What Help Is Available When Selling a Commercial Property?

Commercial Real Estate Agent:

To help sell your commercial property you may employ a commercial real estate agent to help you advertise and market the property. They handle all business to do with commercial properties, whether it be leasing, managing or selling it. They will find prospective buyers, manage and pass information regarding the property to them all while arranging and undertaking viewings. For their work they usually charge a percentage of the sale price, which can vary from 3% to 5%, but this can be negotiated with the agent.


Selling via an auction can be a quicker alternative to using a commercial estate agent. They have a quicker process from the first bid to the completion of the sale, which is much easier than negotiating and dealing with real estate agents.
