Tips for Preparing To Sell Your Commercial Property

In an often-crowded market, you will want to ensure that your commercial property stands out from the crowd.  To do this, it is important to make the property appealing to potential buyers as well as to remove as many of the potential roadblocks to a sale as possible.

Tips for Preparing To Sell Your Commercial Property

Shine the Best Light on the Space

Attracting potential buyers often depends on first impressions. If the photos you choose to showcase your property are not of the highest quality, many buyers will simply move on without bothering to read the details. Make the investment in hiring a professional to capture your property’s best features. Seek the services of a photographer who is experienced not only in real estate photos but also in aerial photography to guarantee that you have all angles covered.

Take Care of Any Building Issues Before Listing Your Property

Best practices for selling a commercial property call for having an inspection performed in preparation for listing the property for sale. A commercial inspector can conduct similar inspections to what you would experience when selling a home. However, you may want to hire a company that specializes in commercial building inspections. Ideally, you should address any issues on the inspection report prior to listing the building for sale.

Do Your Environmental Due Diligence

It is potentially easy to overlook the environmental conditions of your property. Even something as seemingly minor as an oil stain on exterior pavement can impact a sale. Don’t get caught off-guard by a potential buyer’s request for environmental due diligence. Instead, be prepared for any environmental health and safety questions by doing the work ahead of time.

You made an initial investment in commercial real estate, and now you want that investment to pay off in the sale of the property. To increase the potential for a successful sale, put professionals to work to photograph your real estate and to conduct building and environmental inspections, and address any issues forthcoming from those inspections. The potential savings in time and money makes these steps worthy of the effort.
