At least once every year, we make a point of reminding you just how important it is to weigh in on how changes in our economy and the local commercial property market could play into or work against your current facilities/investment strategy.
Given the massive economic impact caused by the response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we decided to move up the timeline on that message this year and reach out to you now, as we enter the 6th month of the pandemic without a clear path to a full recovery.
When it comes to our physical health, the value of a pre-emptive strategy is clear. That’s why we are all being asked to wear masks in the grocery store these days. That’s also why, in more normal times, regular checkups are recommended even when we show no symptoms of ill health. Periodic visits to our doctor give us a chance to catch changes in our health early and make necessary shifts in our behavior or medical regimen to reduce the chance for serious problems down the road.
We see ourselves in that same role when it comes to all things real estate. While it is generally believed that a real estate broker’s value comes from locating assets and negotiating for their acquisition or disposition once a requirement has been identified, we see our role much differently. We believe that our abilities are put to their highest and best use by helping you gain and maintain a thorough and real-time understanding of market conditions. Like your doctor, we have our own specialized knowledge, experience and resources to assist you in that effort. Our goal is to help you make the most informed real estate decisions possible, even if your decision is to do stay put and wait for further guidance from the market before making a move.
With all this in mind, we recommend another real estate “checkup” to make sure that your present real estate strategy is aligned with current and anticipated market dynamics. We would welcome the opportunity to share our perspectives with you and to learn more about how we can assist you in the years ahead. Just give us a call to let us know what time works best for you. The doctor is in.
