Whether your project is commercial, residential, or retail; it is always a good idea to do your research and put the proper context in place to make sure you can retrieve as much of your capital as possible when and if the time comes for you to rent or sell.
1.Let your budget be your guide.
The most important document you will create and reference is your budget. Blueprints and building plans are important, but your budget will direct your site selection, floor plan, finishing materials, and landscaping choices. If building an investment property, your budget should also include a contractor which can help direct the conversation so that you consider all angles and make the most knowledgeable choices. The experts at Maxx Builders and Designers would be glad to help with this.
2.Looks are important, but they aren’t everything.
It is true that a building’s visual aesthetic plays an important part in its marketability. A building’s curb appeal, exterior materials, parking, interior and exterior design ambiance, all play a role in how appealing it will be to the next purchaser or rent tenant. This is significant for both residential owners and commercial investors. A building’s form and function are equally important, but ultimately function will always win. This is where the design team at Maxx Builders and Designers will come in to help make the space as efficient as possible.
3.Don’t underestimate the location.
A building’s location makes an immense difference in how attractive it is to buyers and to customers. As an investor, this is one of the most important decisions you will make. If you aren’t sure what to look for when selecting a site, obtain the help of one of our experts at Maxx Builders.
4.Don’t fall victim to the most common pitfall.
Often investors head directly to an architectural designer for their building design needs. However, an architect’s expertise is in design and not construction cost. So it is important to also have a contractor to help facilitate and guide the design conversation. At Maxx Builders and Designers, our team consists of both construction and design specialists that will mediate the process, helping you choose the unique design elements you love while staying within the business plan of the investment.
5.Use your resources.
When you gather a team of expert contractors, engineers, architects, and real estate agents together, you are certain to make knowledgeable, secure decisions from the beginning.
