Let’s say you hired an agent and they sent you a list of sites to review. You review the list, make your choices, and you’re ready to go. You tell the agent you could see the selected sites as early as tomorrow morning. This might be how it works in residential real estate, but commercial real estate is a whole different ball game. Unfortunately, in commercial real estate, the listing agent has to show up for every showing and getting 6 listing agents to show up on time at a particular building can be challenging. We don’t usually share this piece of information with our clients – but sometimes it helps for people to know what’s going on behind the scenes when we tell them there’s a reason they can’t see a space right away. Just know: there’s always a lot of coordination going on behind the scenes and aligning everyone’s schedules can be tough. The good news? Commercial spaces may take a bit longer to be shown, but they also don’t fly off the market the way residential real estate does, so there’s no need to worry if you can’t see a space you like right away.
