The process for finding the right commercial space for your business can vary in regard to length of time. Some transactions can take as little as a few weeks while others can span the length of 2 to 5 months or even 1 to 2 years! Transactions that take longer generally yield higher returns for the brokers involved but, if you have a good tenant rep broker, the size of the deal shouldn’t matter. A good tenant rep broker will pace you, the client, first and will work just as hard for you if your deal is small. How long the process takes all depends upon a variety of factors including the sophistication of you (the client), how large or small your business is, how quickly you provide your tenant rep broker any necessary and required information and documentation, how quickly the landlord and his/her representation responds, as well as the overall complexity of the deal.
