Relaxed regulations and technology spur CRE investments

Technology has transformed commercial real estate in Missouri and around the country. Previously, commercial real estate owners and developers were limited in how they could work to attract investors because of regulations and a long, convoluted process. With the relaxation of the laws and the availability of marketing properties in order to attract investors over the internet, the process is much faster and easier today.

Banks backing away from commercial proeprty loans

Real estate developers in Missouri and around the country are turning to private equity firms, institutional lenders and foreign banks more often in 2016 as both small and large domestic banks take a more cautious approach to commercial property loans. Federal watchdogs have strong memories of the 2008 financial crisis, and both the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation have issued strongly worded warnings in recent months about lax underwriting standards in the commercial property sector.

How global trends affect commercial real estate

Commercial real estate investors in Missouri might consider looking to economic and political trends on a global and national scale to gauge the health of the commercial real estate market. For example, the United States is an attractive market for foreign investors because of widespread instability elsewhere. In the United Kingdom, the uncertainty raised by Brexit has caused investors who might have bought real estate there to look toward the U.S. as well. Furthermore, the commercial real estate market in the U.S. is renowned for transparency and high yields.

Our condo association was faced with monumental construction issues thanks to the original developer of our complex. We were cash poor and in no position to get legal representation without a contingency fee arrangement. Luckily for us, Scott Long and Burke Robinson were willing to take us on as clients. Their work ethic, professionalism and knowledge of condominium construction served our association very well. Any association would be well served in hiring these gentlemen to represent them.
