Frequently Asked Questions
I'm new to commercial real estate investment. What should I know up front?
The integrity and reputation of the brokerage you select as your investment partner is very important. Coldwell Banker Commercial was founded on honesty and continues to live by that credo. Managing partner Grayson Powell insists that "each transaction is conducted with the utmost integrity." Our associates thoroughly review your situation and give advice and assistance based upon what's best for your personal, specific needs.
We also have the advantage of being very flexible in structuring your deal. We are willing to be creative with a large number of variables and more options than other firms may allow. We truly believe the company philosophy of "Client First."
What geographic area does your company reach?
While the majority of our listings are in the region of southeastern North Carolina, our affiliation with Coldwell Banker Commercial allows us to market property almost anywhere in the world. We're also able to assist you in selecting and procuring investment or business property in more than 27 countries.
How will you market my property?
We'll ask you a lot of questions about your goals. The best course of action depends upon the outcome you're trying to achieve. Do you want to retire and relax? Do you simply need an influx of cash to get through a family emergency? We'll review your situation with you to determine whether it's appropriate to sell or lease your property, to find a silent partner investor or to seek other means of achieving your goal. We develop an extensive business plan which includes identification of the target market which we personally contact about your property. The same applies when you're looking to purchase. We carefully examine your goals. Do you need to quickly turn a profit or hold the property for long term appreciation? We ask the questions that help us to jointly make the best decision for your future.
How can I determine whether I can be successful with a business I'm considering buying?
Honestly, one of the first rules of business success is to do what you know. Beyond that, Coldwell Banker Commercial Sun Coast Partners will assist you up front in analyzing the market, the need for such a business, the potential income stream and the return on investment. We look at the opportunity afforded by the business and the potential affect of competitors and market conditions. We'll look at growth trends, traffic count and road patterns, and we'll assist you in determining whether the numbers make sense as a good investment for you.
