Introduction and overview
Introduction and Overview

  • Commercial brokers on average have far more training than residential brokers and tend to earn far higher earnings

  • Good commercial agents will have a great deal of general business knowledge and tend to specialize by property type within a given market region

  • Specializations may include office, retail, multifamily, industrial, agricultural or even recreational property

“Real Estate Principles for the New Economy”: Norman G. Miller and David M. Geltner


The building block of investment value begins with the tenant and lease
The Building Block of Investment Value Begins With the Tenant and Lease

  • While in residential brokerage the qualitative factors may dominate value, but within the commercial brokerage industry it is the financial terms that dominate views on value

  • The value of a building is primarily the summed value of the net productivity of leased space, as now constrained by lease contracts and as affected by operating expenses, market trends and longer term prospects

“Real Estate Principles for the New Economy”: Norman G. Miller and David M. Geltner


Investment value contd
Investment Value (Contd.) Tenant and Lease

  • LPV = Lease Present Value

  • For the landlord, the appropriate discount rate, k, is based on the potential yield for similar risk investments in the capital market and for a similar term or time horizon

  • Thus, k could be derived from the credit worthiness of the tenant as revealed through the tenants borrowing rate

  • In any scenario k is derived from opportunities in the market adjusted for risk and timing

Types of lease analysis
Types of Lease Analysis Tenant and Lease

The net present value of the lease for the entire period of the lease

The effective rent or lease costs per period on a level basis

The total dollar outflow or to be received

The net present value of the lease per square foot

The effective level rent payment or receipt per square foot.

Computing the "Effective Rent" of a Lease Tenant and Lease

  • Simply comparing the initial or average base rent charged in two leases could be very misleading

  • The effective rent is a way of expressing the net present value of the rental payments of the lease in an equivalent annual level payment (or "annuity") form

  • The "effective rent" controls to some extent for factors such as expenses and different lease duration, and is therefore a measure that allows different types of leases to be compared


Chapter 23 commercial brokerage and leasing

Effective Rent Calculation Procedure Tenant and Lease

Step 1) Calculate the Lease Present

Value, LPV, as described earlier

Step 2) Calculate the Annualized Value

("Level Annuity Payment") of the LPV

where "k" is the same discount rate as

above, and "T" is again the term of the lease


Chapter 23 commercial brokerage and leasing

Numerical Example of Effective Rent Calculation Tenant and Lease

Lease "A":

Term: 5 years

Rent: $20/SF, net

Concessions: 1 year free rent, up front


Chapter 23 commercial brokerage and leasing

Effective Rent Calculation Tenant and Lease(Contd.)

Lease “B":

Term: 6 years

Rent: $25/SF, net

Concessions: 2 years free rent, up front

Landlord would prefer Lease A over Lease B,

even though lease B has a higher "nominal

rent" ($25/SF vs. $20/SF)

Similarly, the tenant would prefer Lease B

Proforma (Contd.) Building Value Estimation

  • Notice that in the next three years the projected NOI will decrease before it increases

  • This is simply the result of flat leases that become below market over time (prior to turning over) and later on being adjusted towards market rent

  • It is also the result of some assumed longer term vacancy rate of 5% which is not expected to occur for at least one year

Resale Proceeds Building Value Estimation

Step 1:Estimate the resale price

Step 2:Subtract expected selling costs and other transaction costs to derive Net Selling Price

Step 3:Subtract the mortgage balance remaining at the projected time of sale and any prepayment penalties due on the mortgage, to derive the before tax resale proceeds. This is where the analysis would stop if the investor is not a taxable entity

Step 4:Subtract the taxes due on sale to derive the projected after tax proceeds from resale

Commercial leasing and brokerage fees
Commercial Leasing and Estate FirmsBrokerage Fees

  • Like residential brokerage most commercial brokers or agents make their income mostly based on contingent commission fees

  • Contingent fees are paid only if a lease is signed or a property is bought or sold

  • These fees must include sufficient margins to subsidize the deals that don’t close and be large enough to cover overhead, research and support staff cost

  • Fees vary significantly but typical fees for a lease might run 6% of the base rent calculated over the initial term of the lease for a newly signed lease, and 3 to 5 % for a renewal lease
