When talking about real estate, location is everything. You could build an amazing commercial space, but if it’s in the middle of nowhere, you’re probably not going to get too many customers. Here at Tomarchio Enterprises, we’ve been providing Marylanders with our commercial real estate services for years, and wanted to talk about a few reasons why location is so important.

Target the Right Audience for Your Business

Different types of businesses have different client audiences that they want to reach, and choosing the right location is a key factor when attempting to attract your audience. Different towns and areas have different demographics. You should look up census information online, or consult with a Maryland commercial real estate company, to look for Maryland cities that have favorable demographics for your business.

Watch for Rising and Falling Property Values

Real estate prices are influenced largely by what other local properties are selling for. So if you’re looking to buy a property in a developed area, the real estate prices will probably be much higher than a less developed area. Property values fluctuate over time, and the best way to keep up with market changes is to work with a professional Maryland commercial real estate agent.

What Kind of Competition is Around? What Kind of Complementary Businesses?

When considering which commercial space to choose, you need to consider what kind of local competition is around, as well as what kind of complementary businesses. Competitors are businesses that sell the same goods/services you do, and will pull customers away from your business. A complimentary business sells goods or offers services that make your goods/services better. A good example would be a vitamin/health store opening up near a gym. Both businesses attract the same audience (young health-conscious people) and each business will help drive customers to the other.
