Selling a commercial property is quite different than a residential property. A commercial property can be an industrial space, a vacant land, an agricultural land, office building, residential multiplex or shopping center. The transition process of commercial property brings its own challenges. Commercial real estate is a slow process with many strings attached. But with my experience and knowledge, this can be a smooth ride.
Commercial property leases are longer than single family dwellings. An investor doesn’t require 100% cash to buy commercial property. They rely on financing to purchase their properties. They mostly use cash-on-cash formula to compare the first year performance of properties in competition.
The appraisal process for commercial property is quite subjective, which can lead to a lot of frustration. The important fact is that the location of a commercial property is the Key. Every business wants a perfect location for its business growth, where he can increase its client base. So properties with good location sell faster than others.
Commercial property deal is different than residential property; same is true for down payment. Commercial property lenders want at least 30% down payment before they approve a loan. Be adaptable when searching for great deals. Use all resources when searching like Internet, Social Media, Classifieds, walk the neighborhood, talk to local people to see what input you get!
