Myth: A company will save money if it deals directly with a landlord…
Commercial real estate transactions are paid for just like residential transactions.
For example, when you list your home, you agree to pay a real estate commission. When someone buys the house, the commission is paid, and any brokers involved with the transaction share the fee.
When a landlord lists a space, they too agree to pay a real estate commission. If your company leases that space, the entire commission is paid, and any brokers involved with the transaction share the commission. The fee is already being paid. So, if you don’t have someone representing your interests, the landlord’s broker keeps 100% of the fee.
When you’re looking for new space, having a representative on your side is your best interest. A tenant rep advocates for you to help you receive:
A Better Rate
Market Favorable Terms
And your representative comes at not cost to you.
