10 Tips on Financing Commercial Real Estate Writen by Groshan Fabiola If you are hoping to purchase commercial real estate property, then you are most likely going to need financing in order to do this. That is unless you were born fabulously and independently wealthy. There are certain things that lending institutions expect from those they are getting ready to summarily hand large sums of money to. Hopefully, the following tips will help insure that you get the best possible financing for your commercial real estate investment. 1) Make sure you have all the documents you need and that they are accurate and up to date. You need to have a solid business plan in place with facts, figures, estimates, and forecasts. Lenders are making an investment and taking a huge risk when dealing with commercial real estate. If you don’t have a business plan that indicates that you have put a great amount of time, effort, energy, and thought into your business, they are going to be less than enthusiastic about the prospect of taking that risk. 4) Come into the deal with a current appraisal of the property. This can make all the difference in the world. Even if the bank requires you to have another appraisal, it is a good idea to have your own appraisal of the property before you even make an offer on the property. An appraisal will provide you with and unbiased estimate of what the property is truly worth and it will help you determine what kind of risk you are really taking before you’ve put money on the table.
Optimizing Restaurant-Table Configurations By Thompson, Gary M. Publication: Cornell Hotel & Restaurant Administration Quarterly Date: Saturday, February 1 2003 Subject: Customer service (Management), Restaurant industry (Management), Table service (Management) Product: Restaurants & Food Service Having the right-size tables in a position to be combined with other tables to serve large parties can yield additional revenue at virtually no added cost. This article focuses on restaurants with walk-in customers (no reservations are taken), where a host or hostess seats the parties and where parties are seated separately. Restaurants of this kind are common in the United States (e.g., TGIF, Chili's, Applebee's). Specifically, this article examines the issue of which tables should be combinable with which other tables. "Combinability" is the ability to create a larger table from adjacent smaller tables. For example, combinability would allow two adjacent 4-top tables to be combined to seat parties of up eight people. (1) In an earlier investigation I found that, in many cases, having tables dedicated to specific party sizes was preferable to having combinable tables. (2) The reason for this was that placing tables on hold, while waiting for customers to depart an adjacent table that can then be combined with the empty on-hold table, imposes a non- productive idle time for the on-hold tables.
Existing-Home Sales Series The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® Existing-Home Sales Series is the premier measurement of the residential real estate market. On or about the 25th of each month, NAR releases statistics on sales and prices of existing single-family homes for the nation and the four regions. Beginning on February 25, 2005, these figures include condos and co-ops, in addition to single-family homes. The association also produces state-by-state existing-home sales and metro area home prices on a quarterly basis.
What is a Bond Rating A bond rating performs the isolated function of credit risk evaluation. A bond rating does not constitute a recommendation to invest in a bond and does not take into consideration the risk preference of the investor. While many factors go into the investment decision making process, the bond rating is often the single most important factor affecting the interest cost on bonds. There are three major rating agencies for municipal bonds: Moody's Investors Service, Standard & Poor's, and Fitch Ratings. Of the three rating agencies, Standard & Poor's and Moody's rate over 80% of all municipal and corporate bonds.

The Structural Engineer's (SE) job is to determine what kind of steel reinforcement is required at various depths of the pool, given surcharging (vertical loading) and other loading forces that act on your pool. The reinforcement is needed to keep the shell from caving in to those forces. They also calculate things like minimum shell thickness at various depths given those same surcharging conditions. You can see from the picture below all the different variables that need to be accounted for given load conditions and pool depths. Structural engineering is a pretty exact science. Most pools that are built today are so standard that SEs have standard pool drawings that they sell en masse. The only time that an SE has to do Special Engineering is when there are additional surcharge conditions that deviate from the standard pool plans. This would occur when you have extenuating circumstances like having heavy loading conditions on the pool or disturbance of existing soil structure that could compromise the integrity of the house or existing structures on the property.

WHAT IS A TRAFFIC PLAN REVIEW? A traffic plan review is an evaluation of pedestrian and vehicular circulation on development site plans and of traffic design parameters in roadway geometric plans. The review ensures that safe, efficient, and appropriate traffic accommodations are provided on public roads and publicly-used facilities during the development process.
