Kevin Hodge, CCIM, and David Bode, CCIM
The COVID-19 pandemic created more than its share of turbulence in the marketplace, but the immediate impact of the shutdowns in March and April 2020 could be felt in deals across sectors and locations. In Hanover, Pa., an hour north of the Baltimore metro area, a deal for 104 acres of land fell apart when the purchasing developer walked away from a $100,000 deposit and completed full entitlements.
According to Kevin Hodge, CCIM, with Rock Commercial Real Estate in York, Pa., who represented the seller, the buyer was only waiting for the tenant to vacate an old farmhouse when COVID-19 hit the U.S. After discussions of potential extensions to the deal, the seller eventually moved on from the transaction.
Fortunately for Hodge’s client, David Bode, CCIM, SIOR, also with Rock Commercial, was able to locate a new buyer, thanks in part to the legwork from the aborted transaction.
“Our depth of knowledge of players in the market allowed us to identify a buyer who was active in the market,” Bode says. “We could highlight the advantages of this site, and, even if [the buyer] didn’t want to continue the plans of what was approved, there was significant due diligence and base-level engineering that will be useful when they ultimately decide to develop the tract.”
The buyer, who paid $3.44 million for the vacant space, is a manufacturer that does not have immediate plans to develop the property, instead opting to secure the land for future needs in a tight market. With Bode and Hodge in the same firm, the two saw their close working relationship as a bonus that was a catalyst to this deal.
“Working together as a team, with an active flow of information about who is in the market, what properties are available or coming available, and status of current deals, allows us to provide our clients with the best service and bring deals to a close even when the inevitable bump in road occurs,” Bode says.
“Some bumps are bigger, like in this case, but in the end, we were even able to get the seller more net proceeds,” Hodge says.
Both agents being CCIMs was another advantage — one that is an important point of emphasis for Rock Commercial.
“Working with an agent who has shown through their CCIM designation that they are proven allows me to know I’m working with someone who is not only capable, but also approaches a transaction in a similar analytical nature,” Hodge says. “That is also why, in our office of 11 agents, eight are designees and another is a current candidate."
