9:00 – 10:15: Increasing the Value of Your Building Through Reinvestment
Moderator Michael Vinocur, President of Building Equity Management, talks with our panel of landlords--whose portfolio sizes range from 16 units to over 1000 units--about the case for continued reinvestment in one’s own properties. From small cosmetic upgrades to major renovations, the panel will discuss why giving up some cashflow now, and plowing that money back into what you already own, is a sure path to wealth generation over the long run.
Panelists will be asked to candidly share their financial rational for such investments. Is there a minimum return they must see? Are there certain intangibles that they can use to rationalize making some improvements such as better tenant longevity and fewer maintenance issues downstream?
Among the varied sub-topics we hope to discuss will be:
With cash in the bank earning near 0% and with commercial mortgages available for well under 4%, why not put your money to work in your own building when you can often make double digit returns?
Moderator: Michael Vinocur, Building Equity Management
10:15 - 10:35: The Economics of a Solar System in NYC
