Commercial Real Estate Options with The Sundance Company

Your business is ready to roll, and now you need to decide where you are going to begin your capitalist dreams. Renting your office space can be a wise option, and it may make financial sense as well as logistical sense.

Renting an office means that you get the space you need for the time that you need it. A one, two or three year lease, with an option to terminate at the end of each year allows for a high degree of flexibility in managing the space needs of your office.

Business success may mean you need more space. Business challenges may mean that you need less. The ability to react to changing business circumstances is important and renting your office space allows that.

Renting also does not tie you to a specific location. The ability to change the location of your office within the year is very important when your business is dynamic and ever changing. The office is part of a business’s image, and a change in location often leads to a positive change in image.

On the financial side, rent is 100% deductible in the year it is paid. Many business owners may see that as a disadvantage, but it is not. Tax planning should take into account management of taxes owed.

Buying an office, a building or some other type of owned space, means that the cost must be depreciated over many years. That cost may require 37 years of depreciation on the business’s taxes. The amount of depreciation may be smaller than the rent you might have paid, meaning that the business will pay more taxes by owning.

Owning also means that the maintenance and upkeep of the building is now your responsibility. Unless that happens to be the business that you are in, these duties and the costs involved are a distraction from the real purpose of the business. The owned office may actually require costs to the business that in a rental are part of the lessors cost. Is a new roof really how the business’s cash ought to be invested?

Owning also limits the business’s ability to expand, and places costs on a shrinking business that leasing does not. Adding on to owned property is costly, and paying for space you no longer have a need for is, also.

Renting your office space can be a wise option. It allows your business flexibility to adapt to changing circumstances. It may provide tax advantages in some cases. It frees the business from having to pay for costs of ownership that do not directly benefit the success of the business.

6 Tools For Time-Strapped CRE Professionals

 

Here are six tools that can be particularly useful for commercial real estate professionals.

FTL (FindThatLead)

This extension helps your prospecting efforts by pulling emails from LinkedIn profiles (or any social accounts). It allows you to save all your contacts to the dashboard and export them to your CRM so you can reach out for their business.

Boomerang

With this extension, you can schedule emails to go out at a time of your choosing. It lets you take care of correspondence efficiently, scheduling important messages to arrive at the ideal time. Boomerang also provides reminders about important events or deadlines.

Smartr Inbox

This tool provides you with an address book for your Gmail account. It can include detailed information on contacts, and will send updates on your activity on social media, like Facebook or Twitter. The extension provides an extensive history of communication with each of your contacts, so you can make your message relevant and clear.

Related Content by Zemanta

For the busy blogger, this extension is a lifesaver. Writing a relevant and useful blog post can be time-consuming, but it’s important to be consistent. Finding additional resources to expand on the topic is a great way to instantly improve a post or build an ongoing series.

Related Content recommends images, links, articles and tags as the user writes, so it’s quick and easy to create links that enrich your content and drive traffic. The user also receives up-to-date analytics for their site.

Ginger Page

Nobody’s perfect, but no matter how busy you are, posting a piece with grammar or spelling errors is unprofessional. Mistakes will only distract the reader from your intended message and make you look sloppy. Using this extension eliminates those errors by alerting you with pop-ups. It’s like having your 10th grade English teacher at your elbow.

1Password

Sick of wasting time recovering passwords you can’t remember? It’s unwise to rely on one or two passwords for all sites, but using a variety can make it hard to keep track—especially for sites you only use on occasion. Every site has a different procedure: verification code, temporary password, security questions that you don’t remember setting up. 1Password takes it all away, and it also works for credit card numbers and registration form info.

6 ways to convince your coworkers to adopt new technology

 

“My coworkers are used to Excel and Outlook. They have their way of doing things and they don’t have time to learn a new tool. What can I do about it?”


We hear it all the time. Coworkers may be particularly resistant to change sometimes, but change management in general is something all businesses (and managers) face. New technology often promises to make your lives better or easier, but you have to get everyone on board for it to work.

Here are some ways to make new technology adoption successful.

  1. Put the right communication and training in place from the beginning.

When announcing the change and communicating along the way, don’t overwhelm your coworkers with information. Talk about and train coworkers on changes to their day-to-day process. By focusing on real-world examples, you can overcome the “fear of the new” as users realize the benefits of the new technology.

Also be clear about what’s changing and what’s in it for them. Will it give them the opportunity to make more money? Will it increase productivity in a way that reduces weekend work?

  1. Remember that it’s a political campaign. Get the influential users on-board and neutralize negative parties.

You probably already know the people who are going to be excited about this, as well as those who will resist the change. Make sure to sit down with both factions beforehand. Get the champions involved so they can coach others on how to use the technology to their benefit. Don’t just pick the most tech-savvy individuals; choose people who work horizontally across the organization and are well respected within the team. It can be more meaningful and valuable to get some coworkers who aren’t typically among the earliest tech adopters to help champion a new platform or tool.

Continue to manage emotions through the process. Focus on the positive, and stay positive yourself. Your coworkers look to leadership, so make sure to lead by example.



  1. Make it fun.

Throughout the year, coworkers come together to create winning March Madness brackets, fantasy football teams and pots of chili—competing passionately for bragging rights or another prize. Create a similar competition to build excitement and encourage coworkers to use your new CRM or other new tool. To reduce the technology gap between individuals, set up teams so the more tech-savvy coworkers can coach the less tech-inclined. For example, give a company-paid dinner to the first team to have each broker log 50 calls inside of the CRM. Or give a gift card to the first broker to successfully convert five new proposals to a listing.



  1. Share success stories.

Once employees begin to use the technology more and more, draw attention to the positive impact it’s having on individual and organizational results. Publicizing quick wins helps build a case for change and encourages further adoption. It’s as easy as sending an email or giving a shout-out at your weekly team meeting.


5. Have a post-implementation plan.

Training and adoption do not end when the new system goes live. In fact, post-implementation support is an important area for ensuring ongoing user adoption. Make sure to take advantage of any webinars or training your technology vendor offers, and follow-up with your coworkers frequently.



  1. Set your expectations for technology adoption.

If the tool produces reports and analytics, make sure to use them during check-ins with your team. Use it to review pipeline, performance or other metrics you care about. If you use it yourself—and expect them to as well—make sure it becomes part of your process and interactions.
