This book fills a gap in the existing resources available to students and professionals requiring an academically rigorous, but practically orientated source of knowledge about real estate finance. Written byÃ¿a bank vice-president who for many years has practiced as a commercial lender and who teaches real estate investment at university level, and an academic whose area of study is finance and particularly valuation, this book will lead readers to truly understand the fundamentals of making a sound real estate investment decision. The focus is primarily on the valuation of leased properties such as apartment buildings, office buildings, retail centers, and warehouse space, rather than on owner occupied residential property.
Dragons are fearsome, fascinating creatures and, as everyone knows, they are very rare indeed. Very few people have actually seen a real living dragon - as the chance of seeing one is extremely remote. One thing is for certain, as fascinating as dragons might be, no one wants one living on their estate. But there is one living on Jayden Cru's estate... and no one is happy! The shopkeepers aren't happy; the dragon is frightening customers away. Parents aren't happy; the dragon could hurt their children. The children aren't happy; the dragon is giving them nightmares. There's only one solution: the dragon has to go. So how do you get a dragon to leave? Especially as this dragon seems to have made himself at home. Jayden and his best friend Hodgepodge team up to make the dragon return home - wherever home might be. But the dragon isn't having any of it. This dragon is here to stay. Will Jayden and Hodgepodge be able to come up with a winning plan? Or will they be stuck with the dragon forever?
The nineteen-nineties have seen a massive rebirth of the real estate industry in China. Although ownership of Chinese land is in theory restricted to the State and to agricultural collectives, in practice the concept of the 'right to use' land has evolved into a system of real estate law with many parallels in the West, including such familiar elements as mortgages, leases, zoning, liens and taxation. The difference lies in procedural requirements, and it is in this practical area that prospective foreign investors in Chinese real estate will most appreciate this informative and very useful book.Taking into account the Land Use Purpose Control System that went into effect in China on January 1, 1999, the authors of this book fully explain such important components of real estate development and use as the following: planning requirements; qualifying to obtain a land use right; fee requirements; registration procedures; taxes affecting real estate; bankruptcy provisions affecting real estate; landlord/tenant rights and duties in commercial leasing.They provide clear guidance through the complex web of administration and regulation at every government level, including the important role of the agricultural collectives in the expanding urban fringes. They analyze the areas of unsettled law--for example, tenant default remedies--that might create significant concern for Western investors, and offer recommendations that avoid pitfalls.
