Dear Kuester –
I have a large piece of commercial property that I inherited, and would like to sell. I have sold houses before and had no problems, but I’ve been warned that I really need to work with a professional firm that specializes in real estate transactions. What would be my risks in such a sale, and is this the type of transaction Kuester could handle?
Dear Ziggy –
The sale of commercial property is far more complex than the sale of a house, for many reasons. In a commercial sale:
-->Your risk for liability is much higher;
-->There may be liens and title problems of which you are unaware;
-->Zoning issues may pose a threat to the sale;
-->You run increased risk of legal disputes;
-->Land use may come into contention;
-->Market fluctuations can jeopardize the sale;
-->There are debt service and lender requirements before another entity can purchase the property;
-->You may have hazardous material and environmental waste issues to address prior to selling;
While all of these potential risks are real, they are far from insurmountable. However, you do need the help of a seasoned professional real estate company whose wealth of experience in the sale of commercial properties will guide you through any obstacles that may arise.
