Commercial real estate forecasts indicate flatter prices

People in Florida involved in the commercial real estate market may be interested to know that property prices have stabilized. According to research by Green Street Advisors, this current trend is expected to last for six months to a year; they noted that commercial property prices have generally stopped their sharp upswing over the previous several years. There are a number of reasons for the change, especially because interest rates have stopped their decline and are actually on the rise.

Considerations before buying in a new development

New real estate developments offer some advantages to home buyers in Florida. They promise the buyer a brand new home, that no one else has lived in, in a neighborhood specifically-designed to provide everything the homebuyer needs. Typically, developers begin selling homes in new developments between 12 and 24 months before the anticipated move-in date, though, so some timeline planning is usually required.

Getting ready to buy a home

There are certain things Florida residents can do to improve their chances of being able to purchase a home in an area that has a high cost of living. Taking these steps as well as preparing carefully and avoiding expensive mistakes can be factors in getting an ideal rate for a mortgage.

Blockchain could change how transactions are completed

Blockchain could have the power to make commercial real estate transactions more efficient. This may be especially true for smaller investors in Florida and other states as blockchain might make it easier to raise money. Using this type of technology allows deals to be made between relevant parties themselves without the need for an intermediary. Transactions are tracked and stored on a decentralized ledger that is both digital and encrypted.

The true value of a home may be surprising

It is well understood that real estate is a cyclical market. Prices rise and fall, typically with a long-term upward trend in Florida, based on a number of factors. One common thread in every type of market is that for the vast majority of individuals and families, their home is their single most valuable asset. While understanding the true value of their home is simply a curiosity and informational for many people, for others, it is an integral part of their long-term plan for financial security.

Things to know when purchasing commercial real estate

When businesses of any size in Florida and elsewhere need to grow, purchasing commercial real estate is often a top priority. Investing in additional space for inventory, office workers, manufacturing or other business needs can be a significant investment, so owners and managers should keep a few guidelines in mind when going through the process. The most important consideration may be to think about the long-term plans of the company. The new commercial real estate should be able to accommodate growth for a significant period of time.

Here's what home sellers need to know

Homeowners in Florida who are ready to move have a lot to handle. Not only do they need to find a new house, but they need to sell their old one as well. Selling a house requires planning, preparation and proper execution. With the right tools, any homeowner can sell a house, but there are a few things any seller needs to keep in mind.

Commercial real estate looks to youth markets

The commercial real estate market is changing with the time, and many developers are showing an interest in reaching out to "Generation Z," the term used to label people born in 1996 or later. Younger than the Millennials, the oldest members of this generation are beginning to graduate college, enter the workforce and purchase or invest in property. As a result, developers are thinking about how to tailor projects to reach this rising audience for new construction. Brand strategists advise incorporating community spaces, earth-friendly materials and "gig economy"-welcoming environments in order to reach this audience.
