Things to consider before investing in real estate

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Nov 17, 2016.

People who are thinking about investing in a piece of commercial property in Philadelphia should consider the purchase carefully. Though commercial real estate can be highly profitable, there are risks with every purchase. The value of commercial real estate can fluctuate with changes in the economy, so it is important to assess the economic trends in each market.

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Nov 11, 2016.

For investors in Pennsylvania and elsewhere who are looking for the diversity of a mutual fund with the high returns of real estate, an interval fund may be worth looking into. These funds allow an investor direct access to a variety of investment types such as private real estate equity and debt. It may also be possible to invest in commercial real estate credit without having to put up as much to make the investment.

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Nov 7, 2016.

Commercial real estate investors in Pennsylvania might pay attention to changes in the economy that can affect real estate markets. Now that the economies of foreign countries are so interconnected, changes around the world can influence real estate markets in the U.S. Though there is a lot of global volatility right now, many real estate analysts believe that the commercial real estate market in the U.S. will stand to benefit from the economic uncertainty in other nations.

Economists and experts bullish about CRE

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Nov 4, 2016.

The commercial property market in Pennsylvania and around the country is likely to remain active in the next few years according to a group of 51 economists and industry experts. The Urban Land Institute releases a Real Estate Consensus Forecast every two years, and the organization’s September 2016 report predicts that office, retail, industrial and apartment vacancy rates, some of which are at near historic lows, could fall even further.

Pension funds show no signs of moving away from CRE

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Nov 3, 2016.

Commercial properties in Pennsylvania and around the country have been snapped up by institutional investors like hedge funds and insurance companies in recent years, and most financial experts expect pension funds at least to continue to buy heavily despite indications that an improving economy could impact returns in the years ahead. Commercial real estate has gone from accounting for 6 percent of the assets managed by U.S. pension funds to 7.3 percent since 2011 according to the British research firm Preqin, and foreign pension funds have been buying even more aggressively.

Legislation and technology are transforming CRE

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Oct 28, 2016.

Many investors in Pennsylvania and around the country stay out of the commercial property market because of the complex paperwork and the amount of regulations involved, but legislation designed to boost investment and the advent of the information age has opened the real estate market up in recent years. In 2012, President Obama signed the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act into law, and one of the provisions of the legislation allows real estate developers to reach a far wider audience by posting their properties online.

CRE investors may have to forego small bank lending

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Oct 20, 2016.

Pennsylvania commercial real estate developers could discover that their funding options are increasingly limited. The Office of the Comptroller of Currency and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation have cautioned CRE lenders multiple times on the grounds that their loan terms weren’t sufficiently rigorous. This has resulted in fewer small lenders wanting to originate new loans.

Pennsylvania CRE projects may see more high-wealth funding

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Oct 18, 2016.

Experts say that commercial real estate, or CRE, has grown increasingly attractive to investors with cash to burn. Individuals with a high net worth are using CRE investing to heighten yields and generate significant amounts of income as opposed to simply trying to maintain their existing capital. Their readiness to invest in markets that other institutions shy away from means that in smaller cities and secondary markets, private investors are becoming important sources of funding.

Loans for commercial real estate projects

On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Commercial Real Estate on Oct 4, 2016.

Commercial real estate development is booming in Pennsylvania and around the country. Big cities like Philadelphia, Miami and New York are seeing a surge in the construction of office buildings and luxury rental properties, while other areas are experiencing a demand in shopping centers and warehouses. However, the Federal Reserve has repeatedly issued warnings about a potential bubble, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has increased its scrutiny of CRE lending practices of commercial banks and forced some banks to increase their reserves. This has caused many financial institutions to cut back on their portfolios.
