What Does Ben Talk About?
Creating Your Dream Team
Belief in oneself and the team is the secret to success, coupled with the mindset to learn, grow, and protect. Success is a team effort, and building a strong team of professionals in commercial real estate is essential. Choosing the right team members who align with your values and goals can help achieve investment objectives and navigate complex situations. Leadership earns respect and helps make wise decisions in navigating adversity.
Talk Takeaways: Leadership will earn you respect from your team and partners help you make wise decisions and especially allow you to navigate adversity to come out on top.
Pick Your Niche
To build a successful commercial real estate portfolio, it’s important to find what works best for you. With so many property types and market conditions to consider, it’s important to do your research and assess your capital needs and connections to the market. Once you have all the information, create a strategy that aligns with your investment goals, whether that’s steady cash flow or adding value and flipping a property. Don’t forget to consider leases and titles, as each option has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Talk Takeaways: To pick the right niche, you should consider your goals, the different categories of commercial real estate, local and national market conditions, and the advantages and pitfalls of different leases and titles.
Find Your Property
To find the perfect commercial property, you need to build a wide network of resources, starting with finding a knowledgeable broker. Actively searching for properties that meet your needs and going beyond your local area can also be helpful. Building a referral network from your sphere of influence and engaging with other brokers, property owners, attorneys, and insurance agents can all help you access more opportunities.
Talk Takeaways: The more you are out there interacting with real estate professionals and researching this market, the stronger your network will become. You never know where or when your game-changing deal will knock on your door.
Learn To Love Due Diligence
To make a smart investment in commercial real estate, due diligence is crucial. This involves ordering third-party reports, such as environmental assessments, property condition assessments, and inspections, and reviewing budgets, receipts, and expenses against property operating statements. It’s also important to review and abstract all the leases and insurance policies, tour and assess the property’s condition and find a property management or asset management group to support you. By mastering the art of reviewing information, you can gain the wisdom to make the right decision and maximize your investment.
Talk Takeaways: The key to successful commercial real estate investing is risk mitigation. Deep due diligence provides you with the information you need to avoid big mistakes.
Financing Your Deal
Securing financing for commercial real estate is crucial, and it’s important to have a solid team in place to help you navigate the process. Find a lender or mortgage broker that is a good fit for you, negotiate a term sheet, and have a commercial real estate attorney review loan documents. Set up regular meetings to stay on track and order any additional reports or documents needed. Keep in mind that securing financing is as much about the willingness of people to work with you as it is about presenting a solid business case.
Talk Takeaways: When it comes to financing a deal, there is no such thing as too much information. Money is risk adverse. Demonstrating your business case requires documented proof. Just make sure it is easily understandable by lenders.
Operating Your Property
In addition to property management, it’s important to also consider risk management. Make sure you have adequate insurance coverage for your property, including liability, property, and casualty coverage. Work with an insurance agent who has experience in commercial real estate and who can provide you with the right coverage for your investment. As you operate your property, it’s important to also focus on tenant relationships. Good tenant relationships can help you maintain a high occupancy rate and reduce turnover. Make sure you have a strong lease agreement in place and consider offering incentives or bonuses to tenants who renew their leases. And finally, as you evaluate your exit strategy, consider all your options – selling the property, refinancing the loan, or even bringing on partners or investors. Make sure you have a good understanding of your property’s value and potential and make decisions based on your long-term goals and objectives.
