Many businesses in Perth need to rent or lease commercial property storage units for a variety of reasons. Some may require them during expansion when they’re temporarily overstocked, some take advantage of the short-term lease as they’re relocating or renovating, whilst others simply want more floor space for office work. Meanwhile, some online retailers need to lease product warehouses for order fulfilment. If you own a self-storage facility, there are things you must consider before serving the commercial market. Business looks promising if your facility is located near a commercial or industrial area. Even if you’re surrounded by residences and there are no business parks within a 5 to 10 mile radius, you can still offer storage for schools, small business owners, and housing contractors within your vicinity.

In spite of the benefits it offers, however, auctioning can be overwhelming for sellers. If you are looking to put your property on auction, these tips will prove indispensable. Tip no. 1: Be sensible. In many instances, the only factor that keeps a property from selling is the cost. Even if the property market looks promising, be realistic about your reserve price and ensure it is in line with your property’s assessed value and the market’s current state.
