Selling commercial office space requires a broad knowledge of the market in order to secure the best deal. Having an agent to represent your best interests in the transaction will ensure that your property is being marketed fairly and aggressively to compete with comparable properties in the area.
What Will a Skilled Agent Do For You?
There are many reasons why a person may choose to sell their commercial office space. Perhaps it was inherited and the owner has no use for it, maybe they are ready to retire, closing their existing business, or wanting to relocate. Whatever the motivating factor is, you will want to find an agent who can help you move the property quickly and get you the best return on your investment. A knowledgeable agent will understand the needs of both the seller and the potential buyer in an effort to expedite the process. They will thoroughly research the property for you, providing fundamental insights and analysis that both parties can rely on. They will handle contract negotiation in a way that is both fair and ethical, while keeping the seller’s best interests at the top of their priority list.
The Marketing Difference When Selling Your Office Space
A quality commercial real estate agent understands that a sound marketing plan is imperative to the successful sale of your commercial office space. They spend an ample amount of time watching the market in an effort to recognize what types of properties are moving and why. This information helps them to create a unique marketing approach that will allow them to target the audience where your buyer exists. The process of successfully marketing your property might look something like this:
- Analyzing the Property: A thorough analysis of the property they are representing will help your agent to see where you stand against comparable properties in your area, allowing them to determine a fair asking price that will leave both parties satisfied.
- Creating an Attractive Property Listing: Once your property has been analyzed, your agent will be hard at work creating a property listing that meticulously highlights its predominant benefits and features. Your listing will be aggressively published on a range of commercial real estate databases, websites, and marketing platforms that will help it to get the exposure and attention that it deserves.
- Utilizing Their Network: Your agent has the added benefit of access to a vast network of industry professionals. This is important to you because it could quickly help connect you to the right buyer or investor.
- Promoting Your Properties Unique Benefits: Your property listing on paper is one thing, but a prospective buyer wants to see the real thing. Your agent represents your best interest in your commercial office space transaction, and they will go above and beyond to showcase all of the benefits your property has to offer. They understand what your buyer is looking for and they believe your property is right for their business. Whether it’s the close proximity to major roadways, a recent renovation, or the potential for expansion, your agent knows the key pieces of information to focus on during a walk through that will help your property to appeal to the right buyer.
