Selling or leasing a commercial property isn’t too dissimilar to the residential side of real estate. Curb appeal can have a sizable impact on value, both perceived and literal. This is an area where a commercial paving contractor can help. As a commercial property owner, you have an appreciation for a functional and well maintained building and surrounding area, you also want the appearance itself to add value. Your potential buyers and lessees will appreciate it, too. One way to maintain or improve the curb appeal of you property is to have a commercial paving contractor involved to maintain or fix problems that take away from the curb appeal of your commercial property.
Now you don’t need to have fancy decorative concrete and stuff like that if you don’t want to, but you do want your asphalt lots, concrete walkways and entryways, and of course, your curbs looking good. Though some of the fancier things like decorative concrete could actually increase the value or, at the very least, generate some more interest in your property. Even though people shouldn’t be judged by their outward appearances, commercial properties are. If the place looks run down, the value will be lowered. This is especially true when retail space is involved, but realistically, any business wants to look good. A well maintained and respectable looking establishment will more likely draw business.
If you’re selling or leasing, the curb appeal of your property can positively impact the sale price or the rent. Contact a commercial paving contractor to come assess the paved surfaces on your property and see what they can do to improve the curb appeal. Also, talk to them to find out if they think that decorative concrete will help in your particular case. It most likely will. It just makes good business sense to maintain your commercial property whether it houses your own company or if you are selling or leasing to someone else.
