There are different types of commercial real estate brokers. Some brokers or agents only work with tenants, while others will serve both tenants and landlords. It might be most beneficial for you to hire a broker who works exclusively with tenants. A broker with that focus will be more experienced in successful dealings with tenants.

Dual Agency

TIP! Talk to a tax expert before you buy any property. Your tax adviser can inform you of all of the potential costs related to your investment, and also tell you what percentage of your profits will have to be paid in taxes.

Read the disclosures when you’re ready to hire a real estate agent. Make sure you understand the potential for the existence of dual agency. With a dual agency, you have the real estate broker working on each side of the transaction. This means the broker represents you and the landlord during the transaction. If there is a dual agency, everyone should be honest about it and find an agreement.

TIP! When shopping for an honest brokerage, ask the representative how the company makes money. An honest broker, of course, will be open to discussing how their money was made.
