Utilities expense will depend on building type and design, climate, and on the form of lease. Categories of cost include energy costs electricity, natural gas and fuel oil as well as service and consumption charges for water, sewer, and fire protection which may be customary in the locality. Historically, tenants have been expected to pay their own electric bills, but increasingly in recent years, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are being designed also to permit direct charges to tenants. In older buildings, the systems may be fully centralized. Since tenants tend to resist allo
You thought it took bricks and wood and nails and cement to build a house, right It does, of course, but it also takes lots of paper. Building construction, residential (houses and apartments) and non-residential (pretty much everything else) alike, is regulated in most parts of the country. The regulations are in place to provide for safe and, in recent years, more energy-efficient construction. A building code is a regulation that provides minimum standards relating to construction, electrical, plumbing, and safety materials and practices and energy-efficient items such as insulation. Building codes are adopted and administered at the local (village, town, city, and county) level.

A tax deduction is something you can deduct from an investment property's income to reduce your taxes. A tax credit is something you can deduct from the taxes you owe. The federal and sometimes state governments create programs that permit tax credits or deductions to encourage certain activities with respect to investment properties. Historic preservation and energy efficiency are the kinds of things the government periodically tries to encourage. Within certain limits, property owners are permitted to deduct the interest payments on their mortgage loans and local property taxes. Last year the government said you could deduct 3,000 for any work you did that increased the energy efficiency of your property. This year the government said you could take a 3,000 tax credit if you did the same kind of work. If the net income (gross income after expenses) of your building is 30,000 in each of those years, and you're in the 20 percent tax bracket, in which year are you better off
Jim found a property with twelve years of taxes owed. The property consisted of eighty acres of raw land located in a floodplain near a power plant. Most people would pass this property by, but Jim noticed that the property was not far from developed property and was zoned for industrial use. (Industrial zoning
Now for a number of reasons, our bid was not successful. In case you are thinking I should think not I don't want to hear of anyone buying well over 300 million worth of property for 15 million in one fell swoop, then take heart. In December of 1997, the property was reportedly sold to a partnership involving Credit Suisse First Boston for the princely sum of 25 million. They are now spending 75 million completely refurbishing the property (including, for instance, replacing all of the 8,000 panes of glass with dual-pane, energy-efficient reflective glass). But even so, it is a great deal, and a testament to my strategy that you can find properties that are selling for a fraction of their real value, if only you are willing to look for the extraordinary, for properties with a twist, for properties where by changing something around, you can reap huge benefits.
Since Jeff and Mary intended to live in the building. Lastly, new mechanical and electrical systems would permit equitable ap portionment of the utility costs as well as energy efficiency. They thought that apartments which had these characteristics would not only rent up faster, but would achieve premium rents. Jeff discussed these alternatives with Joel, who provided useful comparables for the rents which might be achieved for each unit. Joel was enthusiastic about the alternatives, and seemed eager to find tenants.

Nearly all utility companies will help you discover ways to reduce your gas or electric bills. Some will even perform a physical audit and inspection of your property. Others will provide booklets or brochures and perhaps a customer service department to answer specialized questions. You can also find dozens of articles and books at your local library that discuss energy conservation. Google energy audit or energy savings and you'll get more than enough ideas. Because each type of building construction and area of the country presents different problems and opportunities, seek information that fits your particular situation. Be aware, too, that site and window placement can increase or diminish your energy costs. In fact, energy audit a building before you buy it. Judge beforehand the extent to which you can feasibly reduce these costs. Avoid buying an energy glutton for which no practical solution exists.
