BUSINESS, COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE and TECH GOLDEN INFONUGGETS

We use a powerful method of sharing - post #GoldenInfoNuggets on Social Media multiple times daily or in regular emails (every 5-15 days).  We’ve been sharing the essence of articles and a few powerful comments regularly.* 

Commercial Real Estate, Technology, Blockchain & AI


Michael Beckerman (29 years - public relations, real estate).   #CREtech #GROWTH #IMPEDIMENTS. "#CRE #Technology touts total funding and proliferation of startups — to the benefit the entire sector.  A #reality check is in order regarding growth impediments (#Blockchain #Business #PropTech #FinTech #SmallBusiness #Startup; edited - Lnkd.in/e5buaAh):
  • #ADOPTION.  #Scaling troubles many CREtech startups unless their customers fully adopt and engage with their product/solution - many targets simply do not have the #people or physical #infrastructure to #change the way they currently operate and implement new #processes (#awareness to #relevance.)"  Lnkd.in/ejJp5sb
  • CLIENTS ARE #OVERWHELMED and OVER #CAPACITY.  Clients have a lot on their plate, and #tech #adoption requires even more #bandwidth to align the right people at the right time — everyone from #data #scientists to #IT directors and #CTOs join the decision-making process.  Also, many clients don’t yet have the physical infrastructure to implement the tech (such as #AWS), which adds an even larger hurdle to adoption."  Lnkd.in/e6XbhyX 
  • "POST #SALES #SUCCESS.  Getting the sale isn’t enough to guarantee #adoption.  #Agile #startups are essential at this stage because post-sales success opens new hurdles, especially if #purchasers are NOT the #users.  They need to craft the right user experience (#UX), focusing on needs re #spaces or #lease #options, handling the priorities of both #tenants and #landlords.” Lnkd.in/eaFSaHZ 
  • NEW CLASS OF #PROFESSIONALS REQUIRED.  #Startups overcome the biggest, known #painpoints for customers, and need professionals able to ensure easy #adoption of the myriad #solutions CREtech startups dream up - #training customer experience (#CX) specialists, the customer success team [and CRE-oriented #Finance and #Accounting #consultants to implement the solutions, especially highly-integrated ones like the platform from CRE Collaborative Inc* that could mean a few process-flow and legacy-system changes].     Some providers have dedicated implementation/support professionals [which you pay in the price and the larger ones may choose to #outsource the onboarding and support, or CHOOSE your own local, already-known support consultants.]     The Age of Adoption is here, with a cultural shift toward #datadriven #decision. Hire, train [and contract] accordingly."   **CRE Collaborative's #Integrated #Broker / #Investor / #Developer / #Lender / #ServiceProfessional #PLATFORM. #EARLY #FREE #ACCESS - Lnkd.in/dedFk_p.  Lnkd.in/epZFKd4 


Andreas Senie (11 years - sales, real estate) of CRE Collaborative Inc** posted Howard Oliver (20 years - marketing) - #SHOPPING CENTERS and STRIP #MALLS still #VIABLE.  "Positive news about the #retail sector, with good #pop-up stores and retail #technology.  Some retailers are strong (#Target, #Kohls) because of smart product #differentiation, customer #engagement and #innovation, providing 'retail theatre' in a consistently great customer shopping #experience, usually #locallyowned retailers who know their customers.  #Onlineshopping can be empty and dull, so back to malls!"

