Jared Londry Discusses Custom Commercial Real Estate Building Practices

Jared Loundry Commercial Real EstateThe custom construction industry is often tasked with handling building projects designed to achieve a very specific set of goals, and those goals can vary widely depending on whether the custom construction project is for a residential property or a commercial property. Custom residential projects obviously depend mostly on matters of personal preference, but custom commercial building projects often depend on what is believed to be most likely to create the greatest degree of profit potential.

In the overwhelming majority of cases, custom builders would be wise to adhere to the views expressed by Jared Londry regarding commercial real estate value, as the broker has been principally involved in some of the most universally praised commercial real estate deals in recent memory. Whether it is the prime commercial real estate property located in Barclay Downs or the multiple office buildings sold for $39.5 million in Fort Mill, South Carolina, Londry’s expertise is clearly so highly sought after for good reason.

In discussing custom building projects designed for commercial use, Londry seems to be a proponent of the idea that the most critical factor influencing the value of commercial real estate — other than market demand, of course — is the building’s potential productivity in terms of generating income. Perhaps this is why custom projects have become increasingly appealing in a number of areas, as those seeking custom construction for commercial use have their own system of beliefs when it comes to designing a building for generating the greatest possible degree of income productivity.

Nick Alsis: Increasing Focus on Infrastructure Needs Has Construction Industry Poised for Growth

construction343535It seems as though the need for addressing the nation’s infrastructure is beginning to get the attention it so desperately needs, with presidential candidates on both sides of the aisle routinely including references in their stump speeches to restoring the basic systems that are so critical to daily life. Nick Alsis believes that this increased attention bodes quite well for the construction industry, as it is quite clear that the public recognizes just how necessary it is for the nation’s infrastructure to be addressed before even greater issues begin to arise.

Given that the construction industry is already enjoying increasing growth on a nationwide basis, there is already some concern that there will be a need to recruit more professionals into all levels of the construction industry if current and future demand is going to be met. As Nick Alsis points out, this is a problem that most industries would love to have and it is also one that should not be all that difficult to address before the massive industry growth begins in earnest.

Slaske Builders - Ralph Slaske

Arturo Alvarez Demalde Begins Construction On New Home

Arturo Alvarez Demalde has selected the plot where his new home will be planted. Construction began on Friday on is expected to take 4-6 months including all landscaping, drainage, permits, fire inspection, etc. There are plenty of hoops to jump through!

Why did you choose Ralph Slaske of Slaske Builders to build this new home?

I met with Ralph Slaske and then met with a few other builders in the area. Without a doubt Slaske was better than the rest. He was more knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions in a way that I understood and made sense to me. One of the other builders literally told me he didn’t have time to answer any questions. I spent a total of 10 minutes with him and half of that was waiting for him to get off the phone. When I was with Ralph, I really felt that nothing else was going on, anything I asked was his top priority.

What was of paramount concern when choosing a builder?

Obviously price is a big part. When you’re building a custom home, it’s easy to get caught up in price per square foot. Just taking that metric, you can build a very big, but cheap house. I wanted a blend of affordable and upgrades. I told Slaske what was important to me and he understood. His proposal spelled out each aspect I cared about. One thing that is important to me are finishing touches. I wanted to pick out my baseboards, window and door trim as well as the sheen on the cabinets. After saying that I realized that I might be a little picky! At the end of the day, it’s my money and I want to get what I want and Slaske enabled me to do that.

What can Ralph Slaske and Slaske Builders do to improve?

One of the most difficult parts of this process was finding the right piece of property. I want neighbors, but not too close. I wanted an acre or two, but didn’t want a house 25 feet away from my property line. That meant I had to find a lot with existing homes. I talked to Ralph after I had located a few lots I liked and he actually toured them with me and helped me pick out the one that was best for my needs as well as best for construction. My favorite lot sat a little lower in elevation that the homes around it and could have been underwater if we built on my chosen spot! Ralph gave me options to backfill the whole area or pick a new lot. His understanding and experience was invaluable during this process!

Thank you Arturo Alvarez Demalde for taking the time to give us your thoughts!
