In short, in the case of real estate investment, the goal is to put money into work today and let it increase so you have more money in the future. The profits or “returns” you make on your real estate investments should be sufficient to cover the risk you take, the taxes you pay, and the cost of owning real estate investments such as utilities, regular maintenance, and insurance. Real estate investing can really be as conceptually simple as playing monopoly when you understand the basic factors of investment, finances, and risk. To win, you buy property, avoid bankruptcy, and generate rent so you can buy even more property. However, remember that “simple” does not mean “easy”. If you make a mistake, the consequences can range from minor inconveniences to major disasters. You may even find yourself abrupt or worse.

For some in commercial real estate, data is all-encompassing and includes every bit of information available about a property. For others, data includes information about how the building works and all of the relevant systems that power a modern building. And yet for others in commercial real estate, data is everything captured around a transaction related to a specific piece of property.

How Coronavirus (COVID-19) Could Affect Commercial Real Estate Transactions

Article | February 21, 2020

The long-term effects of the coronavirus on the economy remain unknown, but we can predict some acute short-term effects on the commercial real estate market in general, and in particular on contractual relationships in this arena. There are many different implications of the force majeure concept described above for the commercial real estate world, but here we will describe just a few of them. The coronavirus outbreak has already had an impact on the supply chain for various materials required for construction. Similarly, government restrictions, such as curfews or lockdowns, could interfere with the ability of contractors to have the labor needed for construction, and there may also be delays in the issuance of construction approvals and permits. Suspension of or delays in the ability of contractors to complete construction could be covered by force majeure provisions in construction agreements.
