What to Ask at a CRE Showing ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿš€

Property showings keep brokers busy. Listing and broker websites house a lot of information so properties can be checked out online, especially using virtual tours and videos. Once a list of viable properties is narrowed, make sure you have a list of questions to ask once you get there.

Here are questions I suggest you have on your list to ask and/or think about:

1. Does the property meet your parking needs? Traffic needs? Visibility needs? Is the building wired to support your technological and mechanical needs?

2. How will customers gain access? Are there security guards? Do the doors lock past a certain hour? Will accessibility impact your customersโ€™ overall experience?

3. Will nearby or existing building tenants positively or negatively impact your customer draw?

4. What is the condition of the HVAC system? How is it configured building-wide? If multi-tenant, can the heating and cooling be controlled in the available space?

5. How is property management handled? Is there someone on site?

Itโ€™s important to communicate to your broker what your needs are and to keep an open mind when viewing a property. An experienced broker knows your market and can help you figure out if the property is the right space for you. At CEG, weโ€™re here to help!
