Real Estate and Lease Accounting – Consolidating for ROI


ost organizations are looking for ways to take cost out of their

business processes by reducing the number of software plat- forms they’re using. One com- mon opportunity for consolida- tion is leased asset accounting and lease administration. Real estate leases and equipment leases are often managed in separate systems, leading to inconsistent data, audit risks, and higher costs. Bringing the two solutions together can drive ROI and cost savings. Here is an introduction to that process and a few consider- ations to keep in mind. Real estate and lease ac- counting consolidation com- bines real estate administra- tion and the financial im- pacts and transactions of your property portfolio, combining accounting information from multiple properties/assets into an integrated solution. This helps by: • Allows real estate ad -

ministrators to enter finan - cial information and process invoices without having to make accounting-significant decisions. • Ensuring compliance with Generally Accepted Account - ing Principles (GAAP). • Providing transparency to stakeholders. • Enabling easy comparison of results across entities and property location/sites. • Improving efficiency in financial reporting for your real estate portfolio. Real estate lease adminis- tration automates many of the tasks associated with manag- ing your real estate portfolio. An integrated solution can also share accounting-significant information and transactions

continued on page 14A Most real estate leases have many different clauses and terms that are relevant for accounting. Some of the key that originate through real estate tasks and actions. This information can be used by the accounting team to generate journal entries, perform finan - cial consolidation, and report- ing. For example, real estate lease administration software can help you manage property costs and invoices, calculate important financial metrics (such as lease obligations and straight-line rent expense), generate reports on demand or on a schedule, get portfolio analytics, and provide dash- boards for easy visualization of results.

East Windsor Medical Office Building meets 1031 Exchange requirement Fennelly Associates arranges $2.95 Million sale of 10,000 s/f property at 59 One Mile Road

AST WINDSOR, NJ — Fennelly Associates has negotiated the sale of a single-tenant, long-term leased 10,000 s/f medical of - fice building located at 59 One Mile Rd. in East Windsor for $2.95M. Fennelly Associates president Jerry Fennelly, SIOR , and corporate real es- tate specialist Patrick Din- trone, SIOR , represented the seller and Frank Gunsberg of Colliers International represented the buyer in the transaction. Located less than two miles from Exit 8 on the New Jer - E

sey Tpke., 59 One Mile Rd. is a two-story medical office building featuring 47 parking spaces. The building’s ideal location and favorable local demographics make it a perfect home for an office of Schweiger Dermatology, the largest der - matology practice in the region, with over 90 offices and more than 300 healthcare providers throughout New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Con - necticut. Long-term leased to a credit-grade tenant, the buyer recognized 59 One Mile Rd. as a favorable long-term investment to satisfy a 1031 exchange re -

quirement and worked closely with Fennelly Associates to negotiate a purchase. “The opportunity to acquire a fully-leased medical office building in the heart of the dynamic Mercer County mar - ket is rare,” said Fennelly. “In such a competitive market, it’s critical for sellers to work with an experienced team who can seamlessly and efficiently bring a property to the market and secure the highest fair market value.” In a separate transaction, Dintrone, SIOR, represented the seller, Altenburg Piano House, in negotiating the sale of 1911 Brunswick Pike in Lawrenceville. The buyer, Imagine Design Center, was represented by Melanie Elliot of The Melanie Elliot Real Estate Group . 1911 Brunswick Pike is a one-story, 4,015 s/f retail build - ing with ten on-site parking spaces. The property is also easily accessible to Rtes. 1 and 206 as well as I- 295 and pro - vides superior visibility to the Lawrenceville community. The seller, who previously operated a piano showroom at the property, selected Fennelly Associates as the exclusive brokerage firm for the property. Fennelly Associates then uti - lized a strategic marketing plan to attract prospective tenants to the property. The buyer took an interest in the property’s adaptability and will utilize the space to operate its offices and a showroom for their home remodeling business. “Across all asset classes, it’s important that users secure space that fits their unique needs and puts them in a posi- tion to succeed,” said Dintrone. “In this case, the buyer appreci- ated the property’s showroom capabilities as well as its visibil- ity along a highly-traffic route in Lawrenceville. We’re thrilled to have brought together two parties who were interested in getting a deal done and helping them achieve their respective real estate goals.” In a separate transaction, Fennelly Associates has negoti - ated the sale of 1911 Brunswick Pike in Lawrenceville.

