The Benefit of Keeping Common Area Costs in Check

Posted by Jaimie Lynch in Articles. No Comments

6th March

By Jerry Trout

If common area costs don’t make your list of
top rental property concerns, you’re not alone. Many landlords and management
companies don’t see the need to keep these costs in check. They also don’t look
past the capital cost burden of common area improvements. Here’s a few reasons
why this thinking can lead to trouble – especially for those looking to get the
most out of their properties.

Tenant
Turnover

While some management companies may not
particularly care about common area costs, there is a large group that most
definitely does – the tenants. No one wants to occupy an ill-maintained
property. If quality isn’t maintained, tenants will become resentful,
especially if they’re paying for it.

It takes seconds now for a tenant to pull up
all the rental properties available in its general area. If the tenant feels
like your property upkeep is subpar, that may be the straw that breaks … Read More »


Investing in Retail in the Age of eCommerce

When it comes to retail, most investors rely on a classic and relatively simple matrix to determine if an asset is a sound investment. You plug in the sales figures, measure business stability, look at the lease rate and lease term, see who’s guaranteeing the lease, add a couple of other variables and you basically come out with a pretty good idea of whether or not you have a sound investment. But the rules of the game have changed.

Now, those matrixes are completely outdated. A retailer like Toys R Us looked fine according to matrixes 5 years ago. Now, they’re out of business. They may come back as Tru Kids, but will it work? Now, take your rent roll, and assume that at least half your retailers are the next Toys R Us five years from now…

How Residential is Revamping Retail

New mixed-use developments are thriving throughout the
country. The reason is simple: people want convenience close to home. But this
new trend is not just advantageous to the lifestyle of everyday Americans. It’s
a huge opportunity for the savvy retailer.

There’s no arguing numbers for retailers are down almost
everywhere, from patrons to profit and payroll. Adding residences to retail parcels
or parking lots is the latest key to reversing this trend. By using existing,
unused space, you can meld traditional retail and residential to build
exciting, viable new downtowns.

Take the former parking lot at Hunt Valley Towne Centre. Now
known as  Avalon Hunt Valley, the once
sprawling lot has new apartments that are open and leased. Or, in the case of
Owings Mills Mall, the addition of Costco, Lowes and the soon to open Giant
super market as well as other lifestyle retail brands are revamping the area to
complement … Read More »
