Consider what makes your property different and how you want it to come across to other people. As you market it online, be sure to be clear about the amenities and
Of course, you can increase the value that you receive from a commercial property by also increasing the rent for your tenants. Sometimes this is necessary to keep up with inflation and building costs. But these are other great ways to help give your tenants more bang for their buck.
