Once again, we saw little movement in the 10-year yield over this past week.

Due to what I do for a living, I sit on a few commercial committees.  One of them (AREAA’s (Asian Real Estate Association of America) Silicon Valley Commercial Committee) is putting on a joint event with the Northern California CCIM Chapter.  This event is on Thursday, September 20th from 11 am to about 5 pm; and it will be held at the Capital Club in San Jose.

The panel discussions will be on Silicon Valley and International Commercial Real Estate.  The event expects to draw about 150 attendees.  For those who are working with international investors (or a desire to develop this niche),  Due to the scope of this topic, the event is expected to sell out.

The event will cover a broad spectrum of topics (including some of the legal and accounting concerns that should be kept in mind when working in this area).  In addition, you will have opportunities to network with other like-minded professionals.

To get more information on the event or to register, please click on this link.

Finally, as the attendees are often working with foreign investors seeking US real estate, then feel free to give me a call should you feel it would benefit you to gain exposure to this group through a potential sponsorship opportunity.

Investments Opportunities for Purchase with Strong Cash Flow:

Back on the January 15th update, I wrote about “Creating Residential Listings Using Commercial Opportunities.”  Each week,  I am presenting some of those investment opportunities to better educate all on what is actually available.  Note that these are all Single Tenant Net Leased properties that have listed in about the last 10 days.  In addition, I assumed a 5.25% loan with 50% down.  This is just a small sample of what is actually available.

If you assume investors in the Bay Area are getting a cash flow of 3.5%, then you can see the potential improvement with these properties above.  This approach is great for the investors desiring increased cash flow, an opportunity to get out of daily property management, and/or taking the challenges of rent control off the table.  Should you wish to discuss any of these or others, then give me a call.

That’s it for this week.  As always, feel free to give me a call with any of your strategic financing needs.
