To expand its property base in targeted thriving markets, Gladstone Commercial Corporation (GOOD – Free Report) shelled out $13.6 million in total for purchasing two industrial assets in Jacksonville, FL and Fort Payne, AL.
The acquisition comes as part of GOOD’s strategy of expanding on the buyouts of functional assets in thriving industrial locations, which are leased to tenants with solid credit profiles.
However, reflecting broader market concerns, shares of Gladstone Commercial declined 1.82% to $16.69 during Friday’s regular trading session.
Gladstone Commercial purchased the Jacksonville asset in a sale/leaseback transaction with twenty years of remaining absolute NNN term. The other asset, which is in Fort Payne, was acquired through a UPREIT transaction and carries 14.8 years of residual NNN term.
The addition of these mission-critical industrial facilities in growth markets has helped GOOD improve the weighted average lease term and increase its industrial concentration. This is likely to help the company generate stable revenues for a long period.
Gladstone Commercial is currently focused on expansions. From the beginning of the year through Aug 31, 2022, the company shelled out $83.9 million as the total cost for the acquisition of 988,303 square feet of industrial real estate. These consisted of nine properties and five tenants with an average remaining lease term at acquisition of 9.1 years.
Moreover, Gladstone Commercial has been witnessing active leasing, aiding solid occupancy, healthy rental collections and ample liquidity to back its acquisitions and growth efforts. As of Aug 31, 2022, Gladstone Commercial’s portfolio occupancy was 96.9% due to successful leasing activities. The company collected 100% of the August cash base rent. The healthy levels of rental receipts have enabled GOOD to maintain its dividend rate.

Real estate remains India’s preferred asset class with nearly 50 per cent of customers expecting prices to increase and the economy to grow, said a survey’s report on Monday.
The survey by Housing.com and National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO) found that 47 per cent of respondents prefer to invest in real estate. As many as 21 per cent of respondents prefer to invest in the stock market, 16 percent in fixed deposits and 15 per cent in gold. It found that 48 percent of respondents anticipate real estate prices to rise.
“India’s residential market has seen a sharp revival in demand after the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. The rising cost of borrowing, increase in input costs and strong demand has resulted in a rise in housing prices,” said Dhruv Agarwala, group chief executive officer, Housing.com, PropTiger.com & Makaan.com.
Housing demand is expected to remain strong in the coming quarter on the back of strong consumer sentiment and the seasonal uplift in the festival season, he said.
Homebuyers are cautious but optimistic about the economic scenario, said the survey. Seventy-three percent of respondents feel that the economy would continue to grow. While global uncertainties have moderated the outlook, the sentiment regarding the economy remains well above the dip recorded in 2020.
The income outlook has reached an all-time high of 65 per cent since 2020. Strong services activity, optimistic hiring scenario and a stable unemployment rate have bolstered consumer confidence in their future earnings, said the report that surveyed a thousand respondents in the real estate market about Delhi NCR, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai, and Kolkata.
“The residential markets across India remain upbeat despite growing concerns about rising interest rates. The stronger sales momentum anticipated in the coming months and quarters stems from the fact that property remains the best asset class as the latest Consumer Sentiment Outlook (Jul-Dec 2022) suggests that real estate has remained a favourite asset class among potential buyers,” said Rajan Bandelkar, president of NAREDCO. People’s desire to own a home and their goal for financial security has strengthened housing sales over the past two years.
This festive season will likely bring more deals favouring first-time homebuyers. With users remaining confident about the economy, the real estate sector will likely register a remarkable quarter, said Bandelkar.
The survey said that despite the hikes in property prices and interest rates, homebuyer sentiment will be positive in 2022.
“As for the repo rate, while the hike was imminent, it remains below the pre-pandemic levels of 5-6 percent. The confidence in future earnings coupled with the pandemic-induced importance of homeownership will continue to drive residential sales not only in the top metros but also in the Tier-II cities,” said Ankita Sood, head of research at Housing.com, PropTiger.com & Makaan.com.

PHILADELPHIA – Adjusting your basis in a rental property can lower the tax you owe when you sell it. For example, if you bought your rental property for $120,000, plus $3,000 for legal fees and $10,000 for capital improvements and financed it for ten years, and you built a fence on your neighbor’s property, your basis will be reduced to $134,400. You’ll pay $13,000 in taxes, not including additional taxes collected by the state.
