Investing in Commercial Real Estate

When most people think of real estate investment, they think of rental homes and apartments. However, current economic conditions make rental real estate riskier than ever. Even good honest tenants are subject to losing their jobs and being unable to pay rent. Furthermore, declining property values and rising taxes and insurance negatively impact profit potential.


Commercial real estate investment offers an attractive alternative to residential real estate. Leases are long-term and the checks are less likely to bounce. There are two basic types of commercial real estate investments: direct and indirect.


In direct commercial real estate investment, you purchase one or more business buildings. This option requires a large amount of capital and offers little liquidity. As the owner, you will be responsible for management and maintenance issues.

Office buildings and manufacturing facilities usually provide long-term tenants and greater stability than retail establishments. But if you need your money, you have to find a buyer for the building. And again, you will have tax and insurance issues.

Novice investors have been burned by hidden environmental problems or zoning issues, so make sure to seek the advice of an attorney knowledgeable in commercial real estate issues.


Indirect real estate investments allow the smaller investor to enjoy the benefits of commercial real estate with fewer disadvantages. Funds from many investors are pooled and used for commercial investments. The fund's directors hire managers and address maintenance issues. Furthermore, shares in the fund can be sold at will, improving investors' liquidity.


There are many options in indirect real estate investments.

You can consider the pros and cons of various investment types. For example, you may decide that America's aging population makes medical building investments a "sure thing". On the other hand, concerns about national health insurance issues leading to restrictive regulations in the medical industry may lead you to look elsewhere for investment opportunities.

The global marketplace makes it possible to invest in real estate anywhere in the world. However, differing regulations and politics may increase risk. On the other hand, rapid growth and profit potential may make the risks worth taking.


Like most investments, the costs of real estate investment shares have dropped considerably. However, the returns are still excellent compared to other investments. 
And the real estate investors' mantra "They're not making any more land" is as true as ever.


You can go online to research major real estate investment funds. Maybe you can find the perfect commercial real estate investment to meet your financial goals.


It does not matter how many commercial real estate deals an investor goes through, they always have an established process that they utilize every single time to assure they cover all their bases and increase the likelihood of a great investment. Synergy has a lot of meaning in the commercial real estate market. By utilizing synergy of process and assets one can realize huge results and profits by making minor adjustments to strategy. Those minor adjustments can often mean the difference between success and failure.

Real Estate Commercial Property

The buyer's market in real estate these days has created all types of real estate available for investors. One of these markets that are considered cheap and more affordable is the commercial real estate market. This can be one of the most profitable markets for investors, but many investors do not put much effort in purchasing commercial properties, because they do not understand the benefits. By comparing costs with benefits, you will soon come to know that commercial real estate is the actual way to go. You should consider the use of property that you are selecting. If it is a commercial property then it is only good for business world, you will find it difficult to sell out property in the future. By choosing a property that is flexible and supple in its usage, you will raise the chance of success with your investment.


You should also consider the location of property.

Is it located on main road? Is it behind other buildings? By checking all these facts, you will be able to get the property that is right for your needs. Try to find the profit margin of the property. By considering the profit margin of the property, you will be able to decide if it is good for you or not. This is an important decision for you to make, so run those numbers and try to find if this property best suits your financial condition. Commercial investment is said to be a great choice over residential investment, simply because it doesn't look to fluctuate so much. By choosing the right property with right place, considering the profit margin, you will be able to invest successfully in commercial real estate and make most of your profit.

Real Leadership

If you were to ask the average man or woman in the street what makes a good leader, the majority, I think, would put forward qualities such as strength, determination, courage and, for many, ruthlessness. If you were to ask how many people demonstrate such qualities, our fictitious survey group might cite Napoleon, Wellington, Margaret Thatcher and some leaders of industry such as Richard Branson. Leadership is perceived as being


in short supply. We are, so many believe, crying out for leadership. (One of the arguments put forward for grammar schools has been that they would produce the next generation of military and industrial leaders). 


But while the word 'leader' usually conjures up the picture of someone like JFK, we are all leaders at certain times - and not just in special circumstances. A parent needs to lead his or her children.

