial real estate should be aware that the CRE industry is poised to undergo a transformation due to proptech. In 2017, $12.6 billion worth of venture capital investments were made in proptech, which is real estate technology. That amount was three times what was invested in 2015. There are several proptech companies that are highly funded and developing applications that could change building management and occupancy experiences.

Commercial prices likely to remain flat

According to Green Street Advisors, commercial property prices are likely to remain stable for the next several months. Furthermore, as the Federal Reserve raises interest rates, there could be a flip in the yield curve, which may signal weaker economic conditions ahead. Data from Real Capital Analytics (RCA) found that year-over-year price growth as of July 2018 was half of what it was in the early part of 2015.

How blockchain could disrupt commercial real estate

The use of blockchain could simplify commercial real estate transactions as they would be conducted without the need for a third party. This means that someone in California could agree to buy a property or provide financing for a project by delivering the money directly to the buyer or borrower. The ledger that the information is stored on is digital and encrypted to make such transactions safer for all parties involved.
