Have you ever given directions to an office building and used a well-known business name in order to describe that particular building? Certain business names carry weight with people in general, and obviously those who own commercial buildings want to be sure to attract those types of tenants so that they can add value to their own investments. This is much easier said than done, however, and that’s why every detail needs to be attended to and every possibility needs to be pursued and clarified. Owning a commercial building involves much more than simply putting a sign on the lawn and waiting for businesses to fill out lease applications.
Given the extreme level of competitiveness that exists within the commercial real estate market in San Diego, building owners need to make sure that they make a very strong first impression with everyone who sees their building. The first look at that office building is a lot like that first time eyes meet in a job interview – many people will go a long way towards making a decision on the potential fit within those first few seconds. That’s the basic point of an article that was recently published in Connecticut, a link to which can be found here.
Overall, the image that your building projects is the one that’s going to be attributed to your tenants, so you need to make sure that you put some investment into your landscaping. These efforts should make sure that:
Handling this aspect of a property is something that many building owners may not give enough thought to initially. Many think that as long as the lawn is mowed and things do not look run down and dilapidated that they have done enough with the exterior of the building. Not to mention, many building owners feel that they simply do not have the time to dedicate to this aspect of building ownership.
However, failing to place the proper level of importance on the landscaping of an office building can lead to a lower quality of potential tenants. It can also lead to lower rent revenue simply because people are not going to be willing to pay top dollar for a location that looks anything but. This will be the case almost regardless of your location.
Instead of looking to cut corners and save a bit on your operating costs, you should work with a partner who will make sure that you don’t need to worry about the landscaping. All you’ll have to do is accept the compliments of the people who see it for the first time.