Markus Fischer (11 years - consultant, technology) noted David Hossli (24 years - engineering, finance)'s Blog.  "#FUTURE OF #CRE.  Digital transformation is constantly changing the way we look at [commercial] real estate [CRE].  #Blockchain #technology has the potential to find new #answers to the changing #needs of the related stakeholders.  Some of these new technologies have had a huge #impact on the way we #create and #interact with real estate."   We'll look at Building information modelling (#BIM),  Virtual Reality (#VR), #Platform Economies and Blockchain, and "it’s just the beginning - there’s still much to be explored [which we do!]."  (#AI #Analysis #Business #Data #FinTech #PropTech #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness #Startup; edited - Lnkd.in/e7saNhs -> Lnkd.in/evKGvud):
  • BUILDING INFORMATION MODELLING (#BIM) allows us to create a #virtual #3D #model of a #building that simultaneously involves all #planners, #engineers, #builders and, to some extent, #users. Thanks to the managed coordination of all #stakeholders on one 3platform and #design, we can #reduce mistakes significantly during construction then asset and facility management. Lnkd.in/eQqrXBz 
  • VIRTUAL REALITY (#VR) allows us to create #photorealistic virtual #models of a house, apartment or #office space.  The look and feel of a building can be experienced by all #stakeholders, and potential #buyers or #users are able to #visit an object at any #time, from everywhere in the #world.  We are able to transmit a realistic #feeling of the built space and thus close #deals #faster.  Lnkd.in/ezN_axt 
  • #PLATFORM #ECONOMY.  Portals such as #WeWork allow us to find space to work worldwide through a simple #standardized #process, handled in exactly the same way worldwide, thus #democratising #access to CRE.  Numerous further #technologies, such as #IoT and #3Dprinting, will also #shape the industry."  Lnkd.in/e3GzqZu 
  • #BLOCKCHAIN technology has the potential to increase #trust and unequivocal #traceability within this #digital #technology, and to deploy even more added value by linking them together.   An example is the use of smart devices in combination with shared homes, where #SmartContracts on the blockchain are the backbone of #transactions between hosts and guests, and can be used in #access systems to #SmartHomes.  Another is the use of blockchain in combination with Building Information Modeling (#BIM) in order to reference #materials within a building for future #UrbanMining when the building is #recycled."  Lnkd.in/dc62cqX 

Commercial Real Estate and Business


Don Catalano (30 years - real estate):  TENANT-REP ADVANTAGE most company #officers (usually #CFOs) negotiate #leases every few YEARS, #landlords more often [say MONTHS- to their advantage], but #TenantRep #brokers negotiate even more often [say WEEKLY], and work in and analyze the #market DAILY!" [Who's going to do a better #job for the #tenant?] #CRE #Technology #Analysis #Business #FinTech #PropTech #Research #Expansion; paraphrased - Lnkd.in/dVGMJtf.

Frank Kusmer (34 years - finance, M&A).   "#SMALL_BUSINESS #LOAN #TIPS (#CRE #Analysis #Business #Data #FinTech #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness #Startup;edited - Lnkd.in/eK3tCSs): 
  • #INTEREST #RATE.  Many loan #components are just as or MORE important, including:  #repayment terms and #flexibility in repayments, the #term, and guarantees or assets used as collateral. The #RuleOfThumb here is to #understand all the #terms and #conditions, not just the interest rate." Lnkd.in/esYSHN5
  • #BORROW #ENOUGH to cover #unexpected #costs - being #careful with the amount of #debt to take on is #good, but borrowing too little to #finish what you started can be worse. Always include a #contingency amount for potential #expenses you did not #anticipate. Include #cashflow #projections for #lessperfect results." Lnkd.in/e25H288 
  • #STRENGTH.  Too many business owners WAIT until they have an urgent NEED for a loan.  But this is borrowing from a WEAK position that can cost more and puts the business itself at #risk.  
  • #PROJECT #CASH_FLOW.  #Managing cash flow is critical to any business. Too many business owners invest their cash flow back into their business without projecting #future cash flow needs.  Developing REGULAR #cashflow projections for the coming twelve months is one of the most important things a business owner can do [even a simple #spreadsheet works].   Make sure normal monthly #expenses, #extraordinary items and monthly #inflows are properly calculated to avoid undue financial #pressure."  Lnkd.in/e7g5gxa
  •  CALCULATE #LOAN #EARNINGS.  You have invested the loan to create extra profits.  Analyze the #risks and interest you could might save paying off the loan versus the earnings you receive from investing it in your business.
  • #GROW IN REALISTIC #STEPS.  Don't ask for loan amounts well beyond anything realistic compared to  current cash flow and the available collateral.   Having realistic goals for #progressive growth within your financial means." Lnkd.in/eK3tCSs

