Most tenants at some time, ask themselves “Why are we paying rent when we could purchase a building? There are multiple aspects to ownership of commercial property which should be explored prior to making a decision. We spend a substantial time with clients helping them to make analytical decisions. Once the decision to seek a building has been made, we start by determining the building size, type, geographic location, price, and use. Listed below are some of the steps Perry Commercial REI takes in facilitating a commercial property purchase:
