Dodds Participates in Greenville Economic Development Event

By

I was recently invited to speak at the 1st Quarter Real Estate Breakfast, put on by the City of Greenville’s Economic Development Department on March 18, 2008. The event is typically attended by 45 to 50 commercial real estate agents from Greenville and Greer. The purpose is for the City to interact with the real estate community by providing updates and relevant information to them.

My presentation will provide an overview of non-residential property sale statistics for Greenville County in addition to investment criteria for various property types. The property sale statistics were collected through research from Greenville Property Pulse – http://www.gppulse.com/ The Greenville brokers are well versed on vacancy trends and rental rate statistics in Greenville, so there is no need to even address that. What I hope happens, is that the brokers will leave with a better understanding of how the current economic crisis has affected the role of the appraiser and how general valuation methodology has changed. The more that brokers and appraisers are on the same page when analyzing investments, the better off everyone will be.

I look forward to speaking at the event on Wednesday morning. As posted a few weeks ago, banks and municipalities appear to be in great need of reliable, current real estate market information. If I can assist with providing a snapshot of the current commercial real estate market, please give me a call.

Michael Dodds, MAI, CCIM, MRICS
