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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
