Patience is a virtue for multi-tenant investment sales final adjustments
All parties to a sale (brokers, property managers, buyers, sellers, and lawyers) must be prepared for the process necessary to calculate occupancy cost adjustments at sale closing.
If you’re selling multi-tenant commercial real estate, the final statement of adjustments that your lawyer provides could take a couple of months to complete.
Lease expiries creep up much faster than most tenants expect.
Committing to a five-year term can seem like a lifetime for a business, but that deadline moves up in the blink of an eye
I’ve had two requests this month to enter a discussion around the price and terms of a transaction.
I declined both requests. Let me explain why.
As brokers, landowners engage us to provide an opinion of value on development land.
At the same time, those landowners often offer, what is believed to be, comparable land sales within close proximity to the subject property.
What they may not realize is that there could be a whole back story to that supposed comparable land sale that render it incompatible as a sale comp.

What happens if I just don’t have any?
Commercial real estate landlords, regardless of their vacancy, don’t have to be excited to rent to just anybody.
Sophisticated landlords can get downright picky.
This isn’t necessarily a reflection of discrimination towards any type of tenant, however.
Some Landlords believe they can renew their Tenants at the same rental rate that a Broker is able to negotiate.
Alternatively, Tenants often believe they can do a good job representing themselves in their renewal.
Whether a Landlord or a Tenant, your commercial real estate representative can make a solid case why you should contract an experienced broker to represent you.
I am not referring to dual agency but rather single agency where a Broker would represent either a Tenant or a Landlord.
