Sources of Market Intelligence for Commercial Real Estate Brokers

In commercial real estate brokerage you need high quality market information to produce the right recommendations for your clients and prospects. Where you get that information from and its accuracy will be very important. Can you trust your sources? Do you know that the information is accurate and not based on ‘hearsay’?During an average year in property investment, all of the following factors will change quite a few times:
The levels of inbound enquiry for property purchasing
Tenant enquiries for new premises
Rent and price ranges
The supply and demand for local quality property
Negotiation factors in any contract or lease
Government policies impacting property
Local market conditions
Activities and sentiment from the local business community
Transport and other local demographic issues
Competing properties
Time on market
Seasonal selling cycles

A good real estate agent or broker has to stay on top of these issues. To do that you must capture and share the right market information with key people. Quality information from the market will help you win better listings for sale or for lease.So let’s look at where you can get accurate market knowledge and information that you can use. Try some of these ideas:
I would start at the local planning office. Just about every sale or lease will be impacted by shifts in property planning activity, new projects, and future supply of quality property. Each month visit the planning office to see what properties are being considered for change or new development. They will have an impact on price, rents, and incentives. They will also impact methods of sale or lease.
Monitor the completed sales and leasing activity. You can get that information from industry sale reports and fellow agents. On that basis it pays to be on ‘positive talking terms’ with some of your professional competitors. Choose some good agents to share information with.
Watch the listings coming on to the market. Asking prices and rents will be visible in the internet advertising.
Understand the methods of sale or lease that work for the different property types. The improvements in a property will impact the target market and your inspection strategies.
Inbound enquiries to your office from buyers and tenants will have trends and factors that you can monitor. To lift the levels of inbound enquiry you can focus on ‘vendor paid marketing’ on all of your quality properties. Practice your presentations and listing pitches to get those funds.
Professional Property Valuer’s and Appraisers will have plenty of industry information for you to tap into; they will only do that if you share information with them.
Some very active quality clients will have information for you to consider from recent deals and property promotions.

So the message here is that you can ask questions of the right people to get on top of the trends of prices and rents in the local property market. Get to know the right people and share information ‘both ways’.

Vitamin Deficiency And Acne

In today’s fast food society, it is no wonder that diet is such an extreme issue. It is almost impossible for anybody to maintain a healthy diet now-a-days. Health organizations estimate that only 10-20% even consume the recommended amounts of the most important vitamins and minerals on a daily basis. This is a startling low number and simply results from the fact that a healthy diet is very hard to maintain.

In order to be able to maintain a healthy body and in order to be able to have clear, healthy, acne free skin, it is important to consume the recommended amount of many crucial vitamins and minerals on a daily basis. However, diet alone often falls short of this. Fast foods don’t contain many vitamins and minerals in the first place, people usually don’t have time to try and prepare full, healthy, rounded meals, and even the foods purchased in stores now have many of their vitamins and minerals taken out of them in order to help them stay fresh longer.

For these reasons, it is often necessary to look elsewhere in order to get the right amounts of vitamins and minerals each day. Foods and diet will almost always still lead to some short of deficiency, no matter how careful one tries to be, and therefore it become necessary often times to look to supplements in order to fill the gap. Supplements can be extremely helpful in ensuring the body receives the vitamins and minerals it needs to be healthy.

Supplements are not a bad thing and are not some sort of “short cut.” Many people think they are cheating themselves by taking a vitamin supplement but this simply isn’t so. Most one-a-day vitamin supplements are extremely useful for the simple fact that they will help to provide the body with the essential vitamins and minerals it needs. People also worry about then consuming too much of certain vitamins and minerals due to the combination of the supplement and eating. Again, this is almost never a problem since the supplements only provide the minimum recommended amounts each day, meaning that there is plenty of ceiling room left above that.

When foods and dieting simply aren’t cutting it, it is good to look for a vitamin supplement. Your body needs the vitamins and minerals and to deprive it of them would be extremely unhealthy.
