10 Reasons You Need a Broker
If you’re on the fence about whether or not to use a broker, consider these 10 benefits of gaining the assistance of one of our experts in your commercial real estate search.
- It’s free
Just like using a residential agent to purchase a home, the client never pays a fee to the broker for finding them space. The landlord or seller pays any necessary fees to the commercial brokers.
- Know the structures of lease/purchase
Brokers at [company_short] work with commercial transactions all day long; they understand brokerage vocabulary and are aware of current market transactions. Using a broker takes all the guessing out of the real estate process.
- Have access to all listings
Rather than just seeing what the public is allowed to see, either online for free or by driving by “available” signs, [company_short] utilizes multiple real estate databases to uncover all available properties. Furthermore, their brokers’ relationships with city officials and other industry professionals allows them the knowledge of “off the market” opportunities.
