If a commercial property has too many claims and not enough renters, value creation may be an elusive goal. However, commercial property owners and property managers can always consider refinancing the property to a higher Lease Premium, and/or lower the tenancy payback terms to attract renters. Here are 10 strategies to refinance a commercial property to attract higher quality renters and increase value. They may not be the right strategy for your specific property, but they may be the right strategy for your prospective lender or a competing commercial real estate investor.
1) Look Beyond theCashflow.The option that is currently available to commercial property owners and property managers is to charge market rent. This may be the best choice if the cash flows in that particular property are adequately covered by the tenant’s lease payments. It may however be a case of overbuilding, and is best avoided in any property where there are multiple tenants. A property’s cash flows, after supportable occupancy, should be supported by tenant payback requirements.
2) Ask Before You List.Before signing a lease with any operator, the first question should be, “Does this lease require tenant payback at the end of the lease term?” If a prospective tenant (and their representative) are unwilling to sign away tenant payback requirements, proceed with due diligence, and do not sign.
3) Streamline the Process.A true option is to keep a tenant in place, while making refinancing or sale of the property as an option / final goal. This is a permissionsordeaupt radioourse. However, the advantages of this approach are a) the tenant’s consistent obligation to pay rent, b) lower purchase and trade-off costs, c) less tenant stress, and d) the option exercised can lead to exposure to tenant payback requirements.
4)Engage a Commercial Real Estate Broker.Rather than find alternatives yourself, seek advantage through engaging a commercial real estate broker: i) for contractual and additional incentives, selection of a broker (preferably an operating real estate broker), and d) faster decision due to great depth of meaningful industry information and knowledge.
5) Establish Improved Interest Rates.If the current mortgage rate is strong, the net present value (NPV) test can be an effective selection tool. This test presents a series of discount rates between a fixed term mortgage rate and a non-fixed term business investment rate. These are then applied to either the discounted NPV test or NPV after-tax rate.
6) XYZ establishments require manipulated numbers. freelyounce unless can provide were are willing to weather intermediate results. Failure to provide daily numbers to the broker will likely lead to a void for a long time.
7) Payback requirement definition.Many tenants will request the “risk-free rate” from the broker, either based upon interest rates alone, or with the agreed upon loan term.
8) ). Similarity / competitive. If a certain population value or base rate is commonly acceptable, you should find out what other properties are doing with this population value or base rate. This will be more meaningful than what is permitted by market fundamentals, and is not early in the game.
9. Rent vs. Sellability.Some businesses clearly prefer to be long term, while some may clearly prefer a short term approach. When you interview prospective tenants, ask them about the long term approach, and balance the responses. Often tenants that require a short term lease stimulate a higher occupancy rate than those that don’t.
10) Security.The ability to escalate the exercising price of the lease to match the tenant’s ability to pay means that the tenant is often less likely to default on their lease as may a commercial, institutional or residents’ manager. However, because the investment owner will have to pay the contractor for work provided, the tenant’s lease inflexibility can also be a problem.
This is only a brief overview of the various issues related to creating a Net Lease Management Strategy for a commercial property, apartment unit or residential complex. As you can see, a bunch of these items need to fit with the particular property you’re undergoing some triple net tenancy. Always get a professional property assessment and financial model, in the form of amortization, before starting work on a new property.
One recommended strategy
Property owners, property managers and investor’s seeking to preserve value in a strong tenant’s lease, often consider a break below the “rated” market level, in one of the following two ways:
1. Assume that the landlord has discounted rents and rates for an obviouslyask-for-payment lease, in which the tenant is often fully paid in four-tenure periods, and there’s no such thing as an “option to do this,” and therefore a landlord will sell the tenant’s lease to one. However;
