3rd Annual Coats and Boots Program in Loveland

Friday, Nov 08, 2019


LC Real Estate Group was overjoyed with the 3rd Annual Coats and Boots program this year!

Every year, LC Real Estate Group members raise money and awareness for a program that provides warm winter coats and boots to Loveland Elementary School students across the city. The program is to help out families that may not be able to afford warm clothing for their children, The ultimate goal is to help out those in need and improve the community in which we live – meeting LC Real Estate Group’s mission to mindfully create community.

LC Real Estate Group has already provided more than 250 coats and pairs of boots to schools in need. The program partners with JAX Mercantile and Scheel’s for merchandise. Schools that are part of the program are chosen because they have a larger portion of low-income families, and teachers at the schools work to coordinate with parents to identify children with the greatest need.

The program has grown in the last couple years and LC Real Estate Group hopes to create a long-lasting impact in the community of Loveland for many years to come!

How can you help?

LC Real Estate Group always tries to improve funds and awareness for the Coats and Boots Program within the Thompson School District. Any help from individuals or Loveland Businesses is greatly appreciated!

Real Estate Investing - Understanding Cap Rate and CoC Return

Tuesday, Aug 06, 2019


As a real estate investor, you should always be considering the return on investment (ROI) on any investment property. This is usually pretty standard when performing an investment analysis on a real estate investment. However measuring ROI has gotten more sophisticated using Cap Rate and Cash on Cash Return.

Understanding the difference between Cap Rate and Cash on Cash Return, and how they are used for investment analysis can help you be better informed about investment decisions.

Cap Rate

Capitalization Rate is used to measure the overall profitability of a commercial investment property – and can be used to identify if an investment is risky or not. It measures the net income of a commercial property against the market value of the property. Higher cap rates indicate much higher risk but also higher profitability. In turn, a lower cap rate indicates lower risk, but also low potential profitability. The cap rate represents the natural rate of return on a property.

The formula for Cap Rate is fairly simple:

Capitalization Rate = Net Operating Income / Current Market Value of the Property

Net operating income is the expected annual income of the property minus any operating expenses of the building. Annual income will primarily come from rental income from tenants, and operating expenses include the upkeep of the building as well as property taxes. In some cases, you might use the Purchase Price of a property instead of the Current Market Value. However, this isn’t as popular as you might get unrealistic values for properties that were purchased some time ago.

Cap Rate is most useful for commercial property investors to compare different investments against each other measuring risk and return. Some investors might only consider properties that fall within a certain range in order to decide what good investments might be for their portfolio.

In addition, you can use Cap Rate to measure how a property is doing over time and whether or not the investment is improving or declining over time. An investor can measure cap rate year-over-year and decide whether to keep a commercial investment in their portfolio or not. If deciding to sell the property, cap rate can help determine value by comparing against other similar properties.

Cash on Cash (CoC) Return

Similar to Cap Rate, Cash on Cash Return can be used to evaluate whether or not an investment is improving. It measures the cash income earned against the cash invested in a property. A more simple way of thinking about this is it measures the annual income earned by a property in relation to the mortgage paid.

Cash on Cash Return is widely recognized as a good measure to use for ROI calculations on a commercial investment property. This is because it is both effective an easy to understand, and is useful for measuring real estate performance.

The formula for Cash on Cash Return is:

CoC Return = Annual Net Operating Income / Total Cash Investment

CoC Return is useful when debt is included in a real estate transaction (which is often the case for commercial real estate properties). In this case, the Cash on Cash Return will be different than the standard ROI calculation. It can be useful as a forecasting tool for setting targets of earnings and expenses for a property.

Water and Power Department Approved to Buy Land Near Wastewater Treatment Plant

Thursday, Jul 11, 2019


The City of Loveland’s Water and Power Department has received approval to buy 9.1 acres of land north of the wastewater treatment plant on Boise Avenue.

The idea behind the approval is that the Water and Power Department wants to purchase the land to prevent residential development and resell it for other purchases. If used for residential housing, the city is worried there may be complaints from odor with proximity to the plant. Originally, the idea was to build a tiny-house community of affordable housing on the land.

West Side of Greeley Prime for Real Estate Growth

Wednesday, Jul 10, 2019


The City of Greeley has identified the west side of the city for high-potential growth for commercial investments. This is good news for commercial investors with future plans for shopping districts or commercial growth.

The west side of Greeley is attractive for many reasons, most of all the proximity to the I-25 corridor which has seen exponential growth in the last few years. Because of this, the competition for retail space is high in this area. The report places Greeley’s vacancy rate below 2 percent with rates projected to drop even further with increases in rent rates. The city will likely pursue growth opportunities in the coming years much more aggressively with growth projected by the U.S. Census at 142 percent through 2023.

In contrast, the east side of Greeley is projected to have flat growth or even lose residents as the town growth moves towards the west. Average household incomes on the west side of town range from $14,600 to $58,200.

The report commissioned by the city cited a report that shows high demand in west Greeley for furniture stores, electronics stores, groceries, gasoline, clothing stores, sporting goods outlets, restaurants, and more. This high demand for retail growth makes this area the perfect investment opportunity for commercial property in Northern Colorado.

LC Real Estate Group can help investors explore opportunities in this area both by developing commercial real estate strategy and brokering real estate deals. Contact us to learn more about commercial opportunities in Northern Colorado!

5 Questions to ask when finding the ideal office space in Northern Colorado

Tuesday, Jun 18, 2019


The process of finding the perfect commercial office can be challenging. Once you’ve figured out a few spaces to look at, here are just a few questions you can ask yourself to help direct your final decision.

What are the nearby local businesses?

The ideal office space has regular amenities that are nearby that employees are able to use. This increases the attractiveness of your space if there are nearby restaurants, grocery stores, shopping centers, breweries and more. It makes it easier for employees to run errands and socialize when not on work time, which is always desirable for employees.

How easy is the commute for in-town and out-of-town?

Sometimes, finding quality recruits depends on the ease of commute to your office space. The easier it is for employees to get to your office, the happier they will be. Ease of access to major Highways or I-25 is important, as well as having multiple ways for people to commute to work. Look for access to nearby bike paths, bus routes, and more.

Is the building energy-efficient?

Not only is this important for the image of the company, but it is also important because monthly costs are directly impacted by how environmentally friendly and efficient the building operates. Business owners and employees tend to be much happier when they work in a space that is well-designed and energy-efficient.

Does the building have the utilities to meet your needs?

One of the absolute necessities for any business these days is internet speeds. Depending on your type of business, you might need lots of bandwidth for running your own servers, video conferencing, and other needs. These days, there’s really no excuse for any office space not to have adequate fiber connections for the entire building.

What other businesses or real estate are adjacent?

When you move into a new office you want to make sure that the area will be commercially successful – especially if your business relies upon foot traffic or visibility for success. The more successful the adjacent businesses are, the greater chance your business will be successful too. In addition, more adjacent space means you have the opportunity to grow your business in the future without relocating.