Seminars Brought Nationally Known Presenters to Atlantic City On September 13 & 14, the Southern NJ Chapter of the Appraisal Institute held its 17 th Annual Seminars at the Shore at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City. The seminars featured Ted Whitmer, MAI, AI-GRS, who presented “Attacking and Defending an Appraisal in Litigation” on Wednesday. The following day, Randall Bell, PhD, MAI, and Michael Tachovsky, PhD, presented “Critical Thinking and Junk Science.”

President: Robert Klein, MAI, AI-GRS VP: Sherrie Lisa Galderisi, SRA, AI-RRS Treasurer: Maria Nucci, SRA, AI-RRS Secretary: Meghan Payne, MAI Directors: Steve Bartelt, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS Joshua D. Garretson, MAI, AI-GRS, AI-RRS

In “Attacking & Defending an Appraisal in Litigation,” Mr. Whitmer provided a framework and considerations for attacking and defending an appraisal in litigation. Common mistakes made in appraising and testifying concerning an appraisal were stressed. Various standards and ethical rules that are frequently misapplied or misunderstood were highlighted and explained. In addition, common tricks and how to prepare for tricks on cross-examination were identified, as well as answering hypothetical questions at trial. A case study was used to apply the Attacking & Defending Model. The “Critical Thinking & Junk Science” seminar included both principles and case studies for the appraisal professional. The three approaches to value (cost, income and sales comparison), coupled with complex issues set forth in USPAP AO-9 (cost, use and risk effects) established a solid valuation framework. Un- derstanding these complexities helps develop a credible opinion of value. While many of these issues are addressed throughout USPAP, professional literature and coursework, this course focused on them in a single framework.

Ted Whitmer, MAI AI-GRS CRE CCIM AQB is a Certified USPAP Instructor, served on the TALCB, and was vice chairman of the Board. Ted is a Certi- fied General Appraiser, licensed as a lawyer with the State of Texas and as a Real Estate Broker. He passed the Texas bar in 1988.

employees associated with Boards and other state and federal agencies. In addition to teaching, Ted has extensive experience in consulting including advising in cases with appraiser board enforcement, criminal fraud and civil liability issues. Past experience in consulting, teaching, serving on the TALCB, and having extensive knowledge of appraisal issues, theory and USPAP make Ted uniquely qualified to represent appraisers.

Shopping center offers abundant dining, shopping, and entertainment options U.S. Properties Group continues its forward progress at The Shoppes at Montage Mountain S © Google Inc.

Mountain has produced over 30,000 s/f of new tenants to benefit the continued growth in occupancy even through the pandemic issues. Dave & Buster’s has started construction on their big res- taurant concept of 19,336 s/f on - site at The Shoppes at Montage Mountain. Highly publicized as a leader in up-and-coming mar- kets, the area’s strong analytics drove them to the shopping center. Opening is slated by Spring of 2024. Gord Wiebe , managing di- rector of USPG states: “Moosic, PA continues its growth, and The Shoppes at Montage Moun- tain will continue to keep its one-of-a-kind destination a premier place to shop, dine and relax. We are partners and together are committed to the future success of this growing community. Nothing will ever replace the “brick and mortar” experience. Shoppers want the entertainment, the touch,

the feel, the excitement, and the personal assistance only a brick-and-mortar shop can bring. We at U.S. Properties Group are committed to the growth of our outdoor open-air centers as a first choice of loca - tion. We remain selective to keep the center stable and the retail mix vibrant. We want to fuel the local economy, while attracting guests to our center and the area.” Tim Todaro , senior leasing associate for USPG notes: “The leasing activity at The Shoppes at Montage Mountain continues to be successful. Lease renew - als and strong sales numbers exceeding pre-covid levels are generating plenty of activity and interest in the remaining spaces. We are working pro - actively to constantly attract lively retail offerings that make The Shoppes at Montage Moun- tain the place to shop, dine and entertain in the Moosic and surrounding area.” MAREJ

