Commercial Leasing Tip of the Month

As a specialist in Tenant Representation on all kinds of leasing (office, industrial and retail) – be sure the type of “use” will work with the building being leased and the local City Government before getting too far down the road into lease review.

Move Planning Tip of the Week

When planning a corporate relocation, companies with 200 or more employees should bring on a move consultant and/or start planning their move at least 6 months in advance.  Companies with 800 or more employees should start the move planning process 7-9 months in advance.

Tip for Mover RFPs

All mover RFP’s issued must have quantities of all furniture and equipment to be moved or liquidated.  A TBD does not work in place of a quantity – as the movers must have quantities to bid any move.  If a client is unsure of a quantity or what will be moved or liquidated– then they/you need to help them estimate quantities – based on a worse case scenario before an RFP is issued.

Real Estate Leasing Tip for the Week

As primarily a tenant leasing representative broker, it is important to clearly qualify “tenants” before spending time showing and negotiating space in order to save both the tenant and broker time.  Tenants need to clarify clearly with the broker what their “wants” and “musts” are for a space.  And most importantly their budget and timing to acquire space.  Brokers should clearly explain the current market conditions with regard to rental rates and availability in the market being searched to their clients.  A mis-communication on either part will waste everyone’s time.  Contact Barbara Kane at barbara@kaneconsulting.net for further tips on negotiating leases.