Michael Hess (20 years - aeronautics, finance) for noting Bill Ready (20 years - software, finance) - "KEY #FINANCIAL #SERVICES #TRENDS in the NEW AGE OF #WORK.  #Automation, artificial intelligence (#AI) and machine learning (#ML) create an opportunity to build new financial services for particularly-underserved #workers.  #Workplace #Trends within 10 #Technology Trends (#2019predictions #CRE #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness #Startup; edited - Lnkd.in/eiv9Txy):
10 Technology Trends
  • #WORKERS engaged in the #platform #economy need new #financial tools to meet their needs.  90%+ of US 10M net employment growth, 2005-15, was not traditional 9-5 jobs.  The platform economy is providing workers with many financial benefits, including better resilience, but still have significant unmet financial needs. Income from work more frequently - daily, weekly, 'when I sell/produce something' or 'as soon as the work I do is complete' - helps cash flow." Lnkd.in/eiwQ56R
  • #AUTOMATION, #AI and #ML will cause #jobchurn and #income more variable and uncertain; #workers will need #RETRAINING and access to new types of #credit and #savings. 40% world #jobs could be automated in 15 years, so workers may need to switch occupational categories, but people aren’t financially prepared, 62% unable to cover 6+ months of expenses without their primary income. #FinServs need to encourage short-term savings and create new, forward-looking credit offerings to allow retraining, entrepreneurialship [or both]. Lnkd.in/eeevnb6
  • #ENTREPRENEURSHIP is an increasingly important path for income #generation, requiring faster access to #funds, better financial #management tools and #credit, and to #smooth out income #fluctuations. While #SmallBusiness owners (SBOs) are more financially #resilient and #confident about the future than traditional 9-5 workers, only 46% (vs 72% of all workers) make #consistent income, and 55% of those have payed a bill #late over the last year. Most SBOs see more #frequent income #payments would (obviously) help." Lnkd.in/epCbrWF
  • #MILLENNIALS demand greater #flexibility, and robust, end-to-end #digital #tools are preferred for #FinancialManagement. 34% say they have multiple #jobs, compared to 25% of the older #GenXs, and seem comfortable with more-frequent job #transitions (3x non-millennials), and like #payment apps. Those in Brazil, China and India are 50%+ more likely to prefer work-payment apps. To better serve this emerging demographic of workers, the financial services industry needs to democratize access to robust digital financial management tools that can account for multiple income streams and help workers prepare for and manage volatility in earnings." Lnkd.in/dJQVurn


Saul Klein (46 years, real estate, entrepreneur).  #SOCIALMEDIA #ENGAGEMENT BUILDS #RELATIONSHIPS then #BUSINESS (#2019predictions #CRE #Technology #Analysis #Data #FinTech #PropTech #Research #Expansion #SmallBusiness #Startup; edited - Lnkd.in/eG_yuzb): 
  • "It USED to be:  Rapport -> Trust and Confidence -> Contracts -> Referrals, BUT NOW, massive #sociological #changes are in progress [, which requires RESPONDING to opportunities for engagement].  
  • With Social Media, there are many new ways to engage, the #nature changes with newer #modalities, and MORE ENGAGEMENTS MORE #OFTEN, allows for re-#establishing old relationships, and for building of new ones #faster. 
  • [LinkedIn,] Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, etc, etc [- pick two and dominate them].  At the end of the day, the person or entity that owns the relationship will own the business."


Frank Brock (25 years - business, finance).  #REALESTATE #MORTGAGE #APPROVAL. Great summary - good for #CRE too.  "Why is it tough to get a real estate loan? Lenders don't want to get burned. The borrower may look good on the surface. But, after digging through all the details - some lenders just don't need the risk or hassles of trying to get the principal back. Borrowers should: Keep the credit clean (it's hard to explain bad credit). Have income docs ready to show. Never negotiate rate or points, lenders hate that and go on to the next file. It's very competitive in mortgages and everyone offers the same rate and terms." #credit #payments #rates #mortgage #finance #realestate  #Analysis #Business #FinTech #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness #Startup; edite - Lnkd.in/e2wVgR5


Christina Doll (13 years - engineering, GIS).  #PLASTIC #WASTE to #FUEL #OIL.  "Instead of being in the sea, plastic should end up as oil for #heating. #Swiss company #Enespa, claims to have developed a method to extract 700 kilos of oil from a tonne of plastic - CO2 neutral [that's 70% #efficient -] part of the plastic is used during the #process to generate the necessary #energy."  Read the #whines and #responses, and #Western "reality" and #tradeoffs are much different than in #emerging #economies.   #Technology #Analysis #Business #Science #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness #Startup; Google translated; edited; English Lnkd.in/eykXfKy - Lnkd.in/eAmswZ9

