Real Estate – What Tends to make A Property Desirable?

Should you were to ask a group of folks hunting for any new dwelling what tends to make a particular city, town or neighborhood desirable real estate, you’d likely get similar answers from each of the respondents. What do these in-demand places have in popular? Take into account the following:

Downtown Living

The closer a person lives towards the center of town, the greater the cost. An individual who wants to become inside walking distance of where the action is will pay a premium cost for the privilege.

Close to Water

If you wish to reside near a body of water, you’ll need to dig deeper into your wallet. Ocean- or lakefront properties are generally more expensive than these situated further inland. Some individuals consider of this purchase as an investment and count on the worth on the property increasing immediately.

House owners may decide to use their house near the water as a holiday get-away place only. The property may be rented out when the owners will not be using it as a solution to defray the cost of owning and preserving the home.

Golf Course Nearby

When hunting for a new household in the event you see a sign indicating that a golf course is nearby, you realize you will be taking a look at a home in a incredibly desirable neighborhood. There is a thing about being close to a golf course that instantly suggests luxurious living.

Older Property

Older houses that make it onto the list of most desirable real estate had been most likely constructed at the very least a century ago. An individual enthusiastic about among these residences just isn’t only buying the constructing and the land it sits on; they’re also purchasing the sense of history that comes with all the house.

To them, older homes have far more character than their contemporary counterparts. The craftsmanship demonstrated by builders in days gone by is just not a thing that can very easily be duplicated today.

Huge Dwelling

When asked to describe their dream dwelling, men and women tend to speak about a spacious residence with significant, airy rooms featuring high ceilings. We want to keep away from the feeling of becoming cramped or obtaining our furniture jammed into a too-small space.

Close to Amenities

Individuals wish to live close for the conveniences of modern day life. The conveniences that are vital to us vary, based on what stage of life we’re in. Individuals with young families desire to reside close to schools. Based on what activities their youngsters are involved in, they might choose to reside close to a swimming pool, skating rink, soccer field, or a dance studio.

No one desires to drive for a extended distance to get to a buying center, day care center, church or synagogue, medical professional, dentist, dance studio mckinney or veterinarian. These individuals who perform out consistently will choose to live close to a fitness center.

The most desirable real estate locations have these elements in frequent. Every single person who photographs his or her dream home will give much more weight to specific things on this want list. Which ones would be in the prime of yours?

A Historic Side to the Barbados Real Estate Market

HOLETOWN, Barbados — Though perhaps best known for luxury resorts and beachfront villas, the Caribbean island of Barbados also has a historic side to its property market.

Across the island’s palm-covered interior are the remains of former plantation estates, relics of the Caribbean’s once-thriving tobacco and sugar industries.

Such properties sell from $500,000, or one million Bajan dollars, to over $10 million, depending on size and condition. (Real estate prices in Barbados are typically listed in United States dollars.) They date from the 17th and 18th centuries and would once have included up to 80 hectares, or 200 acres, of land.

Over time, many estate houses were abandoned because of the cost and effort of maintaining them, and land was sold for agriculture and development. Now, plots average between one and 16 hectares.

Plantation homes, also known as great houses, are built from local coral stone in a simple Palladian style. They are usually constructed with a basement level below ground and two stories above ground.

Traditional external features include wraparound porches and portico entrances with stone stairways and upper-floor verandas giving views across the estate.

Inside, ground-floor rooms are generally arranged on either side of a central hall from which a main staircase ascends to a galleried top-floor landing leading to the bedrooms.

The majority of plantations had sugar mills, often close to the great house and built from stone with canvas sails. Many estates retain the original towers, also called mill walls, which are sometimes converted for further accommodation.

One such house is Mangrove Plantation, a renovated great house on 16 hectares of land with a restored sugar mill, two-bedroom guest cottage and pool area, plus panoramic coastal views.

The house was once owned by the Skeete family, one of whom was island governor in the 1800s, and is listed with local agency, Bajan Services, at $6.95 million.

Sam Mahon, director of Bajan Services, has a number of former plantations on his books. He says that though the character and space of historic properties gives them appeal, the need for extensive and regular maintenance can deter buyers in a market where property is often bought for vacation homes or buy-to-let investments.

“There are some wonderful estates for sale with fabulous views, peace and privacy, several acres of land and potential, but there are fewer buyers for this type of property,” he said. “Heritage buildings need proper upkeep and may require full-time staff for several months of the year. These houses are not the most easily maintained second homes.”

Also on his books is Lion Castle, an estate on 56 hectares that dates to 1721. The property, which has coastal views and is listed at $11 million, comprises a beautifully finished, four-bedroom great house, a separate apartment building with two self-contained units, and a three-bedroom house.