Whether you’re selling your primary residence or a rental property, there are strict rules regarding capital gains taxes. Capital gain is the amount you make from selling a property after deducting the original purchase price and any major improvements. You must calculate this amount and pay it to the federal and state governments.
The standard capital gain tax is 15%, but you may have to pay more if you’re over a certain income level. That’s because you’ll have to pay Medicare tax on top of the tax on the capital gain. You can calculate how much you’ll owe based on the sale price and the expenses you’ve made, such as major renovations.
The amount of capital gain you have to pay depends on how long you have owned the property. If you’ve held the rental property for more than one year, you may have to pay a higher tax rate. However, the tax rate is lower for long-term capital gains than for short-term ones.
The first step in determining your adjusted basis when selling your rental property is its original cost. This is the cost you paid for the property when you bought it or built it. The adjusted basis will be equal to this amount less any casualty loss amounts and any other decreases in value. You also have to include mortgage proceeds.
In some cases, you can claim an exclusion for the loss on the sale of a rental property. For instance, if you buy an apartment building for $3 million and rent it out for two years, you can claim a loss of $14,909 or more.
In addition to the sale price, you also have to consider any selling costs, which will reduce your adjusted basis. These costs include commissions and advertising expenses. In addition to the costs associated with selling your rental property, depreciation on the property is included in the adjusted basis. If your property depreciates by $10,000 a year, your adjusted basis will be $353,000. Any additions or improvements to the property would also be included in the adjusted basis.
Tax-loss harvesting is a way to use capital losses to offset taxable investment gains. It is possible to harvest losses from a number of types of accounts, including IRAs, 401(k)s, and 529s. These accounts provide a tax force field that allows investors to deduct losses from their investments.
The IRS has rules to prevent taxpayers from gaming the system. These include the “wash-sale” rule, which prevents investors from claiming a taxable loss on an investment that has been held for more than 30 days. These rules also apply to spouses.
Tax-loss harvesting is a good way to reduce your tax bill. It means selling investments at a loss and using the money to offset other investments. You can use up to $3,000 of capital losses each year as a tax deduction and carry the rest to future years. This can turn a lost investment into a winner.
In order to qualify, you must sell your rental property before 2023. The capital gain you realized on the sale equals the difference between the cost basis and the sale price. In 2023, the capital gain is $305,000, which means you’ve made a $150,000 profit. You can use that money as an investment real estate loss tax deduction.
BIDEN’s tax reform
The Biden administration recently released its fiscal year 2023 budget blueprint, including several familiar tax reform proposals and brand-new initiatives. It also calls for the highest individual tax rate to increase to 39.6% and for well-off households to pay higher tax rates. These proposals could potentially increase the tax you pay when selling a rental property.
If you want to minimize the tax, you pay when selling your rental property, you should consider structuring the sale so that you can use installment plans to pay off your tax bill. The budget proposal offers options to help wealthy taxpayers spread the top-up payments over nine years. It also offers flexibility to those who lack the liquidity to pay in full. In addition, the Biden administration proposes a $50 billion measure for state housing agencies that allows states to increase the supply of affordable housing through tax-credit projects financed by passive activity bonds.
Biden’s budget also proposes eliminating the like-kind exchange loophole, which allows wealthy real estate investors to sell rental properties without paying tax on the realized capital gain in the year of sale. Biden’s budget also includes several other tax reforms that could significantly affect your personal tax bill. One of the new proposals in the budget proposes a broadening of recaptured depreciation deductions for many property types, including residential rental property, commercial real estate, warehouses, and structural components.
NEW YORK, Sept. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — New York-based HPP Real Estate, a division of Hill Property Partners LLC (HPP), is pleased to announce it has closed on the recapitalization of North Hill Apartments, a 148-unit multifamily rental property located in Virginia Beach, Va., just one year after purchasing the asset.
The recapitalization marks the first transaction between HPP and Machine Investment Group (MIG)—a real estate investment platform focused on opportunistic, distressed, and special situations across the United States—as the two companies look to form a strategic partnership to buy value-add properties throughout the country.
