Tenant and Landlord Representation – When you need someone on your side!
By Bryan Cole, Industrial and Office Specialist for NAI Keystone

Tenant and Buyer Representation – You need representation too!
Your primary objective is running your business. While everyone has a little bit of knowledge of the current market conditions, it is always good to be represented by someone who is well aware of and understands all aspects of the current market climate: i.e. rental rates, availabilities, incentives in the market, etc. In most instances, your primary business is not leasing or buying real estate. However, most property owners have leased space numerous times and some do it each and every day. Most of the time owners hire brokers to represent them in leasing/selling and marketing their facilities. These brokers are known as Listing Brokers. The brokers representing these properties have the owner’s best interest in mind. Do they have an advantage? Absolutely! The Listing Brokers are well aware of the market, they are familiar with the competition, and they know what to do to get the most favorable terms for their owner. Many tenants believe engaging a Tenant Rep will result in paying a higher rental rate. Or, you may have heard from Tenant Reps that engaging a broker to represent you will not cost you anything. So what should you believe? In most instances, especially when there is a Listing Broker involved, there is already a brokerage fee incorporated into the rental rate. This fee will be paid to the Listing Broker even if you are not represented. You are not saving money by going into the deal alone, regardless

of what you are told. A knowledgeable Tenant Rep could be extremely valuable in buying or leasing a facility. They can provide you with the best case scenario between buying versus leasing. You would be surprised to know, when you add up all of the variables involved, it may end up being much cheaper to purchase a building rather than lease a building and vice versa. A lot goes into a proposed deal: improvements, moving costs, professional fees, operating costs, tax advantages, and much more. These can all be factored in! Be sure to ask your Tenant Rep questions. When it comes to buying or leasing real estate, having a good Buyer or

disappointments an owner faces when working with brokers is the amount of time and effort put into their property. Another is the communication back and forth between the broker and the owner. Being an effective landlord rep takes time, energy, understanding, and the ability to market a property effectively. A good Landlord Representative has a marketing plan that is ideally suited for the property he or she is representing. This means, having a step by step process in which he/she will market the property, and contact prospective users. This would consist of website listings, marketing materials, target companies, online marketing sources, promotional items, events, call lists, etc. There is much more to representing an owner than just putting a sign on the building or lot. An effective broker utilizes all means possible to get a quick and favorable deal for the owner. Depending on the type of project, having a time line indicating what and when some of the items will be completed is beneficial to owners. Brokers will also be able to assist in maximizing your potential net income for a property, thus maximizing value if you were to sell. Most brokers are paid a brokerage fee to represent a building. When working with a tenant or buyer representative they would split that fee 50/50. When you start to question why a broker deserves a fee of six percent, understand most brokers pay all marketing costs, advertising fees, and office fees. Your broker is taking a risk whether your property sells/leases or not. Another service broker’s offer is finding buyer/tenant’s that are qualified. The last thing you want is to have a tenant occupy space, spend money for improvements, and default on a lease in 1 year. Be sure to ask your broker’s questions. When it comes to selling or leasing real estate, having a good Listing Broker on your side will save you time and money. By Bryan Cole, Industrial and Office Specialist for NAI Keystone

Tenant rep on your side will save you money. You can also avoid mistakes which could have long term consequences. Ways a tenant rep saves you money: • By providing you all available options in the market place as well as providing you a comparison report showing what options you have – factoring in all associated costs; not just rental rate and length of lease. Knowledge –knowing the market, the rental rates, the incentives being offered, and completed deals. Familiarity with documents and an understanding of the process. (i.e. Request for Proposals “RFP”, Letter of Intents “LOI”, Sales Agreement “AOS”, and lease documents. Lease vs. Lease Analysis and/or Lease vs. Buy Analysis. Negotiating Skills – ability to read the owner and the owner’s representatives and react to the information received. Ability to analyze and understand your wants and needs – This allows your rep to make sure you are not leasing more space than you need, to make sure you give yourself leverage for future expansion (Right of First Offer’s, Right of First Refusal, etc.) and to ensure you take all future items into consideration.
