#Top10 Reasons to buy Commercial Real Estate

Posted on by admin in Real Estate | Leave a comment

Commercial property Indiranagar

As an investor, one is sometimes confused by the plethora of choices available in the market. Even within one sector viz. real estate, one is confused whether to invest in for plot, residential or commercial real estate. Traditionally, investors go in for residential real estate (more so as they are also living there) and sometimes plot/ land. Typically, anyone looking to invest in another property would already own their present home and hence buying an investment with similar physical and commercial characteristics is just so much easier to deal with. It is a fact that buying an office space or a retail store would not even cross the minds of most such investors.

There are some savvy investors who also explore investing in commercial real estate, mainly for the following reasons:

  1. Good returns: one of the biggest benefit of investing in commercial real estate is that it leads to a regular income stream, significantly higher than residential real estate. Besides, commercial property leases have traditionally contained clauses dictating that rent reviews are “upward only” meaning it cannot be lesser after review.
  2. High appreciation: As most of the commercial real estate properties are in prime locations and the supply is limited (vis. a vis. residential which can be situated in faraway locations), the degree of appreciation is high.
  3. Easy to maintain: Unlike a residential real estate, where there are multiple things to look at, commercial real estate is easier to maintain and lease out. Also, the responsibilities for repairs and maintenance are different. Unlike residential properties, in commercial properties, tenants are typically responsible for the costs of maintenance and repairs. Also since the lease length is higher in commercial property, it requires less time and investment from the lessor.
  4. Accumulate Equity: Commercial real estate helps you to place debt on the asset which is several times the original equity. This means that you can buy more assets with less capital and thus increase your equity manifold as the loans get paid.
  5. Combats Inflation: When inflation occurs, the real estate price also rises- particularly multi-tenant assets which have a high ratio of labour and replacement costs. Thus, commercial real estate investments has the highest correlation to inflation when compared to other investments.
  6. Combat Economic cycles: Real estate is a cyclical business. Often, residential and commercial real estate cycles operate differently. If you have a significant investment in your existing home (residential), it may be wise to make your next investment in a commercial property that could move according to a somewhat different market cycle. It is always a good idea to diversify!
  7. Less Competition: Residential properties attract not only investors but homeowners as well and the growing trends in real estate investment tend to focus on the best ways to buy, sell and flip residential homes. For this reason, commercial properties are often overlooked, despite the unlimited potential that any location may have.
  8. Greater Choices of Investment Locations: Since leases on commercial properties tend to be longer than on residential ones, it doesn’t matter so much where you invest. This enables you to consider opportunities in Asia, Europe, America, Middle East or wherever else you would like to.
  9. Entrepreneurship dream: Most of the employed professionals harbor an entrepreneurship dream. While the actual decision to make a business plan, quit and start your own thing may take a while, if you invest in a commercial space while you are earning a fixed package, it helps you save some necessary liquidity when you actually materialize the dream.
  10. Ownership Pride: There is great joy to know that you own a property which produces income and drives the economic engine of many households and also consequently, the nation at large.

Entrepreneurship 80Edifice

Most of us are at such a phase in our life where we are doing well financially- own a house or two, have a stable family life. Sounds picture perfect- doesn’t it?  But somewhere deep within, there is restlessness, a deep unrest which is due to a burning desire – of doing something of our own. But we get so comfortable- in our 9-8 jobs and earning fat and secure pay packages every month that we are scared of crossing the road.

But as Mark Twain said:  “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

 

There is no bigger happiness than pursuing your entrepreneurship dream. It is not a cakewalk and there will be challenges. Besides the obvious challenge of uncertainty and risk, there is also a big challenge of budding entrepreneurs not having a clue of how to run a business. The legalities of it, the taxation, admin – you are answerable for everything. While it is a big high to be accountable for everything, it also means that you will be spending your most expensive resource- your time on areas which can be a distraction and take you away from your main dream.

It is important thus to invest in a startup eco system – a physical space where you can conduct your business, with a built in layer for government compliance and mentoring. 80Edifice is such an eco system – Invest in it and focus on your dream and let us take care of the rest.

