Commercial Broker Vs. Residential Broker, and Which One is Right to Sell Your Multi-family Property?

There are many reasons why people buy real estate, whether it is a primary residence or an investment. As a result, there are two types of real estate agents – residential and commercial. Since there are differences between commercial and residential agents and firms, you want to ensure you are working with an experienced commercial broker when selling or buying an investment property.

Significant differences between commercial and residential brokers can make much money or lose out. Find out the differences, benefits, and which broker is right for your investment needs with IPRG real estate investment and advisory firm.

The Difference Between Residential and Commercial Brokers

The main differences between residential vs. commercial brokers are the properties they deal with. Residential real estate brokers work with single-family homes, condos, or co-ops. In contrast, commercial brokers deal with properties with an investment component to the real estate, such as multi-family or mixed-use properties.
