WORKING WITH OTTAWA BUSINESSES
SELL OR BUY A BUSINESS IN OTTAWA
Bringing two parties together to transact a business requires specialized skills. To start, you need a Realtor with experience in shareholder purchase agreements, asset purchase agreements, lease agreements and franchise license contracts. Consideration of employees, business equipment, trademarks and intellectual property are essential components of your contract. Arranging for transition training and accounting for the value of inventory must also be factored in. Confidentiality during the marketing and sales process are paramount to ensure the viability and uninterrupted continuity of the company. Sellers must be forthcoming and transparent with all business financial documents and existing contracts. On the buyer side, it’s imperative that candidates provide proof of their financial status at the onset of the transaction process to demonstrate they are capable of making the purchase. Building trust between all parties is just one of the many ways we help you sell or buy a business in Ottawa.
Commercial Real Estate FAQs
WHAT EXACTLY IS COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE?
Any non-residential property utilised purely for business reasons falls under the category of “commercial real estate,” according to a broad definition. It could involve buying real estate as part of the sale of a business, leasing office space, or constructing a new warehouse. It might be a gas station, dry cleaning, mall, factory, industrial facility, or piece of land used for farming . Even residential properties like apartment buildings or rental homes may be held for commercial or income-generating purposes.
WHEN AND WHY HIRE A COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE BROKER?
When it comes time to close, savvy businesspeople rely on expert guidance because the risks can be high. You can save time and money in your search by working with a commercial real estate broker that specialises in the commercial real estate like My Ottawa Agent. An expert broker is knowledgeable about the property type and the specifics of the transaction. A knowledgeable broker is familiar with the property markets, including landlords, buyers, and sellers, as well as the hazards involved.
Additionally, a broker will act as a neutral third party to negotiate on your behalf, which can be far more successful than your own efforts. Also keep in mind that real estate agents frequently work on comparable transactions. Their connections and knowledge may be well worth paying a commission for.
Our commercial real estate brokers at My Ottawa Agent creates a Plan, master the transaction process, marketing strategy, and knows the real estate market. We provide the skills to negotiate a deal that best suits your needs.
DOES “AS IS” REALLY MEAN “AS IS”?
A piece of real estate being offered “as is” simply means that the seller makes no guarantees about its quality. Without further discussion or requests for repairs, buyers can conclude that the property has some flaws that the seller expects to include in the initial purchase price. However, there are rules regarding what liabilities can and cannot be passed off through a sale
The law occasionally compels the mandatory disclosure of substandard circumstances or property issues, a practise shared with other kinds of sales contracts.
WHAT SHOULD I ASK ABOUT LOCATION?
When looking for a location for your business, the classic real estate cliché “location, location, location” is undoubtedly accurate. It’s crucial to remember when considering location that you should consider a wide range of historical data rather than simply what is currently trending. Locations can be “trendy,” which is the justification for this. You should think about whether the neighbourhood where you wish to buy has enough people living there to sustain both your current clientele and potential expansion.
SHOULD I LEASE OR BUY?
This is a significant query that merits considerable thought. Leasing does not require a down payment to secure a mortgage, for example, which ties up some of your capital. Buying can be a great investment. Your organisation’s demands should be taken into consideration. Understanding fixed vs. variable costs will help you decide whether to buy because doing so will allow you to predict your monthly expenses (the mortgage payment).
With a lease, the price could change because rent is often subject to annual and renewal increases.