“We are very pleased to have accomplished this portion of our business plan for North Hill—to complete an institutional level recapitalization following the implementation of an asset repositioning program that included extensive on-site capital improvements and a rebranding strategy that resulted in a higher rent trajectory for the property,” said Griffin Hoffmann, Partner at HPP Real Estate. “Eric and the MIG team are experienced, dedicated and a pleasure to work with. Their institutional investment platform is a perfect complement to HPP’s platform; we are excited to continue our partnership together moving forward.”
HPP acquired the 126,936-square-foot property in September 2021 for $28,175,000. Following the purchase, HPP embarked on a significant multimillion-dollar capital improvement program that included a full rebranding of the property; the addition of a state-of-the-art fitness center; and a renovation of the facility’s pool area, a revamped dog park, gut renovations of individual units, and additional updates throughout the property. HPP also retained Greystar to manage the property. As a result, HPP has realized rent increases of 25-plus percent property wide in less than 12 months. Renovations at the property are expected to be completed in Q4 of 2022.
The new joint venture plans to complete the value-add program that has been implemented and continue to reposition the asset into a class A rental community in the desired Hilltop submarket of Virginia Beach, Va. just minutes from the beach.
“The closing of this transaction with MIG marks the successful realization of HPP’s strategy to combine the depth of our GP family office-based capital structure with top tier institutional level LP investment partners”, added Mitchel Hill, Managing Partner at HPP Real Estate.
“HPP’s operational experience, creativity and professionalism made them an excellent partner to team up with on the recapitalization of North Hill Apartments. The institutional quality of this multi-family asset and HPP’s plans for it fit nicely within our fund as we continue to deploy capital across the U.S,” said Eric Rosenthal, co-founder and managing partner of MIG. “We look forward to working with HPP on future transactions in the near term.”
HPP is seeking to make significant GP and Co-GP investments in the near term with a target investment range per transaction of between $1.5 to $10 Million in GP capital, while MIG recently announced the closing of Machine Real Estate Fund I with approximately $350M in primary and co-investment capital to identify value-add and opportunistic investments across all commercial asset classes and capital stack positions.

As India eyes another possible rate hike following the US Federal Reserve’s anticipated moves this week, the Indian rupee is bobbing just shy of the key psychological level of INR 80 to the US dollar.
While this is not great news if you are an Indian importer, for expatriates in the GCC, analysts agree the time may be ripe to consider property investment back home.
The Indian rupee is trading at 79.65 against the US dollar on Tuesday morning.
This indeed is a good time for Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) to take advantage of the depreciated rupee as well as the growing real estate market in India, said Kunal Chawla, Chief Investment Officer at the Dubai DIFC-based Finmark Capital Ltd.
“If you study rupee over the long term, you will find that after every depreciation rupee consolidates for a long period before any new downward slide, and if that holds true this time as well, then you have a good level of entry at INR 80 per USD,” he told Zawya.
According to a recent report by real estate advisory 360 Realtors, NRI investments in the real-estate sector accounted for $13.1 billion in 2021 and are projected to grow by 12% in 2022.
Chawla said there are other reasons as well to consider property investment in India right now, including the relatively poorer performance of other asset classes and a simplified tax regime where “any capital appreciation is taxed at 20% flat post indexation when held for over two years.”
Ramesh Ranganathan, CEO (Residential) of K Raheja Corp., K Raheja Corp., an Indian developer, told Zawya recently that NRIs in the GCC have played a very large role in terms of investment back home.
He also observed that the ongoing pressure on the rupee has sped up decision-making among investors.
However, he added that it was not only the weaker rupee that has led to recent rise in property buying; there have been “…other structural changes like a stamp duty waiver, which really created a greater level of momentum for transactions going through, though this was more specific to the state of Maharashtra.”
While the evolution of a post-Covid remote workstyle has led to a slight shift from traditional metros, NRI investments do tend to focus on urban centres. “While more than 56% of all real estate investments by NRIs are made in Delhi-NCR, Bengaluru is second with 22% and Mumbai is third with 11%,” India-based real estate developer DLF said in a recent report.
Chawla believes that India’s status as one of the fastest-growing economies in the world in 2022 and the likelihood it will remain among the top growth economies for the entire decade are also key factors in the investments.
