Targeting Commercial Property Managers- Which One?
We see the term used all the time but newer people to the commercial market dont realize there is several different kinds. They all have different needs, different value propositions.
Apartment Complexes– cheap ~
Non-Profit- usually for disabled, juvenile, senior
can be 1 building or independent homes/apartments
Military– dont have any experience
Class A office space- full service meaning the tenant pays one price and PM provides everything
usually multi-story types with the highest quality materials like real wood, stone, etc.
Class A office space– cleaning not included, usually 1 story types but not always
Class B- same as A but use cheaper materials and provide less service
Misc Landlords- just like carpet cleaners, tons and tons of landlords that own 1 or 2 properties
be careful ;
Office Parks– lots of distributors, manufacturing, medical but can be anything.
Usually they have a theme and tenant handles all cleaning but not always.
Can contact tenant AND PM for move outs
Retail strip malls– mainly for move outs from PM. Rare the PM includes cleaning for tenant
Malls- very little experience, once in a while a store will call.
Nursing Homes/senior living– usually in house cleaning but many contract out carpet.
