Why don't I see more firms investing in...You would think Hawaii would be on the list of places to invest for many firms and funds, but you really don't see any concentration. I would imagine Honolulu is a pretty strong CRE market. Thoughts? 2 months 3 weeks
When will the 80% LTV days come?We used to have a pretty good lending relationship that was funding 80% LTV for retail and hotel properties provided of course that the debt service coverage was very strong. However, once the recession hit, this changed pretty fast. Nowadays I am only slowly starting to hear about 80% LTV, but... 4 months 1 day
Any build to suit developers here? It's a space I am increasingly fond of lately and wanted to get an idea of profitability here. For example, I own a pretty good piece of land. On one side there is a Wendy's on the other is a McDonald's, so the location is pretty good for another restaurant chain. I am just trying to understand the... 4 months 1 week
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... 9 months 4 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... 12 months 2 days
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... 1 year 2 weeks
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... 1 year 3 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... 1 year 1 month
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... 1 year 3 months

These people saying that airbnb has impacted the...These people saying that airbnb has impacted the hotel industry know nothing. First of all, RevPar, the biggest financial metric used in the hotel industry is at record highs. The hotel industry is far from hurting. Second, the clientele that airbnb caters to have rarely ever paid a $150 a night to... 4 days 4 hours
I completely ignore broker proformas. Most of...I completely ignore broker proformas. Most of them are hilarious. I only read them to get a good laugh. I also generally ignore anything market related. The reason is that if you are buying a property in a certain market, you should know about that market and dont need a broker explaining it to you... 2 weeks 2 days

The mentality I am seeing now is that a rise in...The mentality I am seeing now is that a rise in interest rates won't affect CRE prices. People keep telling me to look at history and they say 5 out of 7 rate hikes, CRE prices kept climbing. However, in my opinion, I do think its different this time because rates are literally so freaken low now... 1 month 2 weeks
As the person above said, buy underperforming...As the person above said, buy underperforming retail centers, renovate, push occupancy and flip. I would apply the same to hotels. Buy properties with low end flags, renovate, put an awesome brand to get access to significant base of guests, grow revenue, and flip. 2 months 1 week

CTL financing is typically up to 100%....CTL financing is typically up to 100%. Stuffingham is right. It's not very common. He also forgot to mention that the the lease would be fully amortizing meaning that the underwriters lend 100%, but the principal and interest are fully paid off at the time of lease expiration. So a 20 year lease... 2 months 3 weeks
I think brokerage will go. Look at think brokerage will go. Look at That business model will dominate. I personally know six sellers that had properties out on the market. Their brokers were unable to compete with the prices that received. It is because there is market to create a bidding war against... 2 months 3 weeks

Its a services firm and if the top producers leave, then they just lost a ton of revenue. Though I am sure being a bigger name might allow some scale, but not nearly as most people... 2 months 4 weeks