“This would support the case for growth across segments, from the lower end of the spectrum, with greater inclusions from government schemes to middle income [segments] who are seen to be migrating to high-rise buildings and ultra-luxurious sought-after properties, from Jor Bagh in Delhi to Pali Hill in Mumbai,” he said.
Although Fitch Ratings last week trimmed its growth forecast for the Indian economy to 7% in 2022–23 from 7.8%, the growth projection is still high when compared to its global GDP forecast of 2.4%, down from 2.9% in 2022.

VIETNAM, September 15 – HCM CITY – Amid a new wave of investors arriving in Việt Nam to explore its opportunities for foreign businesses, HCM City has strong potential to attract investment and drive innovation and sustainable growth, experts said.
HCM City is well-positioned to attract the lion’s share of the new wave of investors if it manages to mitigate a looming capacity shortage in terms of industrial land, office space, commercial real estate, and skilled labour, said Leif Schneider, vice chairman of Legal Sector Committee of the European Chamber of Commerce in Việt Nam.
HCM City continuously rakes in the highest figures of foreign investment, totaling US$3.74 billion last year, Schneider said at the Investment Support Forum and Review Conference of Investment Promotion Series held on Thursday in HCM City.
Three of the most important buzzwords for HCM City’s role in foreign direct investment (FDI) flows are digital, renewable and sustainable, he said.
One of the city’s greatest resources lies with its people. As foreign direct investment into HCM City gains sophistication, Việt Nam’s labour market will have to adapt to reflect the growing requirements in education and training.
Additionally, the city should continue its efforts to improve domestic infrastructure to support the absorption of increased trade and manufacturing activities.
Mary Tarnowka, executive director of the American Chamber of Commerce in Việt Nam, said, “Việt Nam is now one of the top destinations for FDI, both as companies seek to diversify their manufacturing supply chains and as they seek to target its own 100 million population and growing consumer class.”
“It is one of the fastest growing economies in the region, if not the world. It has a stable political environment, and a welcoming approach to FDI. It has a strategic location near source and consumer markets. It is integrated into a network of free trade agreements, from CPTPP and RCEP, the EVFTA and UKFTA, and now is part of the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework. And it has a young, relatively affordable tech-savvy workforce,” she said.
HCM City, a modern, dynamic city in the heart of Việt Nam’s Southern Key Economic Region, has all those advantages.
HCM City and the surrounding region is a top destination for multinational corporations seeking to diversify supply chains.
However, infrastructure gaps and lags in worker productivity could limit growth in Việt Nam generally and HCM City specifically.
The high cost of land in HCMC means a lot of manufacturing will move to nearby provinces, while HCM City needs to move up the value chain to focus on services, high-value manufacturing, and hopefully in the future, with the right regulatory environment and incentives, more international R&D centres.
HCM City needs the right urban planning and development policies to maintain its unique historic architecture and identity while facilitating its sustainable growth.
Tarnowka recommended that the investment climate be enhanced.
“The most important factor for a favourable investment climate is a fair, transparent, predictable, and streamlined regulatory environment that values innovation – not only to attract new investment, but also to maintain and grow investment already here,” she said.
“To ensure that HCM City’s manufacturing sector remains competitive and shifts to higher-value production, we encourage educational reforms, policies to promote supply chain localisation, investment in transportation and logistics infrastructure, actions to meet energy security and a clean energy transition, and increased incentives for high-tech investment and enhanced R&D capabilities,” Tarnowka said.
Seck Yee Chung, vice president of the Singapore Business Group, said that continued dialogue with investors, and fair, transparent, predictable, and efficient regulatory systems would help improve the investment environment in HCM City.
Ensuring smooth investment licence renewal and investment expansion approval, the upgrade and construction of infrastructure, master plans on logistics and warehouses, and digital infrastructure that allows for continuous cross-border data transfer and cybersecurity are all needed to improve the investment environment, he said.
Cao Thị Phi Vân, deputy director of the HCM City Investment and Trade Promotion Centre, said the city had many advantages to attract FDI flows, including a favourable geographic location, quality workforce and its leading position in manufacturing and high technology services.
She admitted that limitations in transportation infrastructure, logistics and workforce productivity needed to be addressed to improve the investment climate.
The city has attracted a total of 10,925 FDI projects worth US$78.3 billion from 115 countries and territories since 1988. – VNS