BUSINESS, COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE and TECH GOLDEN INFONUGGETS

We use a powerful method of sharing - post #GoldenInfoNuggets on Social Media multiple times daily or in regular emails (every 5-15 days).  We’ve been sharing the essence of articles and a few powerful comments regularly.* 

Commercial Real Estate, Technology, Blockchain & AI



Andreas Senie (11 years - sales, real estate) of CRE Collaborative Inc** noted: #CRE #DATA #PLAN for the #FUTURE.  (#Technology #Analysis #Business #FinTech #PropTech #Research #Expansion #Investment #Startup; edited; Senie Lnkd.in/e3SK_5GLnkd.in/eFUSGcN):
  • Senie: "Make no mistake - your data is the #oil of the #digital #revolution. Thank you Saul Klein (46 years, real estate, entrepreneur), for lessons from #ResidentialRealEstate that apply to #CommercialRealEstate as #CREtech continues to evolve.  He describes the ground shifting for residential data #syndicators:  '#ListHub, #Point2 and #Realtor.com, but after 2012, succeeded by #Zillow' in a battle for YOUR data.  What about your #CRE data?"  
Klein video's outline:
  • "#Knowledge is #Power;
  • Data and #Information - Protect it, Control it and Monetize it.
  • #Listing data (inventories) have always been a broker/agent asset.
  • Use #strengths to carve out a #position in the future.
Also in this video is a piece on Zillow's 'Living Database of All Homes,' and the story behind Realtor.com's purchase of Listhub and Point2 syndication."

Michael Beckerman (29 years - public relations, real estate).  "UNDERSTANDING #CRE #BLOCKCHAIN 101 (cont'd from Lnkd.in/ertvVh3#Technology #Business #PropTech #FinTech #SmallBusiness #GoldenInfoNuggets; edited - Lnkd.in/exZsytK):
  • ONE #VIRTUAL #PACKAGE.  The goal is to assign a 'digital address' to every #property - #commercial to #residential - secured in an #OpenFormat database.  Each address will contain #data on the property for any kind of transaction, including:  #Occupancy; #Financial Background; #Features and #Performance; #Titles and #Deeds; #Liens and other #Historical Data.  Each digital address is secured. Any time a new #transaction is processed on a property, the data is automatically updated in #RealTime.  This prevents fraud and for speeds up the transaction and #paperwork."  Lnkd.in/gUM4tdz
  • LEAD #TECHNOLOGY.  There are new blockchain technology companies vying for #supremacy in commercial real estate - looking to improve upon processes for brokers.  #DigitalAddresses will be assigned by a CRE blockchain company like open-source Ethereum, will contain secured #lease and #purchase #transaction information, and can be accessed in a #publicly and #transparently. What will separate one blockchain company from another is how automated the data is in their blockchain, such as #SmartContracts that can automatically execute #payments, lease #agreements, #renewals, and other executable actions, after an appropriate number of signatures have been verified."  Lnkd.in/da2TdhT 
  • #CHALLENGES FACING ADOPTION.  One blockchain obstacles is tying #digital address or #token #data back to a #physical address.  FOAM Inc is creating #technology using #beacons to link virtual blockchain addresses to their physical locations.  Other companies are providing #MLS listings backed by blockchain technology.  Using for both #residential and CRE will #incentivize #brokers and #agents to #adopt blockchain more rapidly.  Using digital addresses enable #sales and #leasing #transactions using the same virtual tokens. When blockchain revolutionizes CRE, it could cut out many of #middlepersons typically involved.  HOWEVER, this technology is still being #tested on a #smallscale and has yet to truly #disrupt the market."   
  • RECOMMENDATION.  Make sure you lead the technology via #GoldenInfoNuggets and their sources, rather than become part of the fallout.  Lnkd.in/exubpvx

