So you’ve just completed construction on a brand new or freshly renovated commercial property. You want to find some great office tenants that will be able to bring the best quality of work to space. But there are hundreds of businesses out there, all in different industries and with different reputations. And more and more businesses are moving to Frederick, MD, because of the growing push for industry and great rent value. You want to make sure your corporate building is at full capacity of respectful and hardworking office tenants. How can you attract the best businesses, companies, or firms to your commercial building? Here are three ways to begin your search for the perfect office tenants for your commercial property.
Hire a Real Estate Broker or Agent
The easiest, most foolproof way to find quality office tenants is by taking advantage of a real estate broker like Clagett Enterprises. Unlike regular residential real estate, there is no online network for building leases. It is all done the closed circuit, and only real estate brokers have access to a network of potential office tenants. One advantage of using a commercial broker is that you know you will be renting to quality, reliable office tenants since using a broker generally require legal contracts preventing fraud or broke leases. The only real downside to using a real estate broker to find your office tenants is it’s a paid service. But a broker is well worth the investment for your property in the long run. Plus, it saves you a lot of work hunting down potential candidates.
Even though there is no reliable commercial real estate source website online, it is still possible to find office tenants via the worldwide web. Websites like Craigslist, for example, are decent places to put the word out for your commercial property. While it’s not recommended to use this method for actual leasing, it is a great way to gauge how much people are willing to pay per month and what kind of office tenants are most interested in your commercial property. For example, if you notice a lot of law firms have an eye on the location, you may want to pitch the location to law firms only looking for a brand new office space.
Put Up a Sign the Old Fashioned Way
Before the days of the internet, and even before the days of real estate agencies, there was the tried and true “For Sale or Lease” sign up in the window or on the front lawn. Believe it or not, this method is still very effective in finding office tenants even today.