What's a cap rate anyhow? by Ozzie Jurock One of the most difficult and perplexing problems for realtors and investors is finding current Gross and Net Income Multipliers and Cap Rates. Determining the value of an income property generally involves establishing either the Gross or Net Income Multipliers, or the Cap Rate according to comparables.
Cap Rate Follies Avoid These Pitfalls When Calculating Commercial Property Values. Capitalization rates are often controversial and misunderstood variables in commercial real estate valuation equations. To value properties, most buyers and sellers prefer an income approach, which analyzes cash flows to determine debt service and investor return — typically the internal rate of return — so it's easy to see why cap rates are scrutinized. In fact, no other valuation aspect is debated as heavily as cap rates because unsupported data often lead to inaccurate commercial property valuations. By understanding the fallacies that exist, real estate professionals can perform more thorough financial analyses for their clients.
What's it Worth? Deriving Your Capitalization Rate by Ray Alcorn How do you know what a commercial income property is worth? How do you know that you can get your desired return on your investment? Is there a way to calculate the maximum you can pay for an investment and still achieve your investment goals? This article will answer these questions and more about valuing income property. Many real estate investors determine the value of an income property by using the capitalization rate, aka cap rate. It is probably the one most misused concept in real estate investing.
The discount rate often used in capital budgeting that makes the net present value of all cash flows from a particular project equal to zero. Generally speaking, the higher a project's internal rate of return, the more desirable it is to undertake the project. As such, IRR can be used to rank several prospective projects a firm is considering. Assuming all other factors are equal among the various projects, the project with the highest IRR would probably be considered the best and undertaken first. IRR is sometimes referred to as "economic rate of return (ERR)". You can think of IRR as the rate of growth a project is expected to generate. While the actual rate of return that a given project ends up generating will often differ from its estimated IRR rate, a project with a substantially higher IRR value than other available options would still provide a much better chance of strong growth. IRRs can also be compared against prevailing rates of return in the securities market. If a firm can't find any projects with IRRs greater than the returns that can be generated in the financial markets, it may simply choose to invest its retained earnings into the market.

Real Estate Taxes: How To Determine If You Are Paying Too Much Most businesses routinely seek ways to minimize their taxes through effective planning. One area which does not receive significant attention is the payment of real estate taxes on your business property. This is particularly true if your business leases the facility at which it operates since tax decisions are usually left to the landlord. However, when you are renting your facility your Lease commonly provides that real estate taxes are an expense passed through to the tenant by the landlord. Thus, even though the landlord receives the bill, you the tenant, pay the tax.
INSTITUTE FOR MARKET TRANSFORMATION Report on Meetings with California Commercial Property Appraisers October 1998 I. Introduction In September 1998, the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) convened two extended discussion sessions with groups of commercial property appraisers. The purposes of these meetings were to elicit detailed firsthand information on the energy-related valuation practices of California commercial appraisers, and to investigate possibilities for enhanced recognition of energy costs and energy efficiency through improved documentation. This report describes results and findings from the two meetings.
During August 2006, the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®’ (NAR) Marketing Research Department invited 86,777 appraiser members and recipients of the Appraisal Section of the weekly NAR ListServe message to participate in an online survey. Findings reflected in this report were collected from responses received between August 10th and 25th, 2006. A total of 858 respondents participated in this survey. This number is a large enough response rate for answers to be considered statistically significant. At the 95% level of confidence, the statistical error is +/-3.33%. The goal of the survey was to understand how Appraiser members conduct their business, obtain appraisal industry information, and make decisions on their appraisal education and designations. Findings are presented in a SUMMARY OF KEY FINDINGS followed by details in the KEY FINDINGS section. A copy of the survey is included in appendix A and lists of respondents’ answers to open-ended questions are included in appendix
The purpose of this chapter is to establish and describe the dedications and reservations which may or shall be required as conditions of approval for subdivision maps. This chapter outlines the circumstances, procedures, and formulas which may apply to a subdivision map submitted for approval.
