This handbook was created to save investors time and money and to avoid the potential pitfalls in purchasing commercial real estate, as well as give an overview of the due diligence process. If you're an investor looking to buy a triplex, an industrial building or a shopping center; a property/asset manager helping a client to purchase properties or a real estate broker looking to add to your knowledge base to help clients to invest, this information will be invaluable.
It is written in a concise pragmatic fashion as a real due diligence tool and is not intended as a voluminous textbook of information on the subject. It is based upon over 28 years of experience in the commercial real estate business and acquiring over 9 million square feet of office properties, from private and institutional owners. The information it contains is applicable to all commercial real estate investments.
The fundamentals remain the same whether you're buying apartment rental units, shopping centers or skyscrapers. We need reminding as much as we need learning.
There are many different aspects of an investment that require investigation. You need a reference tool to help you to remember the questions to ask, the places and problems to look for, and where to uncover the various potential trip wires and booby traps that can possibly cause you issues, as well as money, after you purchase the property. That's why I originally created this reference book, for my own benefit. There are just too many things to remember off the top of your head. I still refer to it regularly.

This is a great resource for beginner commercial real estate investors. It doesn't get into fine detail but it's great as an overall survey of the process. Where else can you get such information?
I was under the impression this was going to be helpful to a new beginner in this area. However, not knowing the inns and outs of the process it becomes A little bit harder to follow along. As my knowledge-based grows in time this may become more helpful. I do appreciate the help that people put in to help others.
