Now may be a worthwhile time to invest in REITs

Investors in Missouri and throughout the country may be interested in putting their money into single-family rental REITS. This is because they have access to more funding and are even engaged in new home building to create additional properties to rent. According to the National Rental Home Council, demand for rental homes should continue to grow in 2018. In 2018, American Homes 4 Rent plans to spend up to $600 million to build new rental homes.

Long-term focus eases ups and downs of commercial real estate

The commercial real estate market in Missouri and nationwide has produced double-digit returns for the last two decades. Although Colliers International's 2018 Outlook has declared that 2017 was the peak for the commercial property market, investors could still expect moderate returns in the coming years. By keeping an eye on the long term, investors could shield themselves from missteps during market fluctuations.

Merchants must focus on emerging trends to stay ahead

Missouri retail merchants know a major key to profitability is staying on top of trends and anticipating the next big thing. With consumers getting more needs met through the use of technology and concentration of resources, the plight of retail can seem dark, but there is hope for merchants who maintain focus and stay ahead of the curve regarding the evolving needs of consumers.

Lack of good investment opportunities stagnating CRE market

Commercial real estate investors in Missouri might be encountering the same barriers that have put downward pressure on property prices nationwide. The last three quarters of 2017 produced small but consistent declines in prices. For January 2018, commercial properties demanded prices 0.3 percent lower than the previous month. Although large investors hold billions of dollars, they are encountering trouble finding properties to buy with a good potential to earn a profit.

Industrial space proving to be a major asset in ecommerce

As the consumer retail business continues to shift toward e-commerce in greater numbers, Colorado businesses may find themselves shuffling to keep up with the increased demands for adequate storage solutions for their inventory. As major players in the online retailing business continue to expand their products and services, other retailers that were traditionally brick-and-mortar businesses have also followed suit by offering their merchandise to consumers online.

Some commercial real estate investors considering selling

Ccommercial real estate can be a great way to develop a Missouri investor's portfolio and continue to bring in consistent income. As job growth continues on an upswing along with the stock market, the value of commercial properties can continue to grow as can the income associated with them. However, despite the positive atmosphere associated with commercial real estate, sales are also on the rise among investors.

More taking twofold approach in property investment

Investors in Missouri know that managing risk through diversification is a solid way to build wealth. A new trend has seen individual investors putting money into multifamily buildings and commercial property, as large investment firms have long done. This move allows these smaller investors to better ride out volatility found in the more common individual vehicles of stocks and bonds while simultaneously diversifying their portfolios. Commercial real estate remains an important component of many investment plans, and now rental properties taking advantage of zoning laws for multifamily land use have grown in popularity for individual investors.

Projected commercial real estate trends in 2018

Real estate investors in Kansas City, Missouri, may be able to expect positive growth in the upcoming year. Across the board, real estate markets are more stable than they were a few years ago. Investors may be concerned about how changing trends could affect real estate prices in the near future.

Financial techology and commercial developers

In Missouri, commercial real estate developers understand the complicated process that often happens when they try to secure funding for their planned developments. Traditional commercial real estate lenders may go through an investigative process that can take months in order to make their decisions. If they decide to deny the applications, then the developers must find new lenders and go through the process again.

Why reviewing the general conditions of a contract is important

It is common for businesses to sign contracts in Missouri without paying much attention to the general conditions that are contained in the fine print. It is important for businesses to take the time to review the general conditions that are contained in the contracts before they sign them. There are several important provisions that may be contained in the general conditions and that might lead to disputes and problems.

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.
