There is a Brand New Retail Space in my community which I would like to buy and then rent out to a credit worthy Tenant. The problem is I would only like to buy it if I know I will have a tenant for it. So, how can I market the property to prospective tenants if I don't own it. Is there a way to do this? Does it make sense to approach tenants and tell them I am looking into buying the property if they would be interested in renting it? Is there away to do this?
Is there only one rental unit? Retail space is a tricky investment and usually requires a seasoned investor with plenty of reserves. You can check local brokers and see what their current vacancy is on similar properties.
