Consider All Components of Future Cost
Before Deciding Which Space to Lease

© CSI Consultants Inc.

Like most non-profit organizations, your largest single non-payroll expense is probably occupancy cost.  Before deciding among competing transactions, you must know how their respective costs will compare over the entire projected term of occupancy.

These financial projections must take into account all cost components, not just the base rent.  Among the critical non-rent elements to be considered are landlord concessions, tax and operating expense escalations, electricity, tenant installation costs, cleaning costs, municipal relocation incentives and loss factors.

CSI Consultants Inc. provides its clients with comprehensive financial projections and comparisons throughout the relocation process, updating them continually as negotiations proceed.  Summary sheets and graphs make these complex calculations instantly understandable.

We analyze each transaction from a variety of vantage points, including Cost per Usable Square Foot, Cost per Rentable Square Foot, and Total Cost, all of which are presented in both spreadsheet and graphic format.

But that's not all.

Because a dollar spent today costs you more in real terms than a dollar spent in the future, we use discounted cash flow analysis to determine the
Effective Annual Cost of every transaction under consideration.  This methodology reduces all components of cost in any transaction, whether it is a lease or a purchase, to a single number, so that our clients can easily compare competing deals with state-of-the-art accuracy.  The results of hundreds of calculations can be grasped in just a few minutes.

As the analyses of competing transactions are updated during each round of negotiations, they become a powerful strategic tool, since they pinpoint direction for the succeeding round.

These reports are provided at no cost to our brokerage clients, and at affordable rates to our non-profit consulting clients.
