I’m selling my house. It’s been 16 years in the suburbs and I’m ready for urban, walkable living. We had a realtor walk through the house to help us get it ready to sell. She went through every room, making suggestions so that every potential buyer could see themselves living there. She used a checklist that made the job easier and we ended up with a punch list of items to work on.
As a tenant rep, I walk through properties all the time. Very often, the tenant has very specific ideas regarding their space requirements. Sometimes the list is so specific that they may miss out on options that will work with a few minor tweaks. Other times, the list is so general that they have a very difficult time narrowing down their choices. Maybe I just have real estate on the line, but I decided that a commercial real estate building tour checklist might be just the thing to help our tenants make a better choice. Listed below are a few thoughts to consider:
Obviously, this list is not all-inclusive nor does every consideration apply to every situation. However, it’s a conversation starting point that might just make finding the right space a little easier.
