Are you new to Commercial Real Estate, or have you never known what any of the following terms mean? Here we give you a quick breakdown of common terminology found in the world of CRE (commercial real estate):
Build Out: The construction or improvements of the interior space, including flooring, walls, finished plumbing, electrical work, etc.
Capitalization Rate (Cap Rate): The value given to the property when the Net Operating Income (NOI) is divided by the current market value or sales price. A cap rate can be used as a rough indicator of how quickly an investment will pay for itself. The higher the cap rate, the better.
Contiguous: Touching at some point or along a boundary; spaces next to one another.
Deed Restriction: An imposed restriction in a deed that limits the use of the property. For example, a restriction could prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages.
Eminent Domain: The governments’ right to condemn and acquire property for public use. The government must provide the owner with fair compensation.
Escrow: A written agreement among parties, requiring that certain property/funds be placed with a third party. The object in escrow is released to a designated entity upon completion of some specific occurrence.

As the COVID-19 pandemic sweeps across the nation, CRE’s multifamily sector is put in a unique position. Being the space where the home-life of residents merges with the commercial arena, multifamily communities are in a bracket in and of itself.
Multifamily property owners have a responsibility to keep their tenants safe and prevent the contagion from spreading throughout the community’s population. Fortunately, there are some simple steps that property owners can take that can help bend the curve and keep your residents safe, healthy, and informed.
Here are 4 highly recommended COVID-19 response guidelines for multifamily property owners:Send Out Regular Email Updates
The COVID-19 situation is updating on a daily, hourly, and even minute-by-minute basis. Breaking news, adjustments to protocols, and new discoveries are coming out constantly; and it’s up to multifamily property owners to ensure that their residents are up-to-speed with the latest state of affairs.

It seems that no matter who you are talking with right now, everyone wants to know the same thing. How is the current pandemic going to affect real estate values and lease rates, in both the short and the long term? I would expect this from clients and colleagues, but I even have friends and family asking me the same question. It has become increasingly evident just how much commercial real estate is intertwined with the overall economy.
First, let me dispel any misconception that prices are going down because of the current economic turmoil. I have had many prospects presume there must be some good deals out there because the stock market is falling. I’m here to say that simply is not the case. The commercial real estate market does not react overnight, it is a much slower cycle. This is not to say that everything is status quo. Landlords are getting creative with offering incentives such as free rent to tenants to lock in the long term. Yet the two biggest factors that will impact pricing long term is supply vs demand and availability of financing.
Many are comparing the pandemic to the 2008-10 recession, but in the recession, demand dropped off significantly and lenders were not making loans. It is too soon to tell if either of those will occur this time around. Demand will vary by market segment, which I will get into further, but the early indication is that the low-interest rates and availability of funds will help drive the recovery.
