If you have a commercial property and you want to make it more attractive to potential tenants or buyers there are a few things you can do. You don’t necessarily have to give the property a major overhaul, you can make a few adjustments to ensure it looks much more attractive. Read on for some great ideas.
Clean and Decorate
One of the first things you should do is make sure the property is clean. No-one wants to be shown around a dirty property. The cleaner it is the more likely you are to make a sale. Clean the walls, the windows, the doors, the floors, and any in-built cupboards and shelves. If the building is an old one it might be easier to decorate it instead.
A fresh coat of paint can work wonders. It can transform a tired-looking building or office space into a clean, modern one. A fresh coat of paint can also make your commercial property seem more of a bargain.
Check the Electrical and Gas Supplies
It’s unlikely that you will sell or lease your property if it is unsafe. It’s also illegal to sell or lease somewhere that’s unsafe. This is why it’s essential that you ensure the electric and gas supplies are safe. They should also be entirely fit for purpose and ready for the buyer or leaseholder to use.
While you’re checking the electrical and gas supplies you might also want to check the sprinklers and fire escapes.
Tidy The Outdoor Areas
Chances are your commercial property has some sort of outdoor area. Whether this is a doorway, a small garden, or a parking lot. No matter what the outdoor area is like, you should make sure that it’s tidy.
If the exterior of the building does not look good, people will assume the interior will be the same. If the exterior is quite dirty ask a commercial cleaning business to help you. In addition to this, you should sweep up any leaves, fill in pot holes, and repaint any neglected surfaces. You’ll be surprised by how much better the external areas look after a bit of work.
Ensure the Property is Accessible
A great way to make a sale or lease more likely is to ensure your commercial property is accessible. Can someone who is in a wheelchair access the building? Can they make their way around the reception area and onto the other floors? If someone in a wheelchair or those with mobility issues cannot get into or around your property you’ll need to make adjustments.
These adjustments can help to increase the value of your property in addition to ensuring everyone has access to your commercial property.
When you make a commercial property look more attractive it’s much more likely to sell or find a leaseholder. With a bit of work, you can make the property look more attractive. Be prepared to spend a bit of money as it can make a real difference to the asking price.
