LEASE ADVISORY, EXTENSIONS & RENEWAL
Since 2005, Metro Investment Properties has specialized in representing the owners of commercial properties. We view ourselves more as advisors than we do as parties of individual deals. At no charge, we will gladly review your current lease or potential renewal with an existing tenant to better understand whether or not the proposed pricing and terms are in line with the marketplace. In an escalating price environment tenants often prefer to extend leases far prior to lease expiration in order to control costs after lease expiration. Owners also enjoy the security of locking in their tenant for additional years while simultaneously marking their current tenants’ leases to market. Lease extensions are often the perfect solution for both owners and tenants looking to lock in for the long term.
DEVELOPMENT PARCEL SALES & FEASIBILITY ANALYSIS
Metro Investment Properties experts in developing financial models to understand the true value of urban infill development parcels. We have consulted local developers on hundreds of millions of dollars in potential acquisitions via top-down analysis. We consult with our various construction partners and 3rd party vendors to understand Outsales, hard costs, and soft costs to derive the maximum amount a buyer can pay for land. We often find that developers pay 15-30% less than market value simply because owners want to save on a 6% commission. If you are thinking of selling your asset, please reach out to us for a free analysis in order to completely understand the TRUE VALUE of your property.
