What Does a Commercial Property Manager do?

A commercial property manager is responsible for overseeing and managing non-residential properties like offices, retail spaces, warehouse facilities, shopping centers and industrial buildings to ensure their current and future value. Commercial property managers are tasked with all the responsibilities of operating an income-producing property.

Commercial property management involves being able to prioritize and execute a wide array of endeavors. Their duties might involve leasing and managing the property, providing timely maintenance and repair services, and ensuring the property is kept in a condition that meets the standards of local laws and regulations. They may also be responsible for managing the property’s finances, such as collecting rent, budgeting, and maintaining records. Commercial property managers may also handle tenant relations, coordinate advertising and marketing campaigns, and provide regular reports to the property owner(s).

How Much Does Commercial Property Management Cost?

Generally speaking, most commercial property management fees range from 4-12% of the gross monthly rent. However, the cost of commercial property management services can vary greatly depending on the complexity of the property, the particular services being requested, and the company you choose. Other factors to consider include:

  • The location of the commercial property
  • The classification of the commercial property (office, industrial, retail, multi-family)
  • The size and state/condition of the building(s)
  • The number of occupants and the complexity of their businesses
  • The additional services included in the commercial property management agreement

Does a Small Business Need Property Management?

In general, if a small business owns or leases a commercial property, whether it be an office space, a warehouse, or retail space, it may be beneficial to hiring a commercial property manager to help oversee the property. Again, a property manager can help your small business by providing essential services like maintenance, rent collection, supervising renovations and repairs, negotiating leases, conducting market and financial analysis, handling tenant complaints, creating budgets, and keeping small businesses up-to-date on laws and regulations that may affect your business. Essentially, a property manager can provide small businesses the peace of mind that you have an expert looking after your business.