Most of us would read this, get tempted and postpone the thought. It’s totally up to you but as Carrie Wilkerson said- The longer you’re not taking action, the more money you’re losing. So take your action NOW!!

Develop your dream garden

Posted on by admin in Gardening | Leave a comment

Come Spring and you are greeted with gorgeous flowers of various colours in Bangalore. Research showed that flowers have an immediate impact on happiness, have a positive effect on moods over the longer term and lead to better contact with family and friends. Flowers can even heal. Because they are more visual during the springtime, they are also associated with the new life that emerges after a long winter.

A healthy, colourful garden is a treat to the eye and the mind. However, to own one, one has to consciously consider a few things. Most of the time we get tempted to buy pots full of lovely seasonal flowers or other pretty plants, which last only a few months and then it’s back to the good old money plant by the corner. This is for all of you who wish to have some lasting greenery in your homes.

It all depends three things, timeplace and right choices. Although this is obvious to most of us, more often than not, we don’t apply these thumb rules when we select our plants.

 Time – Does your lifestyle allow you to spend at least half an hour with your plants each day? Or would you much rather not make this a regime and tend to them twice a week? You need to be honest with yourself.

 Place – Knowing your space is important. Which parts of your balcony receive more sunlight than the rest. Take some time to make a mental note of the zones in your balcony. You will need to purchase the right number of plants and place them accordingly.

Both time and place, should guide you on your choice of plants for your garden.

5 New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

Posted on by admin in Household tips | Leave a comment

It’s that time of the year when resolutions are made for the year. Every year when January rolls around you vow to lose weight, save money or spend more time with family and friends. But what goals do you set for your home??

Some of the tips below can help you work on your resolutions that will make your home a more beautiful, efficient, clean and green place in 2014.

1. Streamline the stuff

One of the best and least expensive ways to feel better about your home is to clear it of clutter.

Each year most of us acquire a mountain of stuff. Without some regular purging, cabinets and drawers get jam-packed and it becomes hard to find the things you use and enjoy the most. This year resolve to go room-by-room periodically clearing anything that you don’t use, wear or love and donate it to charity. After that, think twice about what you bring in. Fill your home with the things that raise your energy level and make you feel good, and get rid of the things that drain your energy or are broken. And get ready to breathe a little easier in your own home.

2. Make it safe and sound

Your home may be beautiful, but is it safe? There are a few things that every homeowner should do to ensure that they’re not living with a potential health hazard or fire risk. If you have some habits (like forgetting to switch off the gas stove/ iron/ geyser- make sure you get rid of the deadly habit SOON.

3. Shrink your bills (and your carbon footprint in the process)

When people think of going green, they often think it takes solar panels or a hybrid car to make a difference. Not so – It just takes a little old-fashioned common sense.

The best place to start is by cutting your energy usage in your home:

  • Switch off the lights when you leave a room and turn off your air conditioner when not in use.
  • Use compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) wherever possible.
  • Wait for the washing machine to be full before you run them.
  • Set your home computer to revert to sleep mode when not in use.
  • Close the tap/ shower when not in use (and that includes when you are brushing your teeth or applying soap!)

4. Work out a weekly system for keeping your house clean

Daily: Dishes need to be washed daily – no excuses! Dirty clothes go in the laundry bag / washing machine and clean clothes are hung in the closet. Bring everything back to its assigned place.

Weekly: Clean your entire house, using these tips:

  • Keep all of your cleaners, as well as rubber gloves and spare cleaning cloths – in a portable carryall that moves with you from room to room.
  • Stash cleaning implements such as a toothbrush, scraper, sponge, a few cleaning cloths and plastic bags in a builder’s apron that you wear when you clean. Hook your glass cleaner and all-purpose cleaning spray on the loops to keep your hands free as you work around the room clockwise, cleaning from high (cabinets) to low (floors.)
  • For optimum efficiency, enlist the help of your family. If you can, divide the jobs among at least three parties: One of you can do the dusting/vacuuming and changing beds, the other can do the bathroom cleanup, leaving only the kitchen and trash emptying for you to handle. The upside? You can get the whole house done in 45 minutes, leaving more time on the weekends for the movies.

5. Get your place ready for entertaining

Each year most of us vow to spend more time with family and friends. To make you feel like inviting people in, why not give the areas you entertain in a little update?

