Green Solar Technologies posts growth of 250 percent

There aren’t many businesses that claim growth of 250 percent in two years, but Green Solar Technologies can. The North Hollywood company accomplished it largely by going where other solar companies have failed to tread — or have treaded lightly. Edward Harner, Green Solar’s chief operating officer, explains it this way: Where opportunity exists “Our growth has been fueled heavily by an expansion into the Midwest and into areas with smaller populations,” he said. “Places like Montana and Wyomi...

Commercial real estate: Is price important? 5 (surprising) reasons why it’s not

This could be the shortest column EVER! Of course, price is important. End of story. But, because I have a bit more space, allow me to offer some arguments as to why price is not important. As we’ve discussed, buyers of commercial real estate either buy to occupy (owner-occupant) or buy to collect the rents as income (investor). In the latter case, no relationship exists between the owner and the occupant — it’s strictly arm’s length. Counter with the former as an owner-operated business will so...

Did you know Roger Staubach is largely responsible for ‘tenant rep’ role? Here’s how it works

A commercial real estate professional’s work is generally divided between listings in two ways: representing an owner or helping find a building for tenant or buyer. Today, I delve into the world of buyer and tenant representation, also know as “tenant rep.” By the way, this genre of commercial real estate practice evolved in the mid-80s and was created in large part by Roger Staubach, who went from legendary Dallas Cowboy quarterback to real estate mogul. When do you need a tenant rep broker? T...

Allen Buchanan: A week in the life of a commercial broker

As commercial real estate professionals, we have two commodities – our time and our information – aka our market knowledge. Therefore – we must spend our time wisely – on profitable activities and share our knowledge with those who need our services. My philosophy is to be stingy with my time and generous with my knowledge. So, just how do I spend my week to monetize activity and gain market knowledge? Today I’ll share with you a formula that has served me well. The percentage of time spent on e...

Allen Buchanan: Is your building ownership a mirror image?

Commercial real estate ownership is a beautiful thing for many owners. What other investment can you own and experience the tax advantages of depreciation, passive income treatment, and capital gains all while the asset is appreciating? If you own a business that occupies your commercial real estate — even better! Now, you have the occupant (tenant) paying you (landlord) rent. I’ve witnessed this structure numerous times over the years and it works the majority of the time. Today’s column is cen...

Business briefly: US stocks give up an early rally; JLL buys HFF in Texas

U.S. stock indexes closed mostly lower Tuesday after a late-afternoon splash of selling erased early gains, ending a weeklong rally. Banks accounted for much of the decline, along with utilities and industrial companies. Those losses offset gains in health care, technology and consumer products stocks. The S&P 500 index slipped 0.37 points, or 0.01 percent, to 2,832.57. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 26.72 points, or 0.1 percent, to 25,887.38. The Nasdaq composite gained 9.47 points, o...

Who best represents your interests in a commercial lease?

I recently received a call from one of our readers concerning a lease they were considering signing and had some questions they wanted me to answer. After speaking with them, I realized that they didn’t know who was representing them, i.e., acting as their broker. So, I asked the prospective tenant if a final letter of intent (LOI) was drafted, depicting the basic terms of the lease. The LOI typically states all the material items that are to be incorporated into the lease such as rent, increase...

Allen Buchanan: 5 situations that can make a sublease unmarketable

I recently wrote about the Yin and Yang of subleases wherein I discussed the elements that make a sublease risky and non-beneficial to the owner and occupant of a building – “because subleases are generally unfavorable to the original occupant (sub-landlord) and owner (master landlord), risky, and complicated.” Also discussed was a definition of a sublease: What is a sublease? When a tenant must relieve himself of a lease obligation prior to the expiration of the lease, the need to sublease occu...

NYC’s Chrysler Building, offered at $800 million, gets lowball offer

Real estate investor Aby Rosen’s RFR Holding is in serious talks to buy Manhattan’s landmark Chrysler Building, according to people familiar with the matter. A deal hasn’t yet been signed, said the people, who weren’t authorized to speak because the matter is private. The bidding process is ongoing and RFR isn’t the only serious bidder, one of the people said. RFR’s offer for the art deco tower, near Grand Central Terminal, is between $100 million and $200 million — far below the $800 million th...

Top 10 tech, apps this commercial broker uses every day

Often, I have opined how our residential counterparts have the edge on commercial real estate professionals when it comes to our use of technology. Simply, it revolves around three reasons: the demographics of our industry, techno providers selling individual vs. enterprise solutions, and the biggie — our available inventory is not shared with a Realty board, which means the consumer cannot widely view what’s for sale online. Some of us, however, have seen the light and adopted technology to ben...

6 tough commercial real estate conversations (psst, cooperation can help!)

Cooperation is a reality in commercial real estate deals. Meaning, a buyer and seller or landlord and tenant must reach an agreement. Simple. But there are other layers of cooperation to factor in, including the professionals who represent each side such as brokers, lawyers, lenders, CPAs and the like. All must genuflect at the altar of the deal in order for it to close. Generally, the level of cooperation is enhanced when the advisers do their jobs. That is, conduct the tough conversations that...

Hey, retail tenant: Here’s why your rent is going up again (and what you can do about it)

As we head into the new year, nearly all commercial tenants will be experiencing an increase in their monthly rent. Why? It’s that time of year when commercial landlords issue new rent statements to their tenants. And tenants can expect their base minimum rent to increase by whatever annual percentage amount they negotiated with their landlord. Typically, this amount is 3 percent, but there are instances when a lesser amount could have been negotiated. Be sure to verify the billing statement wit...

Another Ross Dress for Less is planned for Ventura Boulevard in Encino

Ross Dress for Less may lack the sheen and shine of other large-scale retail stores like Nordstrom, Macy’s or Sears, but shoppers at the off-price discount emporium can find the same name brands for up to 70 percent lower prices. So is it any surprise that another store is slated for development on Ventura Boulevard in Encino, making it the tenth Ross in the San Fernando Valley area within two miles up the road from a store in Tarzana?

Market slowdown: 4 ways commercial occupants should change their thinking

I read with great interest this week a column by Jeff Collins, “Home seller’s market cooling,” in which he reports the year-over-year home sales in December of 2018 declined 20.3%! This is a staggering figure and confirms “the bloom is off the rose” officially in the housing market. Economic uncertainty, a spike in interest rates, and a glut of homes for sale are the culprits. Will a decline in the median home price in SoCal be the hangover that follows? Will the carnage be similar to 2008-2009?...

Allen Buchanan: A primer on operating expenses in commercial real estate

Generally, January is the time of year when your landlord will present you with an invoice for expenses – in addition to your base rent. This assumes, of course, that you lease your business’ home. However, if you own your business home, take heed, as you may be able to take a few more dollars from your left pocket and move them into your right pocket by asking your occupant to pay for some stuff. This column is designed as a primer for these expenses. Let’s define a couple of key terms – shall ...

How to fill a commercial real estate vacancy — QUICKLY!
