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.

Dear Prospective Landlords, Tenants, Buyers and Sellers,

It is my immense pleasure to recommend Damian Evans from WHK Commercial Property, as a real estate agent for any individual, company or enterprise looking to service their needs in commercial or industrial real estate to suit their unique situation. We contacted Damian when our property needs outgrew our previous commercial premises.

Damian had one initial meeting with us and took dilligent notes with regards to specific company needs and property requirements, as well as our budgetary limitations. He listened to our needs and he did not waste our time with properties that did not suit our needs or budget.

A master with the contract negotiations, Damian quickly got to work with the Landlord to come up with a deal that was ideal for us and made the Landlord happy as well. Throughout this new property negotiation process, Damian also managed to sub-Lease our previous premises resulting in an excellent outcome for us, especially in the current diffcult market situation, at the time. He knew the existing market and suitability available properties like the back of his hand.

We found Damian to be highly attentive, almost as if we her his only customers, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails promptly. We never felt neglected or unimportant. We are delighted to recommend Damian Evans to anyone looking to service their commecial property needs. He is hands down one of the most honest and reliable in the business, and in our option, if we ever need to relocate again, he will be our first choice in agents.

CareSouth were looking to purchase a commercial property to re-develop as our Illawarra Headquarters.

Our agent took the time to listen to our needs and after some investigation he presented us with a suitable property at Berkeley. The property was a disused supermarket and had a floor area of 2,000sqm and a 2,000sqm carpark which was ideal for us to re-develop for our needs. For CareSouth to re-develop the property, it required DA approval from Wollongong Council for a change of use, and this both delayed and complicated the normal purchase process.

Our agent was instrumental in keeping all parties informed through the purchase process and seeing the matter through to Settlement. I would have no hesitation in recommending WHK Commercial to anyone looking to purchase in the Illawarra.
