  • Taking advantage of trees: nature’s air conditioners

    Plants absorb heat as they transpire, provide shade that reduces solar radiation and reflection, can reduce or increase wind speed, and also increase fog precipitation and snow deposition. In summer, trees provide comfortable surroundings by intercepting direct solar radiation and re-radiation from heated surfaces. The temperature change can be dramatic when simply moving away from the sun into shade.

  • Property managers think twice about retail security improvements

    In the commercial real estate industry, so much time is spent concentrating on the safety of buildings that it is often forgotten to consider personal safety as well. Economic woes and job uncertainty tend to increase the potential for crime, theft and other fraud.

  • Benchmarking income and expense data helps buildings perform better

  • Help others dress for success by donating to BOMA's suit and accessory drive

  • As real estate companies downsize, so does office space

    A wide range of residential and commercial real estate and real estate-centered firms -- such as title and escrow companies -- have either made significant cutbacks or disappeared completely in recent years. Whether or not this trend will continue is open for debate.

  • Now is a good time to enter commercial real estate, experts say

    With consolidations and office shrinkage still going on, now may not seem like a very good time to get into the commercial real estate business. Then again, if you can make it during this trough, you may be riding the crest of a wave in a couple of years.

  • Vacancy rates projected to decline

    It has been called a "jobless recovery" and while not entirely true, companies have definitely become more economical with their space.


  • Industry leaders anticipate number of deed recordings to climb

    Deed recordings in San Diego County may reach 800,000 this year, indicating that there might never be a better time to buy a commercial building. And while expansions are planned in the biotechnology and high technology sectors, the timetable as to when this occurs may not be clear.
