Commercial Real Estate Problems

Commercial Real Estate Problems

According to this Philly.com article, Commercial real estate facing worse days, the worst for commercial real estate is yet to come. The article cites the contracting economy and worsening financing markets as the main causes of the commercial real estate decline. My opinion is that the real problem is that all real estate prices (residential and commercial) just reached a point where they made no sense whatsoever. According to the article, "It's just a hint of the harrowing state of affairs in commercial real estate, where vacancies are on the rise across virtually all sectors, rents and property values are dropping, building owners are low on funds, and financing options are drying up. And bad as things are, they're expected to get worse - the next slide in the snowballing economic crisis that began with the collapse of the housing market and continues to claim casualties." The article quotes Sid Smith, managing partner of the regional office of Newmark Knight Frank Smith Mack, a global real estate services firm, as saying "There's a tremendous amount of pain coming." I definitely agree. I predict that we will see more and more commercial real estate foreclosures, bankruptcies and short sales.

If you are a Middle TN real estate investor, home builder or real estate developer who cannot pay the property/project mortgage payments (due to the poor economy, adverse financing conditions, slow sales, loss of investment property tenants, vacancy issues, lack of funds to complete the project, feuding business partners, etc.), have already defaulted on the mortgage, or are already in foreclosure, or owe more than the property/project is worth, please contact me to discuss your options including a short sale (a real estate short sale occurs when the sale proceeds are not sufficient to pay off all the mortgages and liens on the property/project).
