Weichert Hosts Successful Commercial Real Estate Investment and Property Management Seminar
Posted by Andrea Adams — April 30, 2018
MORRIS PLAINS, NJ - A recent educational seminar hosted by Weichert Commercial Brokerage, Inc. and Weichert Property Management was attended by more than 80 people eager to learn more about investing in real estate and the benefits of hiring a property manager. During the session, the presidents of Weichert Commercial Brokerage and Weichert Property Management, as well as several other commercial real estate experts from Weichert, shared their insights and strategies with participants.
According to seminar attendee Kartik Papaiya, president of Troy Homes LLC, the seminar was a top-notch experience. “The speakers were engaging and touched on the essentials of commercial real estate investment and property management, and the skills and knowledge I learned will benefit my company,” he said. “I made new connections with industry peers that I otherwise wouldn’t engage with. As a business owner, the experience was a valuable investment in educating myself. I look forward to interacting and working with both Weichert Commercial Brokerage and Weichert Property Management soon.”
Some of the topics discussed in detail during the seminar included today’s best real estate investment options and the benefits of entering the current market, the often-misunderstood process for determining a fair purchase price, how to uncover properties with hidden potential, the best way to evaluate the cash flow opportunity of an investment property and the must-have services one should expect when hiring a property manager.
“We were thrilled with the tremendous turnout for our seminar, and the positive feedback and engagement we have received from attendees,” said James Sousa, president of Weichert Commercial Brokerage, Inc. “The event was successful not only in educating people about how to get started with investing in real estate, but it also showed there is a desire for more information on this topic. We plan to provide additional free learning opportunities to members of the public in the future.”
Weichert Commercial Brokerage has its own dedicated Investment Division to assist investor clients with property selection, acquisition, tenant lease negotiations and sophisticated disposition strategies. Led by Vice President Larry Conway, who spoke at the seminar, the Investment Division utilizes an extensive database of investors and properties, which helps match buyers with the best possible opportunities. After identifying the long-term goals of its individual investor, institutional investor and real estate investment trust (REIT) clients, Weichert Commercial Brokerage will recommend suitable options, including apartment, hotel, multi-use asset, office, industrial, retail and corporate headquarters properties.
In order to save time and maximize the profitability of the property they have purchased, many investors choose to turn to a professional property management company. Seminar attendees also had the benefit of hearing from Dave Hardy, president of Weichert Property Management, who provided an outline of the services his company offers, as well as the reasons why an investor might choose to engage a property management company.
