When you’re thinking of investing in commercial real estate, one of your first decisions will be whether or not to hire a commercial real estate agent. While it’s possible to do the search on your own, there are many benefits to having a knowledgeable professional in your corner. Below are some of the amazing ways a commercial real estate professional can help with your search.
They provide access to more listings
You may have already started your search for a commercial or investment property. If you have, you’ve discovered that lots of free, online tools offer a glimpse into what’s available. But did you know that your commercial real estate agent has access to thousands more listings through services and websites that are only accessible by real estate professionals? By partnering with a commercial real estate agent, you’re broadening your search and having the added benefit of another set of expert eyes to help you sift through the listings. They also often have access to listings before they’re made available to the general public.
They guide you to smart investment decisions
Commercial real estate professionals have a unique skill: when they’re assisting with your search, they’re not just looking at your present needs. They’re helping to determine whether a property will house your new business if you grow to 50 employees, or whether your cash flow will be appropriate in an investment property. Since they’ve seen just about every scenario in the book, they have the knowledge, skills and experience to help you make informed decisions that will pay off in the future.
They connect you to new networks
The more people you know, the more likely you are to make a connection that will matter. That’s especially true in the high-demand, competitive landscape of commercial real estate. Your commercial real estate professional will have many connections – in and out of the real estate industry – who may be able to help you find the right property. These connections might save you time and money in your search. When you start looking for the right professional partner, keep in mind that their network is an important consideration.
