Commercial Real Estate and the Scary Stuff

So, it is Halloween week and it occurred to us that, just as we shiver in anticipation of that goblin around a dark corner, commercial real estate is not immune from the fear of uncertainty. Changes in the Capital gains tax and in the FASB rules for lease expense accounting are looming on the horizon. The uncertainty is what is scary. It appears that FASB will require conformance with the practice common elsewhere in the world – carrying of all lease obligations on a balance sheet. The capital gains tax requires some legislative and executive branch action to preserve current rates.

The good news is that this stuff need not be scary. Working with professionals in real estate, law and accounting, owners, buyers and lessees of commercial real estate can make informed, logical decisions based on current and anticipated market, legal and financial conditions. The market information is current and ready – NAI CIR just updated our Harrisburg Regional Commercial Real Estate Market Report.

NAI CIR Clients Expect Trust, Loyalty and Service

At a recent NAI CIR sales meeting, our professional agents described why a real estate owner, tenant, or buyer should choose them…what sets them apart from competition. Interestingly, while NAI CIR focuses a myriad of resources on our platform and professional tool kit, those were not the focus of our agents’ strengths.

NAI CIR agents focus on trust, loyalty and service. We collectively take pride in our culture of trustworthiness, loyalty and unmatched professional service. Our platform and toolkit includes a comprehensive and current property database, best practice templates, systematic marketing programs and our NAI global reach (www.naicir.com).  While these tangible resources are valuable, it is important to learn that our agents recognize the real value to our clients.

We work in a highly competitive and confidential arena. This is a high risk business with high value consequences to our clients. We are fortunate to maintain strong, ongoing relationships with clients we have served for our 40 years in business. We respect their loyalty and understand our obligation to meet their requirements the right way. On occasion we will misstep and when we do, we must step back and focus on the critical factors necessary to our clients’ success…Trust…Loyalty….Service.

Harrisburg Commercial Real Estate Recovery?…it’s all about jobs…

Dr. Peter Linneman, NAI Global’s Chief Economist, just issued the Summer 2010 Linneman Letter. Dr. Linneman, who will be the featured speaker at the Central Pa. Real Estate Symposium in December of this year, is renowned as one of the nation’s leading commercial real estate forecasters. Read a summary of the Linneman Letter here:  http://www.naicir.com/portals/36/docs/pubdownload.pdf

For real estate recovery, Linneman says, it’s all about the economy….namely job growth. Recovery without job growth just doesn’t fill buildings. So, what can we expect here in Central PA? Over time, job growth (and job retention) in Central PA runs a bit ahead of national averages. Linneman projects steady job growth through 2013 at which time he suspects we will have balanced job losses since 2008.

For Harrisburg and Central PA, that seems to project ongoing job growth and further stabilization for the next 2 years. This means increasingly strong activity in our commercial real estate markets. Anecdotally, within the last 8 weeks at NAI CIR, we are seeing a greater number of transactions closing – both on the leasing and sales fronts. We believe the paralysis is over. Values appear to be adjusting, buyers are actively closing and tenants are moving. In Central PA, commercial real estate deals are getting done.