CRANTON, PA — The Shoppes at Montage Mountain continues its forward progress in economic development growth in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton market. The U.S. Properties Group (USPG) mantra of “being pre- pared, ready and adaptable” will be again challenged with the unfortunate closing of the Christmas Tree Shops nationwide. The Christmas Tree Shops at The Shoppes at Montage Mountain was one of the best performing stores in the 80-store chain. This said, Christmas Tree Shops owner - ship had various operating issues and are now in process of a full liquidation of all its stores and this location will close. The team at USPG has been planning for this exit with a robust campaign of initiatives to find the best tenant to fill this void and make the center more vibrant with a large traf- fic generator. USPG has been

engaged in discussions with major national tenants who have expressed interest. The proper fit and consideration of all alternative formats to fill the space will be used to enhance the shopping area. USPG’s solid, keen insight, and their 20-year track record of filling sub-anchor spaces will add to its millions of square feet already leased. The Shoppes and the sur- rounding area boast ongoing

growth, exceeding pre-pandem- ic sales and lease revenues. The future growth and potential are unlimited. The expanding retail tenant mix increases offerings in the local community and keeps the tax dollars in Moosic. The shopping center continues to supply the area with a great assortment of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment venues that consumers find at - tractive. In the last two years alone, The Shoppes at Montage

Ideal Realty Group, Rock Creek Property Group, and The Sigmund Cos. acquire four regional shopping centers in Dale City, Virginia

DALE CITY, VA — A Joint Venture of Ideal Realty Group, Rock Creek Proper- ty Group, and The Sigmund Companies has acquired four regional shopping centers in Dale City. for $52.8 million. Af - filiates of Ideal Realty Group, Rock Creek Property Group, and The Sigmund Compa - nies purchased the centers from an affiliate of Interstate Management Incorporated. The portfolio includes Center Plaza, Mapledale Plaza, For- estdale Plaza, and Glendale Plaza with a combined 470,000 s/f on 70 acres. The properties are all lo- cated less than three miles apart along Dale Blvd. in the greater Woodbridge, VA area. They have been a highly traf- ficked staple of the community for decades since being built starting in the 1970’s by the original designers of Dale City. Each center features a wide range of well-known necessity retailers, including national brands and local businesses.

shoppers to relax and gather • Security improvements in - cluding enhanced lighting and pedestrian friendly pathways • Identity and tenant signage upgrades • Enhanced landscaping Once the work is completed, the shopping centers will at- tract a broad new audience of regional and national retail- ers to lease the few remaining spaces. These improvements, coupled with the nationwide trend embracing work-from- home employment policies – make it easier for people to frequent brick and mortar re- tailers and increases demand for neighborhood serving retail space. “The hybrid work environ- ment is here to stay, and neigh- borhood retail centers are a direct beneficiary of this mega trend. Our partnership is very fortunate to have found such a critical mass of well-located centers which should see in- creasing demand from both retailers and customers in the

future, said Gary Schlager , principal with Rock Creek.” KLNB , one of the Mid-At - lantic region’s largest privately held CRE brokerage firms, has been assigned all retail leas- ing for the four properties and The Shopping Center Group has been retained for property management. KLNB has al - ready begun to actively market the centers to potential tenants that are excited to enter the growing market. “These four properties are extremely well located and an essential part of the Dale City and greater Woodbridge, VA community,” said KLNB principal Veronica Kamara. “Prospective tenants will love their location that enjoys over 100 thousand vehicles per day combined, a residential popula- tion of more than 120 thousand people within a three-mile radius, and an average house- hold income of $150 thousand a year. And the fantastic im - provements will only make it more appealing.” MAREJ

Scheduled to begin in Q1 2024, these improvements will touch virtually every exterior element and create a first-class shop - ping environment for the com- munity. Working with MV+A Architects , the renovations will include: • New paint and façade im - provements • Improved parking lots with sealcoating and restriping • Public congregation points for
