389: Outparcels Are In High Demand
A sector of Real Estate that remains robust is outparcel developments. The demand for great locations exceeds current supply. Outparcels are attractive because they have great visibility, and they don’t compete with dozens of other tenants. Rents are typically higher, but well warranted based on traffic counts and visibility. Typical tenants are fast food, fitness chains, car washes, and gas stations. Josh Weiner, Principal of KLNB Commercial Real Estate Services, based in Northern Virginia, works with developers, investors, and owners throughout Maryland and Virginia.
388: Small Retail With High Returns
For predictable and consistent cash flow, it’s hard to beat small neighborhood retail with national credit tenants. Rents are secured by some of the country’s largest corporations, and there’s very little to do to maintain these properties. Like most asset classes, it’s still highly competitive, but there are great deals in the $1 million to $5 million range that are too big for a lot of small investors, and too small for larger institutions. Loren Ziff, a three-decade, seasoned investor with experience in most asset classes, currently specializes in smaller retail properties with great cash flow.
387: There Are Great Investment Opportunities Beyond Multifamily
The best Real Estate deals often occur when someone sees what others don’t. In any market, there are always great opportunities. In today’s market, for example, there are especially great deals in suburban office. As workers have left downtown offices, they’ve chosen to work closer to home. As a result, many quality suburban office buildings are at 90% occupancy. Ash Patel, a successful Value-Add investor, invests in office buildings, flex Industrial, strip retail, and ground up construction. Ash doubles his money on most deals in three to five years.
