When renting or leasing property, be sure to set up some form of pest control. This is especially true when renting in an area that has a lot of bugs or rodents, so be sure to talk to the rental agent about some pest control policies.
Double-check that you are seeking a realistic amount of money for your property. Market conditions can vary greatly; therefore, an appraisal may not be the best indicator of true market value.
Always make sure that utilities can be accessed from the commercial property you are looking into. Your business may have unique utility needs, but at the very least, you probably require hookups for electric, sewer, water and most likely, gas.
Look into the neighborhood you’re planning on buying property in. Buying property in an affluent neighborhood is likely to mean that any business which opens there will be successful thanks to having a clientele with a large disposable income. Bargain-oriented goods and services will find a more receptive market in lower- to middle-class areas.
Prior to selling commercial property, have it inspected first by a professional. This way you can make sure it is prepared in advance of a sale, and if any problems arise during the inspection you can take care of it on the front end.
When selling commercial property, advertise locally and outside of your region. Many sellers mistakenly assume that their property is only interesting to local buyers. Private investors will purchase properties outside of their area if the prices are low enough.
