If you have a commercial property sale coming up, it is quite likely that you will be considering employing a commercial estate agent to aid the sale of your business premises. But a decision of this sort needs careful consideration, especially in light of today's difficult market conditions. It is important to ask - what exactly does a commercial estate agent offer you when you are looking to make a commercial property sale?
In essence, a commercial estate agent offers their clients a 'middle man' service for commercial property sales- which is to say they act to bring together those who have commercial property space available for sale, and those whose interest lies in buying commercial property. For the seller, agents will promote the commercial property sale on the open market, utilising hoardings, adverts in relevant magazines and local newspapers, the internet, and other direct sales literature.
Commercial estate agents can also act to screen the interested parties to those who have a serious intent, arrange viewings and handle the negotiations of a price between the parties, for the commercial property sale. A fee, typically 1-2% of the value of the sale, is levied for these services by the commercial estate agent - a quite considerable sum, when the value of the typical commercial property sale is born in mind.
In all of this, though, the commercial estate agents are acting a disinterested party. Because it is your commercial property sale that will earn them the fee, agents can be selective, to your detriment, in deciding which properties to take on. If the location or type of business, for your commercial property sale doesn't look attractive enough to them in the current market, they may well decline to take your property on.
Additionally, commercial estate agents have been known to act against their client's best interests, in order to close a sale, resulting in a reduced price for your commercial property sale. This is in addition to the inevitable mark down of having your commercial property sale on the open market. So it is worth asking - is there another approach that avoids the drawbacks of agents?
