Check out some commonly asked questions regarding all things commercial real estate.
Are you thinking about buying or leasing a commercial real estate property? An offering memorandum (OM) can be a helpful tool to guide your decision-making process. It’s a document that provides all the juicy details about the property, including its location, size, age, condition, and features. Plus, you’ll get the inside scoop on the surrounding neighborhood and current market conditions.
But an OM isn’t just about the property itself. It also includes information on the terms of the sale or lease, like the price, length of the lease, and any special provisions or requirements. And to top it all off, you’ll find financial projections like estimates of the property’s income and expenses, so you can see if it’s a viable and potentially profitable investment.
OMs are commonly used in commercial real estate transactions, especially when a broker or other intermediary is involved. So if you’re in the market for a new property, don’t hesitate to ask for an OM. It’s a great way to get a clear and comprehensive understanding of the property and the terms of the deal.

A BOV, or “broker opinion of value,” is a professional assessment of the market value of a commercial real estate property. It’s typically prepared by a licensed real estate broker or agent who has expertise in the local market and the property type in question.
A BOV is usually requested by a property owner or investor who wants to get a better understanding of the current value of their property or a property they are considering buying. It can also be useful for lenders, who may use a BOV to help determine the collateral value of a property when considering a loan.
To prepare a BOV, a broker will review relevant market data, such as recent sales of similar properties in the area, and consider factors that could impact the value of the property, such as its location, size, age, condition, and any unique features or amenities. They will then provide an estimated range of value for the property based on this analysis.
While a BOV is not a formal appraisal, it can be a helpful tool for property owners and investors to get a general sense of the value of their property and make informed decisions about whether to buy, sell, or hold onto a property. So, if you’re curious about the value of your commercial real estate property, consider requesting a BOV from a licensed broker or agent. They’ll be happy to provide you with a professional assessment and help you make informed decisions about your property.

A video offering memorandum (VOM) is a marketing tool that combines a video presentation with a written offering memorandum (OM) to provide detailed information about a commercial real estate property that is being offered for sale or lease.
One unique aspect of a VOM is the use of Google Earth animation, which allows the viewer to see the property from a bird’s eye view and get a sense of the surrounding area. The animation can be a helpful way to showcase the property’s location and any nearby landmarks or points of interest.
In addition to the Google Earth animation, a VOM typically includes a video tour of the property, highlighting its key features and amenities. The video may be narrated by a representative of the property owner or brokerage, or it may simply be a visual tour of the property. The VOM may also include a written OM, which provides additional information about the property, such as its location, size, age, condition, and any unique features or amenities.
Video offering memorandums can be a useful tool for property owners and brokers to showcase a property to potential buyers or tenants in a more dynamic and engaging way. They can also be helpful for potential buyers or tenants, as they can get a better sense of the property’s layout, features, and location through the video tour and Google Earth animation.
Video offering memorandums can be accessed through a variety of platforms, such as a company’s website, YouTube, or Vimeo, and can be shared easily through email or social media.
