Owners know that curb appeal matters when selling a commercial property, but most people primarily consider the role of curb appeal when preparing to sell their home.
Personal property is not the only type of property that benefits from an improved exterior appearance. Improving the curb appeal on commercial property can also go a long way in helping increase the sale price and guaranteeing a quick sale. A good place to start the process is investing in exterior cleaning with pressure washing.
A well-maintained exterior communicates to prospective buyers that the owners have taken care of the property. You can build trust with younger clients in their 20s and 30s by showing that you care about your property and value your clients. Since half of prospective buyers drive by properties before they decide to view them in person, it is important to catch their eye immediately. They will be more likely to consider looking at a property if they see that it is well-maintained. Even better, most will be willing to pay more money for clean and attractive exteriors.
Commercial property listings include ariel photos these days, so it’s a good idea to include roof cleaning in your pre listing preparations.
Commercial buildings are subject to the same environmental wear and tear as homes and often take even more abuse due to increased public access. Mildew, pollution, birds, graffiti, gum, dirt, grease, etc., can all work to destroy the exterior of a building. Environmental factors and human traffic can impact windows, walls, roofs, and even sidewalks. Not only does a regular pressure wash boost a clean exterior, but it also decreases damage from mold growth, algae, dirt, pollen, and bird droppings. Any effort to decrease property damage helps property owners put off the need for expensive repairs. Pressure washing demonstrates to potential buyers that you have taken the time and money to invest in simple maintenance that promotes health for both the building and those using it.
As a business owner, you know how important it is to hire professionals to do the work that you do not have the time or knowledge to do yourself. Professionals have the tools and the knowledge to guarantee that everything is carefully cleaned and ready for inspection. They know that sidewalks, walkways, parking garages, loading docks, parking lots, facades, awnings, and even dumpster areas are important to show that the property has been cared for and well-maintained. You should also have a pressure washing company clean areas that can’t easily be seen because you never know when a buyer or their inspector may pinpoint that one area as a cause for concern. You “never get a second chance at a first impression,” so do everything you can to make that first impression count.
