Why Do You Need a Commercial Broker?

Commercial real estate transactions are complex. They involve many factors beyond the negotiation of price. Still, some investors and business owners believe they could save a bit of money by going it alone. Before you go that route, consider these questions:

  • Do you know all of the real costs in real estate transactions?
  • Do you know the vast array of agreements that can be negotiated as part of a deal?
  • How much do you know about the local market?
  • Do you have time to do all the leg work to find and screen all available properties on your own?

Commercial Real Estate Costs

Typically, there are no upfront costs when working with a commercial real estate broker. Commissions are only realized at closing of a deal that is agreeable to all parties. Also, buyers seldom pay out-of-pocket for commissions as the seller typically pays them.

More importantly, sellers on their own rarely reach the level of qualified buyers required to negotiate the best deal for themselves. Our extensive experience also means we can help you limit the time required to complete otherwise complex and lengthy transactions, including navigating the requirements of 1031 Exchanges.

Commercial Real Estate Market Knowledge

Hartwell Realty brings deep and important market knowledge to every transaction. We leverage this insight to position your property, helping achieve its highest value, as well as identify properties that uniquely meet your business goals over the long term. Our team also utilizes its influential network, decades in the making, to help identify off-market properties you would otherwise never know about.

Commercial Real Estate Negotiations

Brokers are professional negotiators. And chances are you will be negotiating against a broker in any transaction you decide to take on yourself. Hartwell Realty is a team of brokers with 30 years of negotiating experience in commercial real estate. Our most important goal is helping our clients achieve their business and investment goals.

The greatest cost savings in any commercial real estate deal comes from being represented by a broker who legally represents your best interest. The Hartwell Realty team leverages its vast experience in negotiating high value transactions to ensure you get the best outcome.