Though a number of great houses have been bought and converted into heritage attractions for tourism or boutique hotels, many can remain on the market for some time. The inland location of most plantation homes can also prove to be an obstacle to a sale, because the majority of buyers want to be on the coast.

Holders House, a 17th-century plantation house, is one of a number of historic prime properties that have been for sale for more than a year.

The seven-bedroom residence, listed with Sotheby’s International Realty for an undisclosed sum, has 2.2 hectares of grounds, two guest cottages and coastal views. It is also a high-profile hub for many upscale social events on the island.

Bulkeley Great House, listed with Altman, a local agency, at $7 million, is another 17th-century character home that has been restored and has yet to find a buyer.

The four-bedroom house has a grand entrance and wraparound terrace. Interiors have been remodeled with wooden cabinetry, polished dark-wood flooring and traditional sash windows fitted with jalousies, or slatted shutters.

Within the three hectares of grounds is a lagoon-style pool, stables and a self-contained cottage, as well as outbuildings converted into offices.

“Historic properties don’t move fast,” said Melanie King, a director of Altman. “They need to attract someone already interested in owning a historic residence.”

Owners of homes currently for sale include international financiers or entrepreneurs who don’t spend much time on the island. There is also a mix of families who inherited their homes or bought them several decades ago but who now wish to downsize.

Richard Young, director of Sotheby’s International Realty, says now is a good time to buy because prices in all sectors of the market are 20 to 30 percent lower than before the 2008 downturn. “You can get a good deal,” he said, “but the typical buyer of a heritage property falls in love with a house. The decision is more emotional.”

Though renovation projects can start at under $1 million, buyers need to factor in the costs of improving and remodeling a property, particularly one that may have been uninhabited or neglected for several decades.

For a house of a good size and condition, near the coast and with a significant amount of land and development potential, prices can exceed $6 million even for a property in need of extensive work.

One of the island’s most historic listings is Colleton Great House, the centerpiece of a plantation founded in the mid-1600s by the English nobleman Sir John Colleton.

The house, listed at $8.5 million with Altman, is 10 minutes from the west coast and has extensive views. The estate also has grounds of 2.8 hectares and is approached along a drive lined with historic and protected mahogany trees.

The property was extended and remodeled in the 1940s. Further renovations were carried out in the 1980s by the owner at the time, an Australian oil executive whose family has inherited the estate.

It has a Palladian-style entrance and there are five bedrooms, five bathrooms and several grand reception rooms. Some aspects, such as the bathrooms and kitchen, need updating.

In the grounds are two self-contained cottages and a Victorian stables, and a pool and two 17th-century military cannons. There are also the ruins of what were slave, or chattel, houses, a poignant reminder that the wealth of early Barbados society was built on the slave trade.

Colleton has a good location and enough land for extending or restructuring, though Ms. King’s fear is that such properties have too little protection.

There is minimal legislation in place to stop owners from removing or damaging the fabric or period features of historically important buildings. This, along with the neglect many houses suffer, means there is a danger that great properties could be lost.

“The best option with such a house is to restore it, to keep the heritage aspect, while sensitively adapting it for modern use,” said Ms. King. “In this way, these beautiful buildings can continue to serve a purpose as contemporary residences with character.”

Commercial real estate deals slowed in July

Real estate investors last month snapped up a bank branch on Niagara Falls Boulevard, an urgent-care facility on Transit Road, a new dollar store in Buffalo and a strip center in Depew, as Western New York’s commercial real estate market slowed in July, despite a flurry of summertime deals.

According to Erie County Clerk’s records, buyers and sellers conducted 31 transactions during the month of July in Erie County alone, totaling $23.05 million in value. That’s less than half the deal volume of a year ago, when the clerk recorded 39 deals for $53.11 million. But that period also included a single transaction for $24.5 million.

So far this year, the market has tallied $322.65 million of deal-making, down 1.9 percent from $328.82 million in the same seven-month period a year ago, but still on track for a $600 million year.

Leading the way for July, The Capra Company LLC of Santa Rosa, Calif., paid $5.478 million for a property with a KeyBank branch at 3050 Niagara Falls Blvd. in Amherst. The actual buyer is Judith Jordan, a second-generation vintner and founder and president of J Vineyards Winery, who sold her business in March to E. & J. Gallo Winery for an undisclosed price that was rumored to be as much as $90 million.

The 0.89-acre parcel and 3,900-square-foot branch, with three drive-thru lanes, is located north of the I-290, just above East Robinson Road and the Tops Plaza. Built in 2011 and owned by Steven Dubler’s Dubler Investments of New York City through 3050 Niagara Falls Holdings LLC, it was offered for sale for $5.5 million.

