Be smart, check your zoning rules first

March 27, 2015
When purchasing or leasing a property for a business, the location often is more important than all the other features and price. However, new business owners, in particular, may sometimes fail to determine if the zoning for the building meets their company’s needs.
Re-zoning a property can be a costly and time-consuming process. By doing some initial research, you can confirm – before you purchase or lease, that the property’s zoning meets your requirements.
Check with  the local municipal offices. Municipal offices will have all the documentation on your building’s zoning restrictions. .
Review the municipal building plan. Building plans are established to encourage the development of business in the surrounding area.
Variances and exemptions happen, you may find that zoning rules conflict with your plans for the location. In this case, it’s wise to have an alternate site in mind. It can take a lot of time  to re-zone a property, and you risk being turned down after every appeal.

As some of you may know, the Omaha commercial real estate market has experienced a marked improvement in the past two years and we are seeing a shortage of available properties for sale and rent.  We have a list of potential purchasers who have asked us to assist in their search but we are not finding the available buildings that match their needs.  Consider calling our real estate professionals to have them visit with you about what your property may be worth in today’s market.  If you have had any desire to consider a sale, it would be an ideal time to see what an estimate of your property’s value might be.  Propertybanc assists both buyers and sellers in addition to tenants and landlords.   We would appreciate an opportunity to list your property!

That means if lots are selling for $50,000 in a subdivision, all other lots for sale in the same subdivision will be assessed for tax purposes at $50,000. Under a law enacted by the 2014 Nebraska Unicameral, all vacant land will be valued at market value.

The owner of two or more vacant or unimproved lots that are being held for sale or resale, may elect to have the lots treated as one parcel for property assessment and property tax purposes. When treated in bulk, the sum assessed value may be lower than the sum of the market values. These lots must be in the same subdivision and in the same tax district.

An election for treatment as one parcel must be made annually by filing a Form 191 with the county assessor by December 31 immediately preceding the year for which the election to treat the vacant or unimproved lots as one parcel is sought.

For lots covered by this application, the county assessor must use the income approach, including the use of a discounted cash-flow analysis.

In the October, 2014 issue of Business in Focus, the Bellevue Flex Development project located between Fort Crook Road and the Kennedy Freeway is featured and incorporated into a story supporting the opportunities available in Bellevue, Nebraska.  The magazine has stories of communities across the country that have a variety of businesses that have succeeded and also information about possibilities in the future.

The multi-acre property is situated in a location that appears to be ripe for development, considering the recent improvements in the transportation routes that will significantly increase the traffic numbers along the property.
