Development and Entitlement:

Charter One Realty Commercial brokers have helped many developers and developments navigate the sometimes complicated local development ordinances. It’s our relationships with the local companies that build a team to help navigate you and or your company through the process as efficiently as possible.  Our area is one of the fastest-growing areas in the State as well as the Nation so development is a large part of our local economy. Organizations such as the Southern Carolina Alliance which promote growth, development, workforce labor, and training and education embody the core principles that will guide us through the future of our regions.

Our brokers have a good understanding of the vision of the Southern Carolina Alliance and use that to guide them to think on a grander scale about the region as a whole and not just in one specific area.  It’s these principles that will help our region’s smart growth that our towns, counties, and citizens can be proud to call home.  Entitlement in our area can also be challenging with so much rural and agricultural land that lies in the path of commercial and industrial growth because of the Savannah port. Our brokers have extensive experience dealing with zoning changes, variances, annexations, and many other challenging entitlement issues.  Again, our local relationships are key to the success we have delivered to our clients in the past and will stand to benefit our clients in the future.

Commercial Investment Services:

Our Commercial Investment division offers to our clients a variety of local commercial investments that range from nationally recognized companies to local companies that have proven to be successful and will be around for a long time. The top tier of these investments are what we would consider true or absolute triple net (NNN) investments that are free from any owner responsibilities such as maintenance, taxes, or insurance. In a triple net investment, the tenant pays all expenses and the owner collects rent in the form of a rate of return or a cap rate. The rate of return on these investments can range from 5% to as much as 10% in some cases. The average returns for our market area range from 6% to 9% but can fluctuate. Our clients like these types of investments because they can diversify their personal stock portfolios and depending on the asset they usually have nice long lease terms which provide for a stable monthly income and return on investment. Excellent credit-rated companies and the investment can be a single-tenant asset or a multi-tenant asset like a shopping center. These investments are also very good instruments to place into trusts and pass down to family members in your estate. These investments can range from $300,000.00 to as much as $20M.
