Specialty Groups

Hotels

Investments in the hospitality industry such as hotel and resorts are unique due to the combination of real estate and business investment. Many attributes of a business are displayed together with a high capital outlay that is the norm in investment sales. Unlike standard properties, rentals of resort and hotel rooms have a short shelf life, as guests stay for as little as a day.

Rental rates can also vary widely during the year depending on festive seasons and local events. Also, unique to the hospitality world, is the level of management and staffing necessary to operate each facility. All of these factors can directly contribute to the value of the property, offering an intriguing and profitable potential for real estate investments.

NAI’s Hotel experts provide services covering the full range of hospitality property values including five-star, timeshare, mixed-use boutique hotels with retail and multifamily and convention centers.

Logistics

Corporations today are global and must optimize their supply chain to remain competitive. Once a focus only of larger corporations, the sophisticated regarding logistics has increased in the mid-cap and smaller companies. In short, more corporations look at their spend overall and transportation overwhelmingly is driving the location decisions.

A company’s transportation spend is on average 10-12 times more than rent. While it is important to be competitive with real estate pricing, a change of $0.05- $0.10 per SF per year is typically minuscule compared to the projected transportation savings of 15%-20% by completing a network study of a corporate supply chain.
