Three Valuable Tips for Buying Industrial Real Estate0

Posted by Thomas Miller, CCIM

how-toWith its ability to withstand market fluctuations and its flexibility in terms of space use and zoning, industrial real estate has long been considered a sector with promising return on investment. If you’re considering investing here in northern Nevada in 2019, here are three valuable tips for buying industrial real estate.

Start with an Action Plan

It can be tempting to dive right in, but an investment of this size calls for due diligence. Conducting appropriate research and creating an action plan should come well before you begin searching for available properties. Begin with a working budget, which will automatically narrow your search options when the time comes to see what’s on the market. Decide how much space you’ll need, and whether that space will be used for tenants or for your own business needs. That decision alone will help you determine whether you’ll need things like office areas, number of loading docks, etc.

Do Your Homework

Assuming you can create an action plan with no issues and you happen to stumble across a property that seems to tick all of the boxes, step two is learning all about it. You want to find out why the current owner is selling, what sort of repairs or improvements will be necessary to bring the faculty up to speed for your needs, potential future costs, and other factors specific to the building and the land. You need to know about relevant zoning laws, proximity to things like the freeway and other transportation hubs, and much, much more. The more information you can gather, the better.

If tips one and two have you stumped already – and if you aren’t an industrial real estate agent, they likely will – we recommend that you skip straight to step three.

Partner with an Expert
