Market Factors Make South Florida Industrial Almost A Sure Bet

Ed Easton started his industrial real estate company, The Easton Group, in 1974. He now controls about 5M SF of space. 

“When I started in the industrial market, nobody liked industrial,” he recalled during a Bisnow webinar on South Florida’s industrial market Nov. 18. “When I first took my wife off to see what I did for a living, she said, ‘What the heck is this?’ She didn’t get it. Nobody got it.”

That’s certainly different today, in the era of e-commerce.

Factors to consider when determining how best to transfer home from parent to heirs

Her house is still in her name. She was unsure for many years whether to transfer the title to all three of her children, and she now wonders whether she should do that while still living in the home. My sister and I have no interest in keeping the home after she is gone, but my brother, who lives with her, may have an interest in buying it down the road.

I’m assuming that if we leave things alone, the estate will go into probate. Or if we discuss this with her while she is alive, she can decide whether to transfer the home to us and we can then work out the details later among each other. Is it better to transfer the title of the home to us, or to leave it as it is given her age and go through probate?

Mom has her affairs in order.

Small Business Property Insurance Info: What Are Factors That Affect the Cost of Coverage?

No matter how big or small your business property is, it's a good idea to have it insured. You never know when somebody might become injured on it, or when a thief might steal something or cause damage to it. There are also natural disasters to worry about, like fire and hail. Like any type of insurance, the internet is filled with information about small business property insurance, some of which is useless information and some very helpful.

The cost of insurance varies depending on multiple factors. Some providers will allow small business owners to include commercial property insurance in a BOP (business owner's policy), which is basically a bundled package of various types of insurance. In some instances, the cost of the package as a whole is actually less than the underlying policies if you were to purchase them separately.

Here are some of the factors that will affect … Read More
