The Commercial Broker – Do You Have One?

When looking to buy or sell a home, one of the first things most people do is engage their own Real Estate Agent (or “Broker” depending on the vernacular of your location).

Many medium to large size corporations will have entire groups dedicated to the acquisition, and management of their retail locations.

And the small business owner? In many cases the acquisition of a commercial space looks something like this:

  • Get the business plan, and financing squared away
  • Go through some level of due diligence to determine the right location & type of property
  • Do some on-line searches and burn some shoe leather lining up the right property
  • Pick-up the phone and call on the properties identified

In this scenario this is the first point at which a Commercial Broker enters the picture, and it’s the broker that has been contracted by the property owner. Now don’t get me wrong, the professional Commercial Broker typically does a great job representing both sides of the transaction.

Here’s my point – when engaged as a member of your professional team, a Commercial Broker can bring their business acumen, and unique perspective much earlier in the process resulting in a better overall decision. The fact that you now have a professional member of your team who understands your business needs in depth, and will represent you and your needs in all negotiations doesn’t hurt either.

A Commercial Real Estate Broker on your team will lead to better decisions, and can ultimately improve your bottom line. It’s the most cost effective business consulting you will ever receive.

There are some very good tips on selecting a broker contained in this article.
