The overall commercial real estate market is improving with most sectors showing strength. The combination of low interest rates, better market fundamentals, and stronger business volumes for many companies, have helped contribute to this commercial real estate market improvement.

CoStar reported reported the…

  • “Demand for U.S. warehouse space moved from the recovery to the expansion phase in late 2012 as rising occupancy rates and limited new construction helped push (up) rents…” Randyl Drummer, CoStar News
  • “Tenant demand for office space ended 2012 on a strong note” with a good 4th quarter in most office sectors. Randyl Drummer, CoStar News (Follow him on Twitter)

In It Together

I am a member of a 150 year old Protestant denomination called “Covenant.” I have been learning more about our denomination’s history the last year or so, and some of its founding principles. One of its main principles is that we are all Christian brothers and sisters working together for the common cause of Christ. Our particular church location adopted the theme “in it together” this year, to emphasize the relevance and applicability of our denomination’s founding beliefs in today’s society.

I have recently realized that this motto is not just applicable for those in our denomination or for Christians in general, but for all people. It emphasizes a team spirit in accomplishing common goals such as our construction projects, and gives a positive way of looking at solving problems, when all team members realize that, when one of us has a problem, we all have a problem.

The above philosophy leads toward an all-for-one and one-for-all “three musketeers” attitude among team members, and can make a person realize that most any problem can be put into proper perspective and solved expeditiously, if one realizes how much potential support exists within the team in the form of the other team members.

I’ve expressed “in it together” to our customers and co-laborers on projects recently, and have been pleasantly surprised with how in agreement people are with the philosophy. Just talking about it builds team attitude. When problems later arise and we all work together to solve the problem, or when people abandon their own work efforts for a minute or two to help someone else who is struggling and needs a bit of help to keep their work going, it reinforces the team building in an even more demonstrative physical way.

“In it together” has become my theme verse this year in everything I do. It has comforted me, inspired and bonded together others, advanced our company’s goodwill with those we deal with in business, and will likely result in higher profits and more business. Why? When everyone works together to solve problems, problems are minimized, resulting in less cost to those who ultimately have to pay for the fix. And who wouldn’t rather work with someone more interested in the common good of solving each other’s problems than someone who points fingers and stands back to allow others to fail when they have difficulties? Not many people I know. And our customers generally have these same beliefs. They wouldn’t be very good business people if they didn’t recognize such common sense principles and their value.

In it together: Good for you, good for me, good for others. Give it a try! I guarantee you’ll like it!

The Time to Buy or Lease Commercial Real Estate in Minnesota is Now…

For anyone in the market to lease or buy commercial real estate – This is a good time to make a move.

Lease rates have softened 15-25% from the peak with most Landlords anxious to do a deal and offer concessions to satisfy the tenant’s needs. So…a good time to take advantage of these market conditions and lock in some good lease rates for your business. Mike Salmen of Transwestern referenced this opportunity in a recent article in the Real Estate Journal (, 7/12/2010) where he said – “companies are deciding to relocate or take advantage of the tenant’s market that exists.”

Likewise – sale prices for commercial buildings have also fallen in the market. So if purchasing is an option for your business…again the time is now. Many Sellers are quite motivated to make a deal by reducing their price.

The other reason that the time is now…is that interest rates for financing are at recent historical lows making payments quite affordable. SBA rates for 504 loans are in the 5’s depending on the program.

So, whether you are a tenant or a buyer – now could be a good time for you to relocate your business. Contact our team of leasing professionals to view some of the best deals in commercial real estate for sale or lease in Minnesota.
