Relocating or opening a new medical office is one of the most significant business decisions you can make. A good healthcare real estate agent, at minimum, will provide a few important services: guidance in choosing the best location, negotiating the most competitive rates and terms with the landlord or seller and assist in assembling the rest of your team. An attorney ensures all the legal terms of the lease or purchase contract that your real estate agent negotiated on your behalf are drafted to protect your interests in the short and long term, along with ensuring you have the proper entity structure and more.
The next two roles needed on your team are a lender and architect. Healthcare providers have unique financial and space plan / layout requirements that are different from general commercial real estate.
