Most people associate the term “curb appeal” with personal residential properties only. However, it is also an important aspect for you to consider for commercial real estate, as well. When it comes to attracting the right tenant, good curb appeal can help a landlord a lot.
There are many things that you can do to boost the curb appeal of your commercial property. According to Greenway Property Services, these include adding additional lighting, investing in landscaping and creating a generally welcoming environment.
Lighting and landscaping
If your property looks great during the day, it should also look great at night. After all, some office employees do work late. Make sure that the parking lot, walkways and all entrances have good lighting. You want your tenants’ workers to be able to get in and out of their cars with no issues and be safe while in the parking lot.
Landscaping is also a major factor when it comes to commercial properties. No matter how little green space you have at your commercial property, it is important to maximize it. Contrasting colors and healthy plants create beauty and appeal to the eye.
Make sure it is welcoming
Any signs on the property should be clean and visible, as well as up-to-date and in compliance with any local laws. Making sure that the front area of the property is clean is also a must. Fresh paint and clean doors invite workers and tenants in, and ensure they retain interest in renting for years to come.
A little bit of work regarding curb appeal can help attract tenants and keep them around. This makes your job as a landlord easier and helps keep your tenants happy.