You don’t have to spend a lot on this- all it takes to get a fresh new look is a little bit of rearranging and a few updates.

One easy update that makes your home seem more “finished” is the addition of plants as they bring in new energy and help clean the air. It’s also a great way to decorate if you’re on a budget.

Pulling out a new accent color from your existing decor can make the whole room seem fresh. Pick an underused color in the room and add more of it in the form of a new cushion / a colourful rug or runner to update your look.

Lastly, take some time to rearrange your furniture so it is oriented in conversation groups and not just facing the television. That just might up for chances for real conversation and connection in the New Year.

So – What is your home improvement resolution(s) for 2014?

The Paradox of today’s time

Posted on by admin in Article | Leave a comment

Where our telephones (read mobiles) and laptops are getting smaller but time spent on it is getting longer

Where in the middle of coffee with a friend, we spend more time interacting with Facebook friends

FB-logout

Where we are stuck in traffic jams on our way to the gym where we exercise on stationery cycles

Where we put more importance to how we “look” rather than how we “feel”

Where our bank accounts are getting bigger but our hearts are getting smaller

Where our houses might be getting bigger but the people in it are becoming lesser

Where the world is getting smaller but distances between people wider

At such a time, it becomes more important for us to design a neighborhood which encourages community living and happiness.

The Beginnings : back to the roots

Posted on by admin in Mr. Nikhil Thard's Articles | Leave a comment

I strongly believe that one’s business roots are its life-support system. And your business is a part of you, a part of your life, so these business-supporting roots will overlap significantly with your own personal life-support system.

big_oak_tree

My grandfather – Shri Baijnathji Thard made Tinsukia (Assam) his home 80 years ago and planted the seeds of the revival and flourishing of the Thard family there. Today the Thard group which virtually started from this very location is doing business in excess of 500 Crores and moving to a 1000 Cr group player worldwide. The genesis and the foundation was laid in this very piece of land.

As a tribute to not only my grandfather but also the town where my whole family grew up, I chose to create a landmark- a world class ecosystem, which will define the whole town and will be my gift to it. We are creating an ecosystem which is the need of the hour and will cater to the hardworking women and their kids – where kids can learn and express while their mothers can find their space which they can call their own.

In keeping with our spirit of motivating entrepreneurship, we are also empowering a new entrepreneur and creating an ecosystem where we empower people to change their lives and therefore their society. It also seeks to respect and facilitate the very professional and hardworking business community of the town.

In all of us there is a hunger, deep within, to know our heritage — to know who we are and where we came from. Without this enriching knowledge, no matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness.”I am in business because of my roots in Tinsukia and also find strength to sustain myself to keep growing every day. In every conceivable manner, family is the link to our past and bridge to our future.  In a changing world, it’s inspiring to feel that unbroken connection to our ancestors reaching back through history.

We are naming this landmark “BT Edifice” where BT stands for Baijnathji Thard and also Banwarilal- Thard (My father)

As Heidi Swapp puts it succinctly:

“Generations pass like leaves fall from our family tree. Each season new life blossoms and grows benefiting from the strength and experience of those who went before.”

Through BT Edifice, we hope to encourage people to give back to the roots.

WILD LIFE AROUND BANGALORE

Posted on by admin in About Bangalore | Leave a comment

Bangalore is also known as the Garden City of India, then how could we not discuss about the wild life around the city. Bangalore’s reputation as the Garden City of India began in 1927 with the Silver Jubilee celebrations of the rule of Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV. Several projects such as the construction of parks, public buildings and hospitals were instituted to improve the city.

Listed are few Wildlife Sanctuaries or National Parks near Bangalore.

Bandipur National Park:

Bandipur National Park Bangalore

 Bandipur was the chosen site for Project Tiger. This is an initiative taken by the Government of India to protect the endangered species. The number of tigers has increased ever since. The place is also home to a large number of animals like Elephants, Hornbill, Sambar, Wild Dog, Giant Squirrel, Deer, and Partridges. There are also a few endangered species including Four Horned Antelope, Panther, Sloth Bear, Python, Mouse Deer, Pea Fowl and many more.