KeyBank has 17 years remaining on a 20-year lease, with four five-year options to extend the lease.

On the other side of town, the MASH Urgent Care facility at 4827 Transit Road in Lancaster was acquired by Roy Emmerling through 9000 Boston State Road LLC, for $2 million. Emmerling bought the 0.7-acre property from Paul L. Snyder III, acting through 4827 Transit Road LLC.

The 5,775-square-foot state-of-the-art medical office building was built in 2010 by MASH and sits as an out parcel in front of Kohl’s Department Store. MASH, which is owned by Innovative Health Care Services of America Inc., has a 15-year-lease on the site, with three 15-year options to renew. It’s one of seven MASH locations locally, with the company planning more in coming years.

In Buffalo, Theodore E. (Ted) Backus paid $1.5 million to buy a new Dollar General store at 232 Forest Ave. from developer Frederic J. LoFaso’s Fairmount Development Inc. LoFaso consolidated nine properties and demolished previous buildings on them last year to build the 6,000-square-foot store, located near Grant Street.

And Lana Strut of Clarence Center bought the Walden Design Center – a 16,729-square-foot retail strip center at 3283 Walden Ave. – and an adjacent one-story, 12,157-square-foot multi-tenant building at 5755 Transit Road from James J. Caroll, paying $1.45 million.

In other deals:

•Real estate investor Robert Nuchereno, through Sheridan Amherst LLC, bought a retail strip plaza at 3311 Sheridan Drive from Carrubba & Carr Inc., paying $1.325 million. The 20,318-square-foot plaza, built in 1962 on 1.64 acres, is already home to tropical fish and pet store Markheim Pets, Spice Bazaar and Asian restaurant Miss Hot Cafe, with two additional vacancies available. Nuchereno plans upgrades to the property, as he seeks to fill the vacancies.

•Michael and Jacqueline Zwick paid $1.15 million to buy a 24-unit multifamily apartment complex at 92 Salem St. in South Buffalo from Terrance E. Brown. The red-brick, two-story buildings total 17,928 square feet, on 0.68 acres, and were built in 1946.

•David Janca’s Daynn LLC of Orchard Park paid $1.14 million to buy the Linen World warehouse facility on 3.19 acres at 19 Cobham Drive in Orchard Park from Michael Chavanne’s Chavanne Group LLC of West Seneca. Chavanne is president of Linen World, which was founded by his parents in 1979.

Survey: California Real Estate Boom Underway

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A survey released Wednesday says a real estate boom is underway in California, fueled by rising demand from the business community and a shortage of multi-family housing.

“Commercial construction activity in California has risen to its highest level since 2001,” said the Allen Matkins/UCLA Anderson Forecast California Commercial Real Estate Survey, conducted by the Allen Matkins law firm and UCLA’s business school.

“Available financing, low cap rates, an increasingly high demand from technology, advertising, media and information companies, and a shortage of multi-family housing have sparked the industry boom,” it said, adding that the outlook for the next three years “is for continued growth in commercial property development.”

Macy's (M), Tishman Speyer Enter Real Estate Purchase-and-Sale Agreement in Brooklyn

Macy’s (NYSE: M) and Tishman Speyer announced they have signed a real estate purchase and sale agreement that will enable a re-creation of Macy’s Brooklyn store and further enliven one of New York City’s most dynamic, transit-rich neighborhoods.

Under the agreement, Macy’s will continue to own and operate the first four floors and lower level of its existing nine-story Fulton Street retail store, which will be reconfigured and remodeled. Tishman Speyer will purchase the portion of the site that Macy’s will not retain, which it will develop into approximately ten floors of distinct, first-class office space with appeal to a wide range of diverse companies. In addition, Tishman Speyer has agreed to purchase Macy’s Hoyt Street parking facility, which could be used for a future mixed-use development.

Macy’s will receive $170 million in cash from Tishman Speyer for its Brooklyn real estate assets and will receive an additional $100 million over the next three years that will be used as a contribution toward renovation of the Brooklyn Macy’s store.

“Brooklyn has emerged as one of the most dynamic, diverse and vibrant communities in America. This is a place we know well and have served with a highly successful downtown store on Fulton Street since 1865. In recent years, it has become clear that our Fulton Street store requires major improvements in order to serve the Brooklyn of today, as well as future generations of customers. We invested the time and resources necessary to fully study and understand the opportunity for making a major positive impact on Brooklyn and selecting the most capable partner in the project. We are now moving forward with a bold and exciting project with Tishman Speyer, one of the world’s most experienced and visionary developers,” said Terry J. Lundgren, Macy’s, Inc. chairman and chief executive officer.

