Landlord and Tenant Opportunity

Recognize that a simple property lease transaction can open the door for you with a key landlord or business owner.  Relationships are important.  It can also be said that if you know plenty of things relating to local rents, lease documents, occupancy costs, property performance, and fit-out improvements, you can add considerable value to a property in capitalized cash flow.  Strategy and ideas can help facilitate an agreement between a landlord and tenant.

Boost Rents and Leasing Strategies in Commercial Real Estate

There are many different rent strategies that you can implement in commercial real estate brokerage.  The facts of the rental matter hinges on just how long the property owner wants to own the property. (NB – you can get plenty of commercial property leasing tips in our Snapshot program right here)

You can have rent strategies for the short term or the long term.  You can boost property value in a rental lift.

You can encourage a tenant to lease a property using fair and staged rents, or you can ask for the highest levels of income from the leased space and run the risk of a vacancy occurring.

Don’t forget that you also have net rents, gross rents, and incentives to work with in any lease negotiation.  The income or rent that you start with can be enhanced over time, so look at the bigger picture when negotiating with tenants.

Don’t focus so much on the start rent, but the income over time.  Look at the rent reviews and how they can support stable occupancy for the longer term.
