Like all commercial real estate (CRE) sales, warehousing business requires an extensive scrutiny and understanding of the property structure, zoning laws, traffic, utility, future desirability of the property, the lease agreement, stability of the tenant and the type of business and its inherent business risk, condition of the property, environmental laws and liability from past & present uses. To complicate it further, majority of the warehouses are owned by absentee owners and poorly managed by property management companies who do not have specific training to adequately manage the tenants from both the business prospective and environmental regulations.
