The start of a new year is often a time of reflection and action as people and companies look to make improvements and perform long-overdue maintenance. Just like people and businesses, commercial properties can also benefit from New Year improvements and maintenance. In today's LMC blog post, we look at a few ways you can help your commercial property thrive in the new year for lasting health, beauty, and strength.
With the official start of spring just a couple of weeks away, commercial properties will soon display signs of growth again after a few dormant months of winter. However, not all commercial properties are ready to welcome in this new season. Properties that aren't prepared and ready for spring could experience stunted growth and poor health throughout the spring and summer months.
Houston is home to hundreds of churches, temples and places of worship throughout the greater metropolitan area. For many, these houses of worship represent community, family, and love, so caring for these properties is a high priority for parishioners. Unfortunately, many Houston area churches and temples find themselves with beautiful interior areas, and poorly maintained exterior spaces.
People buy homes in the Houston area for a variety of reasons, which can include a desire for home ownership, proximity to good schools, greater home values, shorter work commutes, and more square footage. After time, a property might no longer meet individual or family needs, particularly in regards to outdoor enjoyment and usage. Every few years, homeowners should evaluate whether or not their current property is meeting their specific outdoor needs.
For commercial real estate owners and property managers, having steady streams of revenue is vital to the health and strength of their business, helping protect their long-term investment. However, another major component of owning or managing commercial real estate and properties is maintaining and improving property values.
The city of Houston continues to surpass national economic trends, with new jobs, new companies and new construction coming to the city every month. The Memorial City area of Houston recently saw the completion of a new oil and gas office tower, and with it came a stunning landscape transformation. Murphy Exploration, a leading international oil and gas corporation, was in need of a beautiful, elegant landscape to surround their new office tower, so LMC was hired to complete this large-scale LEED project.
