Asset-based loans for small businesses

In California, almost every business will need access to funding in order to grow at some point.

Passive investment in real estate brings rewards

Investors in California may be interested in exploring the world of commercial real estate for a passive, successful income stream.

For investors who want to play a passive role in a real estate project, a few tips can help them to select ideal investments.

The aftermath of Toys 'R' Us bankruptcy

In September 2017, Toys 'R' Us filed for bankruptcy, and it recently announced that all stores in the United States will be closing.

Whether a former Toys 'R' Us store is used for a new purpose going forward depends on many factors.

Commercial real estate can be a stable investment choice

Some California investors in commercial real estate have concerns about falling values. Over two decades, returns on investments in the sector skyrocketed. In 2016, however, the returns fell below the 10.1 percent average for the first time since the financial crisis of 2008.

With transactions totaling $22.9 billion in 2017, Los Angeles surpassed New York City in world rankings and was second only to London.

Tax cuts create optimism in commercial real estate world

The results of a biannual survey of commercial real estate executives in California have started the year on an optimistic note.

Trends that will influence retail going foward

eCommerce has had a significant impact on the retail sector in recent years. However, companies in California and around the country will need to take a look at other factors to help them meet customer needs today and into the future. One factor that must be taken into account is the fact that roughly 1 million people per week are moving into cities. This trend is happening throughout the world, and it may result in an increase in spending.

Commercial real estate can be an excellent investment

California residents who are looking to develop their portfolio and enter a new, lucrative arena of business may be considering investing in property. While residential real estate can be the first form of property investment that comes to mind, whether in the form of buying and re-selling homes or through becoming a residential landlord, commercial properties can be an excellent investment for many. Commercial buildings can bring a different kind of business that many investors prefer for its profitability and stability.

Office rents and vacancies both on the rise in Los Angeles

Office ents in Los Angeles increased 9.3 percent in the final quarter of 2017 compared to the same time period in 2016. That translated to an increase of $3.29 per square foot despite the fact that vacancies were also on the rise in that market. Vacancy rates were at 15.1 percent in 2017 compared to 14 percent in 2016. This was partially attributed to new construction creating more space for lease.

Investing in commercial real estate

It may also mean that California residents have to be aware of legal issues related to owning and leasing property.

Those who are new to real estate investing should consider several factors related to a property before investing in it.
