How to Market Commercial Real Estate Properly

It's a good idea to set up a marketing platform, marketing budget, and a content calendar when listing a commercial property. Below is a workable 60 day marketing plan and directions how to market a commercial property properly.

Preparing for the Market-

  • Decide, with you, when to place your property on the market.
  • Establish a strategic price based on:
    • Research of comparable properties.
    • Consideration of current local market conditions.
    • Reasons for selling and close of escrow timing.
  • Estimate your probable net proceeds, or the valuation of the lease as the case may be.
  • Advise you on what you can do to make your property more saleable or leasable (including feedback from agents and buyers, once your property is on the market).
  • Review all necessary paperwork with you.
