Do Designations Matter When Choosing A Commercial Broker?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Do Designations Matter When Choosing A Commercial Broker?

CCIM_logoCommercial real estate transactions are some of the most important deals that a person or business can make. Finding the right commercial real estate can make or break a business venture. That is why people want the best professional commercial real estate broker available to guide them through the process.

But how can you separate the best professional real estate brokers from the rest?

Most other important professions have a degree or designation that any practitioner is required to have by law. Lawyers have the J.D., doctors the M.D., engineers the P.Eng and so on. Yet there are no professional designations that are required to practice as a commercial real estate broker.

CCIM: Industrial Activity Picks Up in Q2

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on CCIM: Industrial Activity Picks Up in Q2

The CCIM Institute recently conducted a survey of its members for its Quarterly Market Trends report that provides yet more evidence of a broader economic recovery. The Chicago-based group found that 54% of the members that participated in the May/June 2014 market intelligence survey reported a greater overall deal flow than during the same time frame in 2013. And 66% said they fielded more serious inquiries from potential buyers than in the second quarter of last year.

Members also had greater success with industrial deals. Seventy percent of respondents told CCIM they experienced greater industrial deal flow year-over-year. In addition, 82% received more serious inquiries from potential buyers over the same period last year. And 52% of the respondents reported higher prices for these industrial assets. Cap rates seemed more stable, with 60% reporting steady rates and 32% reporting a decline.

The multifamily sector has been hot for some time, and many have speculated that the good times will end soon. But for this survey, CCIM members ranked the sector highest for investment conditions among the five major property types. On a scale of 1 to 5, multifamily investments ranked 4.05, followed by industrial at 3.56, retail at 3.32, hospitality at 3.28 and office at 2.88.
