from David Massie - DJM Commercial Real Estate

Commercial Real Estate Update 2014 Past and 2015 Projected

In our meeting this week, I brought up the subject of the buying section of commercial real estate being very hot right now with prices peaking.  There is very small inventory and many buyers pushing up prices to all time highs.

I thought you might find this blog interesting related to commercial real estate, our economy, and what surprised many in 2014 and projections for 2015.  #10 on this blog relates to the current market for commercial real estate wherein it is expected that rental rates are expected to rise.  So, my recommendation is that you and your clients lock in a rate as soon as possible for as long as possible in the future while rates are still lower.

    Mailer Project Meeting

    Synergy Members!

    The Mailer Meeting is scheduled this Thursday after the Synergy Meeting! We will meet to discuss the advertising mailer project.  Our intention is for Synergy to send out a quarterly mailer to ALL of its 1800 Chamber members. This is an outstanding opportunity for you to "MAKE A BIG VERY IMPRESSION" with a little budget!   You can present your special business propositions, discounts to Chamber members, talk business-to-business with your fellow Chamber members, and more for a fraction of what it would cost to do it alone.

    We will be running 1/2 page and full page ad inserts and are limiting the number of inserts to a max of 20. 
      
    Each member will be responsible for delivering printed copies of your full page or 1/2 page advertisement.
     
    If 20 members participate, the cost per member will be apx. $85.00 for 1/2 page inserts and $170.00 for full page inserts. This is an excellent opportunity for members!

    We will be meeting on Thursday after the Synergy meeting, so plan on sticking around after the meeting for more information and to sign up.


    If you are not a Synergy Business Connection member, feel free to come to a meeting and check us out: read here for more information.

How Gratitude Can Benefit Your Health

What are you thankful for and do you express this daily? What if we told you that such gratitude could be rewarded with better health? “Thousands of years of literature talk about the benefits of cultivating gratefulness as a virtue,” says University of California Davis psychology professor Robert Emmons. Grateful people – those who perceive gratitude as a permanent trait rather than a temporary state of mind – have an edge on the not-so-grateful when it comes to health, according to Emmons’...
