Where Are the Warehouses for Rent in Columbus Ohio? The Industrial Real Estate Wave Continues

Warehouses for Rent in Columbus OhioLooking at warehouses for rent in Columbus, Ohio might leave you empty-handed or, at the very least, with an unflattering representation from the good old Oxford English dictionary. The definition reads as follows: “a large building where raw materials or manufactured goods may be stored before their export or distribution for sale.”

Jolly good, right? Not! Because when you dig a little deeper, it becomes clear that Oxford’s matter-of-fact prose doesn’t do warehouse space for rent any justice. Not at all. In fact, in many respects, warehouse rental space is the backbone of the U.S. economy. While our air, rail, interstate highway, and shipping network is undoubtedly robust, without warehouses to rent in Columbus, Ohio, the American economy would grind to a halt. (Consider the strategically located facilities in our region that are striking distance to numerous population centers throughout the Midwest, South, and Northeast/Mid-Atlantic!)

5 Reasons Why Banking on the Future of Retail Rental Space is a Brainy Choice

Retail Rental SpaceJust as many today predict an all-digital retail environment, a final death blow to brick-and-mortar retail rental space, so have they expected the long-coveted “paperless office.” Nearly 50 years ago, in a Business Week article titled, “The Office of the Future,” writer Vincent E. Giuliano typed out a reasonably prophetic sentence: “By 1990, most record-handling will be electronic.”

Considering that by 1991, nearly a quarter of college graduates owned a personal computer, it would be easy to assume the paperless office would undoubtedly be around today, 31 years after the article’s publication.

Except that it’s not. Not even close. And neither has “Amazon everything” come to pass. Continue reading…

The Ultimate Guide to Estate Planning Appraisal for Real Estate Properties

Estate Planning Appraisal ServicesRecently, a beloved Canadian reached the milestone age of 90, joining a group of more than 2 million strong south of his native border. It is a group of increasingly vibrant – “and growing” – individuals with many estate planning appraisal and real estate planning needs for multiple properties.

No, we’re not talking about Jim Carrey; he’s 59. We’re also not talking about Justin Bieber. He’s not even 30. We’re talking about none other than Captain Kirk himself (or, if you prefer, the Priceline pitchman) William Shatner. While his addition to the coveted 90-year-old club is welcomed news for nonagenarians and their families alike (not to mention his rabid fans), the logistics of that longevity include some serious discussions over estate planning. As people live longer than ever before, they are increasing the time they have to add to their property and wealth accumulation. Estate planning and real estate planning can feel daunting at first (especially if your list of assets is galaxy-stretching long like a certain Starfleet captain), but it doesn’t have to be.

In-House vs. 3rd-Party On-Site Property Managers: Which Is Best for Your CRE?

In-House vs 3rd Party On-Site Property ManagersWhen it comes to property management – and property management companies – a great debate rages on. In some sense, it’s a debate that is as old as the commercial real estate industry itself; a profession that got its unofficial start in the 19th century. (Consider that it was only a few short decades after Founding Father, elder statesman, and successful businessman Benjamin Franklin passed into history.

No stranger to offering business-related sage advice, Benjamin Franklin was fond of reminding us all that “death and taxes” were the only two certainties in this world. While Franklin knew that death and taxes were guarantees, how those taxes are paid, and who’s managing the properties taxed is anything but certain. Then, as now, there are two schools of thought: third-party on-site property management companies vs. in-house property management (or “self” management).

Commercial Real Estate Appraisal Review: Essential Handbook to a Necessary and Influential 2nd Opinion

Commercial Real Estate Appraisal Review Essential HandbookIn the age of social media, we’re frequently asking friends and family for their thoughts on a subject. Unlike a commercial real estate appraisal review, most of the answers from “Facebook experts” are not fact-based; the responses on your social media post will range from beliefs to convictions to opinions.

Fortunately, we do not conduct commercial real estate appraisals on social media! And, the commercial real estate appraisal review process is not just a second opinion or a survey to friends or even colleagues; it is a required, in-depth analysis by industry experts. In most instances, such as public development projects or litigation cases, the commercial appraisal review is a mandatory examination of an appraisal report to spot mistakes, address errors in a CRE appraiser’s judgment or update information based on changing conditions due to the passage of time.
