End of Year 2018 Wrap up for CRE

2003-2005 “Irrational exuberance” a la Greenspan, now famous quote;

2008-2010 Great Recession and aftermath:  PTSD for many of us;

2016-2018 Recovery being fully realized after almost a decade;

Top 10 Suggestions for Selling Commercial Property

Congratulations, you successfully signed up a new listing, now you have to perform and sell the listing. If you are looking to perform quickly, to the best of your abilities, and acting in the best interest of your client you should be open to cooperating with other brokers. This can have some drawbacks, as brokers have overlapping clients, but overall the more people working on a listing the greater the chances the deal turns into a transaction and closes. Also, half of a commission is better than no commission. In today’s market buyers are coming from all over the place, not just other states but outside the country as well. In order to reach more buyers and increase leverage as a seller’s agent you have to reach a large audience and create buyer demand.
