Commercial Building Sales/Acquistions - It's a Wrap!

Over the past 7-8 months, we’ve tried to overview in a ‘soup-to-nuts’ fashion the area of buying/selling commercial properties. Targeted more at the owner-occupant market, we’ve tried to provide some valuable input as you consider your purchase/sale objectives. If you are currently active on a specific deal, there may be a topic that applies directly to your situation and perhaps offers some valuable perspective on it.
Within our blog archive, topics are posted weekly and titled according to the subject – which should make for quick reference. If upon reviewing the assorted topics you cannot find the subject you require, feel free to contact us and we will be more than happy to respond. Again, keeping in mind that we operate out of the Windsor-Essex, Ontario area, and our perspective is somewhat based on our market. But if we cannot help, we will try to put you in touch with someone in your market who can.

Some final thoughts on commercial property sales, whether you are looking to Sell or
Buy, “Know your market” or better yet, make sure your broker does. Real estate has always been viewed as ‘local’ and the commercial property market is no different. It’s most important to have a clear picture of  the current state of your market – and specifically - price/ft. trends, market turnover, listing/sale ratios, availability of financing, and general inventory levels of like-properties. Again, market data may be harder to find and less readily available than with the residential market – but it’s out there and you need to be up on it.
Again, seek out experienced brokers with strong commercial property sales backgrounds to assist in your area – do not go it alone. To see our sales history, click here.

We are moving on – next week we begin a new series on RENTAL PROPERTY INVESTING with a full slate of weekly topics to keep things interesting.
