Making an effective real estate deal

Sellers of commercial real estate should avoid common errors. For example, many sellers put off spending on repairs and hope that a buyer will lower the purchase price to cover this deferred maintenance. Unfortunately, potential buyers will always estimate that the repair costs are much greater than any discount. This creates a dispute over the costs of repairs and who will pay for them.

Guidance for businesses struggling with the rent or buy question

One of the most important decisions that Florida business owners may make concerns where they decide to set up their entity. While some businesses are transactional and may be run out of owners' homes, others may require physical space where manufacturing, distribution and other operations take place. When it comes to finding a place for a business to be located, owners need to decide if they want to rent space or buy their own commercial properties.

Therefore, commercial lease agreements are common contracts that business owners deal with I the course of their operations.

Opportunity Zones program may finally be taking off in Florida

Part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the Opportunity Zones program offers tax incentives meant to encourage investors to contribute to the development of low-income areas across the country. Florida’s Opportunity Zones provide an opportunity for developers to buy and invest in properties in up and coming areas.

Zoning can impact how commercial real estate is used

Real property is often divided into two categories: residential and commercial. While residential properties are those on which homes, apartments, and other dwellings are built, commercial properties include practically everything else. A commercial property is one that is involved in commerce, whether it is manufacturing goods, selling products, or doing something else that involves running a corporation or business.