OAK TREE CARE The California Oak Foundation is dedicated to the conservation and perpetuation of California's native oak woodlands. The California Oak Foundation educates the general public and decision-makers about the importance of oak woodlands to California's wildlife habitat, watersheds, and quality of life through its newsletters, bulletins, books, symposia, and workshops.
California Oak Woodland Policies and Laws 2006 There are three state laws governing oak woodlands: California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), Professional Foresters Law (PFL) and Public Resources Code §21083.4 (PRC), county mitigation. This is how they work individually and in unison for the conservation of California’s most biologically diverse natural resource:

The Downtown Los Angeles Market Report & 2006 Demographic Survey of New Downtown Residents Executive Summary Background and Purpose Downtown Los Angeles has been in an unprecedented renaissance since the passage of the Adaptive Reuse Ordinance in 1999, which allows for the conversion of vacant office and commercial space into residential use. The renaissance continued with the development of catalytic projects such as STAPLES Center (1999), the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels (2002), and the Walt Disney Concert Hall (2003), as well as the construction of more than 7,000 new and Adaptive Reuse housing units since 1999. In order to quantify the magnitude of Downtown's renaissance, the Downtown Center Business Improvement District (DCBID) retained the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) to gather business, economic and demographic data that are of interest to corporate, retail and restaurant tenants, investors, developers, bankers, residents and the community. The purpose of the report and survey was to profile the residents of Downtown - who really live, work and play there - and the business community to assess the overall economic power of Downtown.
BACKGROUND Between 1980 and 1994, more than 1,600 banks insured by the FDIC were closed or received FDIC financial assistance. Many of the banks that failed during that time were very active participants in the commercial real estate markets. Historical analysis of the banking crisis of the 1980s has revealed that concentrations of real estate loans relative to total assets were higher for banks that failed than for banks that did not fail. (Note: History of the Eighties–Lessons for the Future, Volume 1, prepared by the FDIC Division of Research and Statistics (now part of the FDIC's Division of Insurance and Research).) During this period, large demand for real estate investments produced a boom in commercial real estate construction activity. In addition, overly optimistic appraisals, together with the relaxation of debt service coverage ratios (DSCR), the reduction in the maximum loan-to-value (LTV) ratios, and the loosening of underwriting standards, often meant that borrowers frequently had little or no equity at stake, and in some cases lenders bore most or all of the risk. (Note: The Barron’s Business Guide’s
Purpose of Audit The reliability of appraisals and sufficiency of insurance The FDIC’s guidance to institutions and examiners on the reliability of appraisals and sufficiency of property and flood insurance for real estate loans was generally adequate. Specifically, the FDIC’s Rules and Regulations that provide institution guidance address all three areas. Further, examination guidance for the three areas is contained in the related examination manuals and Examination Documentation Modules for planning and performing examinations.
Assessors' Handbook ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Assessors' Handbook is a series of manuals developed by the staff of the Board of Equalization in an open process. The objective of the Assessors' Handbook is to give county assessors, their staff, and other interested parties an understanding of the principles of property assessment and real and personal property appraisal for property tax purposes. The Assessors' Handbook is intended to serve as a guide for the appraisal and assessment of real and personal property. Additionally, the Assessors' Handbook presents the Board staff's interpretation of rules, laws, and court decisions on property assessment.
As part of the process of producing the Assessors' Handbook, meetings were held with assessors, industry representatives, and other interested parties. Issues that could not be resolved were decided by the Members of the Board of Equalization after hearing testimony from interested parties and Board staff.
In attempting to relate the advice or guidance provided in the Assessors' Handbook, care must be taken to ensure that the advice has not been superseded by subsequent legislative or administrative action, court decisions, or reconsideration of staff's position. Following advice provided in the Assessors' Handbook is not reasonable reliance upon written advice for purposes of obtaining relief from a failure to pay tax, interest, and/or penalty. In any instance where there is an inconsistency between a statute or regulation and an Assessors' Handbook section, statutory or regulatory law is controlling.
