I’ve reasoned for months that Southern California is immersed in a seller’s market — there are many more buyers in the market than sellers — advantage sellers!
Today, I want to discuss why commercial real estate might not sell.
After all, with more buyers around than sellers, an owner should be flush with offers, folks clamoring to buy — but nothing — just crickets. So what’s up?
Below, I offer some reasons why a building might not be in the sold category.
Your building is overpriced: As we’ve discussed in previous columns, asking prices can be tricky. Hopefully, you’ve looked at recently closed sales,
