BUYER REPRESENTATION

Successful companies are often interested in buying property instead of leasing because of the long term financial benefits. We help locate available properties, arrange inspections, get construction bids, connect you with financing options and evaluate the cost of purchasing vs leasing.

Good candidates for buying:

  • Anticipate the building or condo working for the next 5-10 years
  • Have ample cash for down payment, remodeling and maintenance (cash not needed for working capital)
  • Have specific build-out requirements that necessitates heavy remodeling and customization (dentists)

Bad candidates for buying:

  • New businesses
  • High growth companies
  • Companies that require flexibility

LEASE NEGOTIATION

There are three main areas we help you negotiate:

1. The Deal – Price & Terms

2. The Contract – Legal Document (often in conjunction with your attorney)

3. Issues / Problems – Troubleshooting when things don’t go as promised or planned.

SUBLEASE DISPOSITION

Whether you’ve outgrown your space or downsized, disposing of space is sometimes necessary. We use a variety of resources to give your office a leg up on the competition.