Justin Wu (18 years - software, crypto, blockchain, Calif).  #COLORADO's NEW #DIGITAL #TOKEN LAW (#Bitcoin #Analysis #Data #FinTech #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness #Startup #GoldenInfoNuggets, edited - Lnkd.in/epE5SDp): 
  • "This law exempts certain cryptocurrencies from #securities #laws and allows #technologists there to operate outside of strict securities #registration requirements.  This is huge development by a #state, leading by example - bet it was heavily inspired by #Wyoming. How can we make this #spread to others?"
  • We must be #vigilant by joining #local blockchain #groups that #alert us of impending #legislation.  Laws, and their associated regulations, are needed to protect #cypto #owners and #developers, as well as #blockchain and #transactions from over-bearing #government #control.    The #USSEC can be a scary #beast, not easily kept at bay by states.

  • INTRO.  "just a hype or game changer? Blockchain or Distributed Ledger Technology (#DLT) is increasingly entering the corporate world.  At the Breakfast Briefing, we showed the current #status, #opportunities and #risks of this #technology and present the #integration of blockchain services into modern document management." 
  • PRESENTATION.  "There are great #demand for rational and faster business processes, handling of the resulting flood of #information and the guarantee of access to #data and #documents. Challenges continue: the increasing #mobilization, legal compliance of business-process #automation and #digitization, duplication, and secure access.  Optimal solutions:  on-premise or cloud-based; complete solution or best of breed?" 
  • ECM SOFTWARE EVALUATION. "ECM helps companies organize, manage and distribute unstructured content - #office-suite and other textual documents, #images, #CADD, #health and #accounting records, surveys, product information, #emails and #webpages, to store, track, edit and collaborate on creation and projects on several computer #platforms, while maintaining #security at every level of the organization."  G2Crowd's evaluation is graphical and extensive.  


Commercial Real Estate and Business

Don Catalano (30 years - real estate). "COMMERCIAL #OFFICE #DESIGN #TRENDS. The modern-day #workplace is continuing to change. Past office #space was for workers in a traditional day, with landlines, fax machines, large desktop computers, and dial-up connections. Rapidly-changing technologies demanded extreme modifications for workers and companies. Trends for 2019 (#CRE #Analysis #Business #Data #PropTech #Research #Expansion #Investment #GoldenInfoNuggets; edited - Lnkd.in/eZsn7QJ):
  • OPERATION-BASED WORKING (#OBW) - offers employees choices on how, when and where they work, providing a selection of work settings, for each kind of #task - #workstations, joint #areas, #concentration zones and the #technology for connecting with #remote #workers and #contractors." Lnkd.in/eerxkky
  • #BRAND IDENTITY - you have a #story to sell, so construct your building and layout, and design your interior, to share that story showing a creative, modern and stylish brand:  inspire your employees and community; create sense of identity; better understand company goals; and boost recruitment.
  • #WELLBEING - employee #happiness is important, and office design is changing to focus more on #health. Those in good health are more #innovative and better #solve problems.  Provide teams with beautiful office designs and functionality that veritably make people feel better."  Lnkd.in/e_DWCP7
  • #FLEXIBLE #WORKSPACES. Many esteemed designers believe flexible and agile spaces should be highly engaging and not be hindered by any #physical or #ergonomic problems. Re-arranged furniture to the taste of a worker or team to impact productivity. Furniture should be #comfortable and #convenient, and enable the work without #inconveniences. Lnkd.in/d33Cm3V
  • #PRIVACY-FRIENDLY WORKSTATIONS.  Despite the popularity of open spaces and dynamic layouts, there’s still a strong reason NOT to put private areas. If you enclose some part on your floor plan, you leave out the conventional dividers or booths. Instead, use semi-enclosed arrangements [and make sure partitions are high enough, and ceilings absorb enough #sound, to ensure minimal distraction]. 
  • YOUR #CHOICE.  Rather than settle for one of these types of office trends, work with a renowned furniture and office design #expert to help you choose ideas that are most #suitable for your business."   Lnkd.in/e3_SjHM

BUSINESS, COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE and TECH GOLDEN INFONUGGETS

We use a powerful method of sharing - post #GoldenInfoNuggets on Social Media multiple times daily or in regular emails (every 5-15 days).  We’ve been sharing the essence of articles and a few powerful comments regularly.* 

