Capital is flowing in NJ commercial real estate experts say
A successful commercial real estate transaction can involve many important components. It is because of this that a thorough understanding of those components can be useful.
Industry executives recently reported that following a scarcity of capital, capital is now flowing in New Jersey's commercial real estate industry. A local industry expert noted in its report that industrial real estate investment sales reached record levels in New Jersey last year with $1.1 billion in deals closed. The same industry expert saw no sign of a slowdown in 2014. In a recent survey, wherein a large number of national institutional industry players were surveyed, 77 percent named New Jersey at the top investment target.
The same industry expert also predicts a comeback in the office market for 2014 which has so far seen $72 million in office transactions close and another $324 million in office deals under contract. Some experts do not expect to see some of the same problems that have been present in the market in recent years. The real estate market offers many opportunities and with careful consideration, disputes and potential problems can be avoided. Many times, when drafting a purchase agreement or engaging in contract negotiations, appropriate guidance can either avoid a dispute or help ensure one is not likely to develop down the road.
Having the appropriate documentation and an informed understanding of the different aspects of a transaction can also help ensure its success. Additionally, when approaching a commercial real estate transaction, it is important to take into account the current market and overall climate of the industry. Whether the transaction presents venture capital considerations or other commercial real estate financing concerns, having a clear understanding of the process will help with the purchase or sale of a property for industrial, office, retail or mixed use.
Commercial real estate transactions can sometimes seem complex and involve many important considerations. Because of this, having a guide and advocate throughout the process can be essential to help ensure a successful commercial real estate transaction.
