We’ve blogged recently about the improvements in lending conditions in for CRE. It appears that we’ll see more banks with available capital to lend on CRE. With loss provisions falling for the sixth straight quarter, banks are freeing up dollars for new loans. In addition, foreclosures have increased while the total amount of delinquent balances (delinquencies, foreclosures, and restructured loans) has decreased. Costar digs into the numbers in a recent article:  LESS DISTRESS: CRE Taking Less of Toll on Nations’ Banks .

New Kind of Mall?  – A quick article from RetailTrafficmag.com discusses a Czech developers mall concept that caters specifically to men. Check out the property’s Facebook page here.  I don’t read Czech, but judging by the photos he might be onto something. Over the holiday weekend, I’ll be putting together my wish list of retail categories and potential tenants…Developer and equity partner wanted.

Technology has changed the way we experience media, shop, and communicate with each other. Increasingly, it is at the expense of retailers and shopping center owners that lease to them. Now, some bricks and mortar retailers are fighting back. Retailers have begun to utilize technology to improve the physical shopping experience and increase sales both online and at the store.

Have a very happy and safe Independence Day!

A Change for 2011 December 30, 2010

Over the next few weeks our company is launching a re-branding effort that will include a new interactive company website; a new logo; and updated marketing materials including signs, flyers and all printed materials. These changes will launch on January 1, 2011 when GVA Kidder Mathews will change simply to, Kidder Mathews.

The reason for the change is that we have ended our affiliation with GVA Worldwide, and will operate as an independently run commercial real estate service company. While our look, feel and colors are a bit different, we remain the same company and will continue to provide full service real estate solutions.

More to come soon!
