Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Here are three things you should be looking for in your new office people office writing 300x191 3 Things to Look for in Office Space

Private Space for employees to work.

The growing trend for corporate America is to design an open concept office to improve the communication between employees and team members. While this has been great for many people, recent trends have been to include a place where employees can go to focus and get away from the noisy distractions that can come with an open concept office. By having room for both of these to occur, you will be able to help increase the creativity of your teams as well as giving employees the ability to get their work done when they need to focus on a specific task.
Fun, Creative Space
The office space you choose can greatly change the culture and dynamic of your company. Many companies are including gyms and other facilities on site for their employees to use and enjoy. By having a common place where both the CEO and the newest member of the customer service team can go and enjoy together, this will help you to make all employees feel a part of the company and enjoy working with their co-workers.
Functionality for Your Specific Needs
Above all, you want a space that will work for what you need it to do. If you are a growing company, you will want a bigger space to allow you to grow into without having to move several times. If you hold a lot of meetings, you need to have space to do so and still allow those who aren’t involved to continue to work without getting distracted. Look for something that will be functional for your specific needs as a company.

Scraping the Sky

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

When you’re a little kid, everything looks big. As you grow, things that once appeared big become smaller. The tree you used to rope swing off of doesn’t appear so daunting and that roller coaster ride you were afraid of is now child’s play. However, some objects in this world are big no matter what age you are. Let’s take a look at some of the colossal buildings that grace the tip tops of skylines across the world.

An Attractive Workspace

Tuesday, January 19th, 2016

Setting up for work every morning and doing the same thing day after day can be a drag. Afterall, not all of us have a Michael Scott at the office to help keep us entertained during the day.

Whether you already have a Michael Scott in your office or not, here are some fun tips to help make the office a more enjoyable place to be:

1. Windows

Working outdoors with laptop can be a pain because of sun glare. Bring the outdoors to your office by substituting more windows for walls. Nature is calming and will help your employees stay motivated by having a stimulating backdrop to their workspace.

2. Downtime

When your employees take breaks, make sure to have a space where employees can really let go and relax. The more they can truly let go and relax during their lunch and breaks, the more effective and functional they’ll be at work later that day. Take Google, for example, they have legos, beanbags, video games, and even slides!

3. Decorations

Filling your workspace with pictures, art, and fun objects can help add unique flavor and personality to any workspace. The best part is that each employee and express themselves creatively in their own way. You could take this a step further by doing a community mural in the office with different ideas from employees.

4. Plants

Since you’ve already got more windows in your workplace, why not bring what you can of nature to the indoors? A bit of extra oxygen never hurt anyone. Not to mention that they looks good too and add a sort of elegance and feeling to your office.

5. Color

Most offices have a lot of one color: white. Lighten up the work place with colors that help energize the mind and encourage productivity. Bright colors that aren’t overbearing can add a lot to a workspace. Blue elicits security and with the combination of orange can encourage creativity. Try mixing things up every few months by shifting pictures and paintings to difference walls.

Making fun changes to the office workspace throughout the year can yield many benefits. Your employees will likely have a better attitude at work and find more motivation to work hard. As you consider these options above, why not think of a couple of your own fun ideas to implement in your own personal workspace today. The results may be enlightening.

The Importance of the Internet and Commercial Real Estate

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

A study performed by Loopnet and Google state that 78 percent of American adults are searching online platforms when they are buying a product. Additionally, 61 percent of adult internet users bank online, 96 percent of the baby boomers are using online job searches to find work, and 90 percent of those buying homes are searching online during the process of buying.

Commercial Real Estate isn’t any different. The decision makers who are charged with finding a location for their business are typically extremely busy, and their time is very valuable. If you were looking to find an office space 20 years ago, that consisted of having landline conversations with your broker, having him drive round to preview all of the locations, trusting the listing broker’s description of the space as it was difficult to review pictures (if they even had any), mail you lease copies to review, mail them to your attorney to review, he emails them back to you…. You get the picture.

The amount of time to complete a transaction is drastically cut down due to relevant technology. Today, a tenant should be able to view a property, see pictures/videos, receive demographic information, review and edit leases, all within a day or two. That isn’t typical, but the ability is there. The more prepared your broker is and the more technology he knows how to use, the more money you can make as a landlord.

Commercial Mortgage Delinquencies Continue Their Downward Trend

Monday, September 14th, 2015

The delinquency rates for commercial mortgages continue to decline, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. This a national trend and it is no different in the St. George Commercial Real Estate Market. Rewinding back a few years, a large portion of the available properties for sale were either short sales, or bank owned assets. There were more properties than buyers, and it greatly affected the prices of both for sale and for lease assets. Fast forward to September, 2015, and we are seeing positive trends for landlords/sellers. The market continues to improve, which means ask prices for both sales and leases continue to rise steadily. Consequently, there are much fewer commercial delinquencies.

Jamie Woodwell of Commercial Real Estate Research said, “Commercial and multifamily mortgage delinquency rates were down broadly in the second quarter, with highlights including the lowest 90+day delinquency rate on bank-held multifamily loans since the series began in 1993.”

We are seeing positive trends in the St. George Commercial Real Estate Market, which include lower vacancy rates, higher lease rates, longer lease terms, and less delinquency.
