When a potential buyer is considering the purchase of a commercial property the most important factor in their decision is the income potential of the property. If you are upfront and honest about the potential you should be able to sell the property quickly.

Always discuss the term of the lease. Landlords favor long term tenants therefore the longer term you are willing to sign, the more items you will be able to negotiate into the lease. It is better for your business too: a company with a stable office is more desirable to customers than one with headquarters relocated every six months.

A great tip to assist you when investing in commercial real estate is to attempt to positvely affect the areas of appreciation you can control. You should consider whether you can add some kind of development to your property and whether you can increase your rental rates when tenants leave. Improving the areas of appreciation you can control will positively increase your earnings.

Your job does not stop once you have rented your buildings. You will need to keep a close eye on the small community you are renting it to. Make sure it is a safe environment where people are satisfied. Consider evicting a renter if they are degrading this safe environment.

Before you buy something, make sure you have a long term plan to keep your buildings functional. Even if what you buy is in excellent conditions, things are going to need repair over the years. Think about major expenses such as rewiring, replacing the roof or the plumbing.

Hopefully, the above information provided you a useful tip or two! Commercial real estate is serious business. Take your time when handling it! Whether you are buying it, selling it, or just maintaining what you have -- consider the pros and cons in any decision you make.