A partner within a relationship will, if the relationship is to be balanced and work, have times of being the leader and other times of being led. Even though leadership may not be a full time occupation, we will all have moments when others look to us for direction, guidance and support.

My experience as a trainer and a consultant has made me very aware that every trainer and every consultant is a leader, and that they have different ways of leading. Becoming clear about my own style of leadership has been very important for me both personally and professionally. It has involved me making explicit some of the assumptions and beliefs that govern my behaviour and has enabled me to recognise how these fundamentally affect the messages I send, and the way of working that fits for me.


Leadership, I have found, is like charity - it begins at home.

To be a good leader of others you first need to know how to lead yourself - and when you can lead yourself you can lead others. I think you need to be clear about the journey you wish to make, the speed at which you wish to travel and the beliefs and values that will guide your path. In the training courses that I run, we call this process pacing yourself (In other words, being true to yourself and not trying to force yourself to be anything that deep down you know you cannot be). It is about becoming the leader that is already within you.

So often when I'm coaching executives my function is to draw out what they have not recognised that they have within themselves. In the context of training, this means allowing the leader to come out as opposed to teaching slick tricks or having to stick 'leadership' on from the outside much as you might stick wall cladding on a house to


cover up cracks. Leadership, when you are true to yourself, flows like a river and is without effort. It emanates and radiates. It is not something that is forced out with determination, or that creates high blood pressure and sleepless nights.


Put another way, leadership is about personal congruence. And the key to personal congruence is being able to pace yourself. To pace yourself you need to be able to honour and acknowledge the different aspects of yourself whether your conscious mind likes them or not. You will also need to address your own particular habitual patterns and experiences. If this sounds like a tall order, the good news is that the ways to achieve this can all be taught.


In addressing these areas I have found myself personally changing and becoming more completely aligned, a process which can be unending for anyone who seeks to realise more of themselves than they have currently achieved. It is like becoming a charioteer with all your horses running in the same direction, at the same speed and with the same intentions. The pay-off is enormous as you are truly able to walk your talk, to practice what you preach or to do what you say. It produces a particular kind of leadership style which is sometimes called 'leading by example'. This is about leading by being: being one whose behaviour is naturally aligned with who you are and what matters to you. My experience is that once people know they can have this, they want it very badly because it is profoundly healing and very empowering.


Leading in this way whether at work or in your personal life means acting with personal purpose stemming from a centred sense of self. It is centred because it steers a safe course between grandiose self-promotion and unitive self-criticism, rather than oscillating violently between the two. To use a much abused word, this really is


empowering. The fruits of such self-empowerment are readily apparent.


Leaders who are empowered have as a high priority the empowerment of those they lead. Expect such people to be: (i) clearer about what matters to them and more able to be themselves; (ii) not just confident but truly competent; (iii) creative because they are able to adapt what they have learnt to their own circumstances; (iv) not just knowing about a subject, but really able to do it and even to live it. 


Once you can pace yourself you are ready to lead yourself and others. The more I have been able to lead in this way, the less I have needed to try to dominate others personally or professionally. The more competent the person becomes, the less they need to dominate, whether as a trainer, a parent, a consultant, a manager, or whatever.


My research suggests that the most effective leaders are motivated by a vision that is allied to their mission. Their mission is an expression of who they are and as a result it is not just a bunch of words, it manifests from within and is an expression of that individual's identity.


Unfortunately, many find themselves in businesses and organisations, in positions where they are expected to demonstrate a leadership style which is not really them, a cultural 'norm' that just doesn't fit. If the culture is made up of bullies bearing threats to create an atmosphere of 'have to' as opposed to one of 'want to', and your nature and belief systems are thrown into conflict when trying to copy such behaviours, leadership will become a heavy burden. Each day will be an exercise in girding loins and repeating in your head 'it's either them or me'. If you are then judged by your ability to mimic external behaviours that violate the inner values that you hold, the way you come across will be seen as confused, indecisive and not 'the stuff we're looking for'. On the other hand, if


you succeed in this deception you may feel split and unable to be yourself. And over time this can eat away inside you, and at your success, like a corrosive acid. As one executive I was coaching said, " On the outside I've got it all but inside I just feel like a hollow tube."


