I own a 3900 sq. ft. commercial building on the main block of a small downtown area. The mountain town is known for it’s art and indian collectibles. Sales are soft, even if the town is popular. There are basically three blocks of stores, but I’m on the most heavy trafficked block, so it’s a plum. My question is about leasing it. Namely, what is more attractive to most? Do I simply lease it for a certain period of time–and how long? Do I do a Lease Option? Do I do a double net or a triple net?
Of course, I know all are possibilities, but I’m TOTALLY ignorant about all this and want to do what is good for me, but attractive to a potential lessee.
And how do I advertise that I’m willing to lease?? Do I use a realtor? I still have a store in the building as well, and would need two months to sell the inventory, but ONLY if I have someone committed. I am still paying a mortgage and can’t afford for the building to be empty, waiting for a lessee. Please educate me.
By the way, I’m aware that I can go to an attorney or commercial realtor. I came here because I want to hear YOUR OPINION!!!
