The Due Diligence Handbook for Commercial Real Estate

ISBN: 1511996897
Release Date: 2015-06-25
Genre:

There's a huge problem in the commercial real estate business that nobody is talking about- DUE DILIGENCE. The vast majority of investors, real estate brokers and commercial real estate professionals barely scratch the surface conducting their due diligence when purchasing commercial real estate investments. Investors are taking unnecessary risks and throwing money away or making bad investments, by not properly performing due diligence. In fact, they are leaving big money on the table without even realizing it.Brokers are putting themselves at risk for potential litigation and missing an opportunity to help their clients as a true ally by learningthese principles. All because "they don't know what they don't know". I was in the same position, until I created a system that made the entire process easier and less stressful. Having and adhering to a proven system allows you to do it faster, easier, more efficiently and you're less likely to miss something. It reduces the stress; makes you feel more confident; makes the sellers of the properties less likely to try to play games while negotiating with you, and ultimately helps to make you a betterinvestor because you are more prepared. This handbook gives you a process to follow. A "road map" that takes you through from beginning to end. It is written in a concise, "easy to follow" fashion as a real due diligence tool and is not intended as a voluminous textbook on the subject. It's based upon over 30 years of experience in the commercial real estate business and acquiring over 9 million square feet from private and institutional owners. The fundamentals remain the same and they are all applicable, whether you're acquiring residential rental properties, an industrial building, a skyscraper or retail shopping center. Some of the things you will learn from the book . . . What to negotiate in the purchase and sale agreement so that you can maximize the opportunities for yourself when it comes timeto negotiate further with the seller. Essential provisions to ask for in the purchase and sale agreement. (These could end up costing you dearly later if you don't have them inthere). Specific issues and provisions to look for in the leases. (These could be potentially devastating to the investment after you own it). Conducting tenant interviews and what questions to ask so that you can uncover any problems or issues (This can be a goldmine of information). Cost cutting tips and dozens of strategies that will help you add value to the property once you own it. One of the most critical processes done during the due diligence process is the underwriting and financial analysis, which is constantly being revised during that process. (Included is a list of essential questions that must be addressed.) How to ensure that you are getting all you deserve when finalizing the transaction and what to look for on the closing statement to make sure you are. (Most investors leave a lot of money behind by not knowing this information). In addition, you get at the end of handbook . . . Sample Lease Abstract Form (which shows you how to summarize all the main deal points and provisions of a lease document). Due Diligence Checklist Due Diligence Document Checklist Sample Tenant Questionnaire (a sample list of questions that you should ask of tenants when conducting a tenant interview). By having this knowledge and my "step-by-step" system, you will be more prepared and less stressed; more confident in your ability to negotiate and go up against any seller. There are too many things to remember during the process. We need reminding as much as we need learning. Get it now and be prepared for your next real estate investment. Many investors keep it as a constant companion when purchasing real estate.

With smart and engaging prose, the book: • Discusses how the best manifestations of ambition, entrepreneurship and mentoring can lead to a life that not only fulfills financial obligations, but also leaves a lasting legacy • Describes ways in which Americans and American companies can act to avoid the kind of crisis that crippled the country’s economy • Details how to build a core set of values to discover wealth on one’s own terms Given the turmoil in financial markets over the past few years, many people are reevaluating what it means to be “rich.” Goodbye Gordon Gekko shows how it’s possible to be well-off without all the trappings of wealth.

The Behavior Gap

Author: Carl Richards
Publisher: Penguin
ISBN: 9781101559550
Release Date: 2012-01-03
Genre: Business & Economics

"It's not that we're dumb. We're wired to avoid pain and pursue pleasure and security. It feels right to sell when everyone around us is scared and buy when everyone feels great. It may feel right-but it's not rational." -From The Behavior Gap Why do we lose money? It's easy to blame the economy or the financial markets-but the real trouble lies in the decisions we make. As a financial planner, Carl Richards grew frustrated watching people he cared about make the same mistakes over and over. They were letting emotion get in the way of smart financial decisions. He named this phenomenon-the distance between what we should do and what we actually do-"the behavior gap." Using simple drawings to explain the gap, he found that once people understood it, they started doing much better. Richards's way with words and images has attracted a loyal following to his blog posts for The New York Times, appearances on National Public Radio, and his columns and lectures. His book will teach you how to rethink all kinds of situations where your perfectly natural instincts (for safety or success) can cost you money and peace of mind. He'll help you to: • Avoid the tendency to buy high and sell low; • Avoid the pitfalls of generic financial advice; • Invest all of your assets-time and energy as well as savings-more wisely; • Quit spending money and time on things that don't matter; • Identify your real financial goals; • Start meaningful conversations about money; • Simplify your financial life; • Stop losing money! It's never too late to make a fresh financial start. As Richards writes: "We've all made mistakes, but now it's time to give yourself permission to review those mistakes, identify your personal behavior gaps, and make a plan to avoid them in the future. The goal isn't to make the 'perfect' decision about money every time, but to do the best we can and move forward. Most of the time, that's enough." From the Hardcover edition.

Theresa Bradley-Banta's Invest In Apartment Buildings features tales from the real estate fast lane that only Bradley-Banta shares. It fills you in on the so-called "guru snafus"-the pitfalls that occur because investors follow the advice of the "gurus" of the moment-and lets you in on every aspect of the deal from start to finish.
