During the seminar, Ms. Mendez covered Own America’s concepts for investment real estate, both, commercial and residential.  a variety of important and interesting topics such as how to calculate cash flow, deriving cap rates and rate of return on an investment property; the fundamental methods to expand on your investment, project changes in appreciation, and investment performance tools.

Ms. Mendez shared sustainable real estate initiatives that interlock with smart urban planning. The smart city concept: connected, vibrant and sustainable, it is now the global standard. Implementing smart planning concepts requires the commercial and residential community’s commitment and participation.  A commitment to continuous improvement in planning efficient and effective urban infrastructure.

This is a call for cooperation from the financial community to tear down qualification barriers, cooperation from municipalities for a break on architectural, zoning and permit processing barriers, there is a need for local code flexibility that will adapt regulations.  And this is also a call to alert commercial and residential developers for education on smart design, to partner with their lenders and their municipality planners for a successful team effort.
