An accurate property value can help identify deals that other investors have overlooked and avoid investing in overpriced property. “

Read on to learn the mixture of art and science that it takes to determine the commercial value of your property.

What is Owner Financing for Commercial Property?

“In most commercial real estate transactions, the buyer finds a property, negotiates a purchase contract with the seller, obtains financing from a commercial lender, and closes escrow.  However, a growing number of property owners are discovering that they can directly provide financing to buyers to sell property faster, ultimately generating more potential profits from interest income.

Owner financing for commercial properties gives buyers and sellers more control over the transaction and bigger profits by cutting out the traditional commercial lender as a middleman.”
