Commercial real estate involves an enormous range of minutiae compared to residential real estate. It’s imperative that you don’t use a residential real estate agent to handle your commercial real estate needs. Your real estate team must be well-seasoned in commercial real estate. State, federal, and local laws are involved. Especially in the Florida Keys, you want an agent that is completely aware of the local zoning and land use laws and environmental considerations. You can’t afford to leave this to chance with a real estate team that isn’t skilled with commercial real estate transactions.
You must find out if you can legally use the land you purchase for your business purposes. We need you to give us a rundown of your intended uses, including any future intended uses that you have planned for your commercial property in Key West. You also need to keep in mind that businesses are subject to environmental inspections in Monroe County too. Commercial real estate professionals like RE/MAX Keys Connection can help make sure that you are in full compliance as a buyer or as a seller.
Commercial and residential real estate purchases also have rigid procedures. You don’t want to screw up a deal when it comes to your business simply because you decided to go with a residential real estate agent for your purchase of commercial real estate in the Florida Keys or your sale of commercial real estate in the Florida Keys. We can also help you buy or sell an entire business. We understand business licensing and we will have your back when it comes to knowing the true value of what you are buying or selling.
If you would like to lease a spot for your new or existing business instead of buying, we can help you with that too. We can also help you find a commercial tenant for your vacant or soon-to-be-vacant commercial property. While a lease might seem like less of a concern than buying a property outright, renting commercial space is actually a pretty big responsibility too. It can mean the difference between your business making or breaking you. Let us explain to you how commercial leases are different from residential leases.
Commercial leases involve less consumer protection laws. There aren’t caps on security deposits, for example. It’s easy to enter into a commercial lease that you don’t understand, so let us help. Given that commercial leases don’t involve standard forms or standard text, it’s important to know what you’re signing. The lease is absolutely going to be written in the landlord’s favor, so make sure you know what you’re committing to. You might have broken a residential lease before, but commercial leases aren’t easy to break and there is often property at stake too. If you’re entering into a commercial lease, we can help make sure the terms are acceptable to you and that they will protect you and your business.
