Choosing commercial property requires knowing several things about the location. The easiest things to discover are basics like price, terms, and applicable zoning laws. Therefore, many companies will be able to narrow down prospective locations without too much effort. The tricky part is choosing one from that short list. Here are a few things you should pay attention to when making the final decision.
Ease of access is one of the major things to consider when looking at any location. The type of access needed will depend on your business. If your company is a manufacturer, you’ll likely need easy truck access. On the other hand, if you ship to retail customers, you’ll need to be on the routes of door-to-door carriers.
Employee access is also very important. Make sure your new location has enough room for parking. Also, try to choose a location where traffic jams won’t be a problem. If you want a city location, try for a spot that is close to public transportation.
Another thing to keep in mind is the likelihood of expansion. If you have a growing company, it will be convenient if you can buy commercial property that has room for building additions or adding more buildings. This will save you from having to move if your company gets too big for the current structure.
The general status of the surrounding community is another big factor to keep in mind when looking at property. A growing community may seem like a great place to be, but it may present a problem in the future. This is because the type of company that is fine in the middle of nowhere may not be accepted by the new, wealthy population moving in around it. On the other hand, retail establishments usually do best in growing, wealthy communities.
Finally, even though the basics are easy to discover, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t important. Aspects like property value and regulations can make or break a location. In general, areas with high property values are better for retail stores, while places that offer cheap land are good for industrial facilities that don’t need to be impressive.
The regulations affecting commercial property are also essential things to consider. Industrial businesses need to pay attention to things like limitations on water discharge, other environmental concerns, and whether there are noise restrictions. Retail businesses need to watch other types of regulations including limits on traffic density, trash generation and other related factors.
With these things in mind, you should have a much easier time of narrowing your short list down to one or two locations. The final thing to do is physically visit the sites and choose the one you like best.
