A Day in the Life of a Real Estate Salesperson

A real estate agent, as defined by Cambridge Dictionary, is a person whose business is to arrange the selling or renting of houses, land, offices, or buildings for their owners. While that is a technically accurate definition of a real estate agent, it doesn’t give an accurate description of what a real estate agent does on a day-to-day basis. Each day is unique and different for a real estate agent; while this can be an appealing aspect of the real estate profession, it can also offer unique challenges or opportunities, depending on the agent’s skill set. So, just what does a real estate agent do in a typical day?

Commercial real estate investors renewed appetite for debt

Despite the fact that many investors seem concerned about the potential for a Labour government after Thursday’s election there is a growing appetite for debt amongst UK commercial real estate investors. According to a report out today, more than 50% of UK commercial property loans were made on a loan to value ratio of 65% or more. This compares to a figure of 35% in the previous six-month period suggesting that demand for UK commercial real estate is still very strong. While this demand is unlikely to reduce in the short to medium term there is some concern that the loan to value ratios, last seen just prior to the 2008 mortgage crisis, could cause problems in the future. So, why are so many UK commercial real estate investors happy to borrow on such high risk terms and why are financial operations happy to take on these arrangements?

UK regions lift European real estate prices

European commercial property prices grew by a record 7.8 per cent in the fourth quarter of last year, fuelled by the ongoing recovery in the UK’s regional property markets.Figures out yesterday by property adviser DTZ show that prices rose by 20 per cent for the year overall thanks to a record last quarter, when investors splurged €65bn (£47.4bn) on European commercial property.The strongest growth was in the UK regions, which increased by 35 per cent compared to a year ago.Nigel Almond, the head of Capital Markets Research said: “Prices outside of London in the UK only began to show clear signs of recovery at the beginning of 2014, having fallen by close to 50 per cent from their peak in 2007. As a result prices are still 25 per cent below their peak and back at 2004 levels.”Central London also performed strongly, up 23 per cent year-on-year. However, Almond said the rate of growth was beginning to cool. Prices in London rose by just five per cent in the fourth quarter compared with eight per cent in the third quarter.“The cooling comes as no surprise as prices in London are now 20 per cent above their previous peak in 2007,” Almond added.

Why UK commercial real estate is still hot property

But political risks are rising – whether the Conservative Party or Labour win next May. If we take the temperature of investors in commercial property right now, we would find warm support for the sector in the UK. In a low interest rate environment, and with returns from property far outstripping bond yields, commercial real estate has returned to favour. The UK commercial property market has performed strongly in 2014, with the sector returning 14 per cent during the first nine months of this year, according to the IPD UK Monthly Property Index. Capital values have also recovered by 28 per cent from their trough, although they are still 29 per cent below their excitable 2007 peak. But will this upward trajectory for commercial property continue in 2015, and does the sector offer good prospects for investors?