Commercial Real Estate, Technology, Blockchain & AI


Andreas Senie (11 years - sales, real estate) and Jim Fried (34 years - business, real estate) talk cutting edge CRE tech re CRE Collaborative Inc's Integrated #Broker / #Investor / #Developer / #Lender / #ServiceProfessional #Platform - EARLY ACCESS at Lnkd.in/dedFk_p. It is "a 2.0 Technology Market Network integrating real estate #professionals, real estate #data, and technology. Think Kayak's 'Search One & Done' for the commercial real estate industry. It is the industry’s first 2.0 platform that aggregates real estate data and technology in one place – the only platform providing #transparency between the #silos of data and technology." #CRE #Technology #Business; edited; recording Lnkd.in/eQEpGv9.


Justin Wu (18 years - software, crypto, blockchain) commented on #MALTA to be #BLOCKCHAIN ISLAND.  At "The Malta Blockchain Summit," 11/2018, "Prime Minister hails #CryptoCurrency as the 'Future of Money,' and will 'filter good businesses from bad businesses.' Bittrex, Binance and more have moved to Malta. Seems like the spot for banking, security tokenization, and exchanges. #Bittrex, #Binance and more have moved to Malta - THE spot for #banking, #security #tokenization and #exchanges."  Forbes@Gerald Fenech continues, "Malta's backing has created a haven for crypto companies to flourish, and to earn its title as the 'Blockchain Island.' The Maltese parliament passed 3 regulatory bills in July, with the goal of driving #innovation and setting up a #regulatory #framework for blockchain companies to operate."  #Technology #Analysis #Business #Data #Science #PropTech #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness #Startup; edited; Wu's comment Lnkd.in/gb4eDvV; next summit Lnkd.in/gWpFQ9S; Forbes Lnkd.in/gkUk5h2Lnkd.in/gpc9Wes.

Michael Beckerman (29 years - public relations, real estate).  "UNDERSTANDING #CRE #BLOCKCHAIN 101.  Blockchain technology is the new buzzword in CRE despite having its foundation in #cryptocurrency like #Bitcoin.   For #brokers who barely understand cryptocurrency, the idea of applying the concept underlying virtual currency to CRE seems overly complex, so here we try to make it as simple as possible to understand."  (#Technology #AI  #Business #PropTech #FinTech #SmallBusiness #Startup; edited - Lnkd.in/exZsytK):
  • "Everything You Need in One Virtual Package"
  • "The 'Bitcoin' of Commercial Real Estate Blockchain Technology"
  • "Challenges Facing Blockchain Adoption in CRE."

Markus Fischer (11 years - consultant, technology) noted Christina Doll (13 years - engineering, GIS) interview with Ralf Glabischnig (21 years - finance, entrepreneur).  "#BLOCKCHAIN - GAME CHANGER in the #REALESTATE #MARKET" (#CRE #Switzerland; edited; original comment Lnkd.in/eiW-TYS; translated version Lnkd.in/eVU3d4p; interview Lnkd.in/ed4QSps):
  • "Blockchain is changing the #financial world - to what extent is Blockchain relevant to Real Estate?  ‘It's particularly predestined for the use of Blockchain - for the #Internet of values.’
  • "What #trends are emerging in this regard for the Swiss real estate market? ‘1. Today - increasing #efficiency 2. Short-term - process #innovation 3. Medium term - #financing.’
  • "Blockchain as a #gamechanger – ‘All companies and institutions in the market should do an in-depth #examination of blockchain #technology to understand its impact on the current business model - #brokers, financial #institutions, #notaries or even #rental #platforms.’
  • "What fascinates you most about Blockchain?  ‘#Groundbreaking #changes in corporate and business models that enable the use of #DistributedLedger #technologies.’” 

