How To Make The Most Out Of Your Commercial Property Viewings


It’s important to know that you’re doing all you can to maximise the chance of a prospective tenant finding your commercial property in London the right one for them. After all, you want to make sure that both you and your tenant are getting the best possible deal while effectively filling your empty property with a successful business.

So, how can you make sure that you’re getting the most exposure out of your commercial property viewings? As experts in commercial property lettings ourselves, we’ve got a few helpful tips on how to make sure your viewings go off without a hitch.

Prepare Any Information Your Prospective Tennant Will Need

Unlike domestic properties, there may be features and paperwork that your viewer will need to see before they can make their decision.

This could include items such as planning permission documents, environmental reports and even a draft of the contract that you are offering to them so that they can have a look through while they are viewing the property in person.

Not only will this help to speed the letting process up by removing unnecessary further meetings where this information would be presented, but it allows the prospective tenant to be able to get a hands on feel for the plans while they are actually in the property.

Prepare Any Answers You Might Be Required to Give

Tenants are always going to ask questions, especially if they are really interested in renting your property from you.

Try to think of questions that they may ask you and prepare your answers in advance so that you can give them the information that they require immediately on the spot, allowing them to make an informed decision a lot quicker than if they had to try and find out the answer to their questions through a letting agent who might not know the property as well as you do.

They will much prefer to hear their questions answered by the person who knows about the property and what it has to offer!

Make Yourself Approachable

There’s nothing more intimidating when you are wanting to know more about a property that you are looking to rent than to come face to face with a landlord who seems brash and matter-of-fact.

Although you don’t want to make it seem like you’re a pushover and will let a new tenant run riot in your property, it’s important to make sure that you are showing your prospective tenant that you are approachable should they ever need to ask you for help.

Look interested in what they will be using your property for without seeming obsessively nosy and answer their questions politely should they have any.

Although there can be a lot of work that goes into letting a property, the viewing stage doesn’t have to be the most stressful.
