As a provider of “First Look” and “Conceptual Development Studies” in Commercial & Residential Real Estate, “BD” offers an inexpensive method to testing an acquisition target whether it’s an empty lot or an existing building with the option to expand. The First Look principal allows an efficient low cost tool to position “A Go or No Go”. Buying or selling property has several levels of due diligence that each side has to consider.

The team has prepared plans for site selection, office space and value proposition in several formats including CAD software. We have served our clients by looking at as many reasonably possible, benefits and obstacles that fit the assignment. Our clients have sent us the information about sites in various states across the United States, we have been able to develop concepts or show why we thought the site would not work for the intended use. When a site is not adequate based on the information we have available this preliminary study can prevent the loss of time and money.

Investment Cash-flow In and Out

Commercial RE Facts on Income Producing

The basic elements of an investment are cash inflows, outflows, timing of cash flows, and risk. The ability to analyze these elements is key in providing services to investors in commercial real estate.

Cash inflows and outflows are the money that is put into, or received from, the property including the original purchase cost and sale revenue over the entire life of the investment. An example of this sort of investment is a real estate fund.

Cash inflows include the following:

  • Rent
  • Operating expense recoveries
  • Fees: Parking, vending, services, etc.
  • Proceeds from sale
  • Tax Benefits
  • Depreciation
  • Tax credits (e.g., historical)

Cash outflows include:

  • Initial investment (down payment)
  • All operating expenses and taxes
  • Debt service (mortgage payment)
  • Capital expenses and tenant leasing costs
  • Costs upon Sale

The timing of cash inflows and outflows is important to know in order to project periods of positive and negative cash flows. Risk is dependent on market conditions, current tenants, and the likelihood that they will renew their leases year‐over‐year. It is important to be able to predict the probability that the cash inflows and outflows will be in the amounts predicted, what is the probability that the timing of them will be as predicted, and what the probability is that there may be unexpected cash flows, and in what amounts they might occur.

 

Commercial Real Estate 101

Types of CRE Properties (Listed below)

Office Buildings – This category includes single‐tenant properties, small professional office buildings, downtown skyscrapers, and everything in between.

Industrial – This category ranges from smaller properties, often called “Flex” or “R&D” properties, to larger office service or office warehouse properties to the very large “big box” industrial properties. An important, defining characteristic of industrial space is Clear Height. Clear height is the actual height, to the bottom of the steel girders in the interior of the building. This might be 14‐16 feet for smaller properties, and 40+ feet for larger properties. We also consider the type and number of docks that the property has. These can be Grade Level, where the parking lot and the warehouse floor are on the same level, to semi‐dock height at 24 inches, which is the height of a pickup truck or delivery truck, or a full‐dock at 48 inches which is semi‐truck height. Some buildings may even have a Rail Spur for train cars to load and unload.

Retail/Restaurant – This category includes pad sites on highway frontages, single tenant retail buildings, small neighborhood shopping centers, larger centers with grocery store anchor tenants, “power centers” with large anchor stores such as Best Buy, PetSmart, OfficeMax, and so on even regional and outlet malls.

Multifamily – This category includes apartment complexes or high‐rise apartment buildings. Generally, anything larger than a fourplex is considered commercial real estate.

Land – This category includes investment properties on undeveloped, raw, rural land in the path of future development. Or, infill land with an urban area, pad sites, and more.

Miscellaneous – This catch all category would include any other nonresidential properties such as hotel, hospitality, medical, and self‐storage developments, as well as many more.
