What You Won’t Find in Typical Commercial Property Listings?

Written by admin on May 20th, 2011

There are many reasons people turn to commercial property listings to find great investment properties. However, is it the right decision for your individual circumstances? The answer is not always so cut and dried. There are quite a few potential benefits to seeking the help of others as you make your investments.

Realtors vs. Commercial Property Listings

You may think it will save you money to pour through various publications that list commercial real estate and/or properties week after week in search of the perfect property for your investment. This isn’t the case though most of the time. Time is money after all and you can save yourself a lot of time sifting through properties that don’t meet your standards by going through a Realtor.

Benefits of a Real Estate Professional

There are more benefits to hiring a real estate pro to help you find commercial property listings that meet your needs than you might see at first glance. Some of the benefits that don’t immediately jump out and grab you include the following:

Knowledge of the local marketing. This includes growth trends, downturns, and events occurring in the community that might affect the value of various properties. It’s their business to keep ears to the ground in order to serve you better. Benefit from their hard work.

Understanding of real estate trends. More importantly, they understand how these trends relate to your investment goals. You have your own business. You’ve been trained to do that business and odds are that you’re good at what you do as a result. Commercial property agents have also had training and experience to help them assist you better.

Experience dealing with the local economy and how it relates to the value of property. You probably understand that some parts of the country have properties that generally sell above or below (depending on the market) the estimated value of the property. Did you know that the same holds true in your city or town? There are some neighborhoods where properties are “worth” more than they would be in other neighborhoods. You would do well to work with a real estate professional that understands this well.

Going it alone is like Digging for Treasure without a Map

When it’s your investment future that’s on the line, you’d do well to work with a partner that will help you find the path you’re working towards. Otherwise, you risk leaving money on the table by the time all is said and done with your investment venture. A skilled professional is dedicated to making sure you are poised to receive the greatest potential return on investment or at least shoot straight with you so that you know what you’re getting into.
