Q3 Newsletter 2019

Dear Friends and Clients,

Attached please find our Q3 2019 newsletter. Third quarter market fundamentals remained strong as vacancy lowered in most sectors and rents increased. Most significantly, in the industrial sector, lack of inventory is driving new projects that will be available in the fourth quarter of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020. All indications point toward a strong end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020.

As always, thank you for your trust and confidence in our capabilities. Please feel free to call or email me any time with questions about commercial real estate in our region.

Sincerely,
Gary Tasman
CEO & Principal Broker

Have you called your primary care doctor lately and been told to go to urgent care?

It is the trend in the medical Sector. It is also a great opportunity for medical office space investors.

Urgent care centers (UCC) will bridge the gap between planned primary care visits and jammed emergency room visits. Urgent care centers free up emergency services by treating immediate needed, but non-life threatening illness or injury. UCCs are characteristically free-standing. Another new trend is major retail pharmacy chains creating retail clinics inside the pharmacy that give vaccinations, treat minor illness without the need for a doctor.

Florida has the highest forecasted need for new urgent care centers by 2030 based on population growth, specifically those 65 years and older. In Charlotte, Lee and Collier County, six (6) new UCCs opened since 2016.

Charlotte, Collier, Lee, Hendry, and Glades Counties have designated Opportunity Zones. Opportunity Zones incentivize investment in low-income or economically challenged areas.

Program Benefits:

Opportunity Zone Programs are similar to 1031 exchange in that the property is identified within a designated time frame, 180 days. December 31, 2019 is the initial deadline. Capital gains can be deferred up to December 31, 2026.

Investors may defer taxes on long-term capital gains, effectively reducing tax liability to 15%, but must hold interest in the asset for at least five years.

Investors who hold the fund for at least ten years can sell their interest in the property, and there is no capital gains tax.

Some programs require job creation along with the capital investment in the Qualified Opportunity Zone. This map illustrates the Opportunity Zones in Southwest Florida.

If you are interested in investing in an opportunity zone or own property in an opportunity zone, we will help you through the process.