“As developer, owner and operator of such New York City icons as Rockefeller Center and the Chrysler Building, we are thrilled at the opportunity to partner with Macy’s for our first-ever project in Brooklyn,” said Tishman Speyer Co-CEOs Jerry Speyer and Rob Speyer. “We believe this partnership will produce a transformative mixed-use development in one of the nation’s foremost destinations for today’s creative workers and new economy companies.”

Macy’s store, currently occupying 378,000 square feet of selling space on eight floors will be re-created into a more efficient store occupying 310,000 square feet on five floors (levels one through four, as well as the basement). A portion of the interior of the building will be re-constructed to level the floor elevations. New elevators and escalators will be installed. From top-to-bottom, the interior of the store will be entirely remodeled. Key architectural elements of the exterior of the building will be preserved. The Macy’s store will remain open and operating through the remodeling process.

In tandem with the redevelopment of Macy’s store, Tishman Speyer will create architecturally-distinct, headquarters-quality office space featuring 16-foot ceilings, ample outdoor spaces and easy access to 10 separate New York City subway lines, all of which will appeal to a wide range of traditional companies and new economy firms. Work is expected to begin on both the retail and office portions of the Fulton Street property in the spring of 2016, with all elements expected to be completed by the fall of 2018.

Macy’s downtown Brooklyn store, built in 1865 as Abraham and Straus, has grown and developed with the community around it.

Over the next three years, Macy’s is reinventing the Brooklyn store to create a fashion hub serving neighborhoods from Dumbo to Manhattan Beach. The renewed store will fuse Macy’s traditions with Brooklyn’s local flavor to create a modern environment of cutting-edge style and hip, urban attitude. Highlights include:

  • The main floor will feature high ceilings and dramatic rooms to house Macy’s signature businesses in cosmetics, fragrances, shoes, handbags and accessories.
  • Each floor will be leveled to create larger footprints and offer an expanded assortment of new fashion brands, including Macy’s renowned private brands.
  • Windows on the upper-levels will be uncovered to allow for more natural light.
  • Street-level entrances and display windows will be refreshed.
  • Restroom facilities will be upgraded.
  • A Starbucks with after-hours access from Fulton Street.

The Macy’s store’s workforce of about 490 associates will remain in place. The Macy’s photo studio that has operated on the upper floors of the downtown building is being relocated to refurbished space in a leased building in Long Island City.

The real estate transaction is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter. As a result, Macy’s, Inc. is expected to record a gain of approximately $250 million in its fiscal fourth quarter of 2015.

$428000: Oak Park Home Sale Brings Hope For Real-Estate Resurgence

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The highest-priced single-family home in Oak Park in several years was sold recently with a pricetag of more than $420,000.

Housing experts say the sale speaks volumes when it comes to the future of the neighborhood.

They are grillin’ and chillin’ inside the Oak Park Brewing Company on Broadway where the glass is more than half full. The dog days of summer have been good for business, and what’s happening outside the fairly new brew pub has a lot to do with that.

The winds of change in the housing market are breathing new life into an area that’s had a bad reputation. Oak Park, just a stone’s throw away from Downtown Sacramento, is feeling the glare from the shiny new face-lift that has the Downtown grid glowing.

“There’s a real vibe here–an excitement where you have a lot of young people moving into the community who want to be a part of this change that’s going on,” said Realtor Ryan Lundquist.

And some are willing to pay top dollar.

A newly constructed home on 34th Street built on what was a lot that had been vacant for 15 years. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom, 2,300 square-foot home recently sold for $10,000 above asking price—$428,000. It’s one of the highest-priced, single-family homes to sell in the area in the last six years.

Even seasoned real estate experts were surprised by the final sales price.

“I was surprised because we sell more houses in this neighborhood than anyone,” said Realtor and home builder Micah Baginski.

He has about a half-dozen projects going in Oak Park currently. He says it has the potential to be one of the most sought after areas after Downtown.

“If you look at all the surrounding areas around Downtown Sacramento—Land Park, Curtis Park, Tahoe Park, East Sacramento, McKinley Park—they’re all high-valued neighborhoods,” he said.

But while north Oak Park is seeing the bulk of the resurgence, plenty of areas still need attention.

Donald Terry with the nonprofit Neighborworks helps build affordable homes and gives businesses in the area a boost.

“We got $40,000 in grant funds to do some business improvements right here within a mile of this project,” he said.

It’s not too far from the higher-price home that’s stealing the headlines. Experts point out the affordability factor is still the focus for many. While Oak Park makes up 2 percent of all available home listings, it has about 9 percent of listings under $200,000.

So who is buying in the area?

“At this point in the cycle, it’s mostly home buyers,” Baginski said. “Investors are still finding opportunities, but they’re kind of a second wave of investors now.”