Assessors' Handbook sections are available here for viewing and printing. You may also purchase copies of Assessors' Handbook sections by downloading, printing, and submitting the following form:

Scout camp appraisal: $12.3 million Friday, August 03, 2007 By Lynn Moore firstname.lastname@example.org The Chicago Boy Scouts claim their Owasippe camp property is virtually worthless with its current zoning, but a recent appraisal values it at $12.3 million.
That appraisal is one of the reasons Blue Lake Township is asking a local judge to throw out a lawsuit filed against the township by the Chicago Area Council of Boy Scouts.
Township Attorney Jim Nelson said the appraisal ordered by the township "really refutes" the council's claims that its 4,780-acre property must be rezoned for it to have any significant value.
How to Prepare a Picture-perfect Relocation Appraisal November 1999 By Alvin "Chip" Wagner III, CRP, IFA This article will help the transferee understand the appraiser's role in the relocation process and aid the transferee in gathering the information necessary to complete the appraisal. The relocation appraisal process can seem confusing to average homeowners. Therefore, the more a relocation coordinator knows about the process, the more smoothly the appraiser will be able to get his or her job done. Appraisers follow a set of federally accepted guidelines and practices known as the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), which govern the ethical and legal aspects of the appraisal reporting process. Relocation appraisers must follow a set of guidelines and instructions set forth in ERC's Residential Appraisal Report. Occasionally, the appraiser is asked by a client to depart from those instructions to accommodate a corporation's relocation policy.
Depending on the appraisal's purpose and type, its size and detail will vary. The relocation appraisal commands a more thorough analysis than the typical residential appraisal, which is performed on the standardized, two-page Uniform Residential Appraisal Report (URAR) for mortgage appraisals and other purposes.
When an appraisal is done for a relocation, the appraiser may spend from one to two hours inspecting the interior and exterior of the home. The appraiser will pay special attention to the overall interior condition, decor, and appeal of the home. In addition to the standard exterior photos that are taken of the front, rear, and street views of the home, the relocation appraiser will take interior photographs of every room in the home, including the bathrooms and basement.
Legislation Addressing Appraisal Fraud Recently Introduced in the House and Senate Over the past couple of weeks, several pieces of mortgage fraud legislation were introduced in the house and senate that also contain provisions enhancing appraisal independence. In the House, H.R. 2061, the "Predatory Mortgage Lending Practices Act", provides for the federal regulation of mortgage professionals in the subprime market place, also contains provisions that increase penalties for attempting to influence the appraisal process. In the Senate, there are also several bills that would impact the appraisal industry. S 1222, the “Stop Fraud Act” would develop a grant program within HUD targeted for state appraisal agencies to improve monitoring and enforcement of housing appraisal regulations. S. 1299 “The Borrowers Protection Act” would prohibit mortgage originators from engaging appraisers who would fail to act in good faith, not comply with state regulations and would have an interest in the property being appraised. More importantly, S. 1299 would require appraisers to be bonded. S. 1299 also prohibits mortgage originators from seeking to influence the appraisal process to meet a targeted value.

The NAHB Research Center, the Plastics Pipe Institute, the Plastic Pipe and Fittings Association, and PATH collaborated on the guide. The Design Guide discusses the properties and advantages of PEX piping, explains the types of fittings and joining methods it requires, and describes PEX piping system designs and layouts. Also featured in the guide is information about the treatment of PEX in major plumbing codes and relevant jurisdictional code provisions, detailed instructions for installing PEX piping, performance and lab testing data, and testimonials from plumbers and homebuilders on their experiences with PEX.
Estimate the value of your home based on the average home price appreciation for your area When using the House Price Calculator, please note that it does not project the actual value of any particular house. Rather, it projects what a given house purchased at a point in time would be worth today if it appreciated at the average appreciation rate of all homes in the area. The actual value of any house will depend on the local real estate market, house condition and age, home improvements made and needed, and many other factors. Consult a qualified real estate appraiser in your area to obtain a professional estimate of the current value of your home. Title XI of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 requires that any appraisal used in connection with a federally related transaction must be performed by a competent individual whose professional conduct is subject to supervision and regulation. Appraisers must be licensed or certified according to state law.
