One of the most jarring aspects of the pandemic of the past few years was how quickly business ground to a halt and had to pivot to facilitate working from home. In many cases, offices closed up or significantly downsized their physical locations as it became clear that returning in-person might never fully happen in many sectors. Even those businesses that kept their large, sprawling complexes are now facing a future where the idea of a total return to in-person work spurs immediate pushback from many on their team. This combines to form a scenario where the odds are good that you may know a business looking for a new commercial space. Commercial real estate is far more complicated than personal real estate, and a commercial real estate broker can help you significantly. Frankly, most people would never buy or sell a home without a real estate agent, so why consider it for your business? Read on to learn many of the perks of having a commercial real estate agent help with property selling or buying.
Knowledge & Training
A commercial real estate broker has training and knowledge relevant to finding the proper space for your unique business needs and navigating you through the complexities of buying or leasing it. Your commercial agent will be licensed and trained to help you find a space that meets your needs but will also be knowledgeable about zoning and regulations and other factors that could make one building a better or worse fit for your business than another. They also have the market knowledge and can tell you if the price for a given market is fair or inflated based on its location and attributes.
Networks And Contacts
Commercial real estate agents have an extensive network of property owners and lenders. They have access to commercial listings that the average person cannot get to. Often this means that they will know of available properties you couldn’t find on your own, and they may even be able to tell you about properties that aren’t on the market yet but will be soon so you can get a jump on them.
Your commercial agent represents you and only you, keeping your best interests in mind. This tenant or buyer representation is invaluable during negotiations and closing. They should also work to get you the fairest price with all the specialized permissions or attributes your business needs.
