What are your Warehouse Needs?

Concessions are up to market conditions and we strive to help our clients navigate the sub-market’s ins and outs to determine what is viable. Below are the fundamentals to think about as you get ready to lease or purchase a warehouse property in the Austin Area.  Check out our charts on our HomePage of current lease rated for warehouses for detailed information on base rates without NNN expenses included.

Determining what your warehouse property needs are critical because concessions are about trade-offs and value to the buyer or tenant.

  1. Determine what your must haves are, things you cannot give up in a negotiation such as power requirements, door access, 18 wheeler access , 100% HVAC etc.
  2. Determine up-front what is your flexibility like?  In tight supply markets maximum flexibility is required when it comes to location preferences. Can you give something up to gain something else?
  3. Outlying areas generally have better sales pricing and lease rates than warehouse properties near or closer to downtown Austin (CBD).

 

 

Ready to Move Forward?

Are you ready to move forward? If you feel you understand the Warehouse market  as well as a broker and can negotiate your own deal with market knowledge, then you probably do not need a Broker’s assistance representing you as a Buyer or a Tenant.  This means you will need to contact a listing agent who represents the property .  Advantages of being represented? When a Buyer or a Tenant is represented, there is a fiduciary responsibility to that Client and not to the Landlord or the Seller.  Getting great service is an experience and it isn’t something that is tangible.  Results are what counts and testimonial proof, you can see what our clients say about us by clicking the button below.
