Working with equity placement agents/capital...Previously we were raising money through our private client list, but lately we been approached by several placement agents that like our portfolio and acquisition criteria. I know typically fees vary anywhere from 5%-7%. How are the fees structured? Some of them are asking for an upfront retention... 3 months 2 weeks
How much do CRE brokers lie? Currently been bidding on this retail strip center and I truly skeptical of what the broker is saying about other bids. He works for one of the big brokerages. Anyways I know there are brokers on this board or former brokers, how often did you provide "misleading" information to increase bidding... 5 months 2 weeks
Real Estate Appraisal Question?This is a simple question for the lenders/appraisers currently here. Currently looking at cashing out on one of our properties, but want to gauge the value of the property. Our current bank that we have a strong relationship with is most likely going to finance this. However, if we order the... 6 months 1 week
Max LTV from lenders?Currently looking at buying a property that is coming into my market for my family. Looking to do a cash out refi on one and then use that capital to buy the other. Was doing the calculations and need about an 85% LTV, which I know sounds ridiculous, but I am being told that since we are still... 6 months 2 weeks
Land Development Questions?So in the area near where I live there is prime area that's for sale on the market. The total price we are looking at is $250k, which is actually very good for 2 acres. The deal is off-market, which allows us to get a really good price and we have known the seller for 15 years. Now this is a... 7 months 3 weeks
Have you ever been fired or laid off?Was in the middle of cleaning filing cabinets at home and saw an old termination letter from one of my first jobs. Though it was several years ago, I can still remember it like yesterday. A new boss came in, who was an incredibly terrible person, and only focused on cost cutting. She had no clue... 8 months 3 weeks

95/5 Equity Structure QuestionCurrently working on a deal where the sponsor is putting in 5% of the required equity. The 95% is coming from a pension fund. The sponsor has listed an acquisition fee in the loan amount. The package states that the sponsor will consider the fee to be used as the 5% equity portion. Is this... 1 year 1 week
When is the market going to shift to a buyers...I wanted to start a healthy debate on the future of CRE prices going forward. Let's be honest, prices are overheating, especially in top markets like NYC, SF, DC. I been seeing cap rates for trophy assets under 5%. some even under 3%. The only cap rates at 9% or 10% are some serious risky... 1 year 3 weeks

Which would you choose?[quote=Ricky Rosay]prospie wrote:fez says nothing that I can disagree with, but if it were me, I'd think hard about the new office, as I just personally get a kick out of things like that.

LASIK surgery? Thoughts?Had it done just last year. Completely worth it, but do a ton of diligence before you consider it. First of all, your prescription needs to stabilize. Mine stabilized for about 2 years before I did it. So your world off from doing it. The fact that yours keeps increasing means you are not even... 2 months 2 weeks
Tenant Rep vs. Investment SalesI never said refund any money. However, if you gave a single firm a ton of business and that broker has stuck with them, they should work with you on their fees. We had this happen only a handful of times and maybe our situation is different because the tenant rep has known us for a long time. 2 months 3 weeks
Tenant Rep vs. Investment SalesYes, I can confirm this too, landlords have pretty much always foot the bill. Hence the leasing commissions. Although DCD, I rarely hearing them keeping the whole piece if a tenant defaults through, they will work with you on getting it re-leased for a fraction of the cost or nearly free of charge... 2 months 3 weeks
Tenant Rep vs. Investment SalesIt really depends. Also very dependent on market and you could be too dependent on that region's economy. However, the nice thing is that you guy get a piece or should get a piece every time a tenant renews its lease. For investment sales, right now is the best time to be in this business. Its... 2 months 3 weeks
Cushman SelloffThose guys won't pay 10x EBITDA. I honestly don't see why the current owners care who the buyer is. If anything, the most competitive bidder will be another top brokerage firm. I wouldn't be surprised with CBRE and JLL going into a bidding war if they allowed other brokers to buy. Not too... 2 months 3 weeks

Poll Review: August 2006 to February 2015 - Where...One that isn't on the either poll is "Creating a startup". I know you could say its similar to starting your own business, but people can interpret it different ways and might not consider that a startup. I am sure the responses for that answer would have seen significant changes. 3 months 1 day

Working with equity placement agents/capital...Its likely that you may be only doing debt deals. I know there are several groups within RE brokerages that call themselves capital markets. Some of these groups only work on sourcing debt transactions. It depends on if your group handles equity placements. 3 months 1 week
