Commercial Real Estate Investment: Bargain Shopping in America
If you were a stockbroker and discovered that Microsoft stock was selling for $120 a share in Northern California and at only $60 a share in Chicago, you probably would figure out a way to buy it at the lower cost in Chicago. As commercial real estate investors today, we find ways to take advantage of the tremendous inefficiencies that exist around the country (and around the globe) in the same way.
Unlike stock, no two real estate investments are exactly alike, so the challenges and opportunities are significant. For example, today we can purchase a Northern California property for $210 per square foot at an 8.2 percent capitalization rate or we can buy a similar one in Chicago for half that price psf with a 22 percent higher cap rate. When you consider the falling rents and job losses occurring in Northern California and the fact that it is the highest priced market in the country, it would be prudent to diversify into other regions with less downside risk.
