Listing a Commercial Property vs. Listing a Residential Property

Today I’d like to go over a few key items that makes up the differences between listing a commercial property and a residential one. Most agents deal with residential properties, so there are a few things you need to know specifically about commercial properties before you get into the business of listing them.

The first thing you need to do is find a commercial agent. Someone who has the marketing tools needed to sell the property. The biggest mistake people make is hiring a residential real estate agent to do a commercial real estate agent’s job. Not every agent can sell every property. Many will tell you they can, but when it comes down to it, they might not have a clue.

The local systems that residential agents use are FMLS and MLS. As for agents that deal with commercial properties, there are a number of different systems and databases to use. They include Costar, Property Line, LoopNet, CIMLS, and more. They cost quite a bit more to use so most residential agents don’t have membership. You are losing lots of international exposures by not working with an agent that uses these crucial services.

In addition to us being members to these commercial services, we also have an 89-point Marketing Checklist/Plan that we include in each of our commercial properties. We show our clients what we’re going to do, how we’re going to do it, and the steps we’ll take to get there. You won’t miss out on maximum exposure to local and worldwide brokers, investors and buyers. We are also members of local Chambers of Commerce and Atlanta Commercial Board of Realtors which is another key factor to networking and selling your property for the most money.

If you have any questions for us about listing commercial properties or anything else related to real estate, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