Jeff Jacobson (36 years - law, labor, business) of LaSalle Investment Management and Richard Bloxam (10 years - CRE capital) of JLL reported. "HOW #TECHNOLOGY is DRIVING #TRANSPARENCY in #CRE. From buildings filled with sensors tracking employees, to software that monitors reams of leasing documents, new technologies rapidly flourish, and they share a common output: #data ... #BIGdata promising huge leaps forward for the real estate industry, and [we predict] greater transparency, especially in markets where information remains tightly held. We’ve gotten used #tech #tracking everything from our health to our relationships, raising the bar in terms of what we expect. Significant change is coming: 250+ #PropTech #startups have raised $Bs around the world. [Will look at] 'Transparency through technology' and 'Long-term promise.'" (#2019predictions #Blockchain #Analysis #Business #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness; edited - Lnkd.in/ehtaVeU):
  • "Transparency Through Technology. #USA, #Netherlands, #Canada and others boasting high levels of CRE transparency, embraced #PropTech. But in #China, #Dubai, #Mexico, #Brazil, #Egypt, #Argentina, #Estonia and other where #data #coverage may be less extensive, #blockchain and brokerage #apps will significantly boost, even #leapfrog, transparency. Transparancy #innovations also include: #listing websites, #transaction records and property #registries. This could lead to greater global standardization in all areas relating to property, from city #planning to #environmental #reports.". Lnkd.in/e6H4e8N
  • "LONG-TERM PROMISE, SHORT-TERM PROBLEMS. Accurately monitoring real estate markets requires high-quality insights from strong #DataSets - poor quality is a natural side effect of #scraping online sources. #Ownership of information is also a key concern. Property #owners and #managers can collect vast amounts of [private] data on #tenants through sensors, internet-linked #devices and #video feeds. Tightly-held data could limit the broader benefits of new tools on wider market transparency. Improvements continue to be made but #investors and corporate #occupiers are demanding ever higher levels of disclosure.” Lnkd.in/eccXc-2

Yves Mulkers (17 years - high-tech consultant, entrepreneur).  EMBEDDED #ANALYTICS - KEY #DIFFERENTIATOR to #DATA-DRIVEN #ORGANIZATIONS.  "Data is everywhere, but unfortunately #access, #insights and direct #feedback take a longsome and tedious #process to have your decisions backed by #facts based on the data you produce.  Over the last decade, technology development has helped organizations to respond swiftly to #market events, but not yet #fast and #flexible enough.  (#Technology #DeepLearning #Analysis #Business #Data #Science #Research #Expansion #Investment; edited - Lnkd.in/e4QM6S8):
  • ANALYTICS ALL OVER the #APPLICATION #STACK.  "We recently saw a live #demo, of how an approval form was built on the fly with zero to no #coding, selecting the data sets needed and defining security, all based on analytics and metadata, available in the SAP Corporation cloud platform, integrating business #processes, #data, #security, #analytics, #infrastructure and #scalability.

Don Catalano (30 years - real estate). NEW-#OFFICE ACQUISITION #RESEARCH. "Before #lease or #purchase, thoroughly #analyze and #consult #experts (#CRE #Business #Data #PropTech #Research #Expansion #Investment #SmallBusiness #Startup; edited - Lnkd.in/emdgJCG):
  • "#Assess Future #Space #Needs - having a larger-than-necessary office is better than running out of space. #Overcrowded offices #worker #engagement and #productivity.
  • "#Buy Later - if Starting up, even the next #Unicorn, keep #costs minimal. [It will take #cash down and #CashFlow to qualify, and you don't want to #burn your #operating #capital.]"
  • However, it may be smart to buy if you have assets you can parlay into a building that you can #rent to other strong, perhaps #complementary businesses paying for your space AND ALL POSSIBLE BUILDING #EXPENSES without distracting much from your #mission, go ahead.

Beyond the #traffic patterns and the neighborhood #demographics, there are more salient factors to consider (many businesses have failed because they are located in the wrong place) - Proximity to where your employees #live; #Amenities in the building and also what is nearby; Expansion #space availability; #Safety and #security of the location.
  • "#SEARCH BEYOND PUBLIC LISTINGS. There are hundreds of amazing properties that are not publicly available on #listing #websites - you may be missing amazing property opportunities that suit your business best. #TenantRep #Brokers - who know your #industry well - can help.

  • "#RATIONAL PURCHASE. Avoid letting your emotions influence your buying decisions. Your purchase has to be #strategic by considering #location, historical #performance and property’s #size.
  • "#ANALYZE ONGOING and UPFRONT COSTS. Factor all the running and future costs into your buying decision. Failure to pay attention to the upfront and ongoing costs could negatively affect your business’ bottom line." Lnkd.in/g_NuSCE
