Aren’t Industrial Agents Basically All the Same?0

Posted by Thomas Miller, CCIM

miller-industrial-properties-navigating-landlord-tenant-relationshipThe idea that industrial agents are basically all the same persists in some circles. On the surface, perhaps it’s easy to assume that since they’re all searching the same listings and in contact with the same people – particularly in a smaller market like northern Nevada – the actual agent him or herself doesn’t particularly matter. But a little thought quickly reveals how badly misinformed this notion really is. Still, if you’re going to generalize, it’s better to classify industrial real estate agents and brokers in two ways – the problem solvers and the order takers. Understanding which one suits your needs best is a quick way to narrow down your search for the right agent. … Read more →

Posted by Thomas Miller, CCIM

Instead of a standard “go-to” website, there are multiple – and pricey – membership-based sites that all offer a version of the same thing. Today, we’re explaining what that identical service is, and the 12 keys to improving your commercial property’s online visibility.Read more →

Negotiating Your Own Industrial Real Estate Lease is a Mistake0

Posted by Thomas Miller, CCIM

miller-industrial-properties-renewing-commerical-lease-2018There are many misconceptions about industrial real estate – our seven-part series on persistent industrial real estate myths tackles many of them – but one of the biggest is the idea that a business owner will save both time and money by managing their own property search and ensuing negotiations. At face value, all you need to do is look online, drive around a bit to see what’s out there, find a property that looks good, call the listing agent, and negotiate the terms. Sounds simple enough. Unfortunately, this simplified, and frankly rosy, take on the process fails to account for the many, many variables that inevitably arise. It’s those variables that make negotiating your own industrial real estate lease a mistake. Read more →
