Week #4 Assignment –
Steps to Success Students, are you ready for our Week #4 Assignment? You are going to put together a finance proposal for a selected commercial property. This is an exciting assignment, because this is a project you would likely complete in your career position. The paper is very comprehensive, so plan at least 2 hours per day in your schedule for studying. Research Property First, start by doing the research. You will need to identify a property on which you can access the listing agent. Instead of selecting one randomly out of LoopNet, please contact a local commercial real estate agent whom you can access. He or she will need to provide you with data, send you documents, and be available to answer questions. The best method to locate a commercial listing agent is to search for a Realtor® with the CCIM designation.
That stands for Certified Commercial Investment Member, an expert in commercial and investment real estate. http://www.findaccim.com (Links to an external site.) If that agent doesn’t answer their phone or respond to email, keep contacting other agents until you find one who is willing to work with you. Below is a screen shot of the search page. Enter your location and the type of property you’re searching for and click the red SEARCH button.
Locate 3 Lenders Next, after locating a subject property, you will need to contact three (3) commercial property lenders who could finance this property. For each lender you will need their: name, company name, phone number, and website. Include each of these 3 lenders in the appendix, along with a paragraph about background information for each. Headings For this paper, the headings are a bit unique as they are based upon the “Proposal for Finance” as shown starting on page 169 of the textbook. Proposal for Finance (include photo of property exterior) Table of Contents (use page 169 as a template) Summary (overview and thesis statement) General Description of Property Offered as Collateral (Brief description of the property, including use of the property as well as its location and size.
