The relationship of a Commercial Real Estate’s Cap Rate and a Federal Reserve’s 10-Year Treasury Rate

Commercial Real Estate’s Cap Rate is average 436 bps over 20 years reference to Federal Reserve’s 10-Year Treasury Rate.  In fact, its average from 1990 to 2000 is 450 bps and its average from 2002 to 2015 is 425 bps.

Transactions in 2015 are on course to exceed pre-recession peak levels, and most property sectors continue to see inflows of equity and disciplined underwriting by debt providers. With positive economic trends lifting gauges of property performance, commercial real estate remains a favored asset class on a risk-adjusted basis.

10YR Treasury Rate and CRE CAP

Another words, the sophisticate and savvy CRE’s investor are studying and analyzing carefully its Federal Reserve’s 10-Year Treasury Rate in order to make an informed decision on his next acquisition.  It would help reduce his risk significantly.

Commercial property sectors continue to perform well amid this extended period of low interest rates and the Federal Reserve’s decision will not disrupt property performance

  • The Federal Reserve opted Thursday 9/17/15 to maintain its benchmark lending rate at or near zero percent. While acknowledging that the U.S. labor market continues to improve, the central bank also heeded softer conditions in foreign economies in reaching its decision to defer the first hike in the Federal Funds rate in approximately nine years. Fed Chair Janet Yellen and voting members of the policy committee will proceed cautiously, monitoring for contagion risks from other countries that could adversely affect U.S. economic performance.
  • The Fed’s next opportunity to take up the rate hike question comes at its meeting next month, but it may wait until December to act. Until the next meeting, the Fed will scrutinize incoming data on economic momentum, inflation trends, and international volatility. Mortgage spreads widened during the summer in anticipation of a rate increase, and little appreciable effect on spreads is likely to occur in the near term.
  • The central bank’s decision to hold will likely spark a new round of questions about the strength of the U.S. economy in spite of relatively strong underlying fundamentals. Through August, the labor market had added an average of 212,000 jobs per month, an amount less than the pace set in 2014 but sufficient to support a forecast of 2.7 million positions this year. Factors weighing on the U.S. economy, however, include soft exports stemming from the strong U.S. dollar and anemic inflation principally related to low gas prices. Core inflation, which strips out volatile food and energy, rose only 1.8 percent year over year, below the Fed’s target threshold of 2.0 percent.
  • Commercial property sectors continue to perform well amid this extended period of low interest rates and the Federal Reserve’s decision will not disrupt property performance. With job growth generating new commercial space demand that dramatically outpaces construction levels, vacancy in the primary property segments remains on track to decline this year and support additional rent gains. Apartment construction has ramped up, but favorable demographic trends and challenging conditions for first-time homebuyers will continue to sustain extremely low vacancy in the multifamily sector.
  • Low-interest rates, steady performance gains, and competitive yields are supporting investment in a wide array of commercial properties. Transactions in 2015 are on course to exceed pre-recession peak levels, and most property sectors continue to see inflows of equity and disciplined underwriting by debt providers. With positive economic trends lifting gauges of property performance, commercial real estate remains a favored asset class on a risk-adjusted basis.

Net Lease’s Sale-leaseback and Built-to-Suit Strategy

The growing business who owns real estate can raise an inexpensive working capital and/or debt reduction with Net Lease’s Sale-leaseback and Built-to-Suit Strategy.

DAJK GROUP NNN

Sale-Leaseback Strategy

Sale-leaseback strategy is a form of financing in which a company sells its real estate for cash and simultaneously signs a long-term lease with the buyer. Sale-leaseback transactions provide the lessee company with a source of capital that is an alternative to other financing sources such as corporate borrowing, mortgaging real property or selling shares of common stock.

A Seller/Tenant is able to convert the value of real estate assets into working capital it can use to:

  • Pay-down debt
  • Fund acquisitions
  • Reinvest in the core competencies of its business

Build-to-Suit Strategy

Through build-to-suit strategy, Investor/Lender (“Investor”) provides a growing company with the funding for the expansion of an existing facility or the construction of a new facility in a different location.  Investor can source, facilitate, arrange, structure and close the build-to-suit transaction.

  • Expanding existing facilities/constructing new facilities
  • Debt reductions
  • Mergers & acquisitions
  • Leveraged/management buyouts

  • Acquiring addition facilities, technology, and equipment to grow business

It is a publicly traded company with a market capitalization of approximately $15 billion and is 75% owned by German automotive group Volkswagen AG.

5 Vital Aspects You Must Know for Success in Small Business

Biz 5 Vital things

5 vital aspects you must know for success in small business

  1. Track your return on investment (“ROI”).
  2. Monitor cash flow statement frequently
  3. Leverage with talent human resource
  4. Leverage social media
  5. Develop and have an emergency plan in place

First-time small business owners must master these 5 indispensable aspects because they are vital business factors for every business owners.

Track your return on investment (“ROI”)

Business owner must keep track on:

  • How much you invest?
  • What you invest your money on?
  • What you get in return for every dollar you invest?

This ROI tracking would help the business owner easier to decide where to invest and allocate your money in the future during your annual budget analysis review.

Monitor cash flow statement frequently

Diligently and thoroughly monitor cash flow statement.  Business owner should only spend from the revenue you derive from the sale of your products or services.

Small business must learn how to control and ensure you have sufficient cash to cover operating expenses for at least 90 days.  You have to anticipate and manage the time-lag between completing a project and receive payment.

For your small business, the cash flow statement may be the most important financial statement you organize. It traces the flow of funds (or working capital) into and out of your business during an accounting period.

For a small business, a cash flow statement should probably be prepared as frequently as possible. This means either monthly or quarterly. An annual statement is a must for any business.

