How much does tenant representation cost?
Working with a tenant rep is almost always free for the tenant. Their commission typically gets paid by the landlord or the landlord's broker. A tenant who is represented by their own agent can rest assured that their interests are being advocated for at every step of the transaction. A tenant rep agent will offer advice on a range of critical details from competitive leasing strategies to renewal options. The tenant rep will also assist in negotiating a wide array of lease terms from operating expenses to tenant improvement allowances. As such, the cost-benefit analysis is clear - tenant representation is a huge advantage for tenants.
When should you hire a tenant rep?
One of the most common pitfalls a tenant encounters is touring properties without hiring a tenant representative. If you plan on hiring a tenant rep, do so in advance of going on a property tour. They can tell you a lot of information about the market and going rents in a particular area. A tenant representation specialist has only one party's interest in mind - the tenant's. Since they work for the tenant, they are your advocate and will make sure that your interests are well represented in the negotiating process.
