Real Estate Transactions for Real World Needs
Whether you’re a tenant or landlord, certain factors come into play when considering a commercial real estate transaction: need, location and finances. But some of these elements are changing.
The world is more connected now and many businesses are using new models: 24/7 operation, remote workforce, ecommerce, outsourcing and cloud technology.
That means priorities and needs are evolving, and we can help you evolve with them.
Use these questions and Worksheets to clarify your requirements – then let us take it from there.
Will business in the future look like it does today?
- Is this to be a corporate headquarters, branch location, or industrial site?
- Will foot traffic necessitate a storefront or is commerce conducted online—with or without inventory?
- Will off-shore services or enterprise technology reduce the need for office space but require impressive physical presence?
- Does this company anticipate growth, mergers or acquisitions – or in contrast: streamlining, right-sizing or diversification?
Take a moment to consider geographic access for employers, customers, and suppliers.
- Should this location be near major highways, commuter lines, airports, restaurants or hotels? Or might this business thrive in a scenic location off the beaten-path?
- Would this property accommodate an open floor plan or be more suitable for traditional office design?
- Is employee and visitor parking important or no longer relevant?
- Does this business need to be in close proximity to an industry vendor, partner or clients?
Think about long and short-term realities.
- Must this real estate transaction coincide with a certain business cycle or fiscal quarter?
- Is there a challenge with cash flow?
- Could this business be subject to relocation by a parent company or buyer?
- Would it be helpful to have multi-use space?
