Successfully Managing and Capitalizing Commercial Real Estate, the Right Way
Managing one or two smaller commercial real estate properties can be simple to do, being that you manage these properties full time and have a limitless amount of effort, energy, and time to put towards it. In most cases, as you begin to grow and further develop your commercial real estate inventory you are going to find that you have little time to give each property the energy and effort it needs in order to be a profitable property. If this has become the case for you, you might want to take a step back while considering the idea of hiring a property manager to help you out. Property managers, if experienced, bring a table full of benefits and advice that you, a real estate property owner, can truly benefit from. Below, we want to point out some of the things property managers can offer when hiring them to manage your commercial real estate properties.
Managing commercial properties requires a different skillset simply because you are often dealing with larger buildings and heavier expenses. Therefore, you may find that keeping a commercial tenant happy is nearly impossible. That’s exactly where property management comes into play within the operations of your commercial real estate property business. Furthermore, unlike residential properties, it’s much more difficult to find tenants who will be able to afford your commercial real estate as the costs of entry are typically high and demanding. Property managers are going to be able to bring experience to the table when locating tenants that will be able to afford the first month rental fee, deposit, and other closing expenses that must be met before moving into their new office space.
Another important aspect of successful commercial real estate management is that you must know your contracts by heart. As the commercial property owner you should never have a question about your own contract. If an occurrence arises and you find yourself disputing your contract with a tenant, it’s important that you have all of the answers you need, on the spot. There are many provisions in leases that either allow the owner to collect more money or the owner to bill back expenses. Often rental rate increase and late payment provisions are not followed. In large properties, there are typically multiple variations of leases for different tenants. Having a property manager that has a clear understanding of each lease and the diligence to follow through during the entire period you own the property will significantly increase its value.
Furthermore, as your commercial real estate tenants have questions, needs, or requirement, if you have a professional property manager helping you, they will take care of all requirements imposed by the tenant. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and collect your rental checks. If something comes up that requires your specific attention, the property management group will reach out to you for further assistance with whatever needs to be addressed.
