Bright Spots for South Florida Commercial Real Estate in 2013

Many South Florida commercial real estate markets are slowly pulling out of the slump caused by the Great Recession. In many areas, the recovery remains slow, though. This makes it an excellent time to be a tenant looking for space.

Landlords are motivated by two factors that work together in your factor. The first is that, as you can see, they’re still contending with a great deal of vacancy in their buildings. At the same time, many of the tenants that they do have are paying lower rents than they did in the past. Because of this, you can expect to get a warm reception from property owners. This is especially true if your company is strong, stable and willing to sign a relatively long term lease.

Time is of the essence, though. The balance of power is beginning to shift in the South Florida commercial real estate market. Since many developers suspended projects, the market is coming off of a few years of light construction with tight inventories. At the same time, tenants are starting to come back to the market. This could lead to higher rents and fewer options for you to consider later in the year.

Steps To An Environmentally Friendly South Florida Business

B Energy-efficient equipment and eco-friendly standards of operation can save you money in energy bills and lower the environmental impact made by your business in South Florida. B Use the following tips to have a more environmentally friendly business.

A big environmental issue in offices is the amount of paper used. Luckily, the increasing influence of digital copies can help you reduce the amount of paper you use with a couple of changes. B A fax machine, for example, should be upgraded to a digital version so you can view as an email rather than printing out each copy. If you have to print out on paper, try to use both sides.

Do not waste paper but try to reuse anything that normally you would throw away. You could collect any paper that is reusable in an office brecycleb box, and then write notes or office memos on the back. Always use good quality recycled paper.

Do not use paper cups and plates. Use real plates and cutlery, and wash them. This is a much better eating and drinking experience and is also helping the environment.

Change your light bulbs to ones that are less power consuming, and make it a habitB to switch off your lights and electronics at the end of the day, rather than leave electrical appliances on standby.
