2. In what type of real estate does Joshua James Investments invest?
There is two primary categories of real estate investment strategies, each with its own risk and return characteristics. Moving between those strategies is a bit like stepping up the ladder in terms of taking on more risk, and in theory, being compensated for that risk with a higher return objective.
Property characteristics: Lower occupancy or secondary market locations with an opportunity to increase value through renovations or re-positioning
Risk/Reward: Medium Leverage: Low to medium
Opportunistic Property characteristics:
Typically raw land or ground-up development with little to no near term cash flow
Risk/Reward: High Leverage: High
Active vs Passive:
The way an investor owns real estate can be just as important as the underlying real estate and investment strategy. Considerations need to be made for taxes, transparency, property operations, potential tenant issues, diversification and individual financial responsibility.
3. How do you determine in what properties to invest?
All properties are individually chosen by the investors. JJI uses professionals to research each site. Factors looked at are:
a. The Property (property condition, financials, comparable properties and tenant mix).
b. The Location (population, employers, transportation).
c. In addition, our team does site visits of every property to do market rental comparable surveys, review the property location, walk the property to determine the physical shape of the asset and its grounds, as well as assess desirability of the location for renters.
d. JJI does not invest in properties requiring the new construction of a building; raw land as a standalone investment.
e. Other factors considered is that commercial real estate equity investments will be subject to risks inherent in ownership of real estate. Real estate cash flows and values are affected by a number of factors, including competition from other available properties and our ability to provide adequate property maintenance and insurance and to control operating costs. Real estate cash flows and values are also affected by such factors as government regulations (including zoning, usage and tax laws), interest rate levels, the availability of financing, property tax rates, utility expenses, potential liability under environmental and other laws and changes in environmental and other laws.
4. Why should I invest in commercial real estate investments?
You have the potential to generate income and opportunity for capital appreciation — A key feature of commercial real estate investment is the significant proportion of total return accruing from rental income over the long term. Rental income can allow an investor to hold a commercial real estate investment through market cycles without having to liquidate the investment to generate cash flow.