In short, a cash flow statement can be used to assess the timing, amount and predictability of future cash flows and it can be used as the basis for budgeting. You can use a cash flow statement to answer the questions, “Where did the money come from?” “Where did it go?”.

Leverage with talent human resource

Small business must know what you look for and what to shun when recruit a new talent human resource.  Please note your human resource is also a key area of ROI.  Hiring an unfit employee can be a catastrophic impact on a small business.  You must follow all required steps and take time to make your recruitment decision.

In other hand, business owner needs to make genuine attempt to correct the unfit employee within a set period of time.  If he can not show any improvement or progress, you need to let him go swiftly and gracefully.

Leverage social media

such as Facebook, Linkedin, Google+, Pinterest and other popular sites.  Social media is where your prospective clients and customers often hangout.  Business owner’s profile must be crafted relevant to your audience and willing to participate in online discussions in your industry related chats.

Emergency Plan in place

Business owner should be prepared for a natural disaster which could either completely discontinue or disrupt your business operation.  Your emergency plan should be include at the very least an alternate lines of communications with clients in order to preserve the integrity of your service.  In addition, you also maintain, upgrade and updated IT equipment.

More effectively, you need to identify your critical business functions— what resources and personnel will you need to restore or reproduce these functions during a recovery? Assign disaster response duties to your employees.  In addition, business owner needs to identify critical suppliers—Identify suppliers, providers, shippers, resources, and other businesses you typically interact with and need to keep your business operating. Develop professional relationships with backup vendors, in case your normal vendor isn’t available due to the emergency.

In short, the more you plan in advance for potential disaster, the quicker you recover and keep your valued and core client intact.

In conclusion, your chance for building a successful small business requires 1) Track your return on investment, 2) Monitor cash flow statement frequently, 3) Leverage with talent human resource, 4) Leverage social media and 5) Develop and have an emergency plan in place.

A Great business consultant must see a white space around the black dot…

Biz Consultant

A business consultant’s job is to consult. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s that simple. There’s no magic formula or secret that makes one consultant more successful than another one.

But what separates a good business consultant from a great business consultant is a passion, drive for excellence and creativity. And–oh yes–a great business consultant should be knowledgeable about the subject he or she is consulting in. That does make a difference.

Creativity is not only helps a Great business consultant can “see” things surrounding of his client’s issue,  but it also provides right guidance and assists with precise and correct solution.  For illustration, place a small black dot on a blank piece of fresh paper represents your client’s issue. It could be involved human resources, account receivable, account payable, expansion funds, equipment, budgeting, personnel, or even community relations. It is your client’s black dot.

Unfortunately majority of good business consultants will see ONLY the black dot.  Their eyes will focus and become fixated on it.  As a great business consultant, you must see all the white space around the black dot.  Fill the white space with all the positive recommendations and solutions. Start to make notes.  Keep thinking and writing.  A great business consultant is constantly searching for right solutions to solve his client’s issue.

Within no time the white space will fade, and the dot will become unnoticeable. Your client’s issue will become workable. Furthermore, involve team members or partner with your client’s black dot. A fresh set of eyes may be all you need to make the impossible, possible. By taking on your client’s issue in pieces and parts, you can develop strategies to chip away at it. In the end, the seemingly insurmountable black dot no longer exists―you have made progress. As a great business consultant you have found ways to cope with and improve your client’s situation.

Currencies
 
The USD is down sharply against both the major and emerging market currencies. There is a very strong correlation between the direction of German 10-year interest rates and euro over the past weeks; European currencies are all higher led by Norway which has been helped by the surging oil prices. Emerging market currencies are higher also helped by stronger commodity prices and somewhat better global equities. Colombia is the top performer today up by 1.38% with only India slightly weaker on the session.

Building a Finance Plan Geared to Growth

 BuildingFinancePlan 30pcOFF

I would like to share with you our book reviewer from Ms. P. Fisher, “Garlic to a vampire“.

I recently read Daniel Nguyen’s Building a Finance Plan Geared to Growth, and have decided to keep this as my small business guidebook to finance management.  I am not an expert, hardly even a novice, when it comes to managing my business.  As a “creative” type, financial planning is like garlic to a vampire.  And yet, financial planning is essential to running a successful business.  I believe that part of my resistance comes from lack of understanding the definitions and how to do things such as create financial statements like profit and loss, cash flow, etc.  When we don’t understand how something works it becomes twice the job and, in my case, gets put on the bottom of the “To Do” pile.  What I really like about this guidebook on how to build a financial plan is that Mr. Nguyen explains what all of these terms mean. He gives us not just a textbook definition, but also shows HOW they work in relation to the overall picture of getting a small business loan, for example. He then shows a sample of what that financial statement should look like.  THIS I can understand!  He also tells the reader what to ask for –and what NOT to ask for.  There is information on establishing credit well in advance of going for a loan, things that I can do now to prepare for my possible or projected business needs in the future. He includes guideposts of ways to evaluate the progress and effectiveness of my current business needs, and then how to assess my possible future needs. Then, for when I am ready to go for a loan, I like the True-False test that he includes in the text.  This test allows me, as the business owner, to self-score how prepared I am to go meet with the banker.  This book is a wealth of good advice, resources and tools that I can use in understanding and applying good financial practices in my business.

I feel that if I follow the outline of this book that I could meet with a bank lender and not appear to be an idiot.  Mr. Nguyen has thought of not only the standard things that I will need to bring and think about beforehand, but also other possibilities that a lender might want to know.  For example, he writes that I, as a business owner, should have not one, but two possible repayment plans, to reassure the lender that I am a good risk. This is good, easy-to-understand information- he gets a score of “10” from me on a practical help scale.
