What Are You Looking For In Great Commercial Real Estate? Some General Advice

Commercial property is divided into three different use categories: offices, retail and industrial. Offices tend to be the lowest yielding for commercial real estate investors. This is because office tenants tend to stay in their premises longer than retail or industrial tenants. Yields on industrial property tend to be a little more volatile, thanks to the ups and downs in the sector. And retail tenants often don't stay for as long as you'd like.
Knowing when to buy, and when not to buy, commercial real estate can be difficult. So let's have a look at some of the factors that filter into making a great deal.
Build Quality
When looking for a great office space, be aware of build quality. Office tenants often want aesthetically pleasing premises. They want places that broadcast their desired company image. As such, look for quality panelling, like those made by Centria Panels. Usually, high-quality panels have the dual purpose of retaining heat and making the building more robust.
Appearance
When choosing an office to buy, ensure that the offices have ample access to natural light. As businesses become more aware of the importance of a healthy workforce, they are starting to demand that offices let in sunlight.
It's also important for offices to have a quality entrance. That's because businesses themselves value making good first impressions. When a client enters their office, they want to wow them with the magnificence of their entrance. That's why it's so important to keep an eye open for any offices that naturally lend themselves to making a great first impression.
Location
For retail location is paramount. Yes, appearance is important as well, but retailers will usually transform premises using their own design scheme. Fundamentally, what they're looking for is the right amount of space in the right location.
A great retail space will be in an existing shopping district. Local shopping is on the decline at the moment, so if you are looking to buy commercial real estate off the beaten track, make sure you pay a lower price.
If you're buying a retail unit in a shopping centre, remember that the value of that unit should be based on its proximity to the anchor tenant. The anchor tenant is the tenant in the shopping centre that occupies the most space. Buying a unit as close as you can to the anchor tenant ensures that you'll be getting the most footfall possible.
Although the location is not as important for offices as it is for retail, offices have still traditionally clustered. Great office real estate should be right next to other offices. That's because office-based businesses often do business with other office-based businesses. It's why you often see law firms all clustered together right in the middle of town.
Layout
When buying industrial property, pay considerable attention to the layout. Good industrial properties have excellent access to transport links and large spaces to allow vehicles to turn.
And lastly, there should be a separate space for amenities like a toilet and kitchen.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
