Investment real estate consists of property that is rented, or can be rented, to third parties. Thus, it is revenue producing.

A real estate investment has three ways to create a return on the initial equity investment. The cash flow produced by revenues net of expenses and debt service (payment of interest and principal), the increase in the property’s value, and the payoff of a loan through the debt service funded by the net operating income of the property. Because real estate can be readily used as collateral for loans and, if leased, provide the cash flow to pay off that loan it is particularly suited for leverage investments.

The acquisition of investment real estate can be a great way to accumulate wealth, if the proper level of expertise is used in negotiating its acquisition and subsequent management. A successful acquisition requires that the appropriate factors are properly evaluated. Four of these factors are discussed below.

First-the location must be analyzed. The relevant items vary with the type of property. Residential rentals for example are impacted by household income levels, population trends, proximity to employment opportunities, and proximity to retail and commercial service businesses among other characteristics.

Second-the type of tenants that are occupying the subject or are expected to occupy the subject must be analyzed. The relevant items vary with the type of property. A small strip center, for example, might appeal to national credit tenants due to its proximity to major retailers or other traffic generators. The credit strength of the tenants has a substantial impact on the value of the property.

Third-the features of the property must be analyzed and their impact on tenant mix and appeal considered. For example the clear height of an industrial building and the number of loading dock affects whether it is suitable for use as a distribution warehouse. A medical or dental office requires more parking than does an insurance sales office or an architect office.

Fourth-the condition of the property improvements must be analyzed. If a building requires to be remodeled to attract (or retain) tenants or a roof cover requires replacement the effective acquisition cost would include the purchase price and the expenditures to correct these problems.

These factors all tend to change over time (sometimes very quickly such as the value of a building that was leased to Block Buster) and as professional appraisers we can help you understand the potential risks and potential rewards of a real estate investment and its probable value whether you are considering a purchase, a sale, or underwriting a mortgage-secured loan.

The analysis of investment real estate takes experience, education, and expertise, we bring all three to the assignment.
