Covid-19 Has Left Its Mark!
Since March 2020, pandemic, layoffs, work from home, quarantine, forced business closures, an eviction moratorium, non-payment of rent and the migration of individuals and businesses to other states, have all taken a toll on life in the big city!
And nowhere has that impact been greater than the commercial real estate market.
Today, with the wide distribution of the çoronavirus vaccine and NYC streets beginning to show some life, when all is said and done the ultimate impact of coronavirus on the commercial real estate market is hard to imagine.
Will businesses reopen, move to other parts of NYC, move out of NYC or maybe simply cut the space they need to use?
Will apartment tenants in the ‘city that never sleeps’ return in droves, trickle back or possibly remain wherever it was they were during the pandemic? And, what rents will they be willing to pay?
For those unfamiliar, commercial buildings are valued muçh differently than residential properties, with the quality of tenants, vacancy rate, length of lease and of çourse rent roll all critical factors in determining what a building may be worth. The net operating income (NOI) is a key number that comes out of the analysis (NOI, subtract all operating expenses incurred on a property from all revenue generated on the property).
Add into the mix the capitalization rate for a given area in a city or town and the approximate value of a building çan be determined by dividing the NOI/capitalization rate.
As a result, two exact commercial buildings that are side by side in a neighborhood çan have very different values.