To enhance someone's ability to be a leader in their life, one must first enhance the individual who will be that leader. There is no better way to do this than to create structures which draw out of an individual his or her own unique vision and mission. Why? Because these are born of that person's identity.


I have found that to identify one's mission in life is a very profound experience for the individual. It matters a lot to people and stays with them afterwards. This is because they have achieved a high degree of integration and have a felt experience of what their life purpose is.


It also has two remarkable and often unexpected side effects. People begin to become more successful. They also become more creative. 


Once your sense of self and your mission are aligned with what you do, you become unstoppable. How could you not do your mission if your mission is a natural expression of who you are? As one course participant said to me, 'Now I can enjoy doing me'. From my own experience in aligning my behaviour with my mission I can vouch for the truth in this.


As a result you also feel freed up. Free to do what will support your mission and free to dream up new ways of realising it.


So being a leader is not about commanding vast armies of people, nor is it about having power over others. People who seek power over others are usually chronically disempowered individuals themselves. Nor is leadership about control: the better you are as a leader the better you are able to influence. The more influential you are, the less you need to try to control.


That's why for me the purpose of good leadership training is to uncover the natural leader in each of us. To help each of us manifest our purpose and live it more fully and more successfully.

Real Estate

The house is one of the most real is that nobody will ever have. No matter what your home is large or small, will be very valuable. As a homeowner, selling your home can not be a very welcome development, and so, if you can not find the idea very attractive, you look out for a good Realtor that can sell your house quickly. If you're thinking about getting into contact with any real estate agent and selling your property, you should avoid walking in a representation directly, because letting a total stranger to sell your house is not a good idea. Idea is not very safe to give your property the first meeting of everyone.



main idea is to find an agent who has some experience with the type of property you have. Take the time to research facilities well before deciding on a Realtor, because you should get the value of your home is worth. So keep all these factors into consideration when looking for a good realtor that can sell your house quickly and at a good price.



When you are a real estate agent, you and your agent must develop a strategy. You must decide the price and how long you leave the market before you think of the reduction. You also need to discuss his committee also will avoid misunderstandings in the future. If we talk about these different things when they first start to sell your home, you can find the whole process go much smoother.



The sale of your home itself is not so expensive. You do not have to worry about taxes or dealing with a number of people who have a house sold. However, there is a lot of work, fewer resources at hand, in some cases, and more problems if you decide to sell the house yourself. That decision can only do so highly regarded by both sides. Of course, if you're not in a hurry, you can add the same house before. Then, if you do not sell, you get an agent to help you.



Selling a home is never an easy task. For an owner, it is difficult to dispose of his home and a buyer is difficult to spend hard earned money. Large luxury estate homes are more difficult to sell due to their high cost. In the current economic crisis, nobody can afford to buy goods and certainly not large, extravagant houses. People prefer to buy homes that are functional, rather than the fairy tale. You may have trouble constantly trying to find a suitable place for negotiations, which will satisfy both parties. But do not get through everything that argument. There are some tips to help you sell the house, with only one third of the effort that you would have to invest otherwise.



The price is very important. First, we must examine the market trends to get the right idea of what price range as a residential area at the time. Understand that the house price is not right what you want or what they would have received if he had sold the house six months back. The right price is what the buyer is willing to pay today. Your Real Estate prices is the best bet, because most people can not afford the real estate and homes do not want to spend more than already expensive price range.



Most of the time, there are no costs that you pay out of pocket!My team negotiates aggressively with the banks to ensure you owe nothing. Occasionally, some banks will require homeowners that are completing Short Sales to take small unsecured loans (typically around ,000) that the homeowner must pay off over 5-10 years. These loans are typically at zero percent interest. The banks do this as a good faith gesture on the part of the homeowner. While my team does its best to ensure you walk away owing nothing, we cant promise that because the banks are in control. Even if you end up owing a small amount, it is MUCH better than going through foreclosure or bankruptcy where you could still owe hundreds of thousands of dollars even after they take the house.
