5 Tips For Choosing The Right Property For Your Business

5 Tips For Choosing The Right Property For Your Business

Your business premises can make or break your business. Finding the right property can seem like an uphill struggle, especially if you are unsure about what you are looking for.

Tip 1: Follow your head, not your heart

Make a choice based on rational thought and not on your emotional investment.

Tip 2: Your financial position

It can be the driving force and also the barrier to renting or buying a business property. Choose suitable premises, at the right price because if the costs are too big, it will suck your business under.

Tip 3: Location, Location, Location

A retail unit in a shopping mall with a footfall of several hundred people a day will cost considerably more than a unit down an alleyway or side street. If your business needs footfall – people walking past and dropping in ‘on spec’ –clearly you need a property as close to the main shopping route as possible. If your business doesn’t need this footfall, serviced offices on business premises can tick all your maintenance and service needs, ensuring all bases are covered.

Tip 4: The Right Impression

Your business premises must suit your business. It needs to match the sector where you operate. If you are a store that sells vintage clothing and accessories, there is a certain look and ambience you want to create to meet customer expectations and match your commercial needs.

Tip 5: The Legal Stuff ‎‍

Ensure you can meet the various legal obligations and rules that might come with your new property. You don’t want to sign the dotted line only to find that to make it into what your business needs will cost a small fortune.

I would like to thank the team at WHK Commercial Property for the wonderful service they have provided. I would like to acknowledge their honesty, professionalism and friendliness. It has been a pleasure dealing with them.

Our agent was great in keeping all parties informed through the purchase process and seeing the matter through to Settlement.

I came across WHK Commercial Property when looking for a commercial rental in Wollongong in 2012. A site I was interested in was re-advertised with WHK. Unlike the first agent, WHK seemed to work on behalf of both parties to gain a mutual result and not what was best for the agent. The negotiations were timely and a property that was on the market for years leased quickly once our agent became involved.

When the time came for our business to require a second location we were pleased to see WHK were the agents and reassuringly commenced negotiations. Nothing had changed. Our agent worked for both parties and we are about to occupy our next location. At times when our agent has been on leave, Harry has stepped in and been fully aware of our needs, creating a smooth process.

I'm only hoping WHK are expanding near to where we hope to have our third location, to continue our leasing relationship.

To whom it may concern,

I engaged Harry Stefanou of WHK Commercial Property as the sole acting agent for me in September 2013 when my property at Resolution Drive was placed on the market for sale. After a successful print and online marketing campaign, we had offer and acceptance on the property within 5 months of listing it. This alone was a substantial accomplishment in an unpredictable commercial market and reflects the great efforts Harry and his team went to, to market the property to their existing database of potential purchasers, as well as new clients in the market.

Harry was instrumental in guiding me through a somewhat difficult sale, helping us to achieve an excellent end result. Without Harry's patience and assistance throughout the selling process, we would still be trying to negotiate terms and finalise the sale.

I will not hesitate to recommend the service of Harry to anyone else we know looking to sell or lease their commercial property in the area.
