Selling Commercial Property: The Viewing

Building for sale

We have all heard plenty of tips on how to prepare for a viewing when selling your home, but what about when it comes to selling commercial property? The viewing is often the most important part of the selling process as it can tip the scales for a potential buyer. There are a number of ways in which you can make your property more attractive to a prospective buyer and improve your chances of getting a timely sale.

Don’t Neglect the Exterior

Every inch of your property should look its best for the viewing. That extends to the exterior of your property as well as the interior. Ensure that the outside of your property is clean and in good condition. If you are located in a shared building, it may not always be possible to do anything about the exterior of the building, but you could request for cleaning to be carried out by your landlord if necessary.

Make Sure the Property is Spotless

At the very least, a property should be spotless for a viewing. Having a dirty property can be incredibly off-putting for a potential buyer, and in some cases, can be enough to get in the way of a purchase. To avoid any last minute stress, it is advisable to have a thorough clean in advance of the viewing date with another quick clean directly before.

Keep Things Neutral

As a general rule, neutralising your property can make a big impact on the way a buyer views it. Your property should be like a blank canvas, ready for a new owner to make it their own. Of course, the extent to which this impacts is reliant on who you are selling to – a private landlord or a business owner who will be moving their company in. Either way, it is safer to ensure your property is as neutral as possible, storing away personalised effects and items with your company logo.

Have Key Details Available

When prospective buyers view a property, they are likely to have a number of questions. Making sure that they have access to the answers to those questions is essential. While you may not be showing them around the property yourself, it is important that you make your agents aware of key features so they can give the best representation of your property possible.
